Loyal Chanel muse Kristen Stewart is the face of the brand’s “Paris in Rome” Metiers d’Art collection, shot by Karl Lagerfeld himself. The campaign showcases the pre-fall 2016 collection that premiered in December at the Metiers d’Art show in Rome, the latest in Chanel’s series of globetrotting presentations.
Echoing the theme of both the collection and show, Stewart appears as a seductive Italian actress in her Parisian apartment sporting pre-fall looks provocatively paired with lace tights. To Lagerfeld, Stewart “is the perfect for the Chanel image of today,” he told WWD. And the adoration is mutual. The actress praised how the designer “always provides an environment for a story to unfold,” calling his guidance “felt and inspiring.” Most recently, Stewart and Lagerfeld collaborated on Once and Forever, a short film biopic where the actress plays Coco Chanel.
The campaign is expected to make its print debut in June magazines. Preview some of the images,courtesy of Harper’s Bazaar.
