In a first glance of CODE COCO, you will wonder if it’s a bracelet that sparkles around the wrist with the inspiration of quilted 2.55 bag. If you are got these two first impression then you are half way right. But if you look more closely, you can notice a diamond subtly shines on a black dial where the heart of the watch’s dial. The shines on the black dial and tiniest movement recalls the beginning of the quilted design. In a modern mind, we seek for a watch not just by it’s mechanics. We strive for a story, style and look that constantly remind us of who we are and what we are capable of. What makes a better Chanel style then simple black and white that is constantly renewed codes of CHANEL. To elaborate on the spirit of CHANEL in time, a new book set by Benoit Peverelli entitled “CHANEL – FINAL FITTINGS AND BACKSTAGE” published by Steidl (with a preface by Karl Lagerfeld). In the time of communication, Benoit Peverelli captures more than 3000 photos during the fittings and in the backstage area before our shows since 2010. I still recall 2010 is the year I first started to shift from multimedia to fashion and where I absolutely drawn to Golden Allure details of The Paris/Byzance Show. Looking through the Haute Couture, Ready to Wear, Cruise and Metier d’art photos, each photo tells a story. From the dreamy atmosphere, how models interpret CHANEL, the art of styling and the effort into every detail of Karl Lagerfeld. I can tell whenever I feel stuck or need a push of inspiration, these books will be in my hand. It’s an perspective of captures not everyone can see in real life. These photographs will inspire you to seek for your own fantasy in life.
A Jewel . A Watch. Codes
