Lily-Rose Depp and Cara Delevingne Star In Space Age Chanel Campaign

Reluctant to call this silver clad Depp/Delevingne cocoon a meeting of young and old, because if Cara is old, we’re fucking ancient. And whereas Cara’s been in the Chanel family for many a year, Ms Depp is a newer sibling. And is about 12. Or something. That said, Lily is no Chanel virgin – she’s already got Chanel No.5 L’Eau campaign under her belt. That’s big. Her future is looking about as bright and glittery as the space age get-ups the girls are wearing. Remember the show with the big old rocket? It’s than one. Slightly reminiscent of those turkey blankets you might see wrapped around a comatose individual on a Saturday night, here, they are Chanel-ified with shearling, sitting alongside some pretty pretty gowns and tweedy tailoring. If you want to talk about a meeting of generations then let’s talk about Monsieur Lagerfeld, who shot the campaign with his own fair (gloved) hands and is showing no signs of any retirement plans. Thank god. The space-themed collection will be landing (geddit?) in stores this September. Get ready.
