Flash Back Friday: Chanel Fashion Show Video Medley

I watch this video every so often – I love that it’s a medley of different Chanel fashion shows ranging from the 1930s to 1983. One of my favorite things about this video is seeing Coco Chanel in action. I hope you enjoy this as much as I do.

Flash Back Friday: Inès de la Fressange for Chanel

Ines de La Fressange Chanel

Inès de la Fressange was Karl Lagerfeld’s muse in the 1980s. What a great time to be his muse! She was the first model to sign an exclusive contract with an haute couture fashion house – in this case Chanel. The relationship between Karl Lagerfeld and Inès de la Fressange produced a large body of work as she was the face of the company for most of the 80 when Chanel re-emerged in 1983 until 1989. Their relationship simmered down when she decided to lend her likeness to create a bust of Marianne, the symbol of the French Republic. Karl Lagerfeld and Inès de la Fressange reunited in the past several years and we even saw Inès de la Fressange walk the runway for the Chanel Spring/Summer 2011 show.

I’ve compiled some of my favorite videos, photos and ad campaigns featuring the lovely Inès de la Fressange. Enjoy!

French Coco by Chanel Ad

I can’t get enough of these ads – I don’t know the exact year but the print ads are from 1986 to 1988 so I believe the videos are from the same time. I hate to say this but I find the video below, a commercial for the U.S. market to be a bit silly. I much prefer the French ad, it’s much more chic and truer to the brand.

US Coco by Chanel Ad

Someone, please tell me what they are saying… and how amazing is that fashion show in the background?!

The exhibit opens tomorrow! Are you going??

I am so sad to say that I will not be going – BIG SAD FACE. I was just in NY a few weeks ago and buying tickets on short notice unfortunately, was cost prohibitive. But there is some good news. I’m taking the money I would have spent on a ticket and spending it on the website. There will be some cool new changes coming soon so stay tuned and I hope it will be worth it to you!
