We’ve seen many photo art projects depicting Chanel — from burgers, lollipops and ice cream cones. Artist and photographer Clara Hallencreutz is throwing her hat in the ring with a series of still life photographs of the infamous double C’s done up in food and flowers. You can buy her prints on her online store.

There are a lot of back Chanel-inspired iPhone cases out there -you know the ones with all the rhinestones – but I saw these Le Vernis phone cases on Instagram yesterday and my jaw dropped. These are amazing! I tracked them down on Etsy and yes, I ordered one in Dragon. You can find the Le Vernis iPhone cases on Etsy.
It’s been a whirlwind of Chanel Spring-Summer 2013 Haute Couture coverage but as that’s wrapping up I just wanted to share with you a project I worked on with my other site MISS. I teamed up with MINX to design seven sets of nail wraps and of course, considering my love of the double-C’s one of the sets was inspired by Chanel. All of the sets are available now on MinxTastingRoom.com and I hope you don’t mind my sharing my other designs below.
I hope you like them!

When I was asked by Intel to snap and share images of designs that inspire my love of fashion it was a no brainer. As a Chanelphile, you can see Coco Chanel’s influence everywhere in how women dress almost one-hundred years after she started designing. Today, I’m sharing with you some pieces from my closet – most are Chanel – some are just Chanel-inspired – but all reflect my love of the Double C.
What I love most about Chanel are the design elements that were so important to Coco Chanel – simplicity, functionality and comfort. Her classic designs look as modern today as they did sixty years ago. And like all good design, her works don’t just look good, they feel good and are comfortable.
In some ways the Ultrabook™ inspired by Intel is like a classic little black dress in your closet. It’s dependable and can run for hours and standby for days. At less than an inch thick, the lightweight and highly portable Ultrabook™ is easy to grab and go anywhere and probably much smaller than your favorite bag that you carry your life in. The Ultrabook™ wakes up in a flash, so you get quick access to your favorite content by going from zero to go in seconds.
I hope you enjoy the images of some of my favorite Chanel and Chanel-inspired pieces from my closet. Keep up with me on Instagram by follwing me @MissGDK.
Now you don’t have to sacrifice beauty for power. Introducing the ultra-sleek, ultra-responsive Ultrabook™, Inspired by Intel. Visit intel.com/ultrabook for more information.

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!

I’ve been sitting on these photos for some time, I must admit that I see a lot more Chanel on the streets but I don’t walk around with my camera and/or phone out all the time so most of the time the Chanels just walk on by… But sometimes, I get lucky like I did at the Alameda Point Antique Fair. It’s hard to know what faux or not – some are definitely fake, and some I just don’t know but I like seeing anything Chanel inspired….
I also saw some gems in San Francisco like the blue purse, metallic ballet flats and the very fake (but very funny) sweat shirt…
