To celebrate 100 years of Chanel‘s first boutique in Deauville, Karl Lagerfeld wrote and directed a short film Once Upon a Time… that will be unveiled in Singapore on Wednesday, 8 May. The movie tells the beginnings and the successes of Gabrielle Chanel played by Keira Knightley, a longtime spokesperson for the brand.

The film sees Chanel and a cast of well-heeled characters, from aristocrat Lady de Grey (Stella Tennant), to the writer Vita Sackville-West (Saskia de Brauw), in 1913 Deauville at the first Chanel boutique, which was re-created for the film.
