I am sick of Chanel pasting its logo on every random thing and making it 'cool' in an instant. It doesn't work anymore and enough already. This is not creativity or design at its finest: this is all complete marketing trash that has no real merit other than selling crap to people who walk around looking like a dumpster yard for designer items.

Take any random thing from the street and put two CCs on it, and then you have something priceless and gorgeous? Pls. It is boring. And I usually adore Chanel jewelry btw.

i love that the materials they use don't really differ from the materials H&M or Monsoon use for their jewelry. you know, steel, resin (aka plastic) and glass. yet cost 100 times more.

imo it's genius.

It works for people who know nothing about fashion. They see a hideous, say, hairclip, then they spot a CC or LV, it suddenly looks gorgeous and they will pay 10 billion for the hairclip. In places like China, people shop for labels.

I suggest that we can all put a CC on our heads. Then we'll be the hottest and the most stylish kids in the universe.

Well. It's not as awfully overpriced as I would have thought. Thanks!

If it counts, one time, about ten years ago, I shaved an interlocking CC on the side of my head and colored it gold. True story.
And I agree with you and pasha, those accessories are tacky. Everything was better 2000-2005 as far as Chanel accessories.

^ For me it's the irony of putting a Chanel inter-linked double C in the centre of a communist star.
Plus I love all things Russian.

Totally agree I'm so sick of seeing CC everywhere!They should know better that this is not good for their brand image. I wish I had the money to buy Hermes. Chanel is becoming the new LV.

Topshop has now a budget friendly version of the Chanel russian doll bag for only 22 pound. What do you think of it?


Here you can buy it: http://www.topshop.com/webapp/wcs/st...2285&langId=-1

I think it's a great copy. Love it.
