I know this is slightly old news, I haven’t had time to get round to writing about this yet! Sorry guys! Also, apologies for this very suddenly turning into a CHANEL blog! Unfortunately, Chanel happens to be my favourite fashion house, so thats probably why I’m leaning more towards Chanel at the moment….
Anyway, this is by the by…
It has apparently been confirmed that British muscian and fashionista Lily Allen has been picked as the newest face of Chanel by Mr Karl Lagerfeld himself.
Lets be honest, it’s been on the cards for yonks! Lily is always front row at fashion weeks, whether that be Chanel or not, she’ll always be sporting at least one piece of Chanel. She owns dozens of Chanel handbags – and is most often carrying (rather roughly sometimes – which does upset me somewhat) the grey large camera bag.
I have to say I was, and still am, in two minds about this collaboration. I on the one hand, think its great. I actually quite like Lily now – although it was only last year she went a little bit mental and dyed her hair blonde-ish and then pink… and only a year before that when she was wearing the hideous prom dress/trainers combo. BUT how she has bloody well blossomed! Just look at her in the picture above, quite the ‘Chanel Girl‘. It makes me smile.
But still, what would Gabrielle Chanel say? Surely she’d be turning in her grave? Hmm. I’m not so sure. One thing I am sure about is I’m very excited to see the shoot and the campaign. I’m sure she’ll look amazing. She’ll be the face of the leather goods – about right really considering she’s never seen without the aforementioned leather goods in question!
What do you think? Good or bad decision on Mr Lagerfelds part?
Definitely found my next bag purchase… It’s the Navy Jumbo Classic Flap with Gold Hardware. I want this in the Caviar – does anyone know if this is available? Only seen it in the lambskin (as below). Already tired of my grey lambskin. It just does not hold its shape well AT ALL. I also believe that the caviar leather actually looks more expensive than the lambskin too – much better quality! This is absolutely the case when looking at both the black and grey classic flaps I have…..
I’ve seen that the retail price for this one (as above) is around $3,000. Any idea what this would translate to in GBP (£) and of course, in the Caviar leather as opposed to the lambskin?
Theres so many beautiful Chanel pieces I’m desperate to purchase – more blogs to follow this one! I hate having to save! Rubbish!
My two amazing Classic Chanel flap’s sat side by side 🙂
Chanel Classic XL Jumbo Flap in Lambskin (Grey)
Chanel Classic Medium Flap in Caviar Leather (Black)
I absolutely adore them both, using my new grey one lots recently, haven’t had my wee Coco (black) out much of late. I’m keeping her for best:) My grey one is MASSIVE and I get soooo much in it, its brilliant. ALTHOUGH I’m already umming-and-arrrrring over my next Chanel purchase. I think three Chanel Classic flaps is a good number – so thinking about getting just a jumbo version in maybe the beige. I’d like to keep it quite classic for all three, then they won’t date 🙂
I’d have to have this in the gold hardware though!
