Since 1923, Coco Chanel made the camellia an element of her signature style and it has long since become a signature for the brand. Chanel Fine Jewelry always has a dedicated collection centering around the house’s signature icon and the newest collection, Jardin de Camélias, is a stunning array of brooches, rings, necklaces and bracelets made in the most precious of gemstones. The different interpretations of the camellia are more beautiful than the next – it’s hard for me to pick a favorite – I would be happy with any one of them! Aren’t they gorgeous?

MISS is back again with more CHANAILS for their MISS Nails Did 2012 calendar. Nothing says spring like flowers and if you’re going floral – whether on your jeans, kicks or nails – they might as well be Chanel-inspired. Since color is huge for spring, and in particular for 2012, we opted for bright vintage Chanel gift wrap for our background and authentic Chanel camellia brooches to accompany our CHANAILS. I hope you’re having a great spring and let’s get ready for summer!

One of my favorite scents from Les Exclusifs de Chanel is Gardénia. I’ve been waiting for the right moment to get it and I think that the light, fresh scent is perfect for spring and summer. I tend to stay away from heavier scents once the weather gets warmer and Gardénia’s light floral scent is lovely in the hotter months. Created by Master Perfumer Ernest Beaux in 1925 (also the creator of Chanel N°5), Chanel Gardénia is an ode to the camellia, Mademoiselle Chanel’s favorite flower. Gardénia is definitely on my shopping list this spring.

I love Chanel Fine Jewelry – especially the pieces inspired by Coco Chanel’s favorite flower, the camellia. Chanel has dreamt up a sparkling, ethereal floral design that is a delicate embroidery of diamonds with gold that dresses the skin in a precious lace. Check out the video for the Chanel Fine Jewelry Camélia Brodé collection below…

In 2 short days Chanel will unveil its Spring 2011 Ready-to-Wear collection and I can’t wait to see it! Chanel unveiled an image of their show invitation (pictured above) and from the looks of it, maybe Chanel’s iconic Camellia is the inspiration for the collection. Since it’s a spring collection, floral is always “on trend” so it’s a possibility. From the looks of the invite, it seems that Uncle Karl is still liking the raw street art feel that imbued his Chanel Soho Boutique reopening. All I can do is speculate – we’ll see in 2 days!
