It’s safe to say that CHANEL holds a special place in my heart (& vanity table) and the Holiday 2020 Chaînes d’Or Collection definitely does NOT disappoint. Setting the tone is the exquisite pattern, but ultimately it’s the performance of each piece that speaks to me. Very loudly, I might add.

You get the shu uemura onitsuka tiger collection and while at first glance it might seem an odd pairing, both happen to be pioneers in their respective fields, holding status as heritage Japanese brands. Major cool-factor aside, I’m also really vibing on the entire aesthetic of this collection.
