Chanel Takes Shelter Island with Billie Eilish

Chanel takes Shelter Island with the J12 Yacht Club to celebrate the rebirth of their iconic watch.

Saturday may have been the hottest day of the year so far, but Chanel refused to let a little heatwave get in the way of celebration. The brand took to the Shelter Island Sound to celebrate the rebirth of the J12 watch with the J12 Yacht Club. After an activity-filled day, they hosted a dinner at the Sunset Beach Hotel when the scorching weather subsided by the ocean but the heat returned when the hot list of A-list celebrities, actors, artists, musicians, and influencers arrived by boat at the event, ending the day by a special performance by Billie Eilish.

VIP attendees were immersed in Chanel’s interpretation of seaside living while enjoying the shade under branded umbrellas, chilled summer water in custom coolers, and Chanel surfboards, badminton and ping pong. The J12 Yacht Club was inspired by the J-Class racing yachts which served as the original muse of the Chanel J12 watch.  The guests were invited to explore the J12 watch collection at the Sunset Beach Boutique during their activity-filled day. 

As the weather cooled down, guests enjoyed a dinner as they watched the sailboat silhouettes pass in the sunset. To cap off the night, guests—including Phoebe Tonkin, Soo Joo Park, Maude Apatow, Camila Morrone, Pom Klementieff, Poppy Delevingne, Gucci Westman, and Rachel Zoe (just to name a few)—enjoyed an exclusive performance by Billie Eilish, bringing an end to the day.

The J12 Yacht Club at Sunset Beach will be open to the public through today, so go check it out. In the meantime, take a look at some of the moments captured at the event below.
