Chanel’s promotions pass on to another generation, with Lily-Rose Depp, daughter of Vanessa Paradis, helming the promotion for its cruise 2020–1 collection, Balade en Méditerranée, on sale from November 23.
The campaign, shot in June near Paris, was photographed by Karim Sadi.
Depp said, ‘As well as for a vacation, this collection is very easy to wear in your daily life. It’s very wearable and effortlessly chic.
‘What I think is really special is that everything is so mix-and-matchable.’
She can see herself taking the collection with her on holiday in the French Riviera, and likes the tweed tops, pants and skirts in the collection.
Acknowledging the times, Depp says some of these items could complement what one already has in the wardrobe.
The one accessory that resonates with her the most is the small basket bags, which she feels is reminiscent of ‘going on vacation and having a little beach basket’; and the sunglasses, which ‘allow me to read in the sun.’
She also praises Virginie Viard, the house’s artistic director, whom she has known for many years. ‘I adore her. She has an elegance and a grace about her that’s very characteristic of the Chanel woman. It’s evident in everything she does.’
