Chanel Spring/Summer 2014 Ready-to-Wear Show Decor

Chanel Spring/Summer 2014 Ready-to-Wear Show Decor

We knew the Chanel entitled its Spring/Summer 2014 collection “art” but taking one look at the decor, and it’s clear Karl took it to the next level. Set in an all-white gallery setting, the walls were covered with Chanel-inspired canvases and sculptures. When I first saw it, my jaw dropped and I thought, I want all of it — and that’s before I even saw the fashion!

Chanel Beaute: 2014 Spring/Summer Ready-to-Wear Makeup

chanel spring summer 2014 makeup

Just yesterday I posted about the holiday makeup collection and today I’m giving you a preview of what to expect next spring. Peter Philips didn’t hold anything back — models’ eyes were works of art themselves, looking like canvases and palettes all at once. Here are the products Peter Philips used to create the look for the Chanel Spring/Summer 2014 ready-to-wear show.

Video: Chanel Fall 2013 Film “Women Only” by Karl Lagerfeld

Karl Lagerfeld has once again made a fashion film — “Women Only” — to launch the most recent collection soon to hit boutiques, the Chanel Fall-Winter 2013/14 pre-collection. He cleverly uses his previous film “Once Upon a Time”, featuring Keira Knightley as Coco Chanel, as the backdrop for “Women Only”. Karl chose the obscurity of a Parisian cinema as the set and we see models stroll in – individually and in pairs – all wearing head to to Chanel.

I think “Women Only” is one of Karl’s best fashion films – it’s just another medium for us to see the gorgeous Chanel creations in a different light – rather than just staring at stills. “Women Only” does a beautiful job of highlighting the Chanel collection – I’m convinced, I want it all!

Title: “Brid”
Artist: HTB
Label: Pop Noire

Chanel Cruise 2013/2014 Collection

Yesterday Chanel presented is Cruise 2014 collection in Dempsey Hill, Singapore. The sweltering, year-round heat of the small island state makes it feel as if you are on permanent vacation, making it the perfect locale for a resort collection presentation.

The festivities began the night before, on Wednesday night when Chanel screened the premiere of “Once Upon a Time” in the courtyard of the historic Raffles Hotel. The next day, Chanelphiles were greeted with one of my favorite resort collections that I’ve seen.

My absolute favorite look was the first look – one that you saw Keira Knightley wearing as Coco Chanel in “Once Upon a Time” – because it’s essentially a replica of a look that Coco Chanel herself wore. The jersey ensemble was one of her first apparel creations and she was pictured wearing the same look in Deauville.

Chanel Cruise 2014 Collection

What I loved about this collection was the simplicity and how Karl Lagerfeld really stayed true to the codes that Coco Chanel established. The palette was all black, white, beige and navy/denim with no other color in sight (which I loved by the way!). The models were draped in pearls and most wore some variation of a shoe with a toe-cap. The long side-swept bangs and shock of bright blue eye-makeup gave the timeless looks a bit of edge.

Check out the full collection for yourself below – remember to click on the first image and a slideshow will open up that you can click through.
