Chanel is one of the most well known fashion houses of our time. The brand has always been known for their conservative, classy, and chic clothing. The company has always designed clothing for the elegant woman. Not only does Chanel create high fashion clothing, but they have their own line of beauty products and fashion accessories. Whenever I think Chanel I think of the “little black dress” or their famous perfumes.
Chanel recently released a short film displaying their current fall and winter collection. The video stars models Cara Delevingne, Lindsey Wixon, Sasha Luss, Soo Joo Park, and many other beautiful faces who are modelling clothing most of us can’t afford.
In typical Chanel fashion the models look like very polished and refined french women. Each model has some sort of dark smoky look. The clothing is very detailed with intricate designs. Most outfits consist of long sleeves and pencil skirts. The music is rather peppy for how serious the models are acting in the video. Not all of the outfits are typical fall colours, but it’s Chanel they make the rules on what colours are in style. Some of the outfits include colours like gold, silver, white, and even pink.
The clothing is quite gorgeous. However, it’s just too fancy to wear everyday. I know that it’s high fashion and Chanel has a standard to uphold, but just because you’re wearing Chanel doesn’t mean it’s going to look good on you like it does on the models. The brand is geared to older women so maybe when I’m older I could rock it. The clothing just doesn’t have a youthful feel and I think that’s because women in there twenties, probably can’t afford their clothing.
I’ll always be a fan of Chanel, but I think I’m going to stick to trying to save up for a Chanel lipstick and their new perfume.
