Of all the luxury fashion brands in the world, Chanel is perhaps the most famous. It is able to strike a powerful balance between the past and the present — something which eludes many luxury competitors — working with punky models like Alice Dellal or soon to be stars like Lily-Rose Depp while simultaneously maintaining a timeless, prim and proper image.
Chanel has an incredibly rich heritage, but somehow still feels very modern and contemporary. This is conveyed in its eyewear collections.
Coco Chanel loved pearls, she was famous quoted to say ''a women needs ropes and ropes of pearls.'' In this latest collection the Chanel pieces feature metal arms embellished with mother of pearl.
