Get ready to add another fashion movie to your Netflix queue. The streaming platform's new, original docuseries, titled "7 Days Out," will debut on Dec. 21, and its premiere episode is all about Chanel, according to WWD.

The film, directed by Andrew Rossi of the Met Gala-focused film "The First Monday In May," follows Karl Lagerfeld and his atelier for an entire week as they prepare for Chanel's Spring 2018 Haute Couture show. Viewers will get a behind-the-scenes look at the French luxury house's inner workings, from Lagerfeld's Paris-based studio to his go-to show venue of the Grand Palais.

Though Lagerfeld has been the subject of documentaries before ("Lagerfeld Confidential" from 2007, for example), as has Chanel Haute Couture (Made2Measure has a five-part series called "Signé Chanel"), one can truly never have enough of learning what really goes on behind such a historic, $10-billion-dollar fashion company.

UPDATE, Wednesday, Dec. 12, 2018, 8:50 a.m.: The first trailer for Andrew Rossi's "7 Days Out" has arrived, and it includes teasers for the Chanel episode. Watch below:
