The new Chanel ad campaign for the Fall-Winter 2013/14 ad campaign, shot by Karl Lagerfeld, features Ashleigh Good, Chiharu Okunugi & Soo Joo Park. The trio of women follow lady-like pursuits such as sipping tee, embroidering and listening to music — in what seems to be outer space, considering the lack of gravity. I’m liking the images and I’m glad that Karl has added some diversity to his choice of models.

Karl Lagerfeld has once again made a fashion film — “Women Only” — to launch the most recent collection soon to hit boutiques, the Chanel Fall-Winter 2013/14 pre-collection. He cleverly uses his previous film “Once Upon a Time”, featuring Keira Knightley as Coco Chanel, as the backdrop for “Women Only”. Karl chose the obscurity of a Parisian cinema as the set and we see models stroll in – individually and in pairs – all wearing head to to Chanel.
I think “Women Only” is one of Karl’s best fashion films – it’s just another medium for us to see the gorgeous Chanel creations in a different light – rather than just staring at stills. “Women Only” does a beautiful job of highlighting the Chanel collection – I’m convinced, I want it all!

Get ready to have your mind blown. You could see the amazing details of the fabrics in some of the images I posted earlier this week – but those photos don’t illustrate the work that goes into each piece. The video shows the attention to detail and the many hands that touch each garment before it’s presented on the runway. Such beautiful work – prepare to have your breath taken away…

In the latest Chanel + Lisa Eldridge video, Lisa Eldridge creates an enchanting makeup look with Chanel’s Fall 2013 “Collection Superstition,” inspired by the good-luck charms and the magic of bronze.
I’ve been wanting to get Mysterious but now that I see it on Lisa in the video, I feel I absolutely need it for fall. What are you getting from this collection?

The Chanel Fall-Winter 2013 2014 Haute Couture Collection debuted last week in the Grand Palais in Paris. Set amidst the ruins of a theater with a modern city in the background, the decor provided the theme — Old World to New World.
The clothing however, did not reflect much of the Old World – at least no particular era. There were hints of the Old World everywhere but the collection had such a modern flair that none of the pieces looked dated. The fabrics, embellishments and treatments on the clothing are all of the future. All together though, there was no doubt this was a Chanel collection. The fabulous tweeds, the hats, the gorgeous dresses — Mlle. Chanel would definitely approve.

The dramatic look seen in the Chanel Fall-Winter 2013/14 Haute Couture show was all about strong eyebrows and expansive blush – as in expanding from the cheeks to the eyes. Many waited to see a new Le Vernis nail colour on nails but instead were greeted with fingers adorned with multiple rings on fingers from the base of the fingers to the tips. Sam McKnight completed the look with pompadour flat tops and ponytails dressed up with “back bands.” Here is a complete breakdown of how Peter Philips created the makeup look for the Chanel Fall-Winter 2013/14 Haute Couture show.
