Flash Back Friday: Inès de la Fressange for Chanel

Ines de La Fressange Chanel

Inès de la Fressange was Karl Lagerfeld’s muse in the 1980s. What a great time to be his muse! She was the first model to sign an exclusive contract with an haute couture fashion house – in this case Chanel. The relationship between Karl Lagerfeld and Inès de la Fressange produced a large body of work as she was the face of the company for most of the 80 when Chanel re-emerged in 1983 until 1989. Their relationship simmered down when she decided to lend her likeness to create a bust of Marianne, the symbol of the French Republic. Karl Lagerfeld and Inès de la Fressange reunited in the past several years and we even saw Inès de la Fressange walk the runway for the Chanel Spring/Summer 2011 show.

I’ve compiled some of my favorite videos, photos and ad campaigns featuring the lovely Inès de la Fressange. Enjoy!

French Coco by Chanel Ad

I can’t get enough of these ads – I don’t know the exact year but the print ads are from 1986 to 1988 so I believe the videos are from the same time. I hate to say this but I find the video below, a commercial for the U.S. market to be a bit silly. I much prefer the French ad, it’s much more chic and truer to the brand.

US Coco by Chanel Ad

Someone, please tell me what they are saying… and how amazing is that fashion show in the background?!

The exhibit opens tomorrow! Are you going??

I am so sad to say that I will not be going – BIG SAD FACE. I was just in NY a few weeks ago and buying tickets on short notice unfortunately, was cost prohibitive. But there is some good news. I’m taking the money I would have spent on a ticket and spending it on the website. There will be some cool new changes coming soon so stay tuned and I hope it will be worth it to you!

Chanel “Paris-Bombay” Bombay Express 2012 Makeup

chanel bombay express makeupBack in December I showed you the beauty for Chanel Métiers D’Art Paris-Bombay Pre-Fall 2012 collection and now we have official images of the pieces in the Chanel Bombay Express makeup collection.  The collection features a lovely Poudre Compacte called Route des Indes de Chanel which is a lovely golden color used to highlight and matches many skintones. As with all of Chanel’s special palettes, the Route des Indes de Chanel compact features an Indian-inspired design.

The Joues Contraste Powder Blush in Brume d’Or is a lovely pinkish-peach with a hint of gold and the new Rouge Coco Shine
in Empreinte is a nice nude color to balance out the dramatic and bold eyemakeup.  Finally there’s Le Vernis in Diwali, a luminous gold shade named for the Indian festival of lights.

I love the items in the collection – I’m a huge fan of dramatic eye makeup with a nude lip and I think these colors will look especially pretty with a tanned summer glow.  The collection is set to release this month.

Chanel’s Espace Parfum in Bloomingdale’s NYC

chanel espace parfum bloomingdales

While I was in New York, I stopped by Chanel’s Espace Parfum in Bloomingdale’s. The fragrance bar is as beautiful in person as it is in photos and is the only place outside of Chanel boutiques where you can find Les Exclusifs and other limited distribution scents. If you make an appointment, you can meet with a Chanel fragrance specialist who will walk you through all of the Chanel scents.

I wasn’t in town long enough to meet a fragrance specialist but I will definitely make an appointment the next time I’m in New York. If you are in NY or visit NY you should make an appointment to learn about all of the Chanel scents.

Flash Back Friday: Vintage Chanel at A Second Chance Designer Resale Boutique

vintage chanel a second chance

While I was in New York I had the chance to visit A Second Chance – a designer resale boutique that has an extensive collection of vintage Chanel jewlery, handbags, shoes and clothing. There are two locations, one in Soho and one on the Upper East Side and both are crammed with designer products. I could spend hours in each shop just discovering all the pieces – one item is better than the next.

The Soho shop has a nice selection of Chanel, but if you want to see the real deal collection then head up to the Upper East Side location. I just stared at the jewelry in the cases and pictured myself wearing all of it – at once! And if you want a 2.55 bag you can definitely get one here – they are not cheap, but they cost a lot less than purchasing a new one. While I was there I was shopping alongside Catherine Zeta Jones who was wearing Chanel shoes that she had purchased on a previous visit to A Second Chance.

I could go on an on about how amazing the selection at A Second Chance is (and I almost don’t want to share for purely selfish reasons!) but I’ll let the pictures do the talking. I only took photos of a fraction of what they have – click on the first image to see all of the images larger.
