Starting from the historic photos by Gabrielle Chanel in Great Britain, Creative director Virginie Viard entrusted American filmmaker and actress Sofia Coppola with the creation of a video that summarized the role of Manchester in the twentieth century from sport to music to culture. With New Order’s soundtrack through the historic hit Blue Monday, a kaleidoscope, a sequence, a puzzle of images and videos represent the British city throughout its post-war history. A short film featuring an energetic collage.

In the teaser it’s also possible to get the preview of the MCR 2023-24 through the shots by British photographer Jamie Hawkesworth. Models, young Mancunians, from an open casting present some clothes from the collection.
