HS Chanel Pre Fall13 cover Chanel Pre Fall 2013 Show At Linlithgow Palace Scotland
The unreal and impressive venue called Linlithgow Palace in Scotland was the setting of an at least as impressive Pre-Fall 2013 collection presentation set up by Karl Lagerfeld for Chanel. The story behind the choice for the castle is simple but brilliant: The collection features iconic Scottish styles like the kilt, coats with swagger and skirts in black crepe de chine. Combined with the tragic but very romantic history of Mary, Queen of Scots, who was born exact 700 years ago, the base for an unforgettable showcase was given.

Chanel Miniature Hula Hoop 1 Mini Version of Chanel Hula Hoop Bag For Retail

While most of us were doubting that the huge Hula Hoop bag, that was shown on the Chanel runway this year, will ever be put in production, Mister Karl Lagerfeld certainly was already about to cook up a plan how to make the bag capable for commerce. I never underestimated Karl’s sense of humor behind the creation , which by the way captured more media attention than any other item from this years fashion week, but when I saw this miniature version of the Hula Hoop bag I was indeed somehow surprised. The 24 centimeter mini version will be available for purchase in all Chanel shops starting Spring 2013.

Chanel Spring/Summer 2013 Lego Handbag

Chanel Lego 1 Chanel Spring/Summer 2013 Lego Handbag

Karl Lagerfeld presented this cute selection of Lego handbags for   Spring/Summer 2013. After Paris Fashion Week the hype around the hula-hoop bag was so big that we almost forgot to present this little treasure. It seems as if Karl had fun creating this collection, and took inspiration from his (or even everyones’s) childhood. We still don’t know if the Lego bag will ever get in stores, but I really like the idea of playing with plastic and the Chanel-typical chains.

Would you like to own one?

A few days ago we gave you the news of Brad Pitt being chosen by Chanel to star in its new campaign for the iconic Chanel No.5 fragrance. After some initial video teasers with Brad asking questions like, “What’s the mystery?” and “Do you feel lucky?” the official ad campaign was released today and we indeed feel pretty lucky that Brad was chosen to be the first male face for a women’s fragrance in Chanel No.5’s 91-year history.
