Chanel has released part three of its campaign for the Gabrielle handbag, starring Caroline de Maigret and it’s a must-watch…

One month after sharing a celebrity-filled teaser campaign for Chanel's Gabrielle handbag, the French maison has now released a new video to the four-part series. While part one featured Kristen Stewart, and part two, Cara Delevingne, part three puts the spotlight on Caroline de Maigret in a two-minute monochromatic film where she explores the spirit of Gabrielle 'Coco' Chanel in a Parisienne apartment.

Shot through the lens of French film director Olivier Assayas — who also directed the Kristen Stewart-starred movie, Personal Shopper, in Oman — Maigret discovers a diary marked with the 'Gabrielle' signature before walking into a photo studio where the handbag sits pretty atop the fireplace. Placing the coveted bag over her shoulder, she poses around the room before heading out onto the streets of the French capital.

Watch the new Gabrielle video above and then, discover the latest video from its Inside Chanel series, titled The Time of Chanel, which focuses on the aspect of time.
