Chanel 2013-2014 Winter-Fall Show sends a Fashion Shoutout that’s Terrestrial

Written by Chaz Nash

Chanel 2013/2014 Winter-Fall Fashion Show held at the palatial Grand Palais – Paris may have been on planet Earth, however, the fashions presented at the fashion show were on the verge of being out of this galaxy!

Karl Lagerfeld reached deep within his creative cachet and went “East Side” of the global couture spectrum to create what may be defined as one of Chanel’s most terrestrial fashions collection to encompass the globe.

Models adorned in an incorporation of Asian inspired and an introspective of Chanel’s global designs walked the circumference of a circular runway displaying superimposed graphics of the continents. And cleverly staged in the center of this phenomenal runway was a ginormous rotating globe that marked over 300 of the brand’s stores as well as its centennial echelon in haute couture.

Blue Coat and Black Textile Coat

Karl Lagerfeld fashion designs spoke mystical Chanel Francais in ooh la la colors of silver, steel, grey, classic black, blue, baby pink and white, all of which were consummated in a varage of textiles tailored in tweed coats and kilts, double-length coats with downward zippers, pleated short skirts and asymmetrical knit skirts with vibrant movements and knit sweaters adorned with elaborate knit linked chains, all of which were meticulously accessorized with black and silver chain pendants and bracelets, exquisite bags, low heeled boots cladded with Chanel signature chains and/or shoes worn with white/black knit, leather or patent leather leggings. Mercy and merci!

Lagerfeld said of the 2013 Fall-Winter Chanel designs, “The main theme of the collection is from black to grey, colors of shadows and very mysterious. I thought for this season we are going to make a proposition in a completely different direction, what is still one hundred percent Chanel.” Indeed, a different direction that is absolutely amazing and establishes a new signature for the Chanel brand.

This amazing collection has a retro edginess that is modern and alluringly extraterrestrial, yet possesses Chanel’s classic jeux de vie (joy of living) fashion flavor. Chanel has certainly made an interplanetary shout out with this collection. In the mean time, we have to sit on edge to anticipate the timepiece collection that will complement this amazing collection!

Michael Kors Double-Wrap Runway Watches are Worth a Double-Take

Michael Kors continues to design a diverse portfolio of watches that appeal to women’s eclectic sense of style and fashion. And Kors’ latest Double-Wrap Runway watch definitely has the ladies doing a double take.

Michael Kors Double-Wrap Runway watches captures attention both on and off the runway with bold gold tone watch cases, shimmering dials and vibrant colored leather straps.

Kors designed the Double-Wrap watches with a round 42 mm golden stainless steel case and bezel. The cases are emphasized by an iridescent golden dial that is accentuated with golden time stops as well as hour/minute and second hands.  The dials are understated but the case diameter allows it to make a huge statement in presentation. The long hour stops makes time very readable along with its sword-like hour/minute hands and a delicate second hand which has been cleverly designed to resemble an arrow tail. It is also water resistant up to 5 ATM.

However, the piece-de-resistance of the Double-Wrap watches is its narrow exotic snake skin embossed leather straps (select models), which can be wrapped around the wrist twice making it not only an elegant timepiece, but also a fashionable bracelet-style accessory. Kors is essentially double wrapping ladies’ wrists in his fashionable ‘Runway Love’.
