In honor of Paris Fashion Week, we are celebrating Chanel and the specific je ne sais quoi the iconic tweed fabric lends to every look. Whether you’re power-lunching or dressing up your denim with a bouclé blazer, Chanel tweed always suits the occasion.
Gabrielle “Coco” Chanel was a true trailblazer, as a designer, and as a woman. Often inspired by the practicality of menswear, she once borrowed a tweed blazer from her then boyfriend, the Duke of Westminster, and was instantly drawn to the durability and sophistication of the fabric. In 1924 she began producing her infamous tweed in Scotland; the fabrics are now woven in Paris at the House of Lesage. Chanel tweed remains an iconic staple of chicness and class 90 years later.
Get your own classic here.

Ga-Ga for Gucci
When one thinks of Italy one thinks pasta, wine, pasta, and Gucci (not necessarily in that order). Guccio Gucci founded his specialty leather store in Florence, Italy in 1921; where the Flagship Gucci store still stands today. During the 1930’s Guccio’s designs were inspired by his love of horse racing, and the equestrian lifestyle that inspired so many of the great designers of that time. Turning his passion into fashion, he created the iconic Gucci horse bit and stirrup shaped hardware the brand is still known for today. In 1953 Guccio’s sons expanded the Gucci empire globally. Opening locations in Paris, London, and New York.
From 1994- 2005 Tom Ford led as Creative Director, putting Gucci back on the map as a contemporary luxury label with the same pristine quality of the eponymous fashion house. In 1999, Kering bought Gucci and several other luxury brands such as, Bottega Veneta, Saint Laurent, Alexander McQueen, Balenciaga, and Stella McCartney, forming the Gucci Group.
After a long line of Creative Directors and designers, the brand seems to have struck gold in 2015 with the appointment of current Creative Director Alessandro Michele. The man responsible for the mass-resurgence we’re seeing of Gucci today from the runway to the streets.

Valentine’s Day has come and gone, but that doesn’t mean you don’t deserve some good old-fashion spoiling. If Cupid missed the mark this year, treat yourself! These fresh picks are far better than day-old flowers; and with spring right around the corner, you can’t go wrong with hot pinks and fierce reds.
