Chanel Fall-Winter 2013/2014 Accessories Preview

Chanel Fall 2013 Act II Accessories

Last week I was invited to the Chanel Fall-Winter 2013/2014 Accessories Preview but unfortunately, I wasn’t able to attend. Luckily, the folks at Purse Blog/Purse Forum were in attendance and took gorgeous photos of the handbags, shoes and jewelry we should expect in boutiques later in the year.

As you remember the Chanel Fall-Winter 2013/2014 Ready-to-Wear collection had a chain theme that ran its course through the collection. The Chanel Fall-Winter 2013/2014 Accessories feature heavy chain embellishments and often paired with leather, velvet and tweed. Check out some highlights from the collection below.

Chanel Ready-to-Wear Autumn-Winter 2013/2014 Beauty

chanel fall winter 2013 2014 makeup

The most striking aspect of the Chanel Ready-to-Wear Autumn-Winter 2013/2014 makeup were the bejeweled eyes of all the models walking down the runway. But of course, every season the question most people have is, “what is the new nail color??” The answer is Elixir, and it will be out late summer as part of the Fall 2013 Collection.

Chanel Ready-to-Wear Autumn-Winter 2013/2014 Details

chanel fall winter 2013 2014 accessories

The Chanel Ready-to-Wear Fall-Winter 2013/2014 collection was a feast for the eyes for those of us that love accessories. The emphasis this season was on chains – lots of them – on everything. Boots had loose chains draping over them and shoes had chain details on the soles. Thick bracelets were stacked on wrists, while thick necklaces were worn on the napes of necks place over the hair.

My favorite part of the collection were the bags. The Boy “Lego” Brick bag makes a comeback but this time with some tweed accents. I especially loved the oversize boxy bag that models held like an oversize clutch. Chanel also presented bags oval bags, Boy Bags, and a new bag with a metal pipe-like handle. My favorite bag of all though was the little globe bags. Appearing in black and clear, the Chanel globe bag will definitely be the evening bag of the season.

Chanel Ready-to-Wear Autumn-Winter 2013/2014 Collection

chanel fall winter 2013 2014

2013 marks the 100th anniversary of the opening of Chanel’s first boutique in Deauville and to mark the occasion, Karl Lagerfeld illuminated a giant rotating globe to show the global expansion that Chanel has made in one-hundred years. From a small French seaside resort town to global domination, Karl brought to life the reach of the Chanel brand with little Chanel flags denoting the location of Chanel shops around the world.

The Chanel Fall-Winter 2013/2014 Ready-to-Wear collection like the night sky that was cast in the Grand Palais was a play of lightness and darkness. Dark, thick tweeds glistened with metallic threads woven through them mimicing twinkling stars in the dark sky. The silhouette was at times long and lean, while other pieces hit at the hip and then flared. Many pieces were accompanied by Karl’s now-signature “are they pants? are they boots? are they leggings?” leg coverings that sometimes gave the effect of high boots and at times the effect of pants. Either way, they looked great – especially in leather.

Probably the most striking item in the collection was the fur hat which Karl said was supposed to mimic Anna Wintour’s signature bob. I wasn’t a huge fan of the hat, but it added a bit more theater to an already cosmic presentation. My favorite part of the collection was the chain details – whether hanging loosely on boots, heavily stacked on wrists, or artfully draped over long hair – I can’t wait to see these pieces when they release.

What did you think of this collection? What was your favorite part?
