Coco Cocoon Collection Website Launch

Coco Cocoon Collection Featuring Lily Allen

Coco Cocoon Collection Featuring Lily Allen

“True luxury is when something is as beautiful on the inside as it is on the outside.”
-Coco Chanel

A few month’s ago we reported that Lily Allen was the face for a new collection for Chanel – the Coco Cocoon Collection.  The collection launches on October 3rd, and to showcase the items and their versatility, Chanel has launched the official Coco Cocoon Collection website.

Coco Chanel was a master at combining casual and luxurious so the Coco Cocoon collection is something that fits in nicely with Chanel’s original vision.  Made of nylon or lambskin, the collection is called Cocoon because it’s reminiscent of the big down coats we cocoon ourselves in during the winter.  Many of the styles are reversible (thus as beautiful inside as they are out) and feature very subtle branding.  The collection is available in beige, black, chocolate or burgandy – the burgandy is the same legendary shade used for the lining of the famous “2.55″ handbag.  The collection also includes small goods like wallets, cases, pouches and key rings.

A few months back we showed you the indulgent Chanel Métiers D’Art Pre-Fall 2009 Paris-Moscou collection and the coordinating Paris-Moscou nail colours, and now we dug up some more photos of the collection to share with you.  If you know me, you know that I love all things Chanel, but this collection is one of the best I’ve seen.

Karl Lagerfeld is a master and staying true to the roots of the house of Chanel, while also injecting youth, fun an creativity into everything he does.  I love that he really digs deep into the inspiration behind a line, researches all of the nuances, and translates them into elaborate, whimsical clothing and accessories.

The Paris-Moscou theme stems from Chanel’s connections to exiled Russian royalty and her relationships with them influenced some of her collections.  I’m not sure if the timing of this collection was intentional, but this year also marks the release of a film detailing the love affair Mlle. Chanel had with another famous Russian, Igor Stravinsky.  Coincidence, or not, the Paris-Moscou collection has a fairytale quality to it – they seem the perfect pieces for a young czarina.
