Painting with Chanel

Being a Chanel show virgin, it's hard to not feel that 'je ne sais quoi' when experiencing said show especially for the first time. As I entered Grand Palais, and try to soak in the ambiance, my initial thought was Karl answering the ultimate question of 'Is Fashion Art?' with his collection as his medium, but it was actually simply his reaction towards the crazed-hyped-over-rated art buzz that saturated our news feeds and minds these days. We were all first greeted by canapes and champagne (as you would at an art gallery event) while surrounded by 75 'made-up' contemporary art pieces all undeniably Chanel-themed. There lied buckets over filling with Chanel chains, a giant No.5 perfume robot, or even just a scaled giant version of the 2.55 of which many rushed to Instagram (I know I did). Though the show consisted of 89 looks, the flow throughout was impeccably ordered. We had spray-painted 2.55s and hand-painted boy bags, of which one model was styled with two of them worn as cross-body bags that I'm seriously taking a liking to. Graffiti backpacks complimented with dangled key chain charms, daubs of primary hued paint strokes, pearl embroidered lego bags, and even a quilted leather portfolio case that comes with Chanel paint brushes (finally, I can paint CHIC), all of which strutted down the runway to Jay-Z's "Picasso Baby". If there's one thing I learnt as a styling tip, is that carrying a cross body mid-sized boy bag, while slinging a side shoulder backpack, and with one free hand grasp onto a lego bag can look ridiculously cool (yes, that's THREE bags in counting within ONE look). #ArtsyFartsy

  21. Its like you read my thoughts! You appear to grasp so much about this, like you wrote the
    e-book in it or something. I believe that you can do with a few percent to power the message home a bit,
    however other than that, that is wonderful blog.
    An excellent read. I'll definitely be back.
