It’s been a crazy week and I’m sorry for the lack of posts. Between webinars, collaborative projects and photo shoots there’s been little time for actual blog posting. I did manage to get a few goodies up so here are some highlights from MISS and La Chanelphile.

Karl Lagerfeld Designs Diamond Collar for Queen’s Diamond Jubilee

karl lagerfeld queen diamond jubilee black diamond collar
To celebrate the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee, VOGUE jewellery editor Carol Woolton is curating a diamond exhibition called “Brilliant”. Karl Lagerfeld designed a one-of-a-kind black leather collar with 40 carats of black diamonds and a 22.33-carat emerald set in black rhodium-plated silver for the exhibition that is valued at $45,000. Lagerfeld told Vogue UK:

I’m renowned for my love of a high collar and I wanted to create a true collector’s item with this one-off piece…Merging the masculine with the feminine and uniting the world of fine jewellery and high fashion, to me this collar is a work of art and a real show-stopper.

Lagerfeld also signed a sketch he drew of the collar and the sketch will be exhibited along side the collar at the Royal Hospital from June 27 through July 4.

Chanel ULTRA Fine Jewelry Collection – A Story of Contrasts Video

Here’s another video featuring the Chanel Ultra Fine Jewelry collection. These rings are striking and I love the way the look stacked together on one finger. I also love the idea of one of these rings as a wedding band. Here’s what Chanel has to say about the collection:

A harmonious balance of beauty and strength, the ULTRA Collection stands out with unparalleled graphic style. Contemporary, high-tech ceramic creates fluid lines, while the bold black and white palette is emblematic of the House of Chanel.

Flash Back Friday: Chanel Fashion Show Video Medley

I watch this video every so often – I love that it’s a medley of different Chanel fashion shows ranging from the 1930s to 1983. One of my favorite things about this video is seeing Coco Chanel in action. I hope you enjoy this as much as I do.

MISS NEWS

I’m not sure if you know, but La Chanelphile is part of the MISS Omni Media family. I co-founded MISS in 2006 and I later went on to start La Chanelphile and Lil’ Miss. La Chanelphile actually started out as a column on MISS called “Cuckoo for Coco”. When I realized how much I enjoyed writing about Chanel I thought I would start a separate blog devoted just to Chanel. In an effort to keep you updated as to what’s going on in the MISS Omni Media family, at the end of each week I’ll be posting some highlights from MISS and Lil’ Miss.
