Tiffany’s Christmas Campaign

Each year I eagerly await the release of Tiffany’s Christmas campaign. Romantic, whimsical and enchantingly beautiful, Tiffany’s always manage to perfectly capture the wonderful essence of Christmas. Breathtaking New York, precious white snow, beautiful couples and exquisite jewellery – Tiffany’s campaigns are unlike any other. And this year is no exception.  J’dore Tiffany’s!

A Very Lanvin Christmas

Alber Elbaz of Lanvin has designed Claridge’s iconic Christmas tree. Elbaz’s darling sketch of his exquisite Christmas vision, pictured right, has been unveiled and it looks positively Lanvin perfection!

Of being given the Christmas tree honor, Elbaz said: “The concept of the Christmas Tree decoration is to create an installation that carries the spirit of Lanvin, an infusion of tradition and modernity at the same time. The tree is to emanate and bring heartwarming joy to all who work and stay as guests at Claridge’s hotel: It’s my way to wish them a very Merry Christmas.”

The 2009 and 2010 Claridge’s Christmas trees were Dior inspired and created by John Galliano. The Lanvin tree will be unveiled on November 22nd and will be on display in the iconic lobby until January 2nd.

Are you beginning to feel the festive Christmas spirit? xx

Coco Chanel Secrets Uncovered In New Biography

‘Coco Chanel: An Intimate Life’, written by Lisa Chaney, will be released later this year and is set to lift the lid on the designer’s private life. The biographer claims to have found evidence, Chanel “used drugs, embraced bisexuality and had an affair with Salvador Dali while he was married”.

The author’s publicist has also confirmed that Chaney accessed documents from the Swiss Federal Archives to prove Günther von Dincklage (one of Chanel’s lovers) was a spy for the Nazis during World War II.

While there are many Chanel bios already out there, this one is certainly shaping up to be a compelling read.
