Chanel Me About It


There are good days; there are great days; and there are days where you visit Chanel. Last Friday was the latter.



I've never even been into a Chanel shop, let alone stalked into their offices like I belonged there. The reason for my visit was an exclusive blogger preview of the new Coco Cocoon bag range. 


Vanessa Paradis is the model for the gorgeous range of squishy quilted loveliness. Here I am in the photo blocking your view of her as I 'walk' with an elegant wheelie bag.

The collection was beautiful, the Chanel girls were gorgeous (one even said she loved my dress!) and the mini-bagels were 1/17th of the size of a regular bagel. Needless to say I was impressed.

I also got to meet some of my fellow bloggers including Alex of Alex Loves – one very cool lady – and The Very Simon G

One little chap managing to upstage everyone and the bags too was Dhillon, Simon's mini dachshund puppie. After a low-key entrance he proceeded to make himself very at home amongst the thousands of pounds worth of premium baggage. I can't blame him, I wanted to smoother myself in quilted leather as well.

The lovely Ally Pyle of Glam Media modelled the large reversible gold tote for me; its burgundy interior matching perfectly with her gorgeous tortoiseshell Vivienne Westwood Melissa flats (which I now want. Badly).

I was taken with many of the bags, but particularly this navy blue number. So chic! Might as well get the little matching wash bag while I'm at it non?




Thank you very much to Mighela at Chanel for inviting me.

  1. The... squooshiness (for lack of a better word) of those bags looks very satisfying.

  2. I want one too. You are correct - one of these would be the ideal partner on a long train journey. Pillow/bag perfection.
