For a man with many muses, it’s nice to see that Karl Lagerfeld isn’t opposed to revisiting an old favorite once in a while.
To front Chanel’s spring 2014 eyewear campaign, creative director Lagerfeld cast model/socialite/punk rocker Alice Dellal — who previously appeared in ads (and a short silent film) for the French house’s Boy bag in both 2012 and 2013.
The new campaign, photographed by Lagerfeld himself, shows a much softer side of Dellal than we’re used to seeing: Gone are her numerous tattoos, half-shaved head, and ripped tights, replaced instead by Easter egg pastels and some sweet little flowers tied into her hair. There’s even a rumpled baby pink boucle jacket visible in the background.
We’re thinking the only thing that could possibly make the whole scene any sweeter would be a co-starring appearance by KL’s other long-standing muse, little Choupette. Which, speaking of — isn’t it about time she got her own Chanel campaign?
