    You had me at CHANEL! I’m a huge fan of their new line.
    I truly think everything (I mean, almost everything) Karl and his team does is beautiful and groundbreaking.
    I love the new campaign!

    Je sais pas trop ce qu’il nous raconté Karl, mais surement pas un truc très rigolo quand on voit la tronche que tirent les mannequins… Ok, ça fait surement super reac ce que je dis, mais on pourrait pas les voir sourire un peu ces demoiselles?… J’ai vu plus “ludique” et “drôle” que ces têtes d’enterrement…

  • Babe January, 22 2013, 2:37 / Reply

    For me, The model with the dark hair(pulled back) is a madame/ boss. Her choice of clothes are less playful like the other models who have on bright and playful outfits. Her choice of clothes and the way she pairs them with the shoes portray, power or boss b*tch to me. The boss model poses seem to be authoritative/commanding while the two girls are playful,fun,childlike/ submissive. Could it be that Chanel caters to the woman who is in control, runs the world and also to the woman who just doesnt take life seriously and just has fun?

  • Jessica January, 22 2013, 2:37

    I agree with this comment: though I see it more as a mother daughter relationship.The first shot is so much like how my room would look like (if I had a closet full of chanel of course;) after trying and discarding many outfits figuring out what to wear for the day/night or as a child when I ransacked my mom’s closet.

  • Alexandra January, 22 2013, 2:37

    I agree with Jessica! Completely mother/daughter! The mother is trying to teach her daughters how to be “ladylike” with classes and therapy and the “girls” are totally rebellious! I adore it! After all if Chanel isn’t for Mothers/daughters to share, then what is???/

    A mother who was a famous Geisha in her former life telling her story to her two daughters, wishing for them to be rebellious. Or the story might also be a simple message like… “Go shoe shopping and chat with your friends instead of spending your money for a shrink”…. Or a story about power and dominance as it is quite obvious that in most of the pictures the two models with the long hair are sitting or laying down…. I’m very curious! xxx

    Mmmm.. the story. I think these two young girls need some discipline: look at their room! Miss Rottenmeier (do you remember Heidi and Clara?) takes care of them, and teach them how to behave to become a perfect lady.. more or less.

    J’aime beaucoup aussi le côté bizarre, surtout sur l’avant-dernière photo… ce n’est franchement pas ce que l’on a l’habitude de voir ! Je crois que c’est justement ça qui me plaît. Ce n’est pas parfaitement cadré et surchargé, tout est simple, minimaliste, mais en même temps creusé dans le détail.
    J’aurai tendance à imaginer l’histoire d’une maman stricte (ou d’une nounou) un peu trop pesante et présente avec deux ados blasées. Bof, peut-être que je me trompe (sans doute), l’idée doit être beaucoup plus délicate et… créative. Je ne suis pas dans la tête de Karl (Dieu sait que j’aimerai !)

    hmmmm maybe discipline and the beauty of refinement? Chanel is for work and play….
    1) “messy” place who lives here??!!
    2) Ahh Two slouching girls and one who is “perfect”
    3) Sort out the lying down posing posture you two- practice, one, two, three!
    4) No…This is how it’s done watch and learn!
    5) Ah come on that’s not how Chanel girls should sit!
    6) Back to old habits lazing around again?!
    7) Break time, as drinking tea is an art- test time again, I will observe and mark you both!
    8) So much to learn, now practice lying on the sofa gracefully with your legs stretched soles on the floor…stretching is good for you.
    9) Voila! Disciplined graceful Chanel woman :)

    Practice makes perfect….

    Ah! Reminds me of Memoirs of a Geisha, the “strict” woman is Hastumomo, the two “girls” are Pumpkin and Chiyo. In the last photo, Pumpkin and Hatsumomo are together, Chiyo stands alone. Or maybe I’m just too in love with that book, ha!

