With the stunning ancient Egyptian temple at NY’s Metropolitan Museum as a backdrop, Chanel’s catwalk took the audience by storm. Karl Lagerfeld presented Chanel’s Egyptian themed collection, featuring glittered tweeds, golden garments and bold jewelry.
Gold, sparkles, animal skin patterns and facial makeup detailed the looks of the models presenting the spectacular collection. The show was an opportunity to highlight craftsmanship and notably the work of embroiderers, goldsmiths, pleaters and milliners.
Coïnciding with a time where the renewal of archeological finds in Egypt is booming, the French luxury brand’s collection is an elegant homage to the style and fashion flair of this once-powerful ancient civilization.

As the dull and dreary days of November begin to fall on us, I thought it would be nice to browse through some divine floral creations to cheer us up.
Here are a few of my favorites.
From the rose covered Sanderson swing chair, wedding planner Preston Bailey’s over the top floral centerpieces and Bureau Betak’s divine Christian Dior runway walled creations to the simple English rose garden, how can you not be inspired by such “blooming” talent.
May the rose be with you.
Anonymous beautiful faces from around the world with amazing style. Their fashion flair is undeniable. It reminds you how strongly we are inspired by them in the world of fashion.
The styles or the looks that we admire on Paris, London, NY or Milan catwalks simply interpret the fashion flair coming from these different parts of the world.
As the expression goes “The devil is in the detail ” and here the details are paramount: tattoos, patterns, paisley, ornaments, beads, feathers, shells, batik, sheepskin lining, silks, painted faces, layered fabric, mix and match, florals, stripes – the list is endless.
A style is so personal, so defining.
Each of their styles is a feast for the eyes.
