By Lauren Alexis Fisher Mar 6, 2018Getty ImagesFrom airports to space stations, grocery stores and beyond, Chanel has taken its runways far and wide over the years. For its Fall 2018 show today, the fashion house got in touch with nature with a dark and moody forest-themed runway. Transforming the Grand Palais into the woods, … Continue reading 🛎 Harper’s BAZAAR: Chanel Sent Models Through A Forest For Its Fall 2018 Show Into the woods with Chanel.
Gabrielle “Coco” Chanel, an orphan who could not afford the luxurious corsets of her time during her younger years, was ultimately responsible for crafting a sportier and more comfortable look for women. By the 1920s, Chanel built a brand that changed the face of women’s clothing, while successfully making her line a symbol of women’s liberation.
However, it does not end there.
In 1932, during the worst years of the depression, the diamond business came to a dramatic pause. This financial gap left an opening for new and innovative ways to influence buyers. The male dominated field invited Chanel to create a line to boost sales.
And so it began that Chanel revamped the way diamond jewelry is both designed and given. While diamonds are still offered as a token of love or affection, Chanel’s diamond designs added a reason for women to purchase for themselves, and they became extravagant…

Chanel has released a giant bottle of its classic Chanel N°5 fragrance, 30-ounces, and it is calling it the “Grand Extrait” which costs a whopping $4,200. 30 ounces is one giant amount of Chanel, so much perfume in fact that beauty experts don’t even think it is possible for a single person to use it before the smell fades from the perfume (which takes a couple of years).
Here is the Wall Street Journal’s take: “This is not really for using. This is a showpiece. This is a $4,200 thing to put on your mantle, or your dresser—or wherever you want to put it—that says, I got a lot of Chanel.”
Hey, there is absolutely nothing wrong with a lot of Chanel.

Chanel has been known to stage its Cruise collection runway shows in lavish locations (including among other locales St.Tropez and Venice), and this season was no exception. The festivities took place in Singapore at the Raffles Hotel and then in former British army barracks at Dempsey Hill, and were attended by a mix of notable guests, and of course Chanel Creative Director Karl Lagerfeld. We’ve broken down everything you need to know.
100 Guests. This was one of the more exclusive runway shows that Chanel has put on in a while. There were only 100 guests in attendance, and quite a few serious Chanel customers among them. Dakota Fanning was the big A-lister front row.
100 Year Anniversary. It has been 100 years since the opening of the first Chanel boutique in Deauville, France, and this event was partly in celebration of that.

Remember last Paris Fashion Week when “Twilight” star Kristen Stewart sat front row at the Chanel show, draped in Coco-branded pearls and chains, and even rubbing shoulders as if best friends with the brand’s creative director, Karl Lagerfeld? Now it all makes sense: the starlet has been dubbed the official face of the brand’s Metiers d’Art collection, which showed its Pre-Fall 2014 collection last night in Dallas.
Stewart was on-hand for the festivities, which took place at the Texas city’s Fair Park, redecorated in the style of a good old-fashion rodeo barn. In classic K. Stew form, the star wore her hair swept to one side, a cropped sweatshirt with another tied around her waist, and generally didn’t show much excitement at her new role.
The Metiers d’Art collection is the Pre-Fall line Lagerfeld puts out every year about this…

The campaign, which was released today via the French label’s Twitter and Facebook profiles, stars models Ashleigh Good, Chiharu Okunugi, and Soo Joo Park in what we assume is a futuristic fashion space station, where they float around in looks from the Fall/Winter 2013 campaign and spend their time knitting and posing.
A highlight of the image is that boot. Two of the three models wear thigh-high latex boots with studs lining the soles; we’d be lying if we said that’s not a dream shoe in a nutshell. Whose scarf do we have to knit to…
