Flash Back Friday: Inès de la Fressange for Chanel

Ines de La Fressange Chanel

Inès de la Fressange was Karl Lagerfeld’s muse in the 1980s. What a great time to be his muse! She was the first model to sign an exclusive contract with an haute couture fashion house – in this case Chanel. The relationship between Karl Lagerfeld and Inès de la Fressange produced a large body of work as she was the face of the company for most of the 80 when Chanel re-emerged in 1983 until 1989. Their relationship simmered down when she decided to lend her likeness to create a bust of Marianne, the symbol of the French Republic. Karl Lagerfeld and Inès de la Fressange reunited in the past several years and we even saw Inès de la Fressange walk the runway for the Chanel Spring/Summer 2011 show.

I’ve compiled some of my favorite videos, photos and ad campaigns featuring the lovely Inès de la Fressange. Enjoy!

French Coco by Chanel Ad

I can’t get enough of these ads – I don’t know the exact year but the print ads are from 1986 to 1988 so I believe the videos are from the same time. I hate to say this but I find the video below, a commercial for the U.S. market to be a bit silly. I much prefer the French ad, it’s much more chic and truer to the brand.

US Coco by Chanel Ad

Someone, please tell me what they are saying… and how amazing is that fashion show in the background?!

New Lisa Eldridge Chanel Makeup Tutorials

Chanel recently posted three new makeup tutorials by Lisa Eldridge where she shows us how to apply Chanel Rouge Coco and Chanel Rouge Coco Shine. I love watching Lisa Eldridge’s tutorials because she explains things clearly and makes everything look so easy.

The New York Times’ T Magazine seems to have taken a liking to Chanel’s Le Vernis. Two weeks ago T Magazine gave us “A Polished Look by Chanel” and now they’ve introduced “Mani-Morphosis.” Not quite a video, but more of an interactive slide, you see a model’s nails transform from buffed to polished in Chanel’s most popular shades as you listen to an original piece by Amelie Bruun. The colors from left to right are: Blue Satin, Vamp, Paradoxal, Peridot, Quartz, Pirate, April, June, Rose Confidentiel and May. See the Mani-Morphosis for yourself on the T Magazine blog.

View Chanel’s “The Little Black Jacket” Exhibit Online!

chanel the little black jacket exhibit online
For those of us who were not fancy enough to be invited to the opening of Chanel’s “The Little Black Jacket” exhibit or don’t live in Japan (or won’t be visiting any time soon), we can still see the stunning work of Karl Lagerfeld and Carine Roitfeld. All of the photos from The Little Black Jacket: CHANEL’s classic revisited by Karl Lagerfeld and Carine Roitfeld are on view on a new Chanel microsite devoted to the exhibit. The site is a bit interactive as hints of photos rotate you click on one to see the full photo.  It will take some time to see all of the photos – I kind of wish there was a way to just scroll through them all but that’s just the rushed person in me who has no time for everything.  By displaying the photos the way they did, I think Chanel intends for you  to peruse and discover as you would in a real gallery.  Enjoy!

Chanel: The Little Black Jacket Photo Shoot with Karl Lagerfeld and Carine Roitfeld

“The CHANEL jacket symbolises a timelessly fashionable form of nonchalant feminine elegance: it belongs to every era” – Karl Lagerfeld.

Chanel sent a video of a behind-the scenes look at the making of the The Little Black Jacket: CHANEL’s classic jacket revisited by Karl Lagerfeld and Carine Roitfeld. Watching this video is like watching the dream team of fashion at work with Peter Philips doing makeup, Carine Roitfeld styling and Karl Lagerfeld photographing. I’ve always wanted a Chanel Little Black Jacket and now I want one even more!

The images for this latest project were shot in Cannes, in the South of France, and then in New York, before finishing up in Paris in Karl Lagerfeld’s studio. Over a hundred models and celebrities have been captured by the designer’s lens. Actors, artists, singers, rock stars – the book’s impressive line-up encompasses all aspects of contemporary culture today including Georgia May Jagger, Carine Roitfeld, Sarah Jessica Parker, Virginie Ledoyen, Akuol de Mabior, Virginie Viard – and they all wear CHANEL’s uniquely timeless and versatile little black jacket in their own special way.

The Little Black Jacket: CHANEL’s classic revisited by Karl Lagerfeld and Carine Roitfeld, will be available in bookstores beginning Autumn 2012.
