Chanel Jardin de Camélias Collection

chanel Jardin de Camélias collection

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?

Archival Video Footage of Coco Chanel’s 1932 Diamond Exhibit

Discovered by the CHANEL Direction du Patrimoine in the Pathé-Gaumont cinematographic archives, this film presents the “Bijoux de Diamants” exhibit held from November 7th-19th, 1932 at Gabrielle Chanel’s apartment 29 Faubourg Saint Honoré in Paris. Broadcasted before the feature movies in every French cinema, it was a prominent event in French news in November 1932.

I love seeing the archival footage of the original exhibit in Coco Chanel’s own home!

Chanel Fine Jewelry 1932 “Bijoux de Diamants” Anniversary Collection

Chanel 1932 Bijoux de Diamants Anniversary Collection

Earlier this week Chanel hosted a dinner to open the NYC exhibit of the 80th Anniversary of the Chanel 1932 Bijoux de Diamants. I’ve been searching online to see as many pieces as possible and though I haven’t found all eighty, I have found some dazzling pieces that are exquisite. Taking inspiration from the things that inspired Coco Chanel, the collection features the sun, comets, feathers, fringes and ribbons/knots. The jewelry is mesmerizing and I’ve been looking at it all day and can look at it for days to come. I also came across some great videos including one featuring actual footage of the 1932 collection. The voice over is in French but there are some great shots in there. Enjoy!

Chanel “Bijoux de Diamants” 80th Anniversary NYC Dinner

CHANEL FINE JEWELRY celebrates its 80th anniversary of the “Bijoux de Diamants” collection created by Gabrielle Chanel

Nora Zehetner

Last night Chanel celebrated the 80th Anniversary of the “ Bijoux de Diamants” collection, originally created by Gabrielle Chanel in 1932 with the presentation of 80 new High-Jewelry pieces at a dinner reception in NYC. The guests included Michael Avedon, Jen Brill, Rose Byrne, Alexa Chung, Prince Pierre d’Arenberg, Linda Evangelista, Blake Lively, Anh Duong, Elle Fanning, Frederic Fekkai, Diane Kruger, Leigh Lezark, Nemo Librizzi, Caroline Sieber, Mario Sorrenti & Mary Frey and Lindsey Wixson.

Entitled “1932”, this exceptional collection clearly displays the full scope of the creativity and know-how of High Jewelry at CHANEL. These 80 pieces draw their inspiration from motifs and symbols that colored Mademoiselle Chanel’s imagination. Their magical constellations of white, yellow and black diamonds, blue and pink sapphires and pearls project us into the very heart of a cosmic fantasy within a dream-like and timeless universe.

Comets, stars, suns, fringes, fountains, ribbons and feathers all form the stylistic vocabulary of CHANEL FINE JEWELRY. Today, there’s a new addition, the lion – that great protector – Mademoiselle Chanel’s favorite animal and her star sign Leo – she was born on August 19th.

Inspired and visionary, in the same manner as the original “Bijoux de Diamants” collection created 80 years ago, these new jewelry pieces strongly express the unique creative spirit that characterizes High Jewelry at CHANEL. The excellence and mastery of technique that each piece demands, enables CHANEL FINE JEWELRY to advance and push forward its taste for perfection and ultimate luxury.

Chanel J12 White Video

chanel j12 white
Who says you can’t wear white after Labor Day? That’s an old rule that doesn’t have any place in our society these days. There’s nothing more lovely than winter whites and nothing exemplifies this better than the lovely Chanel J12 in white.

As one of the 21st century’s iconic timepieces, the J12 watch has transformed ceramic into a precious material. Created in 2003, the J12 White has become a new standard, revolutionizing the rules of watchmaking. The unique sparkle of the pristine pure white ceramic lends a remarkable magic to the J12 watch.

Seeing this video is making me question my choice of getting the J12 Chromatic! Learn more on the ” title=”chanel j12 white website” target=”_blank”>Chanel J12 White website.

1932 – Chanel 80th Anniversary Bijoux de Diamants Exhibition

chanel 1932 jewlery collection
Back in February I mentioned that Chanel was celebrating the 80th anniversary of Coco Chanel’s only fine jewelry collection created in 1932 called the Bijoux de Diamants collection. To commemorate the anniversary, Chanel has designed a collection of fine jewelry inspired by Coco Chanel’s jewelry designs featuring five themes that were Coco’s signatures: the sun, comets, feathers, fringes and ribbons/knots. The designers added a sixth theme – the lion – because Coco Chanel was a Leo and surrounded herself with portrayals of lions. The collection is now on display in an exhibit called simply “1932″.

Only one piece remains from Coco Chanel’s original 1932 collection – a comet brooch – and the brooch is on display at the 1932 exhibit. The exhibit is on display at the Biennale des Antiquaires in Paris starting September 14 – 23, 2012. The exhibit will travel to New York in October and to Tokyo in November. I hope that I can make the New York exhibit! You can see a bit of the exhibit in the video below.
