In front of the Dutch photographic duo’s camera, the model Lola Nicon moves through Gabrielle Chanel’s legendary apartment at 31 rue Cambon, in Paris, surrounded by the designer’s bestiary and her symbols.
Lola Nicon embodies an irreverent punk heroine, languishing on the famous beige suede sofa in the salon or posing nonchalantly in the baroque décor of the dining room and study.
A casual and sophisticated allure, contrasting with the intimate universe of the designer.
In several scenes, a hibiscus flower recalls that of Jean Cocteau’s Testament of Orpheus, filmed at the Carrières de Lumières, in the village of Les Baux-de-Provence, the location for the CHANEL Cruise 2021/22 show.
The film of the show will be revealed today at 6pm Paris time on chanel.com.
