This is not an actual shopping mall but a set display built specially for the Chanel Fall/Winter 2014/15 Ready-to-Wear Show. This is by far, in my personal opinion, Karl Lagerfeld’s best set ever. It beats everything else he has done hands down and that includes the ice bergs, giant jacket and jet sets.
I simply adore Coco Chanel even though her personal life was a mess. (Yes, I watched the movie with my sister cause no one could in my social circle could appreciate such stuff…)
Coco Chanel was a style-setter and never a follower. She had the guts to go ahead and do whatever she wanted. Coco had style and style stays with you forever while fashion trends come and go. Blessed with nimble fingers and creating many iconic designs. Everything in her collection just simply oozes class and elegance.
Even till now, Chanel’s true essence are reflected in the designs by her successors. Her fashion designs are kept minimalistic with the usual blacks and whites. And this is why I love Chanel so much. Every piece or design is always so classy and timeless.
I love everything Chanel but the price is not very kind to my wallet. So it’s a rare indulgence I only get to satisfy once in a blue moon. I was overjoyed when I got my first Chanel. It was a Chanel Kelly, a design that is since discontinued.
This gorgeous bag is decked out in durable Chanel caviar leather and features the signature logo clasp in the center. I got it for a steal from a reputable Japanese reseller for Chanel vintage goods. And this bag has gotten me several compliments whenever I go because it’s not a common sight.
My next Chanel conquest was a Chanel GST from Europe thanks to my BFF. This gorgeous classy bag is big enough for office or weekend outings. And I had been eying it for ages so now that I have it. I’ve pretty much satisfied my Chanel lemmings for the moment.
I guess you can notice the trend now, I’m into them black, caviar leather with the classy gold fittings. To me, these designs are classic and will never go out of style. I would love to keep these bags for a long time too so the caviar leather helps maintain the durability of the bags.
So if you have excess cash, you may consider investing on a Chanel piece. They are really worth the money.
