Besides Singapore’s day in the sun next week which will see Chanel debut her Cruise 2013/14 collection in Dempsey Hill, Chanel and Karl Lagerfeld will also be presenting his new film, ‘Once Upon A Time…‘ at a private screening to be held at Raffles Hotel.
Written and directed by Karl Lagerfeld, the short film was specially commissioned for the Cruise 2013/14 collection and perhaps a hint of things to come. Celebrating the 100th anniversary of Gabrielle Chanel’s boutique, which she opened in Deauville in 1913, the film stars a bevy of stars and models, with Keira Knightley as Gabrielle Chanel, along with Clotilde Hesme, Stella Tennant, Lindsey Wixon and Jamie Bochert.
Personally I’m most excited about Brad Kroenig, who will be making an appearance in the film alongside son Hudson, the perfect father-and-son duo that the Kaiser always uses for his runway presentations.
And before I sign off, here’s a short teaser, courtesy of Chanel. Do note that for those of you who won’t be able to make it in person at Raffles Hotel on 8 May, Chanel will be screening ‘Once Upon A Time…‘ online via Chanel News at 8.30 pm Singapore time.
