Chanel meets India

July 25th, 2012

The Chanel window display change is something Nikki and I always look forward to when it comes around every few months. You can imagine our excitement when we were in Las Vegas a few weeks ago and came across the Paris-Bombay display at the Wynn Hotel.  We fell in love with the Fall 2012 Paris- Bombay fashion show and to see Karl Lagerfeld's genius of marrying the decadence of east and west was an ultimate treat. I was in such awe that it took me about 15 minutes to go into the actual boutique after studying each mannequin! The styling  of the actual windows was stunning as well; The backdrop was antique mirror with facades reminiscent of Jaipur palaces with pink chandeliers and lavish jewels.

Each mannequin had a version of an Indian hair piece such as a Teeka, Matha Patti or Jhumar

Amazing styling with a bold lip

A sari inspired gown with the most luxurious fabric

The jewelry is reminiscent of antique Rajisthan, India

Thigh high lambskin flats almost look like a Choori Dar Pajama

Love the Chanel Pazeb anklets

I absolutely love the styling of these windows and each boutique is different. If you have a chance, check out the boutique nearest you to see a true marrying of fashion cultures. Mr Lagerfeld, I salute you!

Here is the Paris-Bombay Pre-Fall 2012 show in case you missed it http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Mph4iyn-2gQ

Ode to Coco Photo Shoot

July 3rd, 2012

ode to coco photo shoot We've always been obsessed with Chanel and finally decided to pay a proper tribute to the design legend. The "Ode to Coco" photo shoot at Revelry Event Designers‘ warehouse was an incredible collaboration with RevelryHidden Garden Floral Design and Wildflower Linen. Revelry created a backdrop of hanging glass globes layered over silky grey fabric and hung two of their sparkling silver globe chandeliers with crystals above the table. Then we decorated the tabletop with our brand new handmade silver collection and Hidden Garden Floral Design's lovely florals in soft pinks, lavender and greens. Wildflower Linen dressed the table in custom-designed quilted chair covers that looked like Chanel bags and a rich velvet tablecloth. The Callaway Gable team was there to professionally capture our visual appreciation for one of the best designers in history! Click here to see "Ode to Coco" featured on Junebug Weddings and here to see a behind-the-scenes look at the photo shoot. ode to coco photo shoot ode to coco photo shoot ode to coco photo shoot ode to coco photo shoot ode to coco photo shoot ode to coco photo shoot ode to coco photo shoot ode to coco photo shoot ode to coco photo shoot ode to coco photo shoot ode to coco photo shoot ode to coco photo shoot ode to coco photo shoot

  • #Repost @archdigest - #JacquesArpels was inspired by the clover shapes in architecture inspiring him to design his famous Alhambra collection, which is also our inspiration for one of our upcoming events! #inspirationeverywhere #designinspiration #eventdesign #alhambra #moorisharchitecture #vancleefarpels ・・・
Half a century ago, inspired by the decorative patterns Jacques Arpels observed on his travels, @vancleefarpels launched Alhambra—a clover-shaped gold medallion resembling a Moorish quatrefoil. “As an architectural element, it appears in almost every culture,” says Van Cleef & Arpels’s current president and CEO, Nicolas Bos. “In jewelry, it’s just as adaptable.” Today the French luxury brand remains captivated by the motif, having reimagined it in myriad styles and stones. This past May, to mark the Alhambra collection’s 50th anniversary, Van Cleef launched nine new pieces with a party at the 16th-century El Badi Palace in Marrakech. While celebrating with them, AD found a few more not-to-miss sights in Marrakech, including the  14th-century Islamic college Ben Youssef Madrasa pictured here.
