Coco Chanel’s Costume Jewelry

The Fall-Winter collections of 2004-05 were occupied with a revival of Coco Chanel’s classical styles. This revival included a plethora of Bloomsbury fabrics, tweeds, tartans, and equestrian suits. The classical Chanel look includes simple jersey dresses, box-jacket suits, knit suits, and pullovers with white piqué collars and cuffs. To complement these styles, luxurious pearl accessories were shown as the accent ‘de jour’.

The classical Coco Chanel style found in this year’s Fall-Winter collection is best complemented with simple and elegant beads. Pearls and stain finish beads in solid colors will harmonize with the classical look seen on the runways. Feminine sporty beads can also be used to complete a Chanel look, especially if tweed fabrics are in your wardrobe. When selecting beaded jewelry look for classical colors such as black, white or cream. Any beaded jewelry that has a chic, clean, and savvy appearance would balance any classical outfit.

The current Medalye Designs collection offers various pieces which are ideal for classical attire. Forever Classic is an especially appropriate piece and was inspired by the house of Coco Chanel. In this design, satin finished oval black beads offer a clean line and a rich luminescence for a simple yet dynamic pearl piece. For office suits of Coco Channel caliber, the Forever Classic beaded lanyard may be your best bet. For the sporty tweed look, matte beads combined with luster beads can offer a sporty yet feminine finish to an outfit. Innocence is an excellent example of femininity combined with practicality. If you wear an eyeglass chain or eyeglass necklace but want to maintain a classical look, then the Innocence design is an ideal choice. In this design the matte finish of the beads have a sporty appeal, while the round shape of the beads offer a feminine line. As well, the cream crystal and cream luster beads in Innocence offer a final rich feminine touch.

Warm Regards,
Medalye Designs
