Love Affair with Chanel
He is one of the most influential not to say outspoken leaders in the fashion world credited with re-inventing the famous Chanel brand. Karl Lagerfeld has taken one of Coco Chanel’s most iconic garments and immortalized it in a rather idiosyncratic way. Coco Chanel’s little black jacket is versatile, timeless and some would say iconic. And now its revamped in a series of photographs taken by Chanel’s creative director Karl Lagerfeld.
The Fashion designer has persuaded his celebrity friends Yoko Ono, Sarah Jessica Parker and Lilly Allen amonst others to pose in the jacket first created in 1916 for the london runway.

Fendi Fashion show in Great Wall – Beijing
He produces 8 collections every year for Chanel and 4 for Fendi. (2- pre-fall, 2 -fall)
What we know is that is a tremendous amount of work and this is makes him a force to reckon with. He staged the first fashion show ever on the Great wall in Beijing for Fendi. It was an incredible spectacle but you can only imagine the hideous logistical details that would have to go into something like that. He’s been the realm of Chanel now for more than Continue reading “Bitter Wicked Panache !” »

This year sees a definite shift in nails with drugstore and high-end brands bringing out matte enamels.
Why it works: The reason for this is because a lot of bright make-up is au courant; a matte finish on nails prevents the look from going over the top. You can use the matte texture on the entire nail and a shiny polish in the same hue just on the tips, for a reverse French manicure.
Matte nail shades
Liquid lipstick has been around for a while but has been shelved into the gloss category because of it’s in between textures. Today’s products move way ahead with vivid color and soft, long-lasting wear.
Why it works: You can use them because they provide bright color and a variety texture, and unlike traditional matte lipsticks, they feel supremely hydrating.

Trendy and snazzy
Roses are red, Violets are blue and these are a few of my favourite things…..rings a bell? Ofcourse it does 🙂 Accessories, the most happening throught out the fashion globe and they are getting bigger and better as we breathe. Clutches, Shades and Jewellery not in any order have become so close to women, that no outfit is complete without them. Basic clothing with chic accessories can completey re-vamp your look from a girl next door to a fashion diva.
“Accessories are important and are becoming more and more important every day. They can completely change the look of an outfit, and men and women like the idea of having a wardrobe thats versatile. For instance, a trendy pair of sunglasses can complement any outfit” – Giorgio Armani
Cluthches are designed to help women hold their necessities like phone, credit cards and lip gloss for a daytime event or an evening out. From art auctions to birthday bashes, there is no end in spotting women with clutches.They are preferred to be worn on any outfit and can look snazzy when carried in one hand. Some of them have detachable chains or straps so they can be worn on the shoulder.They come in different shapes and sizes. Whether it’s a box shaped or triangular, satin smooth or covered in beads and sequins, these small accessories are available in a various different styles and personalize any outfit by adding the right amount of glam. My picks would be a Botegga Knot and snake skin Chanel. For all the teeny boppers, who are still in school and cant afford the big labels can stick to Vince Camuto or Ivanka Trump for their designs.
