for the Spring 2012 Chanel campaign
For the spring 2012 Chanel campaign, the multi-talented Karl Lagerfeld photographed current muse Saskia de Brauw and the gorgeous Joan Smalls getting physical with some seaside gymnastics equipment. I fell in love with this campaign the moment I saw it. I love the vintage feel, the slicked back hair, and moody black-and-white images. Shot at the Hotel du Cap Eden Roc, Herr Lagerfeld captured the girls in seemingly death defying poses, beautiful in their graceful athleticism, with the vastness of the ocean as the backdrop. See the complete campaign and a behind-the-scenes video of its creation below.
