In a recent post, I mentioned that if I were stranded on a desert island, I would take a Chanel dress from the latest Haute Couture Collection. What was my surprise to recently discover a unique video featuring this collection, where models appear like angels in a soft glowing halo. Take a look:
This fascinating film was made by British Canadian director and photographer Trevor Undi. Also a writer, Undi has worked with Kanye West and the New York City Ballet aside from having put together other creative fashion videos.
I did not have the luxury of attending the event at the Grand Palais, but it did seems to me that Undi's film has managed to capture the magnificence of Karl Lagerfeld's work. Undi's editing is particularly brilliant. By giving his own rhythm to this runway, he seems to posses the ability of stopping time as if he wanted us to admire "l'élégance intemporelle" of Chanel.
