Vanessa Paradis for Chanel Coco Cocoon

Chanel Coco Cocoon Collection Spring 2010

A few months back it was announced that Vanessa Paradis would replace Lily Allen as the face of the Chanel Coco Cocoon collection.  Paradis is the Chanel “it girl” of the moment and she must have Uncle Karl smitten as she’s snagged the Chanel Coco Rouge & Coco Cocoon campaigns.

The second Chanel Coco Cocoon collection was recently released and chanteuse Vanessa Paradis provides the face and soundtrack for the collection.  The images, shot by Karl Lagerfeld, are beautiful and alluring in soft black and white and feature Paradis lovingly clutching various styles of the Cocoon collection.  The campaign shots and collection photos all play to the tune of Paradis’ “L’Incendie”.

Coco Cocoon features several styles of bags in quilted nylon and lambskin, with some boasting Orylag trim (fancy French rabbit fur).  I love the Coco Cocoon collection because they are updated takes on the iconic Chanel quilting pattern reworked into very modern, practical wearable bags.  These are the types of bags that you can use for weekend travel or for everyday use – you can fit your laptop and then some!  View pictures from the campaign and collection below.
