Although it might be decades since you last asked Santa Claus for a Christmas present, this season could use a little holiday magic to ensure the perfect present appears under the tree. As a brand entity, Chanel’s greatest strength lies in stirring our deepest desires with artful pieces that balance sophistication and modernism, which is why we find the title of its ‘Coco Crush’ collection so befitting. We’re seriously crushing on the chic, understated elegance of Chanel’s gleaming series of bangles, asymmetrical earrings, cuffs, and rings, which feature etching that mimics the brand’s signature quilting. They say good things come in small packages, but the best things come in packages marked with interlocking “C”.
Adding to the desirability of the line is Keira Knightley, the face of ‘Coco Crush,’ whose je ne sais quoi is captured uniquely in the video above. In Chanel’s campaign, Knightley does her interpretation of “Le Tourbillon de la vie” from François Truffaut’s classic film Jules et Jim, which was originally performed by Jeanne Moreau. It might be impossible to borrow her chicness IRL – even if Santa is consulted on the task – but you can cop her elegant style with a gorgeous ‘Coco Crush’ piece of your very own.
