A Sacred Place in Pictures: Coco’s Apartment


Some people go to Kaaba, some go to Jerusalem, and for some there is 31 Rue Cambon. With the risk of being sacrilegious, this address sounds to me like one of the most coveted and sacred places in the world, not only in fashion. I was in awe today for quite some time when I saw the last post by The Coveteur – Coco’s Apartment. The post is amazing, it shares so much, not only beautiful imagery, but also insights from the life of Gabrielle Chanel, her superstitious nature and the symbolism in her home, the furniture she designed, the little nooks and corners of the apartment and the endless bookshelves with dark red leather-bound books. Here are some of the images, but definitely make sure to visit the Coveteur to read the whole experience.

Priceless.

Really.

 The Staircase with the Mirrors!!!

Custom made crystal chandelier. Can you spot the number 5?

Suede sofa designed by Coco herself.

Coco’s Desk

Wheat – symbol of prosperity and source of inspiratio for Karl’s SS2010 collection.

The iconic white chair and the mirror that was inspiration for the cap of Chanel N5.

Amazing, isn’t it? Nothing similar to the black and white, very clean shaped stylistic of her brand, but in the same time very meaningful and revealing of the nature and character of the most famous woman in fashion.

Paris-Bombai at 31 Rue Cambon


After my state of wide eyed, dreamy, OMG-ness from last week when writing about the Coveteur and Chanel, I never thought something better might be posted on their amazing blog. But alas, there is time for a few minutes of true beauty as the Coveteur was invited to 31 Rue Cambon for the Paris-Bombai collection… the result – amazing photographs of amazing pieces in an amazing setting. A dream!

Die for Chanel


 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

The Coveteur is one of my favourite reads. A daily inspiration source. And of course a site full of amazing lust-worthy fashion items.

The latest post is all about Chanel! And to be more specific RARE CHANEL pieces. So teary eyed, and gasping at every image, I am sharing my favourites with you. Be sure to check the post on the Coveteur  for the rest of die-worthy pieces. Pure amazingness, that can only Chanel create!

For the Love of Zoe


I am a Zoe-holic, and I am not afraid to admit it. Absolutely love Rachel, her style, her drive and her bit of eccentricity. I am watching her show religiously, and deep down wish she would be my best friend. So you can only imagine my excitement when the Coveteur’s last adventures were in her headquarters.  The pictures are amazing, as always on the Coveteur, but RZ’s HQ is what fashion heaven will look like if it excised on earth. Tons of everything, beautifully organized and color-coded. Heaven!
