Chanel J-12 Chromatic in Titanium Ceramic

Posted in Chanel, Futuristic Gadgets, Jewelry & Accessories with tags , , on June 29, 2011 by Alan + Mei-Mei the pug

The Chanel’s J12 Chromatic moves on from black & white with a high-tech ceramic version in a silver grey tone. Titanium ceramic adds a new dimension to this high-tech material and the result is a highly polished steely look with all the benefits of this lightweight, scratch-resistant super-material.

The handsome J12 that first took the fashion world by storm over ten years ago now in 2011 comes in a sleek new guise: Titanium ceramic. The addition of titanium to the ceramic recipe produces a cloudy-sky grey hue that once polished with diamond powder develops an attractive sheen that catches the light. But unlike its more humble cousin steel, ceramic is warm to the touch, light and scratch proof.

CHANEL Spring 2011 Couture Show – Enchantment of Lights

Posted in Chanel, Fashion, Haute Couture with tags , , , on January 30, 2011 by Alan + Mei-Mei the pug

When it comes to Haute Couture, it means made to order clothing that only the best fabric, craftsmanship & embellishments are used to create these one of the kind garments that only the best designer houses can mastered! and since money is no object to create these garments, designers usually use massive amount of fabrics plus heavy beadings & embroideries on couture dresses. But at CHANEL Spring 2011 show, we’ve seen the “Light” !

This collection is so luminous in its delicacy & sparkle, every pieces looks like a spring garden fairy outfit! But don’t let the meaning of “Light” fools you & think they all must be just simple chiffon or cotton garments without the extravagance of Couture touches! 10 million beads & sequins were used in this collection! (Clutch my pearls! I just LOVE sparkles!) The opening first couple looks has this “Morning dew on spider webs” kind of delicate bead works on the shoulder, side of the dress…. it was just heavenly! Also all the models were wearing ballet flat shoes, with the chiffon flowing & big airy skirts, it almost has a ballerina feels throughout the collection. At the end of the show, when the curtain on the end of the runway lift up, all the models were standing on top of the stpes of a simulacrum of the iconic Rue Cambon Salon, just like how Madame CHANEL presented her show back in the days. It was a beautiful show, I love it!

Here are some of the best looks from the show

Eskimo Ice Queen & Igloo Chic At Chanel Fall Winter 2010 Collection

Posted in Chanel, Fashion, Handbags & Accessories with tags , , , , , , , , , , on March 21, 2010 by Alan + Mei-Mei the pug

Maybe Karl Lagerfeld had looked into his Swarovski crystal ball and predicted this coming winter is gonna be extremely cold! So he offers up a fabulous collection that features this mystical Eskimo chic girl who lives in the igloo castle located at an extremely cold fantasyland that only the polar bear style coats can keep her warm! Better yet, how Coco Chanel would travel to north pole and how she would dressed!

Karl Lagerfeld had never fail to surprise us season after season with his vision! At the Grand Palais Paris this week, guests arrived with an invitation that has a polar bear sketched on it and once they walked in, there was a huge white box, which sat in the middle of the stage. As the show began, the box was lifted to reveal a huge 256 tons of iceberg imported from northern Sweden.

The collection featured every luxurious materials you can think of that’s almost like a Couture show than the ready to wear! Fur was woven into tweed fabrics for jackets, coats, skirts, also was weaved into luscious cashmere, angora sweaters & dresses. Thank God it was faux fur! I would hate to see some cute little furry animals died just for our vanity, even if it’s for the fabulous CHANEL dresses!

How about the accessories & handbags in the show you might ask? All I can say, it is so “COOL” that I want almost everything! Yes there is even a bag to hold a hot water bottle; you know the red plastic thing filled with hot water to keep you warm?! Talk about keeping it warm in Luxe style! Haha. I especially love the “Ice Cube” themed bags! Cute & clear ice cube decorated the bags with CC logos and there are couple evening clutch that looks like a chunk of ice cube and pave with Swarovski crystals CC logo! Here are some photos of these fabulous bags that is a must-have for this winter!

I am calling my personal shopper at Bergdorf Goodman & Chanel Boutiqes to get me on the wait-list for some of these fabulous items!! To find out more about this collection, please click here to visit CHANEL official website.

Until next time, be well and look fabulous!

Larger Than Life Is Just The Right Size ! – CHANEL Giant Size Carousel Fashion Show

Posted in Chanel, Handbags & Accessories with tags , , , , , on March 13, 2010 by Alan + Mei-Mei the pug

Ok girls! I LOVE everything Chanel! and this is no joke! this is HUGE…. LOL … hmmm i wish i have one like this at home, where i can put all my life in ha ha
Vogue Paris August 2008

A Chanel carousel fitted out with giant quilted bags, camellias, pearls, boaters, and bows faced the audience as it poured into the Grand Palais for the Fall Ready-to-wear show. It was a fitting metaphor for the timeless turning of the house classics, and for the unstoppable machine fashion has become these days.

Lagerfeld didn’t miss a trick, from fragile, frothy, high-necked blouses to spidery knits, peplum jackets, and an intelligent exploration of how longer lengths might be worked into a winter wardrobe.

And what of austerity chic, the subject du jour? Lagerfeld’s witty take was an updated retread of Coco Chanel’s “poverty de luxe,” so that the tweed suits came with worn-through elbows or scatterings of faux-darned patches. Nothing too heavy, of course, because Lagerfeld is not one to take passing fashion issues, even recession, too seriously. But in its relative restraint, reserved color, and holding back on accessory overload, this collection was a smart way to prove that whatever goes around comes around, and ends up looking just as Chanel as ever.

OMG! this Chanel merry-go0round carousel runway stage is my wet dream comes true!!! I can just ride on those over size Chanel goodies on the carousel over and over haha….

Don’t you wish you can have one of this giant Chanel bags in your living room?
