Northern Women in Chanel by Peter Farago & Ingela Klemetz-Farago


“It was a fashion journey,” says stylist Ingela Klemetz-Farago of the epic art project she recently completed with her husband, photographer Peter Farago. The Swedish couple crossed Arctic plains and ancient forests with suitcases full of couture for Northern Women in Chanel. The new book they've created with Chanel is an ode to ethereal models of Scandinavian and Baltic descent, many of whom have played muse to creative director Karl Lagerfeld (who also wrote the book’s preface). Carmen Kass, Helena Christensen, and Freja Beha Erichsen are among the Nordic beauties featured in the 384-page portfolio, due out soon, with a portion of the proceeds going to Save the Children.

With unlimited access to Chanel’s archives, the duo shot close to 300 looks by the house in little over a year, including one-of-a-kind pieces dating back to the early 1920s. “We’re so close to nature here,” says Farago, who was inspired by Ingmar Bergman’s earthy heroines. “That strength and honesty makes for a graceful, down-to-earth kind of femininity.”

Touring exhbition of Northern Women in Chanel starts at Fotografiska in Stockholm, June 30th
