Kristen Stewart stars in the first instalment of Chanel's Gabrielle bag short films, in which she demonstrates the full spectrum of angst under the direction of Australian filmmaker Daniel Askill. She prances around – almost dances – in an empty warehouse, and laughs to herself, as if taken over by Gabrielle's own spirit.

The spotlight is also on Chanel's Gabrielle bag; Kristen wears the hobo style in the video, but it's also available as a backpack and drawstring bag.

"What we landed on was ultimately the search for Gabrielle's spirit, and the sort of fight that you can have with the idea of someone disappearing," Kristen explained in a statement about how the video's premise came to be.

"There's something eerie about the film but it's ultimately exuberant," she added. "It leads me to her name, Gabrielle, scrawled on a window, it's like affirmation, I've been validated. It almost represents the first glimpse Gabrielle allows me to have of her, and I get happy."

The three remaining short films starring Chanel muses Cara Delevingne, Caroline de Maigret and Pharrell Williams will be released soon.
