I don't like it. It's the total opposite of the collection. I hate how the styling looks so "sporty". Could Gymnastics be any more random? Chanel campaigns usually leave me feeling cold, but this just leaves me feeling lifeless.

Originally the campaign should have been Saskia and Claudia Schiffer, somebody or something definitely changed opinions right before shooting. Would have loved to see that combination though.
Carine has that much influence?? I'm surprised Karl let Claudia get cut.

Exciting cast but the end result is disappointing! It looks very outdated and the lack of color didn't really help anything. It's an uninspiring campaign.

i like it! It's so serene. Looks sporty but i think it's because of the olimpics next year.

Am I the only one that feels Carine and Chanel are just such a bad combination. While I respectively love both individuals, I feel Carine isn't doing wonders for Chanel. Last season was fine, but the styling here is complete sh**. Those somewhat okay sandals with socks? That whole ensemble on Saskia in the second image? Absolutely horrible. Plus, the casting couldn't be anymore worse than it already is. I also find it appalling making this a gym themed campaign IN black in white. Couldn't there have been a campaign showcasing those vivid pastel and metallic colors in some aquatic themed campaign? Now THAT would've been phenomenal.

Not bad I guess, actually reminds me of some Chanel ads from back when, with the surfboards and all...doubt this one is going to be on my list of favorites, however...

Now I really want to know what a Saskia and Claudia combination could have looked like!

I agree, I'm not a huge fan of Carine for Chanel.

This looks like a 90s Calvin Klein ad - except it doesn't have models of that kind of calibre (Kate Moss, Christy Turlington...). It's bland...

I like this one. Looks so calm and serene even though I'm not a fan of the two of them. It even looks an editorial from 90s Vogue Italia shot by Lindbergh.

Would have loved to see Claudia though since she was supposed to be part of this one.
