If you’ve got a case of the Mondays, perhaps Chanel’s cute new short film with Keira Knightley will cheer you up. The actress plays Coco Chanel in the brand’s latest Karl Lagerfeld-directed short film, and we’ve got a preview right here.
Knightley, alongside male, female, and child models like Stella Tennant, Lindsey Wixson, Caroline de Maigret, Tallulah Harlech, Brad Koening, and his son, Hudson, go back in time to 1913 when the legendary designer opened her first boutique in Deauville, France. The house has released a sneak peek at the film titled Once Upon a Time…, and in the black-and-white video below, we get a first look at Knightley as the boyish Coco, and Wixson as a rich and snobby American shopper. Since the town of Deauville currently bares no resemblance to its former fashionable glory, Lagerfeld created a faux set in Paris.
Chanel is screening the full film in Singapore on May 8, one day before the house hosts its cruise collection, but everyone else can watch it online then. In the meantime, catch the preview below:
