Chanel Paris-London 2008 Ad Campaign

OK, I know this post comes very late since this ad campaign is for Chanel's Pre-Fall collection -the images have already been out since last December and have been published in June 2008's magazines, (which we know means that they've out for years in fashion years,) but I just noticed the campaign seriously when I was in a Chanel boutique last week and saw the campaign booklet lying around. I saw the costume jewelry and I flipped through the booklet and fell in love with the campaign. It's been a long time since I've been able to honestly say I love an ad campaign but this one is absolutely stunning.

First off, I admit I simply do not know how to appreciate Amy Winehouse's music and I dislike her beehive hairstyle even more. You know how a few designers have been using that beehive hairstyle on their runway shows? Well I hated most of them. But the way the Amy Winehouse inspiration has been used in this campaign has totally changed that messy look into something very elegant and sophisticated. Coco Rocha manages to pull off an elegant, young, sophisticated girly look with a hint of dark edginess. Just look at the images above!

Usually I hate it when the models are randomly holding many bags or wearing way too many accessories in ad images, but this campaign pulls it off seamlessly. It's got a perfect balance of being gorgeously artistic and being commercial. I mean, after looking at it, I don't only think it's seriously captivating, I also really want a bunch of those accessories! This is definitely one of my favourite Karl Lagerfeld-photographed campaign!

I LOVE all the golden silver accessories -like this feather hair accessory and huge neckalce -it's so glamorous in an uncomplicated way.

Bravo to Coco and Karl for pulling off this ad perfectly!

I tried on the boucle ankle length coat at the trunk show and it is lovely. The cutting and how the coat fits the body are typical of Chanel quality. I had a blast at the trunk show. It's like a super try on party.

I would have to agree. It's a really lovely campaign. My favorites are the black dress and the lavender dress. But, I still can't understand the beehive...

So, so, so beautiful... Its hard enough to cope with the want and need for some chanel but with such campaigns the pain is crippling...Aaaahhh!!! One day, hey?! I try and avoid going near a chanel store at ALL costs, i've started to shop online, which has actually been quite successful (apart from asos, poor fabrics... yuck!). Shopgoldyn is amazing, a huge mix of independent designers, and the prices don't break the bank!

Gorgeous. Karl hasn't lost his touch, eh? I especially adore the second to last photo- that girl's flouncy blouse juxtaposes so well against the stark black bg.

My God, these photos are jaw-dropping, so gorgeous!

I love your point about accessories in fashion campaigns--often audacious. What I would like to see more of--call me strange--are artful inclusions of accessories essential to us today, like phones, PDA's, even mp3 players. Which I think would normally be more difficult, but I've taken to seasonally matching my accessories to my wardrobe using Skinit skins for tech gadgets. Completely customizable because you can use your own images (even photos)!

Like it or not Amy Winehouse has had a rather large influence on fashion. I'm not her biggedt fan either, although I like her music not so her persona but like others such as David Bowie, Janis Joplin etc she's made her mark. really enjoyed this post.

she's beautiful! and the ad campaign is really great. unlike Amy Winehouse, her hair does not make me cringe, rather it makes me want to do a beehive hairstyle (though it'd probably never work!).

The men of my Breitling Bentley is that it does not matter if I am in formal dress, lying on the patio, or even swimming in the gym, my Montbrillant Datora does not seem out of place. I finally solved the Chrono Superocean is the Chronomat Evolution, the best-selling Breitling Avenger , and it is not difficult to understand why. This amazing clock was originally designed for the world famous Tricolour Arrows, created by the team Italian Air Force display.


Don't be conned by the inexpensive Christian Louboutin Sale because their quality is significantly inferior compared to the genuine designer shoes made from real leather. The most stupid mistake manufactured by these low quality Christian Louboutin Pumps manufacturers is that they paint the complete sole of the shoe in bright red color. However in exact original designer Christian Louboutin Boots , the only is always black from the edges. Their manufacturing dept makes sure not to over look such minute details as the online store makes a plea to be the best in manufacturing Christian Louboutin Sandals .


A little over 50 years ago, when Coach Wallets was first getting started, Coach Poppy released 12 classic and simple handbags. Over the years, as technology got batter, fashion and the world changed, they have introduced a multitude of much more extravagant handbags, in new shapes, colors and materials. Coach Luggage is the epitome of the America culture, with its high-end fashion. Coach Madison , whether leather or other materials, is made with the perfect balance of functionality and aesthetics.
