Chanel has launched its first culture-focused podcast ready for your lockdown entertainment. The series pairs innovators from film, fashion, art, architecture, dance and music to discuss the challenges of the past 12 months and what it means for the future of the arts.
The star cast includes Keira Knightley, Pharrell, Tilda Swinton and director Lulu Wang, as well as designer Es Devlin, editorial director Edward Enninful, curator Andrew Bolton and dancers and artistic directors Akram Khan and Tamara Rojo. Some are old friends, others ‘meet’ for the first time for the series, entitled Chanel Connects.
Each episode, self-recorded from respective homes and studios, explores how the pandemic has changed culture and our perceptions of it, as galleries, museums, and stages prepare to reopen to a radically transformed world. Chanel global head of arts and culture Yana Peel said that the podcast will highlight a positive future.

“While galleries, stages and studios have been dark, artists have not stopped creating and imagining new ways forward,” she said. “Chanel Connects sees cultural game-changers delve deep into their imaginations to share ideas across disciplines, projects and institutions. As well as fascinating insight into the minds of today’s most creative innovators, it’s a prescient reminder to continue supporting the arts, championing what’s next and celebrating work that has the power to transform lives and wider society.”
Chanel Connects will sit alongside the brand’s 3.55 podcast, which launched in 2017. It is available now through Spotify, Apple and Chanel.com.
