A celebration of Chanel s iconic style What more, the label current artistic director Karl Lagerfeld has directed a ten minute silent movie about the young Coco. The films, no doubt, will focus on her private life, which was rather more colourful than the pared down palette she renowned for. But Coco has had more influence on what we wear than any other designer we have her to thank for many of the fashion essentials that we take for granted. Here we celebrates her top ten brilliant innovations 1 The quilted bag We have Coco Chanel to thank for the bag that changed the face of handbag fashion. Pre nike free 3 Chanel, women held clutches, or dorothy bags that slipped around the wrist. Coco wanted a bag that was hands free so that she could get on with life. Inspired by the wide strapped pouches carried by soldiers, Coco designed her first shoulder bag in 1929; the updated Chanel 2.55 bag (right, named after the date of its creation in February 1955) took its quilted cue from jockeys jackets. It has three compartments one designed to hold just a lipstick. Tweed jackets from the Chanel autumn/winter 2008 collection 2 nike free online The tweed jacketBoxy but never frumpy, luxurious and made to transcend fashion, the Chanel jacket is true dressing (think 2,000 and up). Created even before the 1920s began to roar, Chanel jackets were inspired by men cardigans, liberating women from tight corsets. Chanel jacket is made for a woman who moves, Coco said. But in 1954 Coco reinvented her signature jacket using her favourite tweed. And though the buttons may change from season to season and jacket to jacket sometimes brass, sometimes jet, sometimes diamant a Chanel jacket is always lined in silk, subtly woven with the CC logo. No 5 eau de parfum, 43 for 50ml 3 The No 5 bottle This is the most famous fragrance flacon ever designed (not to mention the iconic perfume it holds) and the only scent bottle to appear in the permanent collection of New York Museum of Modern Art. Coco insisted, will put everything into the perfume and nothing into the presentation. nike air max tailwind Until No 5, fragrance bottles had been fussy, feminine affairs. Coco rebelled, opting for minimalism: she took her inspiration for the bevelled edge stopper from the shape of the mirrors in her Rue Cambon apartment. And fragrance bottle design entered a new age. Coco in her trademark pearls in 1935; NECKLACE, from 1,500 4 Fake pearls Between 1926 and 1931 coinciding with her great love affair with the Duke of Westminster Coco outraged London by piling on rope upon rope of pearls with daywear, something that no English society lady would have dared do, except with a ballgown. And not only did she mix the real thing with fakes, she thumbed her nose at her jewellery rivals and charged the same price, if not more, for imitation gems than they did for the real thing. Who cared if the pearls were fake, she laughed, if it was a real Chanel design? 5 Chains Ironically, for someone so obsessed with feminine freedom, Coco was fascinated by chains. When a male nike free 3.0 v2 friend visited her shop on a gift quest, Coco told him: know women. Women adore chains. She was inspired by the women who cared for her as a child at the Aubazine orphanage who wore floor length skirts lifted with chains to keep the hems clean. Coco adopted these chains for necklaces, bracelets, belts and bag straps. You also find them on the inside edge of the hems of Chanel jackets to ensure that they hang perfectly. In 1913, long before Lycra, nike free run 5.0 v4 Chanel freed women from corsetry and rustling petticoats, inviting them to let their bodies move. Eyebrow raisingly, Coco dared to take tricot a fluid, knitted fabric hitherto only used for underwear and reinvented it for the outdoorsy life she loved. Following the invention of jersey, a drapeable textile innovation from the French company Rodier, Chanel collections always featured soft cardigans, jumpers and sailor tops that were updated every season. Easy dressing for easy living that we take for granted today. 7 Ballerina pumps The ballet shoe inspired flattie (that could be pulled tighter with a thread, just like a dancer was another part of Coco crusade to liberate women in this case, empowering us to stride, rather than teeter, along the pavements first of Paris, then the world. Today, imitation seems to be the sincerest form of flat shoe ery, as ballerina pumps are everywhere. But those in the know can spot the real thing at a distance: it features a mixture of patent and matt leather, with somewhere the handstitched CC logo. And the pumps are as easy to wear as slippers because, in the words of Coco, must be comfortable, otherwise it is not luxury. 8 Lipstick Whatever Coco Chanel introduced, the whole of Paris and soon the rest of the world wanted.

