Videos: Gabrielle Chanel — Inside Chanel

Here’s the latest installment of Inside Chanel — a five-part series focusing on the biggest mystery of Chanel — Coco Chanel herself.

‘Coco’, ‘Mademoiselle’ and ‘Gabrielle Chanel’ aim to expose Mademoiselle Chanel’s travels, loves and choices that influenced her style and visionary spirit. Similarly, ‘Coco by Karl’ and ‘CHANEL by Karl’ reveal CHANEL Artistic Director Karl Lagerfeld’s interpretation of Mademoiselle Chanel’s values, his approach to fashion and style and his devotion to creativity. These exceptional mini movies offer a remarkable take on the story of Mademoiselle Chanel and her tremendous legacy, which constantly serve as Karl Lagerfeld’s inspiration.

Coco Chanel: A New Portrait by Marion Pike, Paris 1967-71

In what is becoming an endless ring of museum exhibition surrounding the mystery that is Coco Chanel, the London College of Fashion is hosting Coco Chanel: A New Portrait by Marion Pike, Paris 1967-71, a new exhibition that explores the life stories, friendships of Californian artist Marion Pike met Coco Chanel.

Curated by London College of Fashion Professor, and Chanel biographer, Amy de la Haye, all of the pieces in the exhibit have been lent by Jeffie Pike Durham, who has become her mother’s archivist.

If you are in London, or close to London, this is a definite must see. I wish I had a budget to travel the world to visit Chanel exhibitions, but alas, I don’t. If you go to the exhibit and can manage any (non-flash, of course) shots, I would love to see them — and even post them.

Date: 5th September- 16th November

Location: Fashion Space Gallery, London College of Fashion, 20 John Princes Street, W1G 0BJ.

Times:
Monday–Friday: 10am–6pm
Saturday: 10am–4pm
Sunday & Public Holidays: Closed

Admission: Free

Video: Chanel Fall 2013 Superstition Makeup Collection

I love this video for the Chanel Fall 2013 Superstition makeup collection. I saw it on the Chanel website and was hoping it would be on YouTube. Chanel always does a wonderful job of paying tribute to the legacy and codes that Coco Chanel left us.

Sorry for my absence but I took a little break for the 4th of July week. Luckily we had gorgeous weather and I’ve been spending my time with my family and taking swimming breaks whenever we can. I’ve got a nice base tan going – Coco Chanel would be proud.

I’ll be updating you on the Chanel Haute Couture Fall-Winter 2013/2014 show that Chanel presented earlier this week soon.

Hope you are enjoying your weekend!

Hip Hop Loves Chanel and Karl Lagerfeld

Luxury brands are constantly referenced in hip hop but Chanel and Karl Lagerfeld are having a moment right now. Chanel West Coast an LA-based rapper best known for her work on shows with skater Rob Dyrdek has a much hyped track entitled “Karl Lagerfeld.” You can hear a bit of it below and see a glimpse of the behind the scenes action of the video shoot…

Next up, Wiz Khalifa dropped a new tracked called “Old Chanel” – I think he’s referring to Vintage Chanel but maybe “Old” Chanel sounded better with the rest of his rhymes…

Finally Troy Noka just released a track called Coco Chanel…

SmurFashion by AleXsandro Palombo

Fashion Smurfs by AleXsandro Palombo

Fashion Smurfs by AleXsandro Palombo

La La La La La La, La La La La La …

Sorry, everytime I think about the Smurfs that song pops into my head and I get carried away. My favorite fashion satirist AleXsandro Palombo has transformed Coco Chanel and Karl Lagerfeld into Simpsons characters and now he’s in his blue period and transformed our favorite designers into Smurfs! Introducing Coco Chanel Smurf and Karl Lagerfeld Smurf…Karl Smurf has an uncanny resemblance to Papa Smurf, non?

If the Smurfs aren’t your thing then remember the time we saw Karl Lagerfeld My Little Pony, Coco Chanel Sponge Bob and Karl Lagerfeld Sponge Bob?
