You can't buy anything from their website. The only place to get the authentic Chanel's are at a store. They sell them at almost all Neiman Marcus's in the CoCo Chanel Boutique, but that is the only place besides the actual Chanel store that isn't near you. You could also try eBay, but alot of times, they are total fakes. If you do decide to buy some from any websites that doesn't have to do with the official Chanel store or anything, look on the back of the earrings you purchased and see if they have a tiny circle that says Chanel. That means they are real. The real ones can be purchased at $210.
I hope you find some soon!
So I have to be Coco Chanel for a school project, how do i dress like her without buying something?
If you have a knee length skirt (not denim or print) and a long button front cardigan then wear those with a plain white top and pile on several gold chains and long strings of pearls. If you have a white silk flower, pin that on one upper side of the cardigan. (Chanel really overdid it when it came to accessories).
Button the cardigan all the way down so the effect is like a low waisted dress. That look was very common in her early collections. Good luck!! : P
I don't know what else to tell you, besides go to the sellers profile, and read the reviews of other people on how their bags are and if they are authentic or not. :)
But the for sure, always right way to know if your purse is a knock off is to take it to the store that sells them.
Peace & Love !
What's the difference between Coco Chanel film in English and the one in French?
Three films about Coco Chanel were made recently and have been released in 2008 and 2009.
Coco Chanel (2008) is a television film directed by Christian Duguay and written by Ron Hutchinson, Enrico Medioli and Lea Tafuri. It stars Shirley MacLaine as (the older) Coco Chanel, the pioneering French fashion designer. The film was broadcast by Lifetime Television
The film "Coco avant Channel" is a biopic by Anne Fontaine of Mademoiselle Chanel when she was young and poor before she became the famous couturier and perfume expert. Audrey Tautou is playing the main part.
Coco Avant Chanel, has been criticised for "ignoring" her affair with the Nazi officer, Hans Gunther von Dincklage. Instead the film focuses on what its director calls the "miserable Balzacian early years of Gabrielle Chanel", nicknamed "Coco" during her failed attempt to launch a singing career. The film sees her move from poverty to high society, from young hat-maker to her first catwalk show, but it stops short of the darker period in her life - her affair with the Nazi officer at Paris's Ritz hotel during the Occupation.
It also fails to mention that Chanel tried to use the law banning Jews from owning businesses to wrest control of her perfume manufacturing from the Wertheimer family who ran it at that time.
The movie is the first of two feature films about the fashion house founder to open in 2009 . A second is a rival film about Chanel's love affair with the Russian composer Igor Stravinsky.Coco Chanel and Igor Stravinsky met and loved each other for a few madly passionate seasons before going separate ways to become legends of Western society. Jan Kounen's "Coco Chanel & Igor Stravinsky" takes the measure of this affair in a film that is less a dual biopic than a fleeting impression of two 20th century cultural revolutionaries.
Since she died in 1983, interviews probably aren't too available. This site has a nice biography of her, along with a lot of related sites:
The closest thing to an interview I found was a list of quotes:
