Puerto Rican model, Joan Smalls has just been featured in the new Chanel spring/summer campaign. The images surfaced on the internet on Thursday. The campaign also features Dutch model Saskia de Brauw, with the models wearing clothes from the latest spring collection.
The models were shot on uneven gymnastic bars with the sea as a backdrop. Back in October Karl Lagerfeld (the designer) told Womenswear Daily that the ad was:
All about athletics and the sea.…It’s very modern sportif and in black-and-white.
The shoot was styled by former Vogue Paris editor in chief and Irreverent author Carine Riotfeld and shot by Karl Lagerfeld himself. Its nothing new that Chanel has debuted a new ad campaign, the news here is the fact that the models are of colour and for that we thank Mr Lagerfeld.
