Luxury watch maker SAINT HONORE has appointed Kiera Chaplin, the Grand-daughter of Charlie Chaplin and great-grand-daughter of Nobel Prize winner Eugene O’Neill, as their new brand ambassador.
Kiera Chaplin started her career as a model at the age of 16. She appeared in leading fashion magazines such as Vogue, Elle or Vanity Fair and also in several brands’ campaigns, as well as Pirelli’s calendar. FHM voted her one of the top 20 most eligible women in the world. Later on, she looked into acting and appeared in several movies, including Oliver Parker’s adaptation of Oscar Wilde’s comedy The Importance Of Being Earnest and Bollywood movie Yatna. She finally got into film production, her first try being a documentary on Charlie Chaplin while he lived in Switzerland.
A few years ago, the brand Hogan Rebel invited her to create a shoe collection, and she is today designing her own handbag line. She is known for her work as film-producer with young film-makers, and is currently producing a television series on Hollywood.
SAINT HONORE met Kiera Chaplin at the Rallye Aïcha des Gazelles du Maroc, an off-road rally raid in the middle of the Moroccan desert. In 2017, she did take part in the rally raid with 2005 Miss France Cindy Fabre, and SAINT HONORE was their sponsor. A successful first try since their team finished 6th in their category. She then repeated the rally experience in 2018 with her friend Jazmin Grace Grimaldi, with SAINT HONORE’s support.
SAINT HONORE could not have dreamt of a better ambassador; with her elegance and charm, Kiera Chaplin perfectly represents the brand. Interesting detail: the Eiffel Tower, which inspired a flagship piece among SAINT HONORE creations, was inaugurated the same year her grandfather Charlie Chaplin was born.
She worked together with Frédéric Monceau to present the 2018 collection.
