Alice Dellal, the rebellious, crop-top and steel-toe boot loving model and musician, has been handpicked by Karl Lagerfeld to pose for Chanel’s newest Boy handbag collection. This may seem like an unlikely pick, but with the bag’s tough chain and industrial lines, the tomboyish Dellal is a fitting choice. The sister to footwear coquette Charlotte Olympia and daughter to ‘70s top model Andrea, this part-Brazilian, part-British, part-Iranian Thrush Metal drummer is best known for her brazenly half-shaven head. And make no mistake, she was one of the first to sport the daring do before it became a trend. Her punkish London look combined with Chanel’s signature refinement makes for a chicly insolent fashion statement. Following in the footsteps of other unexpected Chanel handbag ambassadors such as Lily Allen and Blake Lively, check out behind-the-scenes shots from the making of the campaign.
