Chanel Métiers D’Art Pre-Fall 2012 Paris-Bombay Handbags

Chanel Metiers DArt Pre Fall 2012 Paris Bombay Handbags
Earlier this year we saw the Chanel Métiers D’Art Pre-Fall 2012 Paris-Bombay collection and we recently found some close-up images of the handbags. The detail on these bags is elaborate, elegant and truly captures the artistry of traditional Indian works. The print on the bronze clutch is reminiscent of Mehendi and the silver coin straps, floral details and silver beading recalls details of traditional Indian accessories. See the beauty below…

Fashion In The Street: Chanel Sightings in Las Vegas

Last week I was in Las Vegas attending PROJECT trade show and was able to photograph some ladies wearing Chanel.  Being Las Vegas there were definitely many ladies wearing Chanel but the camera wasn’t out and ready at the moment so there were many missed opportunities.  Here are some goodies for you….

Denise Fleming from Look Los Angeles wore a great bag and sandals…

Behind the Scenes Photos of the New Boy Bag Ad Campaign

The new Chanel Boy Bag ad campaign featuring Alice Dellal and shot by Karl Lagerfeld should be surfacing soon but until then we can get a sneak peek by checking out the behind-the-scenes images of the photo shoot.  You can see from the photos that the Chanel team did a great job of balancing Alice Dellal’s edgy look and giving it a feminine Chanel sheen.  It’s the best I’ve ever seen her look.  What do you think?

For more on what the ads will look like, also check out the mini film My New Friend Boy.

Chanel Valentine’s Day 2012 Accessories Collection

chanel valentines day 2012 accessories

Valentine’s Day is coming and there’s no better way to say “I love you” than with the gift of Chanel (chocolate comes close though)! Chanel is releasing its 2012 Valentine’s Day collection featuring purses, small leather goods and accessories. The collection is awash in the palest pink and soft shimmery gold giving it a hint of the blush of first love. It’s hard to choose a favorite as I love them all (and would be happy receiving any as a gift dear husband) but I’m especially loving the exotics skins, the quilted bag shaped like a brown paper lunch bag, the camellia and camellia-embosses leather items, the wrist cuff, brooch, earrings, and bracelets.  This collection is so lovely and would be a great transition into spring.  And don’t forget, you don’t need a Valentine to treat yourself on Valentine’s Day.

High Rolling! CHANEL Exclusive Edition for Las Vegas Handbags

CHANEL exclusive Edition for Las Vegas

Last week I posted about the exclusive “Las Vegas de Chanel” cosmetics collection launching to commemorate the redesign of the Chanel boutique at the Bellagio in Las Vegas.  In addition to beauty products, Chanel is releasing the Exclusive Edition for Las Vegas Handbags – a collection of 5 (Chanel’s lucky number – this is Las Vegas after all!) handbags.  All five of the bags have an element of sparkle since you can never overdo anything in Las Vegas.  My favorite of the five is the gold bag – the dice charms are too cute!  That bag was made for high rolling!

I’m not sure if the bags will be rolling out to other locations or if they are exclusive to the Bellagio or to all the Las Vegas shops.  A little birdie did tell me that the Las Vegas de Chanel cosmetics will be available at the Bellagio exclusively for one month and then trickle out to other locations.  Good news for all the readers who were asking about availability!  If you are at the Bellagio, be sure to ask for Giselle and she’ll make you look beautiful!

Alice Dellal Is The New Face of the Chanel Boy Bag Collection

alice delal chanel boy bag collection making of the campaignRumors have been swirling online for a week or so and now Chanel has confirmed that Karl Lagerfeld has chosen Alice Dellal to be the face of the Boy Chanel handbag collection.  The designer had a crush on this unique, charismatic young lady, who is both a model and musician, during a photo shoot several months ago. Though at first I thought the collaboration curious, I think it makes sense.  Alice Dellal represents the perfect incarnation of all that is unique about the Boy Chanel handbag collection which strives far from conformist notions of femininity.

Ultra-modern, refined and mysterious, Alice Della is the latest in the line of  CHANEL muses, each boasting their own inimitable allure – that je ne sais quoi that Mademoiselle herself perfected.

The advertising campaign shot by Karl Lagerfeld will be revealed in March 2012.  I can’t wait to see this.  From what I can see from the preview I already love what Alice Dellal is wearing and she looks more feminine than she normally does.

Sneak Peek: Chanel Spring Summer 2012

Chanel Spring Summer 2012 neon sneaker

What happens when you combine neon with Chanel?  You get the Spring Summer 2012 collection.  These pieces were not on the runway but a Spanish blogger was invited to a press preview in Madrid and posted some great pics of pieces from the 2102 Chanel spring summer collection.

I love the sneakers – especially the high tops – and did you see the tennis balls?  So cute, but too cute to actually play with.  We also get glimpses of new bags, shoes and neon jackets.  It all looks very summery and fun – can’t wait to see it in stores!
