Fashion 101: Chanel Vintage Jewelry!




Chanel Vintage Jewelry is every fashionista dream come true. Why?
Well, let's see. The every item is a little piece of history, the quality is much, much better than today's Chanel costume jewelry and it costs less this season's pieces.
Show me a woman who doesn’t love vintage Chanel and I’ll show you a woman who doesn’t know the difference between a haute couture dress and a garbage bag.  
Rachel Zoe, Olivia Palermo, Kate Moss - they all adore vintage pieces.

In order to be sure you bought authentic vintage piece you should go to stores specialized in selling vintage pieces, such as Yukiko in Paris. Also e-bay is a great place where you can hunt down Chanel Vintage pieces (just make sure that seller has no negative feedback).

Vintage Vocab:There are few terms  you should be familiar with while hunting Chanel Vintage Necklaces. Sometimes they are correctly used, often not, but still you should know them:

  • A sautoir is a long necklace, often with an ornament such as a tassel or pedant at the end
  • Gripoix refers to the House of Gripoix in Paris which was founded in 1890 and over the centuries has created beautiful jewelry for Chanel, Lanvin, Givenchy, YSL and many others. The artisans od Gripoix were among the first to master the tehnique of glass enameling.

Chanel Vintage nakit je san svake prave fashioniste. Zasto?

Pa, da vidimo: Svaki komad ima svoju istoriju, samim tim je i sarmantniji, mnogo je boljeg kvaliteta i izrade od danasnjem dizajnerskog nakita i povoljniji je od trendovskih komada!

Pokazite mi zenu koja ne voli Chanel Vintage nakit i ja cu vam pokazati zenu koja ne zna razliku izmedju Haute Couture haljine i kese za smece!
Rachel Zoe, Kate Moss, Olivia Palermo, sve su one lude za Vintage nakitom:)

Da bi bile sigurne da ste kupile autentican komad idite u radnje koje su specijalizovane za Vintage nakit i odecu kao sto je Yukiko u Parizu. Takodje, E  bay je fantasticno mesto za pronalazenje retkih vintage komada ( naravno, uvek proverite kakav je feedback prodavca, pozeljno 100% pozitivan).

Vintage recnik: Postoje dva termina koja bi trebali da znate pre nego sto krenete u lov za Chanel Vintage ogrlicom:
  • A Sautior je dugacka ogrlica koja na kraju ima privezak
  • Gripoix se odnosi na kucu Gripoix koja je osnovana 1890 i koja preko 100 godina kreira predivan nakit za Chanel, Lanvin, YSL, Givanchy i mnoge druge.... 


Srecan lov!
