News in Fashion.

Being that UC has decided to devote this month to celebs, we have decided to keep any other posts to a minimum so I’m about to give you a lot in this little post so please READ, don’t just look at pictures.

First, we have info on an upcoming movie about Gabrielle “Coco” Chanel.

The first biopic about the legendary French fashion designer, Coco Chanel, starring, Audrey Tautou, has finally released. The movie focuses on Chanel’s childhood and early womanhood, before she became famous. It showcases the events and people that shaped her, and will premiere in the US on September 25. Check it out.

Is it just me, or does September need to hurry here??

Remaining in the theme of Chanel, here’s a behind-the-scenes look at the shoot for Lily Allen’s Fall 2009 ad campaign for the new handbag line, Chanel Coco Cocoon. It seems as though Allen is very happy to be a part of this launch. Check her out with Creative Director, Karl Lagerfield.

What Would Coco Do?

Chanel Store BagWe here at Urban Couture are major fans of the French house of Chanel, founded by Gabrielle “Coco” Chanel  in 1909. I personally believe it should be a staple in any woman’s wardrobe (be it in their means), especially the famous Chanel suit and the classic quilted 2.55 bag. And while that will forever hold true, I’m very torn over their latest bag, the 31 Rue Cambon Tote.

I’m not sure if my colleagues will agree with me, but I’m not a fan of the tote(s), which are essentially leather versions of the store’s shopping bags, most notably from Chanel’s Paris boutique (located at-you guessed it-31 Rue Cambon). While I love Chanel, I don’t think I’d want to walk around town with a leather store bag. Of course, it’s not marketed towards me… But I’ve been wondering, would Coco herself, approve?!? She’s revolutionized women’s high fashion, but is this something she hoped for? What are your thoughts on the bag? Love it or Leave it?

Stay Classick!
