The shots aren't bad, but they don't differ that much from the candids and I don't see it working as a Chanel campaign either. On the other hand, the collection was so terrible that I'd rather focus on the NY buildings.

I like the first picture posted as a picture but not as an ad - it looks like a candid that someone edited in the Chanel logo for a photo shoot game on RTVG.

This photo is very good and would be even better if the clothes themselves looked good, actually the coat is OK but throw in the boots and bag and it is too wookie-fied.

Fabulous!!!

Overall, thumbs up for what we have seen so far.

The first shot posted is gorgeous IMO. I love the setting and concept he was going for. However in the last two shots, it doesn't work. The shot with Freja on the rooftop is terribly overdone by Karl, and the other shot looks bad, simply because Abbey looks so creepy there. Can't wait to see more balcony shots!

freja's solo shot is near perfect but the other two shots are mundane...

I guess I'm not that impressed with the first shot, because it just looks like the candids.
Freja and Abbey sure do compliment each other, they look terrific together.

I like it. I have to give all the credit to Abbey and Freja's chemistry over Karl though

I second this..and also, BORING COMPOSITION. Really, how Lagerfeld photographed Chanel's earlier campaigns were much better. There's no brand image captured, here. It's boring and tasteless.

The first one with Abbey is fail for me. The stairs and the shadow overpower the image too much.

The other two images are better, especially the one with the two of them. It's a very striking photograph.

For literally one of the worst collections of all time, this isn't so bad. I actually have to say that I think the first photo with Abbey on the fire escapes is really beautiful. I'm not so crazy about the other shots, but that's partially because the clothes are revolting.

Karl should quit designing and photographing.
It's imposible to make a good campaign with hideous clothes.

Really, Karl? I just don't get it. I would love the set at Berlin zoo and models with little polar bear. But, at least, the models choice was so right!

The first shot threw me a little b/c it doesn't feel very Chanel, but I love the one with Freja on the rooftop; it actually showcases the coat quite beautifully and the setting doesn't take center stage.
