  3. CHANEL Haute Couture Film by Trevor Undi

    Trevor Undi has made a film of the Chanel Haute Couture Autumn-Winter 2012/13 collection set to the tune of Garment (For a Garment) by Alva Noto. I love the lighting and how the models have a halo of light around them. The varying speeds from slow motion to fast give us a a sense of movement and by seeing the models walk in slow motion you really get to see the details of the garments and how they move with the body. I really enjoyed this video and I hope you do too…

  6. Chanel Coco Noir Out Now

    I was at Macy’s in Union Square, San Francisco yesterday and was happy to see that they were one of the forty doors chosen to launch Chanel Coco Noir. There was a really cool black display that explained the scent and displayed the bottles. I couldn’t get a really good picture because the lights were reflecting off the box but take my word for it, it was lovely. I also got to sample the scent before the launch - yay! I tried it on and it was pretty and definitely reminiscent of Coco - it seemed like a good mix of Coco and Coco Mademoiselle. I think I was hoping for something more Oriental. I was lucky enough to score a sample vial so I’ll be wearing Chanel Coco Noir for the next few days and I’ll decide whether to get a bottle based on how it wears. I have to say that I’m tempted to get it just for the bottle though - the black bottle is beautiful in person!

  9. Coco Chanel Capsule Collection - Vintage Jewelry Sale on 1st Dibs

    1st Dibs Chanel Vintage Coco Chanel Birthday Sale
    Douglas Rosin presents a Coco Chanel capsule collection of vintage jewelry for sale on 1stDibs to commemorate the eve of Coco Chanel’s 129th birthday on Sunday. I gave you a preview of the 1stDibs Chanel birthday sale yesterday but I’ve taken screenshots of the entire sale and editorial they put together. It’s informative, gorgeous and so inspiring. I love seeing earlier creations because I feel like they give us a glimpse into who Coco Chanel was. One piece is more gorgeous than the next - I love the excess of it all. It’s obvious why Coco Chanel is responsible for making costume jewelry popular. Enjoy, and hopefully you might even be able to buy something!
