Coco Chanel comes to life in Karl Lagerfeld’s ‘The Return’

Posted on

In around half an hour, this short film depicts episodes from the life and career of Gabrielle Chanel, aka Coco, portrayed by British-American actress Geraldine Chaplin. The film will make its debut on December 10 ahead of the designer’s Métiers d’Art 2013/14 fashion show, taking place this year in Dallas, Texas.

“The Return” focuses primarily on Coco Chanel’s return to the fashion scene, and on the reopening of her couture house in Paris in 1954. Karl Lagerfeld also hopes to underscore the designer’s relationship with American culture.

Charlie Chaplin’s daughter, who makes a very convincing Coco Chanel, is joined on screen by Rupert Everett, Anna Mouglalis, and Arielle Dombasle.

“The Return” will also be released on the Chanel website on December 10.
