When the clock strikes midnight, the paintings of Empress Sisi and Emperor Franz Joseph come alive, aka Cara Delevingne and Pharrell Williams, in the new Chanel film ‘Reincarnation‘ by Karl Lagerfeld.
Dancing the Waltz and singing the lyrics to the song ‘CC The World’ composed by Pharrell, Cara and Pharrell are like the characters from Toy Story (or is it more Harry Potter inspired?). Lifeless until the clock strikes midnight (although of course the toys pretend to be lifeless whenever humans are present).
In ‘real life’ dancing Sisi and Franz Joseph have as doppelgängers Cara and Pharrell. Both Cara and Pharrell work in a hotel with the paintings of Sisi and Franz Joseph. Cara as a waitress and Pharrell as a bellboy. The latter dressed in a custom made jacket which inspires Coco Chanel to make her famous Chanel jackets (do check out Coco Chanel’s gorgeous jewellery. That cuff is amazing…).
The film “Reincarnation” is created and directed by Kaiser Karl to accompany the Chanel Paris-Salzburg 2014/15 Métiers d’art collection to be shown on 2 December 2014 in Salzburg, Austria. And both Cara and Pharrell will face the campaign of the Paris-Salzburg 2014/15 Métiers d’art collection.
Watch Reincarnation above. Have a look at the making off as well.
