Time again for my Mondrian Céline skirt

One of my fav Céline collections of all times has always been the spring 2014 collection. And I am more than proud that I managed to secure the pleated skirt with asymmetric hem and colourful print, which always reminds me of Mondrian or Miro paintings.

Blending in with the flowers

OK I don’t need to tell you that I am kind of an obsessed Chanellista. I love collecting Chanel brooches, bags and shoes but above everything I love the Chanel jackets. For me they are the epitome of sartorial perfection. Whenever I go on a trip the first thing I pack is a Chanel jacket. Afterwards I arrange the rest of the travel wardrobe around that piece.

Sometimes a bath suit and denim cutoffs are enough …

Aand here it comes outfit number 2 … Its really amazing how easy it is to take outfit photos while on Mykonos. What I really want to show you with this post is how many different faces the island has. In the old town of Mykonos the white houses and colourful doors really scream for more elegant, romantic and playful looks. But as soon as you leave this part of the island everything gets a boho and Robinson kind of vibe. In oder to acknowledge that I opted for nothing more than a simple bath suit and a pair of denim cutoffs for our walk along the coast between Scorpios Beach Club and Paradise Beach.

Chanel pocket jackets from the Seoul collection

Talking “must haves” and “It pieces” these days its usually all about the bags, shoes, sunglasses and costume jewelry. Rarely the talk is about clothing! However, for Chanel I personally have the strong feeling that this is absolutely not where it ends. After all Chanel was founded as a Couture house instead of a leather goods business. So let’s have a look at the Chanel pocket jackets from the cruise Seoul runway today!

Chanel chain necklace – Greetings from Seoul!

Thinking Chanel costume its only logical to imagine pearls. But since quite some seasons another signature style seems to compete with the pearl based designs on the Chanel runways. Its chain necklaces, bracelets and belts. Curious to see how Karl Lagerfeld reinvented the Chanel chain necklace style for his latest cruise collection staged in the South Korean capital of Seoul?
