Chanel Covent Garden Holiday 2012 Pop-Up Shop

The Chanel pop-up shop in Covent Garden is back in time for the holidays and has some great new special features just for this time of year. In the spirit of gift giving you can have purchases wrapped complete with a card “signed” by Mlle. Chanel. Also for the first time you can purchase a Chanel gift card. I saw images of a collection of mini Les Exclusifs bottles but I received confirmation from Chanel that the set is not for sale – so sad I’ve been wanting that so badly! If you went to the shop early then you may have been lucky enough to get a logo pin as well. If you’re in London definitely stop by the Chanel pop-up shop in Covent Garden.

Karl Lagerfeld Shot Victoria Beckham at 31 Rue Cambon

These pictures have been out for some time now but they are too lovely not to post. The images are of Victoria Beckham shot by Karl Lagerfeld for the November 2012 issue of Elle France. The photos were shot in Coco Chanel’s personal apartment and on the infamous mirrored staircase at 31 Rue Cambon. Many of the photos – the settings and poses – are re-enactments of photos of Coco Chanel herself. The photos are nice but Victoria Beckham is no Coco Chanel.

Chanel Métiers d’Art Collection 2012/13 Paris-Edimbourg at Linlithgow Palace

Linlithgow Palace

Last week I mentioned that the upcoming Chanel Métiers d’Art Collection 2012/13 collection was going to be shown in Edinburgh. Today, Chanel announced that the Chanel Métiers d’Art Collection 2012/13 collection will be shown at Linlithgow Palace, near Edinburgh at 6pm on 4th December.

Linlithgow Palace, originally the majestic royal palace of the Stuarts, dating back to 1424, and birthplace of Mary Queen of Scots, now a ruined castle, will provide a spectacular backdrop for the collection which will be presented within the walls of the palace.

Karl Lagerfeld chose Edinburgh because he was inspired by the rich heritage of CHANEL in Scotland, and the skilled craftsmanship of Scottish tweed and cashmere, that are an integral and iconic part of CHANEL’s collections today. Together with the recent acquisition of Scottish knitwear brand Barrie made Scotland the perfect location for a collection that celebrates craftsmanship.

The Métiers d’Art Collection is my favorite collection of the year so I’m looking forward to this show. We’ll be seeing lots of tweeds and knitwear I’m sure and I can’t wait to see what surprises Lagerfeld has up his sleeves!

Chanel Links!

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 Cruise 2012-13 Ad Campaign With Cara & Saskia

Images of the Chanel Cruise 2012/13 ad campaign have surfaced and they bring to life the 18th century style re-imagined by Karl Lagerfeld as we saw earlier this year from his presentation in the gardens of Versailles. The campaign was shot by Karl Lagerfeld and features Saskia de Brauw and Cara Delevingne and the gilded backdrop, apparel and accessories bring to mind the decadence of Marie Antoinette.

Chanel J12 Matte Black

Chanel recently released the J12 in Matte Black and I love it. It’s so elegant and I’m trying not to like it because I received a Chanel J12 Chromatic last year, but alas, the more I look at it, the more I love it.

Chanel Spring-Summer 2013 Accessories Preview

chanel spring 2013 accessories

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
