Chanel Ephemeral Boutique Capri, Italy Summer 2012

On the heels of opening a pop-up shop at the Hotel La Mistralée in Saint-Tropez, last week Chanel opened an ephemeral boutique on the Italian island of Capri, a historically elite holiday retreat. In the same way that Coco Chanel chose exclusive vacation resorts as the locations of her boutiques, Chanel is focusing on the travel destinations of those who appreciate luxury and have money to burn.

“In the shade of the towering palm trees, guests will savour the exquisite scent of orange and lemon trees while cascades of jasmine perfume the air” as they peruse the Paris-Bombay 2012 Métiers d’Art pre-fall collection. The Chanel ephemeral boutique in Capri has a bohemian feel and is decorated with vintage trunks that perfectly accompany the Paris-Bombay collection.

Ephemeral Boutique
From June 4th to September 30th 2012
10am – 10pm
Via Camerelle, 14/b
Capri

Chanel Ephemeral Boutique in St. Tropez Summer 2012

Summer Chanel Ephemeral Boutique in St. Tropez
The Hotel La Mistralée in Saint-Tropez is home to a new Chanel Ephemeral boutique that will showcase the Chanel Paris-Bombay and the spring-summer 2012 collections. The XIX century architecture of the Hotel La Mistralée is juxtaposed with geometric patterns and bright colors reminiscent of the 1980s.

To commemorate the opening of the he Chanel Ephemeral boutique at the Hotel La Mistralée in Saint-Tropez Chanel created a limited edition beach tote bag complete with woven straw mat and towel. It’s been pretty much impossible to find a photo of this mysterious tote online but I’m trying to get one! I’ll update you if I find one. The boutique will be open until October 2012.

April 28th to October 7th 2012
10am-1.30pm / 3.30pm-8pm (4.30pm-9pm in July and August)
1, avenue du Général Leclerc
83990 Saint-Tropez

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”

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?!
