Chanel Spring-Summer 2013 Accessories Preview

chanel spring 2013 accessories

Some bloggers (ahem, not me :( ) were invited to see a preview of the Chanel Spring-Summer 2013 accessories in the Chanel showroom. I’ve selected my favorite pictures from each blog but invite you to take a look at the blogs to see all the photos.

I have to say that this is one of my favorite accessories collections to date. I already know that I want to save up for a red Chanel Boy Brick Bag (aka the LEGO bag) and a pearl bracelet. And you know I adore the glasses with a silhouette of Mlle. Chanel herself perched on top but I want that more as a collector and not as someone that would actually wear them. Note to all family and friends – please no gifts this upcoming birthday and Christmas – instead please make donations to my Chanel Spring 2013 accessories fund! xo

Karl Lagerfeld Interview – Chanel Spring-Summer 2013 RTW

Here’s Karl Lagerfeld on the Chanel Spring-Summer 2013 Ready-to-Wear. As is customary the interview is full of Karlisms. He may say some things that are out of line sometimes but I love this man. His talents are limitless and yet he is still so humble – he leaves it up to us to determine whether the clothing is chic. Uncle Karl, of course it is!

Chanel Spring-Summer 2013 Ready-to-Wear Video

Yesterday Chanel presented its Spring-Summer 2013 ready-to-wear collection at the Grand Palais in Paris. Models walked on solar panels as they made their way around wind turbines to the tunes of the Chromatics. I’m working on the collection reviews and formatting images but in the mean time I thought I would start off by sharing some videos Chanel sent over for your viewing pleasure.

First up we have the video of the Chanel Spring-Summer 2013 Ready-to-Wear runway presentation…

Tick of the clock
I want your love
Running up that hill
Kill for love

Chanel Spring-Summer 2013 Ready-to-Wear Invitation

Chanel will present its spring-summer 2013 on October 2nd at the Grand Palais in Paris France. It’s hard to figure out what the imagery in the invitation is.  It almost looks like a photo of mountainous terrain taken from above, and awash in blue.  There’s been so much natural inspiration – the Sea for Spring-Summer 2012, the scorched earth for Fall-Winter 2011/12 and stalagmites for Fall-Winter 2012/13 and who can forget the iceberg of Fall-Winter 2010/11? I wonder if Karl Lagerfeld is keeping with a theme based on nature or if the imagery on the invitation is more abstract.  We’ll find out on October 2nd…
