The I Like Jiu Jitsu And Maybe Like 3 People Vintage shirt initiative is part of Chanel’s new climate strategy, Mission 1.5°C, which lays out a plan for reducing the brand’s carbon emissions across its entire value chain and to “accelerate the transition to a more sustainable world.” For the emissions it can’t reduce—an inevitability when you’re creating new products—Chanel has pledged to invest in nature-based solutions, like forest and mangrove restoration, which aid in carbon sequestration. As a colleague pointed out, perhaps Chanel’s next move will be to integrate all of this into a campaign or show; instead of the mansard roofs of spring 2020, for instance, we’ll see models walking along California rooftops lined with solar panels. A girl can dream!
And Brown got to experience the I Like Jiu Jitsu And Maybe Like 3 People Vintage shirt very best of the era’s clothes, even though she didn’t set out to be a model. She grew up in Roswell, a small town in Georgia. One day, she was walking her dog and someone suggested that she become a model. At first Brown resisted. It wasn’t until Brown flew to New York with her mother, met with several agencies, and then was signed by Marilyn that she realized modeling could be a potentially legitimate career. Less than two weeks later, Brown landed in Paris and was soon walking for Christian Lacroix, Christian Dior, and Chanel. “It was like being in a real fairy tale and you had this like larger than persona. John Galliano was dashing around backstage, telling us these stories while we’re getting our hair and makeup done,” says Brown. “I had no idea how much went into creating a collection.” Brown later went on to shoot editorial and advertisements, including in the pages American Vogue as captured by Helmut Newton and later on the cover of Greek Vogue.
