Project info

To celebrate the 100th anniversary of the first Chanel boutique opening in Deauville, Karl Lagerfeld has created the 18 minute short film, ONCE UPON A TIME.

Panalux are proud to have worked with DoP Xavier Arias and Gaffer Vincent Ricouxon this beautiful film serviced out of our Paris base and shot at the Cité du Cinéma.

Filming took place over two days and great care was taken to create an identical reproduction of the street where Coco Chanel's original boutique was located.

Actress and face of Chanel Keira Knightly stars as the young Gabrielle Chanel and is joined by French actress Clotilde Hesme and models Stella Tennant and Lindsey Wixson.
