Chanel always seems to launch a bunch of things at once. Just off the heels of the Chanel Spring-Summer 2013 Ready-to-Wear collection, Chanel is launching Inside Chanel, a website which gives the inside story of Coco Chanel and the Chanel brand. Right now, the site includes a timeline that documents Coco Chanel from her birth to her death – with all of her milestones in between. The timeline covers the rest of the brands history covering the launch of new product lines, fragrances and notable hires like Jacques Polge and Karl Lagerfeld. Chapter One focuses on the story of Chanel No.5 and has vintage photos of old Chanel ads along with a video. See the website for yourself at Inside-Chanel.com.

CHANEL Haute Couture Film by Trevor Undi

Trevor Undi has made a film of the Chanel Haute Couture Autumn-Winter 2012/13 collection set to the tune of Garment (For a Garment) by Alva Noto. I love the lighting and how the models have a halo of light around them. The varying speeds from slow motion to fast give us a a sense of movement and by seeing the models walk in slow motion you really get to see the details of the garments and how they move with the body. I really enjoyed this video and I hope you do too…

Chanel “Obsession” by Cyrille de Vignemont

Still from Chanel "Obsession" by Cyrille de Vignemont

Cyrille de Vignemont created a video for Chanel featuring British model and Karl Lagerfeld muse Edie Campbell. The video plays on the duality that is Chanel – black/white, masculine/feminine – using paneled mirrors reminscent of the ones at 31 Rue Cambon. On his website de Vignemont stated “Conceived as a mirror piece, the film illustrates Coco Chanel’s famous sentence ‘Luxury is something beautiful inside and out’ and plays on the star model’s identities: girl or boy, eternal or modern, but always marked by CHANEL Obsession.”

The styling in this video is impeccable and the song is gets under your skin and stays there – in a good way.
Cyrille de Vignemont stated that Obsession is also available as an interactive iPad app but I haven’t been able to find anything on the App store yet. I’ll keep you posted! For now, enjoy the video and join me in obsessing over all the gorgeous Chanel…

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.”

Cara Delevingne posed for Karl Lagerfeld for the Chanel Cruise 2012/13 press kit. I love this collection – everything about it is sweet and lovely. I love how full of color these photos are and I especially like how the gradient pastel backdrop enhances the pastels in the hair, makeup and clothing.

Chanel Cruise 2012/13 Details of the Collection Video

The Chanel Cruise 2012/13 collection was so breath-taking from afar so words can not describe what I felt when I watched the following video showcasing the details of the Chanel Cruise 2012/13 collection. The intricacy of the beading, fabrics, enamels is amazing. So much attention is paid to every little detail – you can see why wearing Chanel is the ultimate luxury. I also think the soundtrack is a lovely accompaniment to the look of the collection. View the video below – and keep a tissue handy in case your mouth starts watering like mine did!

Soundtrack:
The Postmarks “Thorn In Your Side”
