Chanel celebrates the launch of its latest Resort 21 collection from Virginie Viard with a photo shoot with Karim Sadli lenses and Lily-Rose Depp. In the accompanying video, the French actress refers to her favorite pieces from the collection and discusses her relationship with the company’s creative director. BAZAAR.com spoke to the 21-year-old about her relationship with social media, the clarity that comes with a changing world, gratitude and the use of fashion to lift your spirits. It helps, of course, if it’s Chanel.
How have you treated the past seven months from a mental health perspective?
Lily-Rose Depp: I think it’s great that everyone is really talking about mental health right now. People really take the time to check with their friends and family to see how they are doing and how they are dealing with it. I think that’s a really nice thing that came out of that time – we’re all leaning on each other more than ever.
I was just like taking it one day at a time, and obviously there are ups and downs in all of that. I actually did a movie in Ireland that summer which was amazing. I was just so grateful to have the opportunity to go back to work. I know that I can experience this from a place with many privileges. I just feel very happy to be surrounded by my family.
Do you feel that your circle has become smaller, as if you were surrounding yourself with the same people? Even who are you talking to?
I think times like this … show you a lot about who is really, really dear to you. But I think the more you realize who you really, really miss, when you haven’t been able to see your friends in six months or more. I think it definitely puts a lot in perspective. And I think that a lot of people and I, hopefully, have thought a lot. It was also a great opportunity to just sit with yourself and give yourself the space to breathe and feel whatever you are feeling because obviously we don’t have all of the distractions we are normally used to. I think it’s been a really great growth period for a lot of people, a positive thing at such a scary time.
You recently had a big birthday. I’m sure it’s not what you imagined celebrating it, but how did you ring the doorbell? I suppose it’s a bit different if you’re not in the US, where 21 is such a milestone.
Well, I was in Paris for that. It was very small because it was when things opened up a little again in Paris. These restrictions eased over the summer. But I still had a nice dinner with my family and two of my friends. They are all French, but they were very much aware of the importance of the 21st birthday. We definitely celebrated and called it and it was really special. Definitely not what I expected. I feel like I’ve said this before, but I’m just postponing it. At some point there will be a 21st birthday. I look forward to it whenever it can be.

During all of this, how did you approach clothing and beauty? Do you just want to get dressed to feel better? Or are you in cashmere sweatpants mode?
I missed my clothes so much because I wasn’t in New York – where I live. I left all of my clothes there because when I left it was just before it all happened and I thought I would be back in a month. I only lived out of a suitcase that I packed in February. So I got pretty familiar with these clothes. But I was also in Paris and in Paris there is also my mother’s closet, which is very happy for me.
There were definitely a lot more sweatpants, more pajama vibes than usual. But I still honestly find days to dress up. You have to live a bit somehow. I definitely still have days where I just put on a full, cute outfit and do my makeup and everything. Why not? I have one of the little belly chains from the collection with me in Paris. And so, I’ve definitely found different cute ways to wear this.
You realize that you are dressing yourself more for yourself than you may have thought before, as if you just want to get dressed at times.
I also think it’s such a mood booster. The world has felt very quiet lately and there are only moments that are quieter than others. I guess when you are feeling bored or just downcast or whatever. It’s like a game to me. It’s just fun.
You don’t post an insane amount on social media, but you’re there and have a huge following. How do you see your relationship with it? What do you think is it good for? What are you trying to avoid there?
I’m definitely trying to avoid taking up too much space in my life because I think that can be pretty unhealthy. And of course my generation has a very special relationship with social media. I find it overwhelming at times, so I don’t post all the time. The fact that anyone can say what they want has two sides.
I think social media has played an amazing role in so much activism, especially this year and in recent years. On this site, social media has been an amazing tool. I think it has really become part of the voice of our generation when it comes to talking about things that matter. And it was amazing to see how many people were talking about getting out there and voting before the elections. But then, on the other hand, I think there are obvious advantages and disadvantages to everything. I’m just trying to make it take its appropriate place in my life.
You’ve worked with Chanel since you were young. How do you see fashion and working with the house from then to now?
It’s something that brings me so much joy and honor every time I speak about it. It’s so special to me. Chanel has been a part of my life since I was little because my mom had a long relationship with them – I have so many memories of stealing my mom’s Chanel things from her closet as a baby – and my mom and mine Grandmother always wore Chanel perfume. It’s really about the people I can work with because they’re not only so amazing and artistic, but above all just the most amazing thing there is – about working with Karl [Lagerfeld]we love and miss Virginie so much [Viard]who is so amazing.
What’s at the top of your reading and watch lists, especially with Paris locked again?
I read a short story book by Haruki Murakami, who is one of my favorite authors Men without women. And I just saw this amazing French movie called Water lilies by Celine Sciamma, who is also thePortrait of a Burning Lady. And I tried to get into podcasts again. There’s one really good thing called stuff they don’t want to know. [Podcasts] are good for walks. I’m in nature right now, so I’ve taken lots of nature walks. And I like a podcast nature walk combo.
