Rediscovering past Chanel ads

There's a certain magic to vintage photo shoots, whether they're editorials or ad campaigns. To me, Chanel campaigns of the past, especially the relatively distant past, are always such classics. The styling, the models, and the photography all look so natural, while still serving the purpose of making the clothes look beautiful and desirable. Here are a few of my favourites:

I just wanted to let you all know that I'll be out of the province for a week so that could mean I won't be posting or it might take me a bit of time to comment/look at all of your blogs. Things should return to normal after that, though.


  1. Ah, I love love love all of them! You must have had some patience in order to discover them, at times I look all over the Tumblr for old Vogue editorials (I found one from 1954 yesterday- lucky me!) so this collection of yours is really nice! Would you like to follow each other? :)

    Have a lovely Sunday!

    Kisses, Mary
