Work that vintage glamour with the Chanel Coco Crush collection
Loco for Coco
Slipping on a piece of the Coco Crush collection goes beyond simply wearing jewellery. It's a perennial icon that embodies the spirit of Chanel, fuelled by Mademoiselle Coco's timeless style and elegance. Loyal fans know that this is the fine jewellery collection for the modern fashionistas, bar none. Classic yet contemporary, Chanel throws a new light on the collection, with friend of the house Keira Knightley, featured in the fall ad campaign that's Coco reinvented: That inimitable je ne sais quoi juxtaposed with a modern vintage glamour.
In her new role as the face of Coco Crush, Knightley brings to mind a young Gabrielle Chanel, draped in strings of lustrous pearls with the signature matelassé motif cuffs adorning both wrists, and all clad in sleek black, of course. Better known as the 'Chanel Allure', the maison brings to the fore this season the playful facet of layering via mixing and matching fine jewellery with high jewellery — an element that takes after turn-of-the-century ensembles where heirloom finery were worn alongside more contemporary pieces for a purely distinctive look.
So take a leaf from Coco's playbook, and go for quilted perfection in the Signature de Saphir necklace complemented by the gleam of white gold and glittering diamonds in the form of stacked Coco Crush rings slipped onto your digits. Or max out on metals by going across the board with different sizes of yellow, rose and white gold ring combinations for dimensional volume that's trés chic. Because this is how the modern mademoiselles flaunt their Coco Crush(es).
