chanel summer


When I see that Chanel ad and makeup video I just want to put a flower in my hair and feel the sun on my face, but Antwerp is offering nothing but clouds these days. Well, yesterday we had a bit of sun and it felt so wonderful to sit out on the balcony and read. As some of you probably remember I've been reading a biography of Coco Chanel so the two Cs have been on my mind. I was looking at old Chanel ads and campaigns when I found this video, a short interview with Peter Philips, the creative director of Chanel makeup. Antwerp is his hometown and he talks a little bit about his background. He also gives a peak into Coco's apartment at 31 Rue Cambon, which has been kept exactly as it was on the day she passed away, 10th January 1971.

I hope you are enjoying a sunny Monday!

  1. Gorgeous campaign photo and that movie only makes me want to paint my nails and experiment with eye-shadows;) Instead of enjoying the sun that doesn't show I'm burning my peony candle, listening to Ray Lamontagne, drinking tea and typing some long mails in a few minutes;)

  2. I love this photo! I read the Secret of Chanel No. 5, which had a lot in it about Coco Chanel's life. I thought it was so interesting! I'll have to check out her biography that you're reading.
