Mademoiselle Chanel has long been a fan of costume jewellery, often known for her signature style that was all about layering on faux pearl necklaces and wearing them together with her very own pieces of fine jewellery. In fact, she pioneered the costume jewellery trend at a time when it was largely frowned upon, introducing pieces that launched together with her RTW collection, which is a practice that carries on till this very day under the brand’s current Creative Director, Virginie Viard.
A generous selection of costume jewellery pieces awaits you season after season, which includes earrings, cuffs and of course, brooches that’s the very subject of today’s post. Now, there’s something enigmatic about Chanel brooches that you can’t get enough of, especially with the double CC versions made popular by Karl Lagerfeld when he integrated the interlocking logo across the entire brand, including RTW pieces and bags, turning it into an icon in its very own right.
A brooch is a truly versatile piece that can be pinned onto a dress or tee that immediately transforms the outfit, and Chanel’s versions for its Fall-Winter 2019 Pre-Collection come decked out with gorgeous embellishments (from glass pearls to natural stones) that make them absolute statement-makers. You will also notice that each and every piece comes with the identifiable CC logo found right in the middle, or forming the very skeletal structure as an enlarged CC on the brooch proper.
Priced from SGD660 and up, these brooches will be available in boutiques real soon, so stay tuned for more updates to come. Alternatively, you can always head down and leave your name with the boutique to be informed the moment it (or they, because you don’t have to stop at one) arrives.
