Chanel Links!

The end of October was a bit busy for me because my daughter was celebrating Halloween for the first time with trick or treating and events at school and I took some time to spend with my family. But, Chanel news doesn’t stop coming. Here are some of my favorite Chanel-related items…

Karl Lagerfeld sketched a “no smoking” sign but it’s not your typical sign. However, he was not making a statement about unhealthy habits, instead he was noting all the YSL references on many runways and he was stating that you would find a “smoking” – the french term for tuxedo – on his runway. Lagerfeld stated: “We don’t have to do smoking. Hedi Slimane really does it well.” WWD

Chanel Spring-Summer 2013 Accessories Preview

Some bloggers (ahem, not me :( ) were invited to see a preview of the Chanel Spring-Summer 2013 accessories in the Chanel showroom. I’ve selected my favorite pictures from each blog but invite you to take a look at the blogs to see all the photos.

I have to say that this is one of my favorite accessories collections to date. I already know that I want to save up for a red Chanel Boy Brick Bag (aka the LEGO bag) and a pearl bracelet. And you know I adore the glasses with a silhouette of Mlle. Chanel herself perched on top but I want that more as a collector and not as someone that would actually wear them. Note to all family and friends – please no gifts this upcoming birthday and Christmas – instead please make donations to my Chanel Spring 2013 accessories fund! xo

Chanel sent images of Karl Lagerfeld photographing Stef van der Laan for the Chanel Spring Summer 2013 Press Kit.  I love seeing candid photos of everyone behind-the-scenes at work and it’s a great way to get a glimpse of the process.  You can also catch some details of the collection in the close ups – all photos by Olivier Saillant.

Chanel Spring-Summer 2013 Ready-to-Wear Show Beauty

Pearls played a huge part in the Chanel Spring-Summer 2013 Ready-to-Wear so it’s no surprise that the makeup was luminous and iridescent like pearls. I loved the large pearls in the models’ hair – very similar to the pearls from the Chanel Spring-Summer 2012 ready-to-wear collection only larger. To learn how to make similar pins, check out my post on DIY Chanel-Inspired pearl hairpins.

Usually the first thing I look for is the new Le Vernis but all the images I could find looked like the models were just wearing a clear top coat or a traditional French manicure. We learn below that there is a new color that was used – not sure what Eastern Light looks like but I’ll keep you posted!

Peter Philips, Creative Director of CHANEL Makeup used the following CHANEL products to create the runway beauty looks:

Chanel Spring-Summer 2013 Ready-to-Wear Details

You’d think after almost thirty years at Chanel that we’ve seen all of Karl Lagerfeld’s tricks yet each season he amazes me. Like the apparel, Karl stepped away from signature Chanel pieces like cuffs and quilted 2.55 purses. Instead we saw enlarged pearls either along in a bracelet or in clusters around the wrists and necks of the models. Many of the purses were angular and some even looked like Lego’s (in shape and color). The spectacular piece that has the internet going nuts is the hula hoop beach bag – very practical in its impracticality. Karl explained in an interview that you can stand the bag in the sand and hang things over the top to dry. But while everyone has been eyeing that bag, I’ve been eyeing the sunglasses the model was wearing with that bag. On top of the left lense of the sunglasses is a mini Coco figure. How fun! I cannot wait to see these glasses in person they are amazing! See more details below…

Karl Lagerfeld has had impressive sets each season and when you think that you’ve seen it all, he brings wind turbines and solar panels (as the flooring) to the Grand Palais in Paris. Inspired by light and air, these themes were evident in the volume (big rounded shoulders juxtaposed with cropped bolero jackets) and textures of the clothing (chiffon and mesh).

Chanel Spring-Summer 2013 Ready-to-Wear Collection

Apparel wise, this was one of my favorite apparel collections I’ve seen in a long time. It’s interesting because Karl Lagerfeld stripped away many of the Chanel signatures like the chains, the buttons and the braid trim yet the collection was quintessentially Chanel. Instead, Karl Lagerfeld focused on Coco Chanel’s iconic pearls (and a bit of matelasse for good measure). He made pearls modern by enlarging them and grouping them in large clusters. I especially loved the large pearls on the clothing – especially that denim dress! Lagerfeld closed the collection with spring-appropriate dressed with floral appliques made from plastic petals.

I loved this collection and can’t wait for some of the accessories to hit shelves. The collection looks so grand set amongst the wind turbines it must have looked so amazing in person!
