inside chanel coco chanel timeline

Chanel always seems to launch a bunch of things at once. Just off the heels of the Chanel Spring-Summer 2013 Ready-to-Wear collection, Chanel is launching Inside Chanel, a website which gives the inside story of Coco Chanel and the Chanel brand. Right now, the site includes a timeline that documents Coco Chanel from her birth to her death – with all of her milestones in between. The timeline covers the rest of the brands history covering the launch of new product lines, fragrances and notable hires like Jacques Polge and Karl Lagerfeld. Chapter One focuses on the story of Chanel No.5 and has vintage photos of old Chanel ads along with a video. See the website for yourself at Inside-Chanel.com.

Chanel “Obsession” by Cyrille de Vignemont

Still from Chanel "Obsession" by Cyrille de Vignemont

Cyrille de Vignemont created a video for Chanel featuring British model and Karl Lagerfeld muse Edie Campbell. The video plays on the duality that is Chanel – black/white, masculine/feminine – using paneled mirrors reminscent of the ones at 31 Rue Cambon. On his website de Vignemont stated “Conceived as a mirror piece, the film illustrates Coco Chanel’s famous sentence ‘Luxury is something beautiful inside and out’ and plays on the star model’s identities: girl or boy, eternal or modern, but always marked by CHANEL Obsession.”

The styling in this video is impeccable and the song is gets under your skin and stays there – in a good way.
Cyrille de Vignemont stated that Obsession is also available as an interactive iPad app but I haven’t been able to find anything on the App store yet. I’ll keep you posted! For now, enjoy the video and join me in obsessing over all the gorgeous Chanel…
