Blake Lively Mademoiselle Chanel Campaign

Here is the first look at the latest Chanel campaign featuring the official ambassador, hip actress Blake Lively, as well as special “behind the scenes images” of Ms. Lively’s shoot with Karl Lagerfeld. Blake Lively has been chosen by Karl Lagerfeld to represent Chanel with her fresh, youthful image and her innate sense of fashion. She says “it is an honor to be selected by Karl Lagerfeld to represent the new line of “MADEMOISELLE” handbags”

MATERIALS, COLORS AND EXPERTISE Following in the footsteps of its fashionable forbears, The “MADEMOISELLE” bag disdains all but the noblest materials. It is presented in superb leathers – the most refined calfskin and lambskin ? and the most sophisticated jersey cloth and satins. Equally charming and precious are the delicate scales of alligator skin or the subtle, pearly sheen of shagreen. The gaze is irresistibly drawn to a hue of vermillion red, powder pink or orange, or a rather more conventional combination of black and midnight blue. The gilded, metallic, iridescent or varnished lambskin is a delight to behold. The various versions explore the elegance of the famous quilting, manufactured using special techniques that are and will always remain a jealously guarded secret. Small leatherware items that are quite indispensible and leave no desire unfulfilled.

CHAIN REACTION The iconic chains are an innovative marriage of function with form, whether on the shoulder, wrapped around the wrist, or worn across the chest. The precious chain darts in and out of eyelets on the exotic leather bags. The famous interweaving chains are fluid, elegant and comfortable, softened with a small shoulder pad. And the double “C”, as a playful, precious charm, adds a playful touch.
