We first shared the preview of the latest fashion short film to come from the house of Chanel a few weeks ago and now you can finally see the final product in full.

“Once Upon A Time…” was directed by Karl Lagerfeld and stars his longtime muse Keira Knightley as the effervescent Gabrielle “Coco” Chanel as she was just starting out in her fashion career.

Set in 1913, the film features a cast full of Chanel model favourites alongside the newlywed British actress.  the film closes with the quote “I love this new designer Chanel… I wonder what it would be in 100 years from now.”

Despite being entirely in black and white, the cinematography is stunning – every still is gorgeous. But don’t take our word for it, take a look for yourself!
