The Year of Coco Chanel
The best present I ever got was an original coco chanel fashion illustration. I have had it for several years now and I still love it and it keeps reminding me of this pioneering french queen of fashion. The latest issue of French vogue is a tribute to Coco Chanel and the 22nd of April is the French premiere date of the Coco Avant Chanel movie. The first trailer has just arrived – a sneak preview only in French which makes it even more original. The main characters in the movie are Audrey Tautou (the fabulous Amelie from Montmartre) and Allesandro Nivola. I am quite sure this will be the fashion movie of 2009 – showing fabulous costumes, beautiful scenes and charismatic characters. I will hereby dedicate the year to the never ending inspiration source Chanel as well! This is visible in the Eda Mae AW/09 collection, which also contains items and looks inspired by this wonderful universe.
