The iconic logo and brand that is Chanel is one that fashion lovers worldwide buy, aspire, reference to or drool over. This timeless love affair we have with just about all things ‘Chanel’ has spawned a new generation of ‘Want but can’t afford at present‘ die-hard fans to create various designs, art-work, bags, t-shirts, furniture etc (you name it’s out there) in their own personal taste. I even started a D.I.Y. COUTURE facebook album as there so many gems that should not pass your eyes. Add the genius wit of Karl Lagerfeld to the mix, and you have an underground phenomena that highly creative, original, at times genius and funny! They maybe poor but they sure are COOL!
Take heed of the the great lady herself. She’s not wrong!
‘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’ | COCO CHANEL
