Chanel Fall-Winter 2012/13 Ready-to-Wear Collection Details

Chanel Fall Winter 2012 2013 Ready to Wear Collection Details

Last week Chanel presented its Fall-Winter 2012/13 Ready-to-Wear collection and accessory-wise this was not my favorite show – don’t hate me, I’m just being honest. I found that the cuffs with large crystals sometimes read a little bit New Age-hippy-dippy to me. That said, there were also spectacular pieces like the collars/chest plates, the sexy line of the shoes, the mesh gloves (and the length of the gloves!) and the handbags (not counting the crushed velvet ones). I’m sure as more detailed images are released I will find more to love. For now, we’ll have to content ourselves with these…

Fashion In The Street: Chanel Sightings in Las Vegas

Last week I was in Las Vegas attending PROJECT trade show and was able to photograph some ladies wearing Chanel.  Being Las Vegas there were definitely many ladies wearing Chanel but the camera wasn’t out and ready at the moment so there were many missed opportunities.  Here are some goodies for you….

Denise Fleming from Look Los Angeles wore a great bag and sandals…

Chanel Valentine’s Day 2012 Accessories Collection

chanel valentines day 2012 accessories

Valentine’s Day is coming and there’s no better way to say “I love you” than with the gift of Chanel (chocolate comes close though)! Chanel is releasing its 2012 Valentine’s Day collection featuring purses, small leather goods and accessories. The collection is awash in the palest pink and soft shimmery gold giving it a hint of the blush of first love. It’s hard to choose a favorite as I love them all (and would be happy receiving any as a gift dear husband) but I’m especially loving the exotics skins, the quilted bag shaped like a brown paper lunch bag, the camellia and camellia-embosses leather items, the wrist cuff, brooch, earrings, and bracelets.  This collection is so lovely and would be a great transition into spring.  And don’t forget, you don’t need a Valentine to treat yourself on Valentine’s Day.

High Rolling! CHANEL Exclusive Edition for Las Vegas Handbags

CHANEL exclusive Edition for Las Vegas

Last week I posted about the exclusive “Las Vegas de Chanel” cosmetics collection launching to commemorate the redesign of the Chanel boutique at the Bellagio in Las Vegas.  In addition to beauty products, Chanel is releasing the Exclusive Edition for Las Vegas Handbags – a collection of 5 (Chanel’s lucky number – this is Las Vegas after all!) handbags.  All five of the bags have an element of sparkle since you can never overdo anything in Las Vegas.  My favorite of the five is the gold bag – the dice charms are too cute!  That bag was made for high rolling!

I’m not sure if the bags will be rolling out to other locations or if they are exclusive to the Bellagio or to all the Las Vegas shops.  A little birdie did tell me that the Las Vegas de Chanel cosmetics will be available at the Bellagio exclusively for one month and then trickle out to other locations.  Good news for all the readers who were asking about availability!  If you are at the Bellagio, be sure to ask for Giselle and she’ll make you look beautiful!

Alice Dellal Is The New Face of the Chanel Boy Bag Collection

alice delal chanel boy bag collection making of the campaignRumors have been swirling online for a week or so and now Chanel has confirmed that Karl Lagerfeld has chosen Alice Dellal to be the face of the Boy Chanel handbag collection.  The designer had a crush on this unique, charismatic young lady, who is both a model and musician, during a photo shoot several months ago. Though at first I thought the collaboration curious, I think it makes sense.  Alice Dellal represents the perfect incarnation of all that is unique about the Boy Chanel handbag collection which strives far from conformist notions of femininity.

Ultra-modern, refined and mysterious, Alice Della is the latest in the line of  CHANEL muses, each boasting their own inimitable allure – that je ne sais quoi that Mademoiselle herself perfected.

The advertising campaign shot by Karl Lagerfeld will be revealed in March 2012.  I can’t wait to see this.  From what I can see from the preview I already love what Alice Dellal is wearing and she looks more feminine than she normally does.

Chanel Christmas 2011 Accessories Collection

Chanel Christmas 2011 Accessories CollectionI just came across some images of the Chanel Christmas 2011 Accessories collection and I’d be happy to find any of these items in my Christmas stocking or under the tree.  The collection features leather goods in a lavender leather, accessories in a muted color palette of lavender, grey and ivory and items in signature black and white. It’s hard to pick a favorite but I’m partial to anything with pearls or in black  – Santa, I hope you’re listening!  The collection will be in stores in December so start saving your pretty pennies or start dropping those hints :)

Chanel Purse Costumes

chanel purse costume

I love inanimate object costumes – so why not dress up as a Chanel 2.55 purse?  Apparently, that is a thing.  I’m not sure how many you need to see to make it a thing, but I did a quick google search and I think I came up with enough images to deem it a “thing.”  This costume requires a bit more DIY knowledge than the Karl Lagerfeld or Coco Chanel costumes.  You’ll either need to know how to sew or know someone who sews.  Either way, these costumes are awesome.  I wonder if anyone has dressed up as a bottle of Chanel No.5?
