Animated Chanel Film On Nowness

25 January 2011, 23.24 | Posted in Design, Fashion | 2 comments »

Via Nowness: A jet-propelled robot, a beaming sun god and an impish spider are not the likeliest of characters to embody the ultra-luxurious world of Chanel, but Peter Philips, the innovative mind behind them, has made his name pursuing the unexpected. Chanel’s Global Creative Director of Makeup took a break from conceptualizing cosmetic gold to don the animator’s cap for today’s short, a work inspired by a series of headdresses he crafted from beauty product packaging for a Vogue Paris shoot. Built from a trove of compacts, glosses, brushes and more, Philips’s characters embark on a journey that begins with a lipstick-powered automaton blasting through the clouds and ends on more familiar ground, with a model whose chic ensemble channels Mme Chanel herself. Philips came to the task with the requisite technical skills, having studied graphic design before attending Antwerp’s Académie Royale des Beaux-Arts. But he did concede on one creative point—the music. “If it were up to me it would have been disco,” he confesses.

ChanelAdSpr2011 Chanel Water Sports Ad Spring/Summer 2011

Spotted the latest Chanel ad artwork over at Mayzingmerique….no it’s not called “Water Works,” but gosh, that activity certainly springs easily to mind when gazing upon this image! Karl Lagerfeld shot it, but was Dov Charney a consultant by any chance??

A couple of stylists and a photographer combined their love of fashion and cupcakes to create some sweet treats, designed to mimic designer brands Chanel, Louboutin, Louis Vuitton, Agent Provocateur and Betsy Johnson. Interesting to note the color and iconography they used for each brand. Via Stylefrizz.

Chanel Pre-Autumn 2011 Lookbook

chanel23 Chanel Pre Autumn 2011 Lookbook

Similar to the Greek God theme of his Pirelli-calendar shoot, Chanel designer Karl Lagerfeld is still feeling the allure of ancient influences with his pre-Autumn collection. And while the usual lux detailing and stitching–this time with an emphasis on gold–that make Chanel stand out from the pack are all present and accounted for, it’s quite a dark collection, especially when one considers it delivers in June. Though this appears to be the mood of designers these days–be a little more serious and get back to basics by focusing on your core customer. And if you think about who really puts down the plastic for Chanel clothes, the collection makes total sense. Over 60 more looks after the flip. Via WWD.

ChanelShadesSB Chanel Shoes & Accessories Autumn 2010

Stylebubble got to visit a Chanel showroom, where she got up close and personal with the Autumn 2010 collection (jealous much am I??). Yes, THAT collection, the furry, controversial one, which would have been soooo much more on point if Karl had used a better quality fur than the cheap-o Halloween custume stuff he opted for. Anyway, some of the items are great, like these shades here–note the plushier fur, while others, meh, not so much. The iced-out clutch is weird–its looks like it belongs to a person whose dog sheds a lot, but the clog boots…be still my beating heart. More images on the next page.

Chanel Coco Cocoon Bags

Chanel15 Chanel Coco Cocoon Bags

Chanel previewed the latest Coco Cocoon bag collection early in May and now the entire collection is being shown online. Many of the bags–with the notable exception of the sheepskin one featured here, along with a few others–are updated versions of styles from a collection that first launched in 2009 with Lily Allen acting as the spokesperson. Time moves on and now Vanessa Paradis is the face of the label. She’s not nearly as fun as Lily, but these days are more serious ones so perhaps the choice was prescient.

Tons more styles after the flip.
