See “Reincarnation,” the new short film by Karl Lagerfeld, featuring Pharrell Williams, Cara Delevingne and Géraldine Chaplin.
Karl Lagerfield said, “It was time to show the origins of the Chanel jacket. ‘Reincarnation’ is the story of a lift attendant’s jacket being reincarnated as a timeless piece of women’s wear.”

Karl Lagerfeld had imagined an episode from the life of Gabrielle Chanel.
Embodied by Geraldine Chaplin, Gabrielle Chanel is holidaying in the suburbs of Salzburg in 1954.
At her hotel she meets a young lift-boy played by Pharrell Williams who wears a jacket
which would later inspire the iconic Chanel jacket.
"Reincarnation" will be screened in Salzburg and on chanel.com on December 1st, 2014 the night before the Paris-Salzburg 2014/15 Métiers d'art show.
