Chanel’s Rides


Luxury name brands have ventured into areas never fathomed before.

A young man from Hong Kong designed the first concept of a Chanel car in junction with the design aesthetic of the fashion houses decades of  style. He kept the body streamline, feminine, smooth, yet linear and made a great emphasize on Coco Chanel‘s stamp on the monochrome- the entire car, both interior and exterior, are in black and white. To top off the look, he has incorporated the Chanel logo onto the front, back, and rims of the car to secure its signature look.

This is not the first time that Chanel designs a version of an automobile. Chanel‘s head hauncho, Karl Lagerfeld, had designed a Segway in the past. Complete with the classic quilted pouch on the front, quilted handles, and logo’s ornamenting the rims and front of it.

Would you be seen riding these around town?



Flip Mode


Neutral colored clothes might be very easy to wear but they can be very plain and boring if not teamed up with the right accessories or, better yet, has a shocking detail; so shocking that it should have came with a warning sign: The back of the dress will shock you and make you the envy of all your frenimies.

There is a flip side to this light and airy Ports 1961 dress. Lots of tucks and ruched details were incorporated to the back of the dress to add a powerful interest. Just remember to have your long hair cleverly rolled into a modern Prada-ish chignon up-do. And maybe complete the look with a pair of Camilla Skovgaard python heels.

The dress is priced at KD 219. Ports 1961 spring collection is now available in store.
