Cruise 2008

  1. Nordstrom Mall of America just received their copy of the Cruise 2008 collection. I do not have photos yet, but here is a list of what is included in this collection:

    New Modern Chain Collection

    Jumbo Classic in Lambskin with Silver Hardware

    Cerf Tote now called "CHANEL Executive" in black or white with silver or gold hardware

    Ice Cube: An updated look of the "Naked" bag, 3 styles including a tote

    Melrose: all of these bags are made from satin, one style resembles the original Coco Cabas, bright colors including blue, black, and magenta

    Hollywood: over the top metallic finishes with huge CC logos

    Wallets: made in black or red patent leather

    Icons: classic flap styles with patent leather trim, similar to the "Smocked" collection from fall

    CHANEL is doing a lot of fun colors and concepts for this collection. Karl always likes to bring CHANEL back to places that were important to Coco Chanel. During her career, Chanel worked in Hollywood designing costumes for movies and movie stars. Because of Coco Chanel's connection to Hollywood, Los Angelos was the inspiration behind the Cruise 2008 collection. The runway show was done at an airport in LA. The models were flown in on CHANEL airplanes and walked off the planes onto the runway. Karl used many bright colors and was inspired by Europe's vision of what it means to be from LA. Also, Karl also used alot of inspiration from the 60's and the "psychadellic" movement.

    Nordstrom MOA's trunk show for this collection will be on October 15th, I will have access to photos after this date.

    Enjoy this beautiful and whimsical collection!
