Closer Look: Chanel Spring 2013 Accessories

Chanel Spring 2013 Accessories

The Chanel Spring-Summer 2013 collection – especially the accessories – was one of my favorites that I’ve seen in a while.  While the hula hoop bag stole the show, there were so many good pieces of note.  My darling camellia sneakers (which are in store now for $1900), those amazing sunglasses with Coco Chanel’s silhouette on them and of course the Boy “Lego” Brick bag (which will retail for $9900).  There go my dreams of saving up for the camellia sneakers and Boy “Lego” Brick bag. So now I’m left to drooling over – and sharing – pictures on the internet.  Come join me and let’s enjoy these together…

Chanel Avant Karl – Rare Period Chanel Costume Jewelry

rare period chanel costume jewelry 1stdibsHere is my belated gift to you: a feast of Chanel costume jewelry treasures designed by Gabriella “Coco” Chanel herself.  This very rare collection of jewels is now on sale online through 1stDibs.com.  Prices range from $1,000 to $20,000 and every piece is a treasure.  A true glimpse into Mademoiselle’s exquisite taste, the collection of jewelry is museum worthy.  I’m so very jealous of anyone that purchases any of these pieces.  Ranging from $1,400 to $22,000 this jewelry is truly worth the investment.

Chanel Christmas 2011 Accessories Collection

Chanel Christmas 2011 Accessories CollectionI just came across some images of the Chanel Christmas 2011 Accessories collection and I’d be happy to find any of these items in my Christmas stocking or under the tree.  The collection features leather goods in a lavender leather, accessories in a muted color palette of lavender, grey and ivory and items in signature black and white. It’s hard to pick a favorite but I’m partial to anything with pearls or in black  – Santa, I hope you’re listening!  The collection will be in stores in December so start saving your pretty pennies or start dropping those hints :)

Chanel Shanghai Accessories

Chanel has Shanghai on the brain for 2010.  First there was the Chanel Shanghai boutique opening, then there was the Chanel Métiers D’Art Pre-Fall 2010 Paris-Shanghai collection.  We know Coco Chanel was infatuated with Shanghai and would have loved to have traveled there.  But I wonder if that was the only inspiration for the Chanel Shanghai collection – could it be that it was timed to coincide with the upcoming World’s Fair Expo in Shanghai in May, 2010.  Whatever the reason, the accessories are amazing!

After the success of the Chanel Paris-Moscou Matryoshka doll purse, Uncle Karl has created a similar purse for the Shanghai collection. The matching drop earrings are adorable – I wonder if he used these little ladies on any other accessories? Lagerfeld also reinterpreted the classic 2.55 bag with large sequined palletes in red and jade.

My other favorite bag is Chanel’s rendition of the classic takeout box – with leather chain strap and all!  The Chanel cuff is also especially beautiful and is reminiscent of Chinese pottery and vases.

This is just a little glimpse into the details of the collection and I can’t wait to see more!
