Chanel Supermarket Where You Can Find Shoppers With Cool Purses

france-fashion_mahe352
For some of my girlfriends over the years I have run up and down, Bond Street, Sloan Street, Rodeo Drive and Rue Saint-Honoré look for that “It Purse”. What was I thinking, when I could now just go to Chanel Supermarket. Karl Lagerfeld played to the industry’s consumerist heart by parading his autumn/winter collection down supermarket aisles, during Paris Fashion Week. Here are some of the wild cool Chanel Purses you will find at this supermarket.

A chance meeting between Fashion Stylist Cindy McKendry and LA based Jewellery designer Glynneth B at The MTV awards led to this stunning collection shot in the back streets of Belfast on a typically dark damp day , this Couture collection of Jewels is more normally at home on wrists , fingers and necks of Beyonce , Rihanna  and Michelle Obama and only available in the UK from Harvey Nicholls but with a little persuasion and a lot of charm (not lacking in Ireland), Cindy secured the exclusive use of the much sought after jewels . Cindy’s vision was to dig deep into the Roots of Belfast’s Punk Rock past to highlight the edgier side to the range , enlisting the help Hairstylist Paul Stafford , photographer Catherine Mckenzie , Make Up artist Tippy Longronio and Designers Shauna Fay and Emma Gillles of Crafty Couture . Taking inspiration from Punk Icons Debbie Harry Patti Smith Joey Ramone and Iggy Pop , the shoot centred around Models Rebekah and Caroline taking on new personas to reenact fictional punk Heroines in a dark moody City -scape setting , using the everyday surroundings give the shoot a sense of reality and grittiness whilst still retaining a feeling of urban fashion cool .

Glynneth Barren and Shauna Fay , British and Irish Designers – One Mission – Rock Fashion! – Rihanna to Belfast.

1724326_10151973983749790_494275198_n
David Bowie has been an imminence inspiration for the very reserved (in her British way) designer Glynneth Barren. Some came to know her rocking jewelry design at the David Bowie Table, at the Ritz Bar, Ritz Carlton Hotel Toronto during the Toronto International Film Festival. If your collection is to arrive in style then why not in a private jet from Los Angeles.

I am blessed and very fortunate to be surrounded by women of such great talent and style that I am at times left without words, by the sheer magic being created. From the arms of Rihanna to a photo-shoot in Belfast.

Magic is being created at this very moment in Belfast, Ireland where designer Shauna Fay is busy designing a leather hot-pant suit to compliment the jewelry design of Glynneth Barren for a photo shoot to take place in Belfast this Grammy weekend. Stylist Cindy McKendry a talent in her own right had this to say ;

“This was a surreal day, in a lovely way. My lovely friend Glynneth Barren who is an international jewelry designer has flown in her jewels from L.a for a shoot. I am sitting0rlzljtfhg7sr0zg here with the bracelet Rihanna wore in this shoot . Her stuff is unlike anything I have ever seen in my life. So delighted to be shooting them in N.Ireland . Glynneth has designed for Beyonce, Michelle Obama, Keisha, there really is no-one in Hollywood she hasn’t had in her jewels. So excited to be working with them..all like works of art.Catherine MacKenzie, Paul Stafford, Tippy Logronio-Mua, Shauna Fay, Emma Gilles, Rebekah McCreesh and Caroline McMenamin”

It is the first time that Glynneth Barren’s amazing jewelry has landed in Ireland, and it is just pure magic that is being created by women of passion for style, arts, and fashion today in Belfast, Ireland.

Here is a look of what Shauna is up to as I write this post.

 

Here is some of Glynneth’s jewelery at work during the Toronto Film Festival, at the David Bowie Table.

The Sexy Angels of Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show 2012


Rihanna rocked the lingerie look at Wednesday night’s Victoria’s Secret fashion show in New York, providing the highlight of the live-music soundtrack and holding her own on the catwalk with some of the world’s top models. And those models even had props, including Adriana Lima’s ringmaster wand, Doutzen Kroes’ body cage and several pairs of the oversized wings that the retailer has made its signature. It would be a close contest who got the biggest wings: Toni Garrn’s giant poppy pair or Miranda Kerr’s swan-style feathered pouf. Only Lily Aldridge could boast star-spangled wings that shot out silver sparkles.
Mostly, though, models are encouraged to smile, ham it up and show off the extra time at the gym that most admit to in the weeks beforehand. “It’s highly televised, and you take that into consideration,” said model Joan Smalls ahead of the show. “This is kind of not the same as other runways. You have to prepare your body: No. 1 is the wings are heavy, and No. 2 is you have to be comfortable with your body because the camera will pick up on it if you’re not comfortable and confident.”

There’s an emphasis on glitz, skin and dramatic production here, not wearable undergarment trends for typical Victoria’s Secret shoppers. It was divided into six sections: Circus, complete with acrobats, contortionists and a sword eater; Dangerous Liaisons; Pink Is Us; Silver Screen Angels; Angels in Bloom; and Calendar Girls, which allowed Bruno Mars to serenade a model for each month of the year.
For his first song, “Beauty and the Beat,” Bieber, wearing low-slung white pants and a white leather studded vest, sat alone with his guitarist in the mellowest part of the show. For “As Long As You Love Me,” however, he brought in backup dancers and interacted with the models while moving around a giant makeshift pinball machine.
“It’s like a dream come true,” said Bieber on the pink carpet before the show. “I would rather be here than anywhere in the world.”

The show will be Broadcast on Tuesday, December 4, at 10p.m. ET/PT on CBS.

Gucci ! Milano Food and Fashion 2012 !

Monte Carlo to Milano it’s an easy drive, in a Ferrari and if you have Rihanna with you, then you better make sure that you have a empty truck waiting in Milano for all the Gucci bags after the Gucci spring, summer 2012 show. Music is to a fashion show, what almond oil is to Rihanna’s exquisitely sculpted legs, grafted. Without it there would be no glow. Those who survive in this digital age are those who are able to swiftly change gears like a Ferrari, or you die. The Music industry died a slow and painful death at the hands of the Internet while the fashion industry embraced it and is making it an integral part of the production of a fashion show. London fashion week saw the tweets from Burberry who tweeted a picture of the model prior to her hitting the catwalk. Gucci today will have it’s spring, summer 2012 virtual streaming show putting millions of people and I am talking in China and India in the front row seats. Milano has many places you can call home away from home and for a Canadian the home becomes the Four Seasons Hotel Milano, natch! Chef’s and Rihanna are used to being in the spot light, in front of camera’s, or live performance so here is a look at the kitchen of Il Teatro, at the Four Seasons Hotel Milano. The buzz is building models will be start arriving and it will be showtime at Gucci, walking, walking and walking the catwalk, the action never stops here at My Name is Khan for the Chef’s, models, and all those backstage getting the show ready, It’s, Milano, it’s Gucci, food, wine, fashion and women.
