Chanel’s Soho Shop Reopening

Sounds unreal, but it is true. On September 10th (also known as Fashion’s Night Out ), Chanel will be launching another limited-edition make-up collection in honour of their Soho shop reopening. Chanel`s highly-anticipated Peter Marino-redesigned shop on 139 Spring Street in New York ( +1 212 334 0055) will be the only place to get the so-called “Soho Story Collection” that includes the following gorgeous products:

Soho de Chanel Palette (with the four letters of Soho engraved in the powder)

Quadra Eyeshadow Palette Stupendous (beige, brown, prune and steel)

Rouge Coco Lip Colour Stunning (beige pink)

Glossimer Star (light shimmery pink)

Rouge Allure Stunt (soft mauve)

Nail Colours Strong (blackberry glitter) and Steel (grayish blue glitter)

The new shop has even got its own campaign featuring plus size model Crystal Renn and Lagerfeld’s muse Baptiste Giabiconi.

So, New Yorkeresses, get your hands on those pieces and ship them to your fellow fashionistas around the globe. Thanks!

LoL, Sandra

Chanel Cruise 2011

Chanel Cruise 2011

The wheel of fashion is spinning very fast. During the last days I told you already a lot about the upcoming trends for F/W 2010.  Today we move one step further ahead to spring next year. Yesterday, Karl Lagerfeld presented his Cruise 2011 collection for Chanel in St. Tropez.

Chanel Cruis 2011-2

Great looks inspired by the 70s that are super wearable as shown by the different mostly barefoot models. Natasha Poly opened the show in a beautiful chiffon kaftan, plus-size model Crystal Renn looked absolutely stunning in a bi-color dress and Mick Jagger`s youngest daughter 17-year-old Georgia May was the finale on the back of a motorcycle.

And what did I see on the nails?! A light blue enamel! Let`s keep an eye on that…

The sun was incredible on the harbor of St. Tropez as well as all the Chanel looks and accessories spotted off the catwalk at the famous Sénéquier. See for yourself below what the ladies in the front row were wearing:

Worth watching is also the short movie “Remember Now” by Karl Lagerfeld that was created for the Cruise 2011 collection. I have loved the direction, visual aspect along with the music.
