CHANEL is partnering with the ‘César Révélations’ dinner for the third consecutive year in support of young French film creatives. The House and The French Academy of Cinema Arts and Techniques gave ‘carte blanche’ to director Lukas Dhont, ‘Caméra d’or’ award winner at the 2018 Cannes Film Festival, to portray these 36 promising names.

The soft, comfortable lines of the Spring-Summer 2020 pre-collection emphasise the masculine-feminine spirit that is emblematic of CHANEL, further illustrated by the choice of materials such as satin, leather, tweed, denim and cotton poplin. Photographed by Leïla Smara.
CHANEL is partnering with the Cinémathèque française to present a full retrospective of Jean-Luc Godard between January 8th and March 1st. Sixty years ago, 'Breathless’ was first released in cinemas. Since then, the name Godard has been synonymous, for film fans the world over, with both the freedom of the Nouvelle Vague and the most rigorous modernity.
