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.

The Coveteur has made a name for itself visiting the apartments of the very fashionable and showcasing covet-able clothing and accessories in interesting settings. On a recent trip to Paris, The Coveteur visited the Holy Grail of fashion apartments – 31 Rue Cambon – Gabrielle “Coco” Chanel’s apartment. I‘ve seen (and posted) image of Mademoiselle’s apartment before but The Coveteur has a way of capturing the details and bringing them to the surface. Refinery 29 shared a few preview images…
Update 1.9.12 – the complete post is up and you can see all of the lovely images of Coco Chanel’s Apartment at 31 Rue Cambon on The Coveteur.

So many goodies in the mail lately! Last week I received a copy of Chanel’s Magazine 31 Rue Cambon. Like anything they produce, the Fall-Winter 2011 issue of 31 Rue Cambon is exquisitely crafted. The magazine gives an inside glimpse to the collections and has gorgeous close up photos of the Fall-Winter 2011 Haute Couture collection. The issue also includes sketches by Karl Lagerfeld and articles on the new J12 Titanium watch, shoe atelier Massaro, Fall-Winter 2011 Ready-toWear collection, the Mademoiselle bag, Les Exclusifs de Chanel and other cosmetics, among other highlights from the season. I love flipping through the pages and seeing all of the Chanel eye candy page after page. I’m definitely adding 31 Rue Cambon to my Chanel library.
