J’adore Chanel

I am pretty much over all the ‘Valentines gift ideas!’ emails that are clogging up my inbox (sorry PRs) – apart from this one. Chanel’s double C logo is one of my favourite luxury logos for its graphic simplicity. Legend has it that the lampposts of Westminster are adorned with interlocking Cs as a symbol of The Duke of Westminster’s love for Coco. Sweet!

While we’re on the subject, how clever is this pic by Raymond Meier for US Vogue, styled by Elissa ‘Elissa, your shoots always look the same’ Santissi*. Sheer brilliance!
