From the studio to the ateliers, director Andrew Rossi was given unprecedented access to the brand and its creative director for one week prior to the presentation of 68 handcrafted looks emulating the spirit of la vie Parisienne. Chanel fans will remember that this was the couture celebration that saw Lagerfeld forgo his usual theatrics in the Grand Palais and construct a palatial French garden setting. How did he erect that 18th-century fountain and the surrounding rose-studded pergolas for the models to circle? The painstaking road to perfection will be revealed by Rossi, the man also behind The First Monday in May.
7 Days Out, which will be available on Netflix from December 21, is part of a larger 7 Days series exploring a week in the lives of visionaries from the fields of fashion, food, space, sports and entertainment. The inaugural episode centres on the house of Chanel.
