Boy Chanel AW13/14

Boy Chanel AW13/14

Can we talk Boy Chanel for a minute?  I’ll be the first to admit I wasn’t overly in love when the new shape Chanel bag  launched a couple of years ago, but slowly, the Boy has been growing on me and now I want one. Badly. The newly launched AW13/14 collection of Boy Chanel bags has officially cemented its status as one of the brand’s classic staples. They come in a bunch of different sizes, leathers (calf, goat, python, alligator) and […]

Tokidoki x Karl Lagerfeld

Tokidoki x Karl Lagerfeld

I’m a bit of a sucker for collectable dolls. Add Karl Lagerfeld and his cat Choupette to the mix, and I’m officially in love… Tokidoki has collaborated with Karl Lagerfeld to create a limited edition of Karl figures, as well as t-shirts and accessories, and for the first time, Karl’s beloved cat Choupette gets her spot in the limelight. The pair also got the tokidoki animation treatment (below), going on an adventure around the world – it’s all just too […]

First Look Inside Chanel’s New Bond Street Flagship

First Look Inside Chanel’s New Bond Street Flagship

This morning I had the immense pleasure of being the very first person to walk through the doors of the impressive newly-opened flagship Chanel maison on Bond Street. 18 months in the making, the boutique is an impressive 12.600 square foot heaven over 3 floors where Chanel lovers (like myself!) can enjoy every aspect of the iconic French fashion house. Chanel 158 New Bond Street was designed by renowned architect Peter Marino – who incidentally is also responsible for the […]

Chanel pops up in St. Tropez

Chanel pops up in St. Tropez

Nothing brightens my day more than a good dose of Chanel in my inbox, so I thought I’d share the joy today and share with you the beautiful images I just received of Chanel’s Summer pop up in St. Tropez. Based by the pool at La Mistralée hotel, the temporary store will play host to the brand’s SS13 Ready-To-Wear and Accessories collections, as well as the Paris-Edimbourgh Métiers D’Art collection. Beam me up, Scotty, I’m off to St. Tropez! (Oh […]

Chanel at Covent Garden Mother’s Day Flower Stall

Chanel at Covent Garden Mother’s Day Flower Stall

If Chanel did flowers, they’d be the best flowers in the world. I’m so happy to announce that Chanel at Covent Garden is now no longer a pop-up, but a permanent boutique, the first of its kind for Chanel! To celebrate, the shop has undergone yet another make-over, this time to coincide with Mother’s Day next weekend. In front of the boutique, there will be a flower stall, which features some of the flowers that play an integral part of […]

Tilda Swinton to front Chanel’s Métiers d’Art Campaign

Tilda Swinton to front Chanel’s Métiers d’Art Campaign

Chanel have just released the first preview of the campaign to accompany the launch of this year’s Métiers d’Art collection. Shown in a remote castle near Edinburgh back in December (I was there, you can read my stories about that incredible show here and here), the collection was inspired by all things Scottish – both its history and its incredible craftsmanship. The images will (as always) be shot by Karl Lagerfeld himself and will feature actress Tilda Swinton.  “Tilda perfectly […]

Chanel SS13 Ad Campaign

Chanel SS13 Ad Campaign

I absolutely adore Chanel’s new SS13 campaign, entitled “Lesson of Elegance”.  The campaign was shot as per usual by Karl Lagerfeld and features Stella Tennant teaching model-of-the-moment (and Belgian!), 17 year old Yumi Lambert and Ondria Hardin some lessons in elegance, Chanel style. As much as I love the model images, my favourite has to be the top one… in my dreams, that’s what my bedroom would look like after a night out, covered in discarded Chanel…

Desire Obtain Cherish

Desire Obtain Cherish

A couple of days ago I stumbled across these wonderful Designer Drugs images by LA artist Desire Obtain Cherish. I love when artists take every day objects and transform them into something else, something with meaning, something worth thinking about. Or perhaps it is just what it is – a fun image. Either way, I think they’re great. Wouldn’t it just be great to take a Chanel, Hermès, Louis Vuitton or YSL pill?   All images © Desire Obtain Cherish

My Chanel Métiers d’Art Scarf

My Chanel Métiers d’Art Scarf

There’s nothing quite like that moment of excitement and anticipation right before you open a surprise present, right? Well, when that surprise came in a Chanel box, I did what every normal girl would do and recorded every moment of it whilst Facetiming my mom so she could see it too (that is totally normal, right?). The Box was waiting for me in my Edinburgh hotel room ahead of the Métiers d’Art show, and I had to resist every urge […]

Chanel Métiers D’Art: Paris > Edimbourg

Chanel Métiers D’Art: Paris > Edimbourg

Anyone wanting to host a fashion show in a remote Scottish roofless ruin of a castle on a freezing December day, should be deemed absolutely insane. But when it’sChanel hosting their annual Métiers d’Art show in the beautiful and historic Linlithgow Palace, you hop on a plane, layer up, put your boots on, have a sip of whiskey, sit back and enjoy every minute of what was one of the most amazing experiences of my life. The Métiers d’Art collections […]

Chanel Métiers D’Art at Linlithgow Palace

Chanel Métiers D’Art at Linlithgow Palace

I am so, so, so happy to be able to tell you I will be attending Chanel’s annual Métiers d’Art show, which will be held on Tuesday in the spectacular Linlithgow Palace, outside of Edinburgh. As you all know by now, Chanel holds a very special place in my heart, so you can only imagine my excitement at what’s about to take place in the next couple of days. I’m truly honoured to have been invited and can’t wait to […]
