12 Days of Chanel: Chanel Sport

You can’t get anything with the double-C’s on it – but you can get ALMOST anything with the Chanel logo on it!  Each season, Chanel produces a fun sports item to go along with its collection.  Past favorites include a fishing reel, guitar case and bicycle.  Made for truly those who have money to burn, (or are fashion/sports fanatics) you can add to your Chanel collection by rounding it out with some sports items.  From surfing to skiing, from tennis to basketball, you can play in style with Chanel sports accessories.

Secrets of the Chanel Handbag – Part 2

The Secrets of the Chanel Handbag exhibit made its first stop in San Francisco this past weekend.  The first part of the exhibit explored the process of making a Chanel 2.55 handbag.  The other part of the exhibit highlighted vintage pieces.  When I heard that vintage pieces would be on view I was expecting a lot more than they actually had on display.

The vintage display was only in one of the store windows and featured two mannequins dressed from head-to-toe in vintage Karl Lagerfeld for Chanel.  The pieces were amazing and my favorite by far were the clear/black rain boots with chain stirrup detail in the back – TO-DIE-FOR!  The gold quilted guitar case wasn’t so bad either.  Check out the photos below of the window displays and detail shots of the vintage Chanel pieces from the archive.
