Debuting in steel and a plain or full-diamond bezel, the Code Coco is an elegant-meets-edgy bracelet watch that adapts not only the quilted finish of Chanel’s 2.55 handbag, but also its clasp. The latter reveals the black dial only when closed, thanks to the timepiece’s innovative and supple wraparound strap.
Lucia Pica: The Italian is one of the biggest disrupters in today’s beauty scene with her artistic techniques and love for bold hues. Made Chanel’s global creative designer for makeup and colour in 2014, she lends her modern eye and sophisticated hand to everything from new makeup products to campaigns.
Stella Tennant: The original aristocratic ’90s model who continues to be one of the industry’s most coveted faces with her mix of swan-like grace, androgyny and raw edge. Little wonder that she’s a regular in Chanel’s front row as well as campaigns, the most recent of which was Resort 2017.
Agnes Liely: Her official designation? Merchandising creation and development manager at Chanel Mode. What that means? She’s behind everything to do with decor and visual merchandising at the brand’s stores and events (ie without her, Chanel would probably be a lot less Instagrammable).
Virginie Viard: As the brand’s fashion studio director for over two decades, the quintessentially French chic role model is Karl Lagerfeld’s right-hand woman, interpreting his vision for every single collection. Enough said.
Kim Young-Seon: Dubbed Chanel’s “material girl” by Suzy Menkes, the South Korea native is artistic director of textiles and ready-to-wear at the brand’s fashion studio, in charge of buying and innovating the rich and highly luxurious array of fabrics used in every collection.
Alma Jodorowsky (left) & Alice Dellal: Long-time friends of the house, both are part of Karl Lagerfeld’s first wave of millennial celebrity scions-as-muses. Actress Jodorosky hails from one of Europe’s most famous film families (grandad’s the avant-garde director Alejandro Jodorowsky), while model Dellal lives up to her It girl status with her rebellious cool and blood ties that include model Andrea Dellal for mum and shoe designer Charlotte Dellal for sis.
