    Karl Lagerfeld Photographs Iconic Furniture From Cassina.

    13th March

    I nearly fell of my chair when I saw this collaboration between Karl and Cassina. This project was Lagerfeld’s first ever collaboration with a furniture brand. He was commissioned to photograph a selection of furniture from Cassina’s iconic collections. When placed under the sharp eye of Karl Lagerfeld, the furniture takes on new and mysterious qualities…



    The Little Black Jacket // Photographic Exhibition About CHANEL’s Classic Arrives in Sydney.

    26th October

    Call me a tragic design nerd if you will, but few things in this world get me excited as beautiful, enduring, classic design pieces do, whatever they may be. CHANEL’s Little Black Jacket most definitely falls in that category. CHANEL alone owns that category, but that’s a whole other post. Created during the fifties by Mademoiselle Coco Chanel, The Jacket has become one of the most recognisable and well known fashion icons today – in fact, The Jacket has transcended fashion and become a universal icon of indisputable historical value. Just like a classic piece of furniture, or an iconic example of architecture, the staying power of The Jacket has elevated it to a legendary status..



    Design Free Thursday | Pin Portraits by Philip Karlberg.

Mr Karlberg used approximately 1200 carefully arranged wooden pins and clever lighting to recreate faces of “classic wearers of sunglasses”. Scuplting and shooting took 6 days for the 6 faces…



    Chanel Runway for Spring Summer 2012 by Zaha Hadid.

    31st October

    Blow me down with a feather why dontcha? First of all, I cannot friggin believe I am blogging about Zaha Hadid’s work, but not just that – Zaha’s work I really like. What the…? Well, stranger things have happened I guess. For the recent Paris Fashion Week 2012 Chanel runway show, Karl Lagerfeld commissioned Hadid to design the catwalk with a nautical concept and transform the Grand Palais for women’s Spring/Summer collection. How incredible, no? This is what happens when designers hit that sweet spot of inspiration, magic and unlimited budget.

    Isn’t it just crazy to think all that effort went into a 15 minutes show? And I’m not talking about the set only. How about all the clothes (the most divine, exquisite, lust-worthy clothes… *le sigh*), the shoes, the bags and the make-up. It’s exhausting! I was …
