Karl Lagafeld’s full length short film, “Once Upon A Time”, has finally been released. The face of Chanel and newlywed, Keira Knightly, fills in big shoes as she plays fashion legend Gabrielle (Coco) Chanel. The black and white film brings you back to 1913 in Deauville, France when Coco opens her first boutique.
It’s always been said that the beginning is always the hardest. And Coco Chanel was no exception. Watch as she tries to land the perfect clientele and how the sophisticated women of Deauville inspired her designs. Oh, and you can see where the use of men’s underwear came from too.
