Chanel’s resort 2020 campaign brings the elegance back to train travel


Sharing is caring!

Caroline de Maigret, Soo Joo Park, Amanda Sanchez, Ola Rudnicka and Tami Williams star as the chicest train travellers we ever did see in Chanel’s new resort 2020 campaign. Making its runway debut during Paris Fashion Week in May earlier this year, the heritage fashion house took direct inspiration from its elaborate Le Riviera set—which itself evoked a take on a pre-war Le Train Bleu at Paris’s Gare de Lyon—for the quick-cut capturing of what train travel could be in the modern day. Between the stylish wears of each passenger, and the opulence of vintage train carriages, we dream of a day that our train commute reaches this level of elegance. [Vogue inbox]

Tiffany & Co. recently re-opened the doors of its Chadstone boutique after a major redesign.

With a more flexible store layout and a more immersive shopping experience on offer, the new store sees the reduction of barriers between clients and sales professionals and better accessibility to view new designs as the brand makes a move away from a permissions-based shopping experience.
