More Bling for your Bing! new and gently loved fashion props and favorites

Pack your Chute?

Well, according to Net-A-Porter (and I actually went to their London office several years back and met one of their buyers) it IS all about Parachute Silk. Gotta love the fact that in these days of no luggage allowed you can cram an entire ensemble in your pockets for a quick change without looking like you were mailed third class.

Net-a-Porter parachute silk adad:

Chloe is featuring a pretty pink pleated skirt (and indeed, pleats on parachute silk must be akin to MP3 technology for textiles). There’s Matthew Williamson, too…but we won’t expect too much there. Our Matt is fun for a not so cheap thrill but as fashion goes, he went. Whether Karl or the big boys will be turning their designs to the material remains to be seen, but where one goes the others usually tread.

I can’t wait to spend $6K a CC jacket fabricated from $14.00 worth of material and 12 acrylic logo laden buttons (where is my rip cord?). The joys of it all. 1-2-3-JUMP

Chanel Spring ‘11

YYC will be drawing it’s own conclusions about Spring 2011.
That said, based on the web-version see slide #4,
If any man I know shows up in a fantasy tweed jacket, well, he’s lost his credibility:
a) professional
b) sexual.

That’s about it from the deck.

Add a Coke and some Style

yumyum's Lagerfeld Coca-Cola bottle

Chanel Style, that is… part of the campaign for the product: Coca-cola Light in France, M. Lagerfeld designed a bottle fashioned with his silhouette and actually photographed the ad campaign. ooooh la la.

And, truth be told, if you really want to wear CHANEL’s Cruise ‘11 Collection (gasp, it’s h-e-r-e-e-e-e-e) you’re going to need get used to LIVING on this stuff and little else (…well, “coke” and cigarettes are probably FINE……).

Karl Lagerfeld prefers to imbibe his “Coco” -Cola Light in a favourite Lalique ‘goblet’, wearing fingerless gloves ….. …..OHPLEASELETMEWRITEWHATIWANTTORIGHTHERE……..and I think I’m just gonna KEEP my vivid imagery to myself (my lawyer thinks it’s best)……

So, Cheers, Salut, Compei and all that Fizz.
