One word: CHANEL. There’s a dream in this word, a dream that began when I was only 16, when my mother gave me for the first time, one of her favorite handbags, the Chanel Double Flap. This was my first important bag, and it always meant a lot to me. It’s the same handbag I wore at my first Chanel Fashion Show. I will never forget how excited I was… I relived that same feeling in Paris during this Fashion Week, spending an entire day in the Chanel Universe. I woke up very early in the morning to get ready for the Maison’s  show…Hair, makeup…. After the show I went to the new shop ( completly dedicated to Make up)  in Rue Saint- Honoré (a shop I’m going to write about next week, so stay tuned!) and then Rue Cambon, where the historical Chanel Boutique is. The apartment of Mademoiselle is still there, and I had the pleasure to visit it… It was like a dream: the mirrored staircase from where Coco Chanel spied on the audiences reactions during her presentations, the armchair where she was usually portrayed, everything was like I was imagining, actually a little better. It was incredible being able to sit on the same sofa where artists such as Dalì or Picasso sat, looking at pictures of her and of the people she loved… The presence of Mademoiselle Coco was so strong that I had the feeling that she was about to open the door, at any moment, come towards the sofa and sit right next to me  😉

  • I’m really curious about how you do your skin care, especially your face! It looks so flawless! Do you ever have done something like cosmetic medicine care?? Or it is the great result from Photoshop?(no offense, just kidding…) 😛

    I love when YOU write stories and tell us a bit more about the pictures and the context instead of just showing pictures and no story..

  • I like that you wrote a little bit more than usual in this post. You normally don’t as much anymore, and I’m glad you did here. You post a lot so I don’t expect you to always do that, but I would love to see more of your thoughts and feelings about life in general in the future. You have a cute and fun perspective on life that it would be great to see on this space.

    Also, I love the outfits you styled here, but I’m not totally loving the way the photos were shot. They seem to sort of wash out your beauty, instead of enhancing it.

  • Chanel è classe, eleganza, praticità, simbolo della donna moderna, emancipata e indipendente. Sogno di poter indossare un completo in tweed da sempre, è la perfezione! Bellissimi entrambi i tuoi Look, quello in azzurrino ti sta divinamente, ti dona tantissima luce al viso 🙂
    Buona giornata e baci Chiara!

    three words: you look great! Darling, that was a whole epos you’ve written, congratulations!

    Great photos, however I feel such an incredible experience of having a first hand glance at an icon’s world deserves a more detailed and more thought out explanation than such a small paragraph… I felt this portrayed more about you than Chanel….

  • Wonderful outfits, the blue suit that you chose for the Chanel show is incredible, it’s really beautiful and so classic with your personal casual touchwith these sneakers. Adore the burgundy look, it’s pure Chanel and you look fabulous with it. Chanel is a dream.Wow that day was amazing, an unique experience, it’ll keep in your memorie forever.