A Certain Style As a designer, Coco Chanel gave us fashion, beautiful bits of ephemera that were the rage for a season or two before we moved on to her next creations. Beyond fleeting fashions, the iconic Chanel gave us style, the timeless silhouettes and materials that have outlasted the vagaries of fashion. Fashion gave Coco Chanel her start, but style has made the House of Chanel a coveted brand long after its storefront beginnings. Born Gabrielle Bonheur Chanel in Saumur, France, on August 19, 1883, Chanel acquired her nickname as a young woman, when she performed as a cabaret singer. Though many said the name came from one of the songs she sang, Chanel herself said it was a shortened version of coquette, the French word for woman. It wasn the only way Chanel worked to create her own legend. She claimed to have been born in 1893, to have been raised by cold hearted spinster aunts (instead of by her parents until age 12 free nike and then in an orphanage upon her mother death), and to have been born in Auvergne rather than Saumur. Perhaps she thought the conflicting stories created an alluring sense of mystery, but Coco Chanel didn need mystery to build her fame. She had style, and that was more than enough. The House of Chanel was born when she began making hats as a hobby in her twenties. She opened a small boutique, Chanel Modes, in Paris in 1910. Her eye for style soon brought her recognition, as trendsetting actress Gabrielle Dorziat began wearing Chanel hats. The business blossomed and she was able to expand beyond hats. Coco Chanel next project was the creation of a line of luxury casual wear. Although her hats were popular, Chanel wasn yet a rich woman, and her unique early clothing design style was a result of thriftiness. Jersey, a stretchy knit fabric, was then most commonly used for men underwear. But it had nike air max 180 an elegant drape and its comfortable feel was perfect for Chanel line of sportswear was its low price. The casual knits in Chanel boutiques were new and exciting for a generation of young women raised in corsets but eager to live active lives. Coco Chanel herself was the epitome of what these women strove to be: independent, dynamic, slim and sporty. Her cropped hair and boyish figure became the ideal for many young women, and the straight lines and boxy silhouettes of her designs nike air max 2010 were tailor made for that figure. Her own taste in color was also a key element in Chanel fashion design: in her home and her dress, Chanel looked toward classic blacks, whites and beiges. Those colors were the cornerstone of the House of Chanel particularly the black dress, a wardrobe staple made famous by Coco Chanel. Chanel boutiques began to flourish in the 1910s, and by the 1920s she was wildly successful, with clients all over the world and young women everywhere wearing her designs. Even those who couldn afford the couture of the House of Chanel embraced the look clean lines, cropped skirts, few curves. Their mothers may have clung to their corsets, but girls loved Chanel comfortable, natural look. As the House of Chanel reached new heights, it released another iconic product: Chanel No. 5. Debuting in 1921, the perfume has become a symbol of classy sensuality. And around the same time as the perfume came the logo the interlocked Cs recognizable worldwide. The House of Chanel maintained its popularity through the 1920s and But when World War II descended on Europe, Coco Chanel closed her boutiques. She said that wartime wasn a time for fashion, and her connections with the Nazi party (primarily through an affair with a German officer) didn win her friends in France. However, she rebounded after the war her comeback was spurred by her distaste for the new fashions of the late 1940s and early 1950s. The Look of Christian Dior was all the rage, romantic and ultra feminine with tiny waists, full skirts, and rounded shoulders. It was quite the opposite of Chanel straight and boxy staples. Coco Chanel hated it. This era also saw the introduction of the Chanel handbag quilted leather with a gold chain and the Chanel logo featured prominently. An enduring nike air max classic classic, the handbag basic look hasn changed substantially over the years, and it still a status symbol today. Indeed, even though Coco Chanel died on January 10, 1971, the House of Chanel remains vital, popular and classic forty years later. Other designers have succeeded her, with Karl Lagerfeld currently at the helm. Still at the forefront are the features on which Coco Chanel built her style clean lines, classic colors, casual elegance. nike air max infrared And those gorgeous handbags.

A Challenging Sew the inside was already quilted and it was ready to put together, so I thought it would be a easy finish. but it turns out that this air max red needed to be a tailored jacket and not a quilted one and honestly am pretty cross with myself for not spotting that when I decided mens nike free run to use it. Without reinforced center fronts and added facings, the jacket cannot support the weight of the collar or hang correctly, the fronts just nike free 7.0 v2 buckle and fold. So I ended up removing all the center front quilting and replacing it with padstitching which was a lot more work but so worth doing. I think next time I would have the outside collar sewn to the jacket, then I would padstitch the front and collar, using stay tape to mark the break once I fitted it on me. overall, this is a pattern I would highly recommed, but with the caveat that its far from a quick sew. Its a very flattering shape and the design makes it really comfortable to wear. Aside from the 2014/15 which has been my bedtime reading all week (so happy!) also sent me the impossible to find , very sold out 2009 and its amazing. a catalog collector like me, this is huge! If I am honest, I always feel that I benefit much more from the relationship then they do, my sewing skills improve with each pattern, I have something to write about each week or bad they don seem to mind!) and they let me host sew alongs with their blessing , so it was a very lovely and unexpected gift and I find myself grateful again for their nike air max 90 kindness. Everyone. meet Dagmar. She says this is a wearable muslin ?! its beautiful. the fabric is a gorgeous hammered silk and there is also a matching skirt planned nike air max plus with the remnants, can wait to see that!
