Chanel J12 Chromatic Titanium Ceramic Watch

Chanel J12 Chromatic Titanium Ceramic Watch

A few weeks ago we gave you a sneak peek of the soon-to-release Chanel J12 Chromatic watch.  What makes this watch different from the existing J12 models is the unique compound from which it is made.  This is no regular ceramic – it is ceramic mixed with diamond powder and titanium to give the watch the look of metal, with the durability of ceramic.  As Charlie Sheen would say…”Uh, winning!”  The Chanel J12 Chromatic Titanium Ceramic watch is gorgeous – and the addition of diamonds doesn’t hurt!  I would love this watch but something tells me it’s going to be pretty spendy.  The watch releases on June 1, 2011.

12 Days of Chanel: Chanel Watches

What time is it? It’s time to get Chanel!!  Chanel watches are some of the most gorgeous watches I have seen.  From the feminine Camelia watches, to the Art Deco 1932 series, from the delicate Première to the oft-imitated ceramic J12, Chanel watches are some of the most, uniquely beautiful watches around.  These lovely timepieces don’t come cheap and are expensive as they are gorgeous.  I don’t foresee myself getting one of these – ever – but they will forever be on my wish list!

12 Days of Chanel: Brooches

Nothing says ladylike elegance like a brooch. Added almost anywhere, a brooch can jazz up an ensemble and give you a polished look. Most often found on lapels, you can add a brooch to sweater sets, blazers, or outerwear. You can even fashion a hairpiece, or update a belt or fasten a scarf with a brooch. Every season Chanel releases at least one Camelia brooch and one double-C brooch. A Chanel brooch is a lovely way to add a bit of luxury to your looks without breaking the bank.

Chanel Spring-Summer 2011 Ready-to-Wear

Feminine. Gorgeous. Frayed. The Chanel Spring-Summer 2011 Ready-to-Wear collection is an exercise of beautiful decay. Fabrics were frayed and had a look of wear and tear that added an edge to the otherwise frilly pieces. A color palette of the iconic Chanel black and white with splashes of pastels adorned an otherwise black-scale French garden set at the Grand Palais in Paris.  An eighty-piece orchestra accompanied the models as they sashayed to the music of Björk, the Verve, and John “007″ Barry.

Apparel
The traditional Chanel suit was updated with a few twists: 3/4 sleeve and short sleeve swing coats, large lapels and short shorts instead of skirts. The shorts were very tiny and I wonder if real women can pull them off. To me, they seem like they would only look good on supermodels who are super skinny and have legs that go on for days. Many of the looks were embellished with flowers, feathers and/or lace making the looks ultra-feminine and etheral. One of the most exciting parts of the apparel collection was Chanel for bébé – a little boy walking hand-in-hand with a male model donning a Chanel jacket. No official word, but maybe this is a hint at a children’s collection to come.

Accessories
As is always the case for me, the accessories stole the show. My mouth literally watered as I went through the detail shots of the shoe. Uncle Karl never forgets about the dainty digits and his gloves for this collection were awesome. From zippered to cut out, from floral to metal mesh – the gloves in this collection were stunning. The costume jewelry included usual suspects like pearl strands and cuffs but also included a lot of metal chain work with multiple strands. Clear chunky bangle bracelets with pastel colored stripes were fun way to add color to monochrome outfits.

The quilted bags were gorgeous and one of my absolute favorites was the oversize clutch with oversize quilting. Available in several colors, my desire for this bag is only second to my desire for a classic 2.55. The very best accessory totally stole the show – and it was the most unique one of its kind that I have ever seen. A model walked the runway with an oversize umbrella that was shaped like a hat – so simple, yet so GENIUS! This umbrella is easily the best umbrella ever created.  I don’t have much to say about the shoes (gasp!) because I didn’t like them :(

Beauty
Peter Philips always does a wonderful job of translating Karl Lagerfeld’s sketches into actual looks. A neutral face was highlighted by a very dark smokey eye, the color echoing the black-scale garden set. Hair was straight and pulled back with side or center parts with all parts having a black line drawn in giving us a new use for black pencil eyeliner. Nails were painted in what looked like a dark grey gunmetal color called Black Pearl. More details to come on the Beauté collection.
