I stared at this ad for a second and thought, oh, Pharell is modeling for Chanel. Cool. Then I had a closer look... Is he wearing... Lederhosen?? YES! And she is wearing... boiled wool and... edelweiss! WHAT?!
It is like... high fashion meets Tyrolean design. Auch, du meine Liebe! And my heart swooned at boiled wool, the boots, the wool sweaters, and the edelweiss. Now, I can only hope that the style will trickle down to the masses so it can be affordable for people like me!! However, I know this style probably won't appeal to the masses as most people probably aren't into these looks. However, as I have a love for all things German (that includes Austrian) and French, naturally I love these!!
I'm sharing my favorites from the collection. It was hard not to include every look! You'll have to click for more at the jump because there are a LOT of pictures in the post and I didn't want the whole page to take forever to load.
I'll start off with one of my favorite looks. Love the coat, the lederhosen, the Bavarian/Tyrolean hat with the feathers. Naturally I love the black leather boots too!
|I would wear this.|
One thing I wanted to point out is how the hair was styled... A lot of my relatives like to wear their hair with ribbons in it which I know comes from the German in them! I love it and I love that's how the looks were styled! I also totally loved all of the hats with the feathers!!! I have a traditional hat but never wear it. I also have a dirndl.
|hair ribbons with edelweiss in the center, love it!!!|
I think I need these Edelweiss loafers.
More pictures from the ad campaign... like the jackets? Notice the green boiled wool bag that looks kind of looks like lederhosen?
All of the pictures are from the official Chanel website. You can see the whole collection and watch the official show by going to the Paris Salzburg Chanel campaign. The campaign launches for sale this month (so we can experience sticker-shock).
