The Twilight Saga actress Kristen Stewart is style legend Karl Lagerfeld’s latest muse for the stunning Chanel Eyewear SS15 campaign. Who knew someone thought to be so cold could be so cool!
The allure of Chanel eyewear lies in so many things but its timeless beauty and versatility tops the list. As a trailblazing woman herself, Mademoiselle Coco Chanel truly understood how to create pieces to compliment all women, and Lagerfeld intuitively translates this vision for style seekers today- breathing new life into every inch of the brand. Is it any wonder that he would call upon the fresh, edgy and undeniably stylish Stewart to front his latest collection?
Chanel released its full Spring/Summer eyewear campaign imagery consisting of beautifully shot black and white images- perhaps alluding to the collection’s instant classic status- that left us awe struck as the 24-year-old ‘actress transformed into a charming photo-reporter, her gaze framed by the new optical eyewear and sunglasses of the House,’ explained the famed luxury French fashion house in a statement.
The young star looks high fashion in the shots. Stewart models a range of dazzling pieces from the upcoming glasses collection including a large pearl embellished aviator style, sleek cat-eye frames bearing the signature Chanel double C logo on the temples, a modernized pilot frame and a brilliant game changing, vaguely butterfly shaped optical made all the more riveting with Stewart’s edgy pixie cut swept to the side.
We’re inspired to peruse through our Chanel catalogue today to tide us over until this ethereal collection is released.
Kristen Stewart joins a very exclusive list of faces that have modeled for the adored Chanel brand in the past; this includes Claudia Schiffer, Linda Evangelista and Alice Dellal.
Gabrielle ‘Coco’ Chanel founded her brand in 1921, where she initially designed hats, in a boutique store in France. The brand is a luxury label that has a number of collections that mainly cater to females whilst also carrying a men’s range. Coco Chanel strongly believed in simplicity and luxury materials made for comfort and timeless styling. Her legacy lives on, almost a century later and remains to be one of the most desirable brands in designer labels history.
