Chanel ULTRA Fine Jewelry Collection – A Story of Contrasts Video

Here’s another video featuring the Chanel Ultra Fine Jewelry collection. These rings are striking and I love the way the look stacked together on one finger. I also love the idea of one of these rings as a wedding band. Here’s what Chanel has to say about the collection:

A harmonious balance of beauty and strength, the ULTRA Collection stands out with unparalleled graphic style. Contemporary, high-tech ceramic creates fluid lines, while the bold black and white palette is emblematic of the House of Chanel.

Flash Back Friday: Chanel Fashion Show Video Medley

I watch this video every so often – I love that it’s a medley of different Chanel fashion shows ranging from the 1930s to 1983. One of my favorite things about this video is seeing Coco Chanel in action. I hope you enjoy this as much as I do.

Word on the Street: News from the MISS Network 06.15.12

MISS NEWS

I’m not sure if you know, but La Chanelphile is part of the MISS Omni Media family. I co-founded MISS in 2006 and I later went on to start La Chanelphile and Lil’ Miss. La Chanelphile actually started out as a column on MISS called “Cuckoo for Coco”. When I realized how much I enjoyed writing about Chanel I thought I would start a separate blog devoted just to Chanel. In an effort to keep you updated as to what’s going on in the MISS Omni Media family, at the end of each week I’ll be posting some highlights from MISS and Lil’ Miss.

First Look: Chanel Bleu Illusion Makeup Collection

chanel bleu illusion

Back in January we got a sneak peak of Chanel’s Bleu Illusion makeup collection that debuted on the Chanel Haute Couture Spring-Summer 2012 runway. Peter Philips created a collection awash in blues and the new limited edition products are: Illusion D’Ombre Shadow in Apparition (gray-ish blue), Illusion D’Ombre Shadow in Destination (silvery satin blue), Le Crayon Yeux Eyeliner in Blue Aerien (intense luminous blue), and Le Vernis Nail Polish in Sky Line. Describing Chanel Le Vernis Sky Line, Peter Philips stated: “It’s a beautiful, easy to apply, pearly- on the edge of metallic- shade that matched perfectly with the range of blues that Karl used for this haute couture collection.”

From the images the Bleu Illusion collection is very pretty but there’s a part of me that’s having horrible flashbacks of the 1980s and blue eyeshadow. I think in moderation this look can be really pretty and complements different eye colors. The Exclusive Collection BLEU ILLUSION will be available at specific points of sales in July 2012.

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 Paris-Bombay 2011/12 Métiers d’Art Accessories

Chanel Paris Bombay 2011 2012 Accessories

The Chanel Paris-Bombay 2011/12 Métiers d’Art collection hit stores last week and I can not wait to see these beauties in person! This is one of my favorite collections to date – the fusion of Chanel signatures with traditional Indian jewelry is gorgeous and makes for dramatic, statement pieces that would shine in your accessories collection. Since these pieces are new they won’t be included in the Chanel sale on the 14th but that doesn’t mean I won’t take a good look at them while I’m there!
