As always, Chanel had some very important people attending the presentation of the Chanel Haute Couture Fall-Winter 2012/13 collection. I noticed that Sofia Coppola was in attendance which I haven’t seen before. She designed a capsule collection for Louis Vuitton and directed fragrance films for Dior – I’m wondering if Karl Lagerfeld has any plans on working with her for an upcoming fragrance campaign?

Chanel Fall-Winter 2012/13 Haute Couture Look Book

Chanel Fall-Winter 2012/13 Haute Couture Look Book
Chanel’s fall-winter 2012/13 haute couture look book features model-turned-musician-turned-model Jamie Bochert. The look book was shot by Karl Lagerfeld as is customary. For fall-winter 2012/13 the photos are in black and white and in some ways, I feel the lack of color actually makes the details stand out more. Rather than being distracted by color, you are able to focus on what is important. Jamie Bochert’s statuesque silhouette is the perfect canvas for the Chanel Fall-Winter 2012/13 haute couture collection. See the rest of the images below…

Chanel Haute Couture Fall-Winter 2012/13 Runway Collection Review

Chanel Haute Couture Fall Winter 2012 2013

Last week Chanel presented its Haute Couture Fall-Winter 2012/13 collection entitled “New Vintage.” The “New Vintage” invitation featured an illustration by Karl Lagerfeld of a young Coco Chanel. Based on the invitation I thought I would see references from the early designs of Coco Chanel. Instead, Karl gave us a collection of instant classics that took us through the decades.

The most obvious reference was the 1940s with all of the models sporting snoods in their hair. It was actually an interesting presentation because Coco Chanel actually didn’t design during the 1940s – she closed her atelier in 1939 at the beginning of WWII. In many ways, this collection was Karl Lagerfeld’s interpretation of what her designs may have looked like had she designed during that time.

Though the 1940s references were very prevalent in the shapes such as trousers and the Old Hollywood glamorous dresses, I also saw hints of the 1960s and 1970s. The boxy swing dresses and coats reminded me of the 1960s and the blouses, tunics and long skirts reminded me of the 1970s.

The collection was muted in black, ivory and grey with pops of mauve and pink to lighten things up. I liked the unexpected hit of pastel for fall/winter. The gowns were lovely with intricate floral details and I would love to see some of these dresses on a red carpet. Please view the collection for yourself below – more to come on accessories and beauty!

Seeing Double – Blake Lively’s Gucci Ads Look Similar to Chanel

blake lively gucci premiere
Last year Blake Lively was the face of the Chanel Mademoiselle bag campaign and this year she’s the face of Gucci Premiere fragrance. The ad campaign of the Gucci Premiere have surfaced online and it shows a reflection of Blake Lively looking back at us. The photo is very beautiful but it’s a bit similar to the Chanel Mademoiselle campaign which was shot entirely on Coco Chanel’s infamous mirrored staircase at 31 Rue Cambon – with many photos featuring a reflection of Black Lively. Do you think these photos are too similar??

Chanel’s Peter Philips Presents: Mirror, Mirror

chanel miroir miroir peter philips rouge allure lipstick
Peter Philips has been creating some interesting short films like “Here Comes the Beauty Pack”, “Shade Parade“, “A Polished Look” and “Mani-Morphosis” that showcase the beauty products he creates for Chanel in unique ways.  His latest film Miroir, Miroir (Mirror, Mirror) highlights the new collection of Chanel Rouge Allure lipstick out in September 2012; the collection features sixteen new colors ranging from shades of orange, red and fuchsia.

Taking inspiration from a mirror-embellished coat Karl Lagerfeld designed for the Métiers d’Art Paris-Bombay pre-fall collection, Peter Philips painstakingly glued pieces of mirror on model Inguna Butane’s face for over three-hours. Peter Philips stated: “I’m a huge fan of visual communication…a sparkle is more than just one frozen moment. It’s a chain of images, because it moves, like a firework. And that’s something that you can only see in film or in real life.”
