Chanel's The Return: a preview

'Can you be a b*tch?"

Ahead of next week's #ParisDallas show (yes, the next installment of Chanel's famous Metiers d'Art travelling catwalk bonanza now comes with its own hashtag), that clever Karl has given us a sneak peek at The Return, the film he'll be premiering there.

Following on from Once Upon A Time, which traced Gabrielle Chanel's early days in Deauville, this new film picks up the story as she prepares to open the doors on her now-iconic Rue Cambon boutique.

Geraldine Chaplin takes on the mantle of Coco - which isn't, as she explains in the clip below, as glamorous as you'd perhaps imagine.

See for yourself, and remember to mark 10 December in your diary - you'll be able to see the film in full then.
