Timothée Chalamet is teasing fans with a Chanel collab

The actor took to Instagram to reveal that “CC X TC OTW”.

Timothée Chalamet has announced a luxury collaboration with the iconic Chanel via an Instagram post. His caption read “CC X TC OTW”, featuring an image of the Chanel logo with ‘CC’ in monochrome black and white.

Albeit a cryptic announcement, fans are now speculating as to what this collaboration will entail. A potential menswear line? A new red carpet ambassadorship? Chalamet was recently spotted filming a commercial with Goodfellas director Martin Scorsese for Chanel’s fragrance Chanel Bleu in New York City, so perhaps the new face of the luxury brand is working on more. 

The young actor will not be the first male ambassador to have partnered with the French luxury womenswear house, however. Back in 2010, Pharrell Williams appeared in their fashion films for the Paris-Salzburg Métiers d’Art 2015 collection. The creative multi-hyphenate caught the attention of the late Karl Lagerfeld and went on to walk on Chanel’s runway and design capsule collections. Williams helped create the first unisex collection in 2019. 

Though it is uncertain as to the extent of what this collaboration will reach, fans are both excited and tentative about the news. Some are hoping that his red carpet looks will not be compromised by the news, and others are eager to see the Chanel commercial and what this collaboration will truly mean. It is only a matter of time before “CC X TC” is officially “OTW”.
