Chanel Launches New Coco Neige Collection

Karl Lagerfeld has introduced yet another 2 standalone collections in addition to the 6 annual collections that he’s already doing for Chanel. This year, he launched Coco Beach for Summer 2018, which was only available in 26 stores globally, from June till mid-September. For Winter, there’s the first ever Coco Neige collection, dedicated to winter sports, the snow, and après-ski. And because it’s all about winter sportswear, it’s all about making the functional look fashionable. While there are no Chanel-branded skis and snowboards that we saw in the past collections, expect to find everything that references the Alpine lifestyle: soft padded down jackets, overalls lots of shearling on the bags and boots, velvet, denim, waterproof and windproof outerwear that come equipped with heat-sealed seams, ribbed-knit balaclavas, sunglasses that take inspiration from protective ski goggles, Chanel-branded crests and medals in the shape of snowflakes, ski-themed enamel pins, and gilets with mountain motifs.

Now, here’s the collection in all its glory, in a campaign shot by Karl, starring Academy Award nominee, Margot Robbie, who’s also the Maison’s ambassador.

This shoot was one of the greatest experiences of my career. The energy and vibe on set was so wonderful and collaborative. One of the first things Karl Lagerfeld said to me was that we never need to take ourselves too seriously. He has such a creative mind and he knows exactly what he wants and the minute he captured it, we were moving onto the next shot ~ Margot Robbie ~

 

The Coco Neige collection is now available in select Chanel boutiques globally.
