Once upon a time there was the most desirable woman of the 20th century… Marilyn Monroe – the icon with a fresh sensuality – was the very essence of femininity.

When she adopted CHANEL N°5, did she know what Mademoiselle Chanel had said of the bold fragrance back in 1921 : “I want a woman’s fragrance that smells like a woman” ?

Back then, the legend that this free and passionate woman wore nothing to bed but a few drops of CHANEL N°5 rocked the world. Her candid declaration of love for the quintessential feminine fragrance was there in black and white, in an article published on August 7, 1952 that accompanied her first cover of Life Magazine : “Marilyn, what do you wear to bed ? So I said I only wear CHANEL N°5.”

CHANEL 2014 Spring Summer Ready-To-Wear Collection

Beneath the glass dome of the Grand Palais, models coiffed with “bangs with wings” walked lightly through the art gallery where Karl Lagerfeld had invited his guests to an unexpected vernissage that provided the backdrop to the presentation of CHANEL’s 2014 Spring-Summer Ready-to-Wear collection.

Drawing inspiration from the art world, Karl Lagerfeld appropriated painter’s palettes and materials to create a common ground between art and fashion.

“The prints are like brush strokes,” he explained, “There are more than 150 colours.”

Boy Chanel Autumn-Winter 2013/14

The Boy CHANEL bag has become a recognizable House creation and its status as such, is set to last.


For the CHANEL 2013-14 Fall-Winter collection Karl Lagerfeld has reinterpreted its design with a resolutely modern and supple version.Quilted or smooth, the flap is animated by a graphic contrasting effect with an overstitched or quilted braiding.


Forever faithful to its codes, the chain strap and the Boy lock. In addition to the smooth or patent calfskin and the exotic alligator and python skins, it also exists in two aged goatskins, one iridescent and the other with graduated shading. Another variation has a smooth leather or tweed flap and comes with four different sized link chains, emphasising the Boy CHANEL’s definitive rock’n’roll allure.


Available in CHANEL boutiques from September 2013.

Private Screening of Once Upon a Time… by Karl Lagerfeld

Private Screening of Once Upon a Time… by Karl Lagerfeld

On May 8th 2013, the evening before the Cruise Collection show which will take place at Loewen Cluster on the Dempsey hill, Karl Lagerfeld unveiled his two new short films Women Only and Once Upon a Time… during a private screening at the Raffles Hotel in Singapore.

The Palm Court, a charming interior courtyard at this legendary hotel, was chosen as the theatrical backdrop for the screening. Within this verdant showcase, where Charlie Chaplin and Somerset Maugham once wrote beneath the shade of the palm trees,   the guests were invited to enjoy a preview of these two short films, followed by a tropical interlude during the cocktail party.

CHANEL 2013 – 2014 Cruise collection

Following, Venice, Saint-Tropez, Cap d’Antibes and the Bosquet des trois fontaines in Versailles, Karl Lagerfeld presented the CHANEL 2013/14 Cruise collection in Dempsey Hill, Singapore. With its eternal summer, tropical vegetation and exotic trips and  journeys, Singapore is the ideal platform for this spring ritual.

Disused buildings were redesigned with an air of the tropics with long galleries below the roofs, black and white blinds and refreshing whitewashed walls. As night fell Karl Lagerfeld took guests on a journey through time with his collection that mixes Mademoiselle Chanel in Deauville in 1913 with a colonial style.

Eyes Wide Shut

The beauty of a woman is in her eyes. ‘Eyes speak of her feminity and charm and they reveal her inner beauty’, says the House of Chanel. Sublimage La Creme Yeux, the new interpretation of Sublimage eye cream is a feather light formula that melts onto delicate skin, not only fighting  early signs of ageing but also tackling dark circles and puffiness. Enriched in the active fruit and flower of Vanilla Planifolia, the crème plumps and contours the eye area leaving it glowing, toned and firmer. Bright and luminous, the result is striking, stand-out eyes.

The Little Black Jacket

New York set the scene last week for the launch of Karl Lagerfeld and long-time French Vogue editor Carine Roitfeld’s latest collaborative project, “The Little Black Jacket: Chanel’s Classic Revisited”. The project, a photography exhibition and much awaited coffee table book showcases black-and-white photographs, shot by Karl Lagerfeld himself that pay homage to the iconic clothing piece.
More than a hundred celebrities, actors, artists, singers, and rock stars, each with their own individual flair, are shot wearing a black, tweed Chanel Jacket, to a surprisingly varied effect. “It’s play time with an item that is timeless” according to Lagerfeld. “The Chanel jacket has become the symbol of certain elegance, feminine, with an air of nonchalance, classic and timeless, that is of all times”. The proof is in the photographs; Chanel’s Little Black Jacket remains to be a dynamic staple that can be worn by anyone, anyway.

The book is scheduled for release this spring.

Chanel Cruise Collection 2012/12

In a way that only he can, Karl Largerfeld unveiled the playful and opulent Chanel 2012/13 Summer Ready-To-Wear range this month in Paris. With the Chateau de Versille’s legendary garden fountains as the centrepiece, a charming scene was set, perfect for the 18th Century inspired frivolity that took place.
Favouring the pastel and floral trend, Lagerfeld was able to strike a balance between playful, costume like design and 21st century sensibility. Models sported pastel; bob-top bespoke wigs to set off the floral sleeved frocks, gold embroidered denim vests and rich brocade-infused one-piece swimsuits in a futuristic Marie Antoinette style.

“It is Coco rock, French rock with a very 18th century frivolity, one that’s been updated with new materials and new proportions,” Karl Largerfeld explained.
