Sac du jour

March 10, 2011

Blake Lively is photographed by Karl Lagerfeld for the new Chanel Mademoiselle handbag campaign.

Today on Sac du jour we shine the spotlight on Chanel via Blake Lively, the face of the new Chanel Mademoiselle handbag collection.

Our gal has been wearing Chanel handbags for a while and she’s a mighty good promoter, toting them to many events and making sure they’re photographed to their best play. Karl Lagerfeld’s foray into photography would hardly be complete without a campaign starring one of his current muses and so here we have the Mademoiselle handbag collection on the arm of an expert.

In an interview with WWD, Blake explained: “I have such a respect for fashion and such an appreciation for it that if there are people like Karl Lagerfeld out there designing, who am I?” she asks. “I want to bow down to them and be a representative for them if they’ll have me.”

We scoped out the goods and as you’d expect, it will set you back a few Gs to get your Chanel Black Pearl manicured nails on one of the pieces from the collection. Fondling at the store is no charge although the sales staff never really approve.

Want more Chanel?

Of course you do. First, behind-the-scenes photos of the Kaiser himself helping stage the campaign:


And now, feed your fantasies with the campaign video: a truly fantastic little piece of handbag porn:
