Pharrell Williams and Cara Delevingne have reunited as the stars of Chanel’s ad campaign. Pieces from the French fashion house’s pre-fall Paris-Salzburg Métiers d’art collection were featured in the campaign, which is inspired by the Sound of Music.
This is not the first time that the dynamic duo has worked together. Last year, the Grammy Award-winning singer/songwriter/producer and the London supermodel/actress/singer teamed up for Chanel’s short film/music video called “Reincarnation.” The film tells the tale of Chanel’s founder, Gabrielle Chanel, and her inspiration for the jacket synonymous with the brand. The video is a celebration of Chanel’s pre-fall 2015 collection, which was first shown at a fashion show in December 2014 in Salzburg, Austria.
Lagerfeld held a second fashion show in New York last month. Pharrell and Cara performed their Chanel-commissioned song, “CC The World,” at the star-studded event, which included Beyoncé, Kendall Jenner and more.
The Chanel ads show Pharrell and Cara wearing colorful fair isle sweaters, thigh-high lace-up boots and chic outerwear, which will hit stores and Chanel.com this June. They are also joined by an adorable mini model and Lagerfeld muse, 6-year-old Hudson Kroenig, for the campaign.
It’s not surprising that Lagerfeld chose Pharrell, who is fashion superstar in his own right. Pharrell will be presented with the CFDA’s Fashion Icon Award in June. The 41-year-old heads two clothing brands-Billionaire Boys Club and ICECREAM-and has collaborated with brands like Adidas, UNIQLO and G-Star RAW.
Cara (those fabulous brows though!) was the face of Chanel’s Resort 2013 campaign. She was also the face of numerous Burberry campaigns. She has been featured in several ad campaigns, appeared on dozens of catwalks, photographed for countless magazines and has been in eight films.
