Chanel (Metropolitan Museum of Art Publications)

Now this is my type of literature: Chanel (the Metropolitan Museum of Art Publications version). It was just lying around on the desk, and being the Chanel devotee that I am (seriously, remember this?), ofcourse I couldn't resist but take a peek . . . . .

I liked how they showed pictures of old vintage Chanel designs. It just struck me how I would not have guessed that these were designed many decades ago, because I would so totally wear them!

But for most of the part I was not very impressed by the book and the contents itself. They spend pages and pages devoted to writing about Chanel and her designs in the most long winded way possible! I wish they just had short meaningful words underlining and explaining the pictures! But anyway, if you have a chance and u love Chanel (or are really bored) do flick through it and decipher the meaning within.

My style is definitely casual, not couture, but I love the look and feel of your blog, and all of the pictures too! I'm sure my friends who are into high fashion will love this!

Too bad the book's boring. I may still have to buy it for the pictures you featured -- I'm seriously swooning over that beret and dress.

I was thinking of buying it, but it was quite expensive. But those illustrations look so pretty!

Love your Blog! I just started one myself here in New Jersey/New York City USA. And I reviewed a book I just read about Chanel. It was really good and actually suprised at the many trends she was respondsible for!

Great blog! I recently found it via browsing through the links on several other blogs I visit.

I just saw the Met exhibit yesterday, and it was excellent. The dress that is featured on the book cover is breathtaking (blending opulence and elegance perfectly), and so are some other pieces. The tailoring of the pieces is perfect, in addition to being very innovative.
