The Chanel Fall/Winter 09/10 is what dreams are made of. Little girls, rockstars, of all shapes and sizes aspire to have at least one piece of Chanel in their lifetime.
We will always remember where and when we first received the gift and fantasy that is Chanel. I just love the story of Coco herself and how she created her empire from pauper to Fashion Icon.
I have meet young fashionista’s who would prefer a Chanel bag to an engagement ring.
When I thought why not give my readers a taste of the Fall collection to remind us what to aspire to this season, or what to wear to fashion week this season.
Some women are collectors and prefer the vintage Chanel pieces they find from the likes of V4Vintage. Others think I need to stay current and have signature pieces. Then my daughters can enjoy my vintage pieces when she is a teenager, so she wont have to buy a knock off. Because if you cannot afford the real thing its better to go with out!
Some are lucky enough to come from a line of grandmothers, aunts and moms who share our passion and indulged themselves. This is when these beautiful times less classics turn into family air looms. Now also for men!
Chanel is always feminine and timeless. The collection is young and fresh but remains identifiably Chanel. It is transcending for all women with the gout for la class, or edge.
The pink frills,emerald green classic Chanel suit accented with the classic Chanel black, and high necklines with ruffled detail. The collection gives us clean silhouettes that are signature to the house are thematic in the lines and maintain that Chanel “je ne sais quoi”.
Chanel has maintained its desire from women across the years, speaking to current trends, yet maintaining it exclusivity and cult following.
Just being at a Chanel show is an experience that I have had the pleasure to partake in. What you do learn is that with Chanel its all about the accessories!
You will see A-lister to R&B songstress, to Mr. West himself. This is the new face of Chanel. Rock chic, down to earth Luxury!
