Oh how I do adore Chanel; the quilted bags, the pearls, the perfume. Hell, I even love the carrier bags. I’m so excited to see the film, released today in cinemas nationwide. Coco Chanel is someone I greatly admire; she freed women from the constraints of corsets and allowed women to breathe in black. She was, in retrospect a feminist and changed the way we see fashion forever.
To celebrate the release of the movie, Queens of Noise organised the first ever fashion Chanel Flash Mob at London’s St. Pancras station last night and boy was it a success. Josie Gealer from ELLEuk.com went along with her camera to snap away all the fabulous Chanel inspired outfits, click here to see the best of the bunch.
Fashion and vintage lovers sported their finest Chanel (or Chanel-look-a-likes’) at yesterday’s fash mob. Quilted bags, Chanel No 5 perfume, tweed jackets and little black dresses were everywhere.
“Fashion is not something that exists in dresses only. Fashion is in the sky, in the street, fashion has to do with ideas, the way we live, what is happening.”
