I personally really like this campaign. It feels so fresh compared to the other ones that Chanel has had in recent seasons. A very 80's-90's vibe to it. Especially love the first shot with Joan and Saskia, it's really striking. Also, I hate to ask, but when was the last time Chanel had an African American model in an advert? Far too long I suspect.

ummm...you'd be stiff too if you had to hold your body up for the shot on a balance bar.

Its been a long long time for sure. It was said that Kimora Lee did a campaign for Chanel couture when she's 13, so it was probably S/S 1988 or 1989.

So rare to see a black girl in RTW and couture ads, I dont know about cruise and pre-fall ones tho. Chanel used to have couture ad, but now they cut it.

Actually like it, was a bit nervous how it would turn out, but very nice, not feeling the footwear though.

Please, they could at least try balancing with some sort of grace or a cool pose, it's a fashion campaign, not the olympics...:p

I like the styling and Karl did a surprisingly good job with the lighting this time but I find the posing super awkward. Saskia looks like the girl that people laugh at in P.E. class because she's just awkwardly dangling there not knowing what to do. Even in the shot with Joan her body doesn't look tense while Joan looks very strong and lofty. I hope the rest of the shots will be better because it has a lot of potential to still be a good campaign.

Seems like Karl is returning to his roots. Vintage Chanel- in love.

I really like the bars shot, the light, the soft make up, the hair isn't distracting, it does show the clothes nicely overall

I was so nervous for Chanel but I think this has potential. The shoes are hideous to no end but Joan is working for sure. Hoping for a repeat season for her!

knowing that Karl shots this,it looks pretty cool and promising, thou I'm gonna miss Freja but it's a nice change of casts. Well let's hoping once again that Baptiste won't made any appearances