    The thing I find funny is… it seems to have been shot in a Japanese room with traditional tatami. And, actually people don’t wear shoes on tatami – no high-heels either… (I am sorry!)

  • Blaise January, 22 2013, 11:36 / Reply

    What’s the story? I’m interested :) It seems like, it’s a prep school and the madame is teaching the two girls the proper Chanel prep. And she’s having a hard time teaching them (they’re still messy with their things!) and so she has to lie down, she’s got a headache. Hahaha :)

    If you’re really mean, you could say that he makes fun of other houses (or points to their issues) similar to his “No smoking” illustration: Take, for instance, Dior’s campaign, which I believe is stellar in terms of visuals; yet, the dominance of styling in the imagery puts a corset on the story (if there is any attempt to tell one) and implies that its all very serious.
    With Chanel styling (which, by the way, seems impeccable) isn’t the main point but rather a tool to tell a story allowing for more than a breath of humour. Since, I guess most people reading this blog agree that (at least subtle) humour is critical to fashion, this clearly highlights a potential flaw in the Dior campaign (in addition to it being a great Chanel campaign). I assume Lagerfeld must have been very amused about this shoot.

    C’est l’histoire de 3 filles qui sont bien déprimées et se rencontrent dans la salle d’attente d’un psy. L’une d’entre elle (avec le chignon et les noeuds dans les cheveux) est en fait life-coach, et dans un élan de motivation, se dit qu’elle pourrait essayer de soigner ses 2 nouvelles potes en talons. Du coup elle leur fait faire des activités marrantes, comme s’allonger sur un divan, ou dans un lit. Ou sur une table. Ou boire du thé. Sauf que ça ne marche toujours pas, toutes les trois n’arrivent pas à rire, ou même à sourire. Donc elles retournent toutes les 3 chez le psy. et portent des robes à nuage.

Où l’a-t-il choisi ? bref peut-être que mes questions resteront a jamais ouvertes…

    I’m seeing a strong Japanese theme. The tatami mats, the girls sleeping on blocks and kneeling during a tea ceremony. They seem to be experiencing varying degrees of comfort and discomfort based on their sleeping postures and the materials they’re sleeping on. Geisha’s in training…

    Hair Down Blonde is the narrator – she explains in voice over mode:
    Picture 1) – ‘We are the beautiful dolls of this doll’s house. Today is Friday and on Fridays we play a game that we call ‘ dress up well fast and find your chair’ – it is a spin on the Musical Chair game and as its name indicate you have to dress up well and fast and find a place to seat – be it a chair, a bed or a table. The last one to sit down is the loser! Hair Down Brunette and I love this game we are soooo good at it!
    Picture 2 : Look at us ‘Hair Down girls’ we are as fast as lightening – we dressed up, sat down and even had the time to strike a pose. Our Dark Hair Tied Up flatmate is not as fast as us – and she loses the first round…Too bad!
    Picture 3 : And here we show that we are even faster. I mean come on – we even get the time to lie down and think of England! And another loss for Dark Hair Tied Up! Is it me or she is getting upset?
    Picture 4 : My lovely friend Hair Down Brunette has gone to the ladies’ room – so I let Dark Hair Tied Up win. She has lost twice already so I feel generous – and beside a win without my lovely friend Hair Down Brunette is not a win!
    Picture 5: And Hair Down Brunette is back and we win again! We’re just too good right?
    Picture 6: This time we even have time to pick a similar shirt and lie in bed – Dark Hair Tied Up is getting very very upset.
    Picture7: You have to admit, she is truly a slow dresser! I mean come in– we even having the time to serve tea….
    Picture 8: This is getting serious – Dark Hair Tied Up is so upset, she doesn’t even want to look at us anymore – I think she feels singled out and isolated…
    Picture 9: It’s just a game and I want everyone to feel happy, I’m good like that (…) so I let her win the last round. And it’s with this standing ovation that I salute you all. See you next Friday!’
