    Streetstyle New York: Dress of the week #8 – Denise

    September 2nd, 2010

    Denise approaches another level of top boots. We call them “over the top boots” without being negative or sarcastic. This boots are just an amazing, artsy piece of Versace and Denise certainly knows how to combine it with a vivid red Chanel handbag and catchy Marc Jacobs glasses. We don’t know about you but in our mind Denise is just Manhattan-Style at its best.

    Chanel, Coco

    April 7th, 2010

    Gabrielle Bonheur ‘Coco’ Chanel, French fashion designer, lived from 1883 to 1971. Coco Chanel made history as the most risk taking designer of her time. With her futuristic philosophy of combining menswear items with chic and sophisticated women’s fashion, she became one of the most iconic fashion figures of all times. Chanel, who established her namesake brand in 1909 in Paris, has been credited with liberating the conservative women’s fashion post World War I. Throughout her life, Chanel’s sense of good taste and visionary entrepreneurship helped to grow the brand to one of the biggest and most influential fashion houses up to this day. By now, Chanel sells everything fashion related from handbags to accessories and fragrances. Chanel’s perfume creation ‘Chanel No. 5′ remains one of the most iconic fragrances ever made. The brand, still headquartered in Paris, sells its products in more than 300 locations around the world. At present, fashion designer Karl Lagerfeld is acting as Chanel’s Creative Director.
