Model and photographer Louise Parker snaps Chanel’s surf essentials
Mix Chanel with a dose of sun and surf and what do you get? Coco Beach, a brand-new capsule collection of sporty ready-to-wear and accessories inspired by Coco Chanel’s favorite French resort destinations, including Cannes, Deauville and Saint-Tropez (where Karl Lagerfeld was staying when inspiration struck). Los Angeles-based model and artist Louise Parker, who walked her first Chanel runway in 2013, put the pieces to the test—photographing herself poolside in lattice-printed espadrilles, swimwear, separates and cover-ups. “I love the colorful and graphic prints,” she says. “I look forward to wearing them in Malibu this summer.” Available at select Chanel boutiques; chanel.com.
