All That Glitters...

Mentioning this collection the other day in a post reminded me that my passion for it is still going strong. I'm not sure another Chanel collection has resonated so strongly since. It is particularily odd because I am not such a huge fan of dresses over jeans (or jeans in general), however these light-washed, bedazzled and made with matching arm warmers are powerfully alluring. The futuristic hair pieces are the icing on the cake. Pictures from Style.com

love the last pictures with hair jewels

Kvestelser said...

Great inspiration! Yes, I actually like it! I think that is because it is original, the denim is also covering their arms, and it makes the whole look much, much more interesting and all!

I gave you an award, you will find it at my blog :)

I'm not really a fan of it but if it's not too much it can look quite glamorous.

i love the hair pieces so stylish.

lisa said...

Beautiful! I never thought denim arm warmers could look so elegant.

Amelia said...

I really like this collection. It's a lot younger looking than most from Chanel. The top right dress is gorgeous.

Miss Woo said...

There is always something interesting about Chanel even if I don't dig the overall collection. I love those hair decorations.

OMGG that 3rd picture!! The gems and jewels are STUNNING!

Divinity Avenue said...

I too was put off by this collection due to the odd addition of jeans, however if I look at the pieces sans jeans, they are all quite stunning. My favorite here is the black and gold dress on the top right. What a stunning dress.

dianasof said...

Yeah, the jeans are a bit distracting. But the dresses are beautiful and the color palette is just so elegant and interesting.

Olviya said...

well, i like those mix of denim (gorgeous color!!) and very feminine dresses. looks so fresh

Hot Bot said...

Great picks :)

I'm like a magpie. I equate shiny things and bling with good times. I've found that Chanel is becoming more and more lavish and intense with their styling and details. Their pre-fall was just intense!

Tahda said...

oh...this is brilliant. I forgot all about it. thanks

Winnie said...

Love the jewels and the jeans and dress combo definitely work in these photos.

Cris Lazoru said...

That hair looks amazing, love it.

Miss Victory said...

Yeah, dresses over jeans has got to be done right! I can see why you think this collection a wee bit special.

Sheryl Wong said...

The denim arm warmers are cool. I just love the first 2 pictures.

enc said...

I see what you mean about this collection! I'd never normally be attracted to those jeans, but here, they're great. I love the last model's hair.

Meg said...

I love the hair in that show!

Anna Pope said...

I think this is one of my favorite Chanel collections up to now.

Songy said...

Never had Chanel in my covettable list but now it is with all these.

Trouble.

HEK said...
