Chanel Ready-to-Wear Autumn-Winter 2013/2014 Invitation

Chanel Ready to Wear Autumn-Winter 2013 2014 Invitation

Chanel has posted an image of the Chanel Ready-to-Wear Autumn-Winter 2013/2014 Invitation. As always this is exciting because it’s our first hint at what inspired the collection. The cover of the invitation is white with a gold image of the Earth on it. To my mind, it immediately brings thoughts of travel. Or, perhaps, Karl Lagerfeld will be inspired by many cultures due to the shrinking nature of the globe as technology makes sharing much easier. Who knows? We’ll find out tomorrow. Stay tuned!

The end of October was a bit busy for me because my daughter was celebrating Halloween for the first time with trick or treating and events at school and I took some time to spend with my family. But, Chanel news doesn’t stop coming. Here are some of my favorite Chanel-related items…

Karl Lagerfeld sketched a “no smoking” sign but it’s not your typical sign. However, he was not making a statement about unhealthy habits, instead he was noting all the YSL references on many runways and he was stating that you would find a “smoking” – the french term for tuxedo – on his runway. Lagerfeld stated: “We don’t have to do smoking. Hedi Slimane really does it well.” WWD

Chanel Spring-Summer 2013 Accessories Preview

Some bloggers (ahem, not me :( ) were invited to see a preview of the Chanel Spring-Summer 2013 accessories in the Chanel showroom. I’ve selected my favorite pictures from each blog but invite you to take a look at the blogs to see all the photos.

I have to say that this is one of my favorite accessories collections to date. I already know that I want to save up for a red Chanel Boy Brick Bag (aka the LEGO bag) and a pearl bracelet. And you know I adore the glasses with a silhouette of Mlle. Chanel herself perched on top but I want that more as a collector and not as someone that would actually wear them. Note to all family and friends – please no gifts this upcoming birthday and Christmas – instead please make donations to my Chanel Spring 2013 accessories fund! xo

Chanel’s Upcoming Show Locations: Deauville Resort 2013-14 and Scotland Pre-Fall 2013

In 1913, Chanel opened her boutique in the French resort town of Deauville. To commemorate the 100th anniversary, Chanel will host the upcoming Chanel Resort 2014 collection in Deauville. Karl Lagerfeld told WWD: “My idea is to hire a train, have dinner on the train, do the show in a ballroom and go back at night,” he said. (WWD) What a wonderful way to commemorate the anniversary!

Chanel has also announced that the next Métiers d’Art show will take place in December at a secret location in Edinburgh, Scotland. (Vogue UK) A few months ago I wrote about how Rosehall, an estate that Coco Chanel shared with the Duke of Westminster that was being converted into a hotel. When I first heard that the Métiers d’Art show was taking place in Scotland my first thought was that it would take place at Rosehall. Alas, the show is taking place in Edinburgh and I can only imagine that it’s because Rosehall is in the countryside in Northern Scotland. I would be surprised though if having the show in Scotland was not influenced at all by the time she spent there with the Duke of Westminster.

Chanel Spring-Summer 2013 Ready-to-Wear Accessories

Chanel Spring-Summer 2013 Ready-to-Wear Details

You’d think after almost thirty years at Chanel that we’ve seen all of Karl Lagerfeld’s tricks yet each season he amazes me. Like the apparel, Karl stepped away from signature Chanel pieces like cuffs and quilted 2.55 purses. Instead we saw enlarged pearls either along in a bracelet or in clusters around the wrists and necks of the models. Many of the purses were angular and some even looked like Lego’s (in shape and color). The spectacular piece that has the internet going nuts is the hula hoop beach bag – very practical in its impracticality. Karl explained in an interview that you can stand the bag in the sand and hang things over the top to dry. But while everyone has been eyeing that bag, I’ve been eyeing the sunglasses the model was wearing with that bag. On top of the left lense of the sunglasses is a mini Coco figure. How fun! I cannot wait to see these glasses in person they are amazing! See more details below…
