Chanel

Gabrielle Bonheur “Coco” Chanel is perhaps the most well-known fashion designer of all time. Forty years after her death, her namesake fashion house is still one of the world’s most popular luxury brands, boasting legions of devoted fans worldwide, and continues to grow.

And here at LuxResale, it’s safe to say we’re big, big fans of this woman. We certainly count her among our top favorite designers, and we’re sure many of you agree!

Fun Fact: The very popular fragrance, Chanel No. 5, got its name because the number five was Gabrielle Chanel’s lucky number. This also prompted her to premiere the fragrance in 1921 on the fifth day of the fifth month. Side note and bonus fact: Coincidentally, Marilyn Monroe’s favorite scent was Chanel No 5. which led her to become the official face of the fragrance. This is arguably one of the first records of a celebrity endorsement/spokes model.

London Street Style

By Lona

Fashion is an expression of one’s self.  While I was tempted to write a blog on what not to wear at fashion week I realized that it would not be fair to judge based on my personal taste and what I think is beautiful.  So here are some images I took while waiting to get into the runway shows.  You can be the judge on whether you think they have great style or not.

LFW: Day 3&4 continued

In addition to the Burberry show I was able to make it to two other shows.  Mark Fast and Louise Gray.

At Mark Fast the provocative crochets in his spring collection came in all colors.  “We worked with yellow, orange and fuchsia and feathered printed neoprene to compose a tropical exotic surge of color.” Explained the British designer.   One of the models was constantly getting her shoe caught in the long crochet dress and about to fall but she managed to walk the runway despite this difficulty.   I’m guessing there was no practice run 🙂

Louise Gray’s collection was at the Topshop Show Space where many of the attendees were super excited to be there, mingle with each other before the show and show their strong support for this very quirky and exuberant British designer.   Her collection had to be one of the most distinct I have ever seen.  Gray’s signature is her mishmash of color, pattern and texture. “Its how my mother taught me to dress,” she said, “everything matches if you like it.” I think she is extremely creative and original but at the same time I cannot say that I would wear some of the pieces from this collection.  Below are some of the photos I snapped during the shows yesterday.
