Chanel Is Pairing Pharrell Williams and Cara Delevigne in a Romantic Fantasy
Duo Will Star in Branded Film Telling the Story of Chanel's Iconic Jacket
Nov 25, 2014
Could there be a more zeitgeist-y pairing than Pharrell Williams and Cara Delevingne? Chanel shows it has its finger on the pulse of culture with this teaser for a short film, "Reincarnation," directed by Karl Lagerfeld, that it will launch next week. Dressed in sumptuous 18th century costumes, the British supermodel and "Happy" superstar dance in an ornate ballroom, gazing lovingly into each others' eyes to the strains of a new song, "CC The World," that Williams has written for the project -- and it's alluring stuff.
The full film, based on the story of an elevator attendant who inspired Coco Chanel's iconic jacket, will be unveiled Dec. 2 at the Paris-Salzburg 2014/15 Metiers d'art collection in Salzburg, Austria. Williams plays the elevator attendant, Delevigne an Austrian empress in a dream sequence.
