Having worked closely with the house for many years, Kristen Stewart knows a thing or two about what makes an excellent Chanel collection, and the actress has opened up about her favourite pieces from the most recent Métiers d’art show, what makes creative director Virginie Viard's designs so special, and the collaboration between designer, photographer and ambassador on a campaign shoot.
Speaking to Caroline de Maigret in our exclusive video about the collection and the accompanying Juergen Teller-shot campaign that Stewart stars in, the actress discusses her favourite piece, saying: "This clearly was designed by, created by, built by a woman, and I could feel it."
The new campaign was shot by Teller at the Château de Chenonceau, a 16th-century castle in France's Loire Valley, which had served as an inspiration for the collection, and was the location of the show last December, where Stewart had been the only guest.
In the campaign, the actress tried to evoke the silhouette of the women who have lived at the castle, attempting to channel the historical background of the iconic property, she explains.
"This house is laced with loss but also clearly a lot of love," Stewart says. "I thought of all the women who came before me, and all the stories folding in on each other and tried to find the new version."
