Chanel J12 Matte Black

Chanel recently released the J12 in Matte Black and I love it. It’s so elegant and I’m trying not to like it because I received a Chanel J12 Chromatic last year, but alas, the more I look at it, the more I love it.

Chanel J12 White Video

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.

Chanel Links: Thanksgiving 2011 Weekend

I took a much-needed few days off to celebrate Thanksgiving (and my birthday) but that didn’t stop Chanel or Karl Lagerfeld from making the news. Let’s play a little catch-up to see what happened in the Chanel world last week…

I’m not sure why everyone on the interweb is so surprised that Karl Lagerfeld makes a lot of money considering who he works for and the breadth of his projects – but he does, ok? WWD

As part of the project, he will create a series of collectible sketches, illustrations and columns as well as choose the stories for the newspaper and give his notoriously provocative comments on the news of the day.”  Metro

Yoon Seung Ah as Coco Chanel

14 stars were chosen by 15 designers as their ‘muses’, and Chanel picked Yoon Seung Ah in Vogue magazine’s latest pictorial in the December issue. (Not sure which country’s edition of Vogue).  AllKPop

Back in July I posted about the pens and lighters that Karl Lagerfeld designed for S.T. Dupont – you can buy them now on the Colette webshop.

Chanel J12 Chromatic Titanium Ceramic Watch

Chanel J12 Chromatic Titanium Ceramic Watch

A few weeks ago we gave you a sneak peek of the soon-to-release Chanel J12 Chromatic watch.  What makes this watch different from the existing J12 models is the unique compound from which it is made.  This is no regular ceramic – it is ceramic mixed with diamond powder and titanium to give the watch the look of metal, with the durability of ceramic.  As Charlie Sheen would say…”Uh, winning!”  The Chanel J12 Chromatic Titanium Ceramic watch is gorgeous – and the addition of diamonds doesn’t hurt!  I would love this watch but something tells me it’s going to be pretty spendy.  The watch releases on June 1, 2011.
