One of the designer brands that I have always loved since I was a little girl is Chanel. I love the C’s logo, the classic quilted bags and the tweed suits. Theres something that is so traditional and classic about the brand and I love that it always stays true to its roots. Each season the collection developes modern trends whilst still encompassing that essential Chanel flavour. It is my aim in life to own a classic quilted Chanel bag, to me that is the height of sophistication.
Don’t you just think they are just divine darling? Unfortunately they cost on average about £2000 so I won’t be wearing one of these on my arm any time soon, but a girl can dream.
The classic black and white Chanel trademark is iconic and I love that it represents the design house whether it is – on Chanel shoes, a bag, Karl Lagerfeld – who mainly wears just black & white or the Chanel store in Paris. It embodies the charm and sophistication of the brand:
The history of the Designer Couture house lives on from Coco Chanel through Karl Lagerfeld who embodies the image of Chanel and continues to make a success of the brand. I personally love the Chanel tweed short suits which to me are the modern version of the classic Chanel suit.
Chanel understands what a woman wants and this is often represented through their advertising which eminate style, glamour, sophistication and quite often romance.
Often using actresses and well known models, girls aspire to be like the glamourous women in the adverts.
Here is Gossip Girl actress and style icon du jour Blake Lively, the new face of Chanel bags. More than these images Chanel also produces amazing television adverts made as short films which entice the viewer into the world of Chanel. My favourite adverts are: The Chanel no.5 fragrance ad with Nicole Kidman and directed by Baz Luhrman:
I also love the Chanel Coco Mademoiselle Keira Knightley advert:
As well as appealing to the masses Chanel is a firm favourite of the stars:
Clemence Poesy Lily Cooper (nee Allen) Alexa Chung
Nicole Ritchie Vanesa Paradis Diane Kruger
Personally I love everything that Chanel produces whether it is clothes, accessories or perfume, Chanel can do no wrong. It all embodies the key style of the brand and lets the history of this amazing design house live on. Hope you enjoyed my love of Chanel. XOXO.
