It’s one of the last campaigns Karl Lagerfeld photographed for Chanel. The Spring Summer 2019 show took place in the Grand Palais turned beach. The girls frolicked in the sand, the sea rippled softly onto the shore and the word Chanel dangled from diamond earrings and was stamped onto shirt pockets. It was carefree, feel good Chanel. For the campaign Lagerfeld had decided to photograph the collection on his chosen ones against a plain anthracite backdrop. Those pastel summer lemonade yellows, berry blues and technicolour tweeds are popping. The girls are still looking sun kissed, with that good glow in halter-neck silk scarves knotted as tops, tweed vests and slick to the skin pants. Fringed straw hats and juicy coloured knits are their uniform. It’s good to be a girl in Chanel. And it graces our cover, on newsstands now.
