a dramatic short film “THE RETURN” is written & directed by CHANEL’s creative director KARL LAGERFELD.
this short film depicts episodes from the life and career of GABREILLE CHANEL, AKA COCO, portrayed by british-american actress GERALDIN CHAPLIN. the film will make its début on december 10 ahead of the designer’s métiers d’art 2013/14 fashion show, taking place this year in dallas, texas.
it focuses primarily on COCO CHANEL’s return to the fashion scene, and on the reopening of her couture house in paris in 1954. KARL 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.
