we love Pearls - Spring 2013 trend - Chanel - Runways

Posted: Feb 05 2013

When you say pearls, the first images that pop in my head are of Chanel. Coco Chanel epitomized casual cool re-inventing the Little Black Dress, introducing the quilted handbag and making two-toned flats classy & fabulous. But, in my opinion, it was her signature multi-strand costume pearls worn over casual suits that set her apart from the other couturiers. This season, Karl Lagerfeld brought back her pearls but with an 80s and 90s touch; oversize! The over the top baubles in choker and bracelet form are exactly that and I can't wait to take out my old jewelry (oh wait! after the fire, I'm not sure if I have anything left - I'm crossing my fingers my vintage pieces didn't perish too - boohoo!!). Step outside of the box this season and dare like Coco did!!
