After what seems like years of waiting, the pictures of Lily Allen for Chanel bags Fall 2009 campaign have finally surfaced.
The new Chanel handbag line is called “Coco Cocoon” which launches in October.
It’s a collection of reversible, lightweight nylon and lambskin bags in black, ecru, navy, or beige. Turn them inside out, and you’ve got the same tote, overnight duffel, or hanging garment bag in quilted garnet—the original lining colour of the house’s classic 2.55 bag.
As much as I didn’t particular like the idea of Lily Allen being the face of Chanel, she does make these hideous bags look really cute in the ad campaign.
I like the slight reference to “Breakfast At Tiffany’s”, plus I sense a bit of Victoria Beckham too.
Lily is still very much Lily in these ads. They haven’t tried to make her someone she’s not which I was initially worried about.
The pictures below in full colour paint a very ugly picture. Sorry Uncle Karl, but me no likey.
