We have been waiting for what feels like an eternity for Chanel’s latest campaign to drop and the wait is finally over. After Chanel’s overdone and somewhat peculiar Spring 2017 campaign with Arizona Muse, the iconic French fashion house is getting us excited for the new Karl Lagerfeld-designed Gabrielle handbag. To coincide with the release of the new It bag, Lagerfeld shot a handful of his muses wearing different variations of the bag, including Kristen Stewart, Cara Delevingne, Caroline de Maigret and, of course, Pharrell Williams. The first man to appear in a handbag campaign for Chanel (but not his first appearance as a Chanel ambassador), Pharrell comfortably models the black crocodile version of the bag, while also posing for one of Lagerfeld’s classic studio images (after the jump).
Unfortunately, our forum members weren’t feeling it. “I’m indifferent aboutPharrell’s shot. His desperation with being tied to anything Chanel related has reached epic proportions. It’s actually quite embarrassing. I’ve never seen someone so hungry for fashion acclaim. He’s now like a modern day Becky Sharp!” stated Benn98.
