Fashion in the Streets: NYFW Edition Teaser

“Fashion is not something that exists in dresses only. Fashion is in the sky, in the street, fashion has to do with ideas, the way we live, what is happening.” – Gabrielle “Coco” Chanel

La Chanelphile is the blog most dear to my heart because it’s still in its infancy and showing so much promise.  I’m so enamored with the brand that ideas for different columns keep spilling out of my head – case in point – my new column “Fashion in the Streets.”  Chanel knew that fashion was all around her and that many ideas that inspire how we look come from what’s happening in life and “in the street.”  So, I’ve decided to start documenting Chanel as I see it worn in the streets. What better place to start documenting than New York Fashion Week? There is no shortage of Chanel so my job was pretty easy.  I have a ton of photos to go through but here is small teaser of what is to come.  Enjoy – and stop drooling!  Oh, and many many thanks to the lovely ladies who let me photograph them!

Chanel’s Fashion’s Night Out! Chanel Introduces Les Jeans de Chanel

In my NY Fashion Week prep I was researching the Fashion’s Night Out events and of course, the first thing I looked for was the Chanel event.  Last time I was in NY for FNO, I stopped by the Chanel boutique for the Jade and Jade Rose manicures. When I heard that Chanel was unveiling a new line of Le Vernis for FNO and giving manicures at the store, I knew immediately where I would be on FNO (just deciding which of the Chanel boutiques to go to).

Today Chanel announced the new nail colour collection, created by Peter Philips, that is releasing on FNO – Les Jeans de Chanel!  Though Chanel herself didn’t wear jeans – denim is something that she would love today.  It totally fits within her mode of working – taking something casual and making it chic, co-opting menswear and making it feminine and making comfortable clothing.  Les Jeans de Chanel is a trio of denim-inspired blues: Blue Rebel, Blue Boy and Coco Blue.  Without having seen them in person yet, based on the photo my favorites are Blue Rebel and Blue Boy.

Les Jeans de Chanel goes on sale on September 8th in Chanel boutiques and on Chanel.com.

M.I.S.S. NYFW: Fashion’s Night Out at Chanel Soho

Fashion's Night Out at Chanel Soho - Jade Nail Collection

Fashion's Night Out at Chanel Soho - Jade Nail Collection

Fashion’s Night Out was like a big party in the streets of NYC.  We started out uptown on 57th Street where all the luxury stores have flagships and then made our way down to Soho.  The scene uptown was very subdued compared to the partying in the streets of Soho.  From Opening Ceremony’s block party to the Kid Cudi listening party at A Bathing Ape, the streets were jam packed with shoppers looking for good deals and celebrity sightings.  One of my favorite destinations?  The Chanel Soho boutique.

Just in time for FNO, Chanel debuted its Jade nail colour collection: Jade and Jade Rose.  A pale pink and pale green, the Jade collection is a perfect match of the elements that inspired the colors.

As part of the FNO festivities Chanel offered free manicures using Jade and Jade Rose at the Soho boutique.  People sipped champagne, did some shopping, and got their nails did – all while shaking to the beats provided by Alexa Chung.  Having stopped by a few FNO events, this was definitely one of my favorites.  You can find the Chanel Jade nail colour collection and Chanel boutiques and online at Chanel.com.
