Chanel’s latest installment of its Inside Chanel video series explores the relationship the fashion house’s founding designer had with film. Chapter 28 “Gabrielle Chanel and Cinema,” released today, spotlights the many ways Chanel influenced film and how Hollywood likewise impacted her own career.
The Inside Chanel short films have reflected on the French maison’s history and its founder’s legacy, covering everything from the significance of the camellia motif to Karl Lagerfeld’s own words about Coco Chanel’s impact on fashion.
The newest short film uses archival footage and imagery to illustrate the close bond Chanel shared with motion pictures. Born just years apart, Chanel and cinema itself revolutionized how fashion was seen and felt. Throughout the 20th century, both became fixtures of modern culture, as Chanel defined the prevalent style of the times and the movies disseminated them on the big screen.
Delving into Chanel’s behind-the-scenes influence, “Grabrielle Chanel and Cinema” also highlights Chanel’s role as a costume designer and her collaborative work with film directors such as Roger Vadim and Luchino Visconti. In future chapters, the series will also explore other cultural facets that Chanel has impacted, including dance, literature, and music.
“Gabrielle Chanel and Cinema” is now available to view online.
