Unlocking Chanel’s Treasure Chest for SNSD
POSTED IN Articles, Hyoyeon, Jessica, Seohyun, SNSD, Sooyoung, Sunny, Taeyeon, Tiffany, Yoona, Yuri | TAGGED:

The Girls’ Generation and Chanel love affair have been going on for quite some time. From the first time they met through the girls’ magazine shoots, their relationship has then blossomed to a point where both parties are inseparable. We see Girls’ Generation with Chanel items such as bags and shoes most of time when they’re in the airport. Although these classic looks are beautiful, here at Soshi Style we can’t help but select Chanel runway looks that would best fit the girls. We hope to see these Chanel pieces worn by the girls in their upcoming special appearances/events and in the airport!

*Please note the Chanel dress is being referred for SNSD, and not the complete ensemble

Chanel Runway Looks


Taeyeon: Resort 2014 Collection
Taeyeon has been experimenting with her sexy-side lately. From navel-baring crop tops to see-through sweaters, Taeyeon definitely wants to emphasize her being a woman. This mini-dress from Chanel’s Resort 2014 collection is both classy and exciting. With it’s length perfect for Taeyeon’s height and the intricate embellishments add more elegance to the dress’ fierce style, with it also being very wearable for different hair and make-up styles.


Jessica: Spring 2013 Collection
Jessica can pull-off anything as the renowned fashionista. This look from Chanel’s Spring 2013 line will make her the muse to all artists. The dress is very clean and elegant, perfect as a canvas for more vibrant accessories. The look is very versatile, giving the freedom of proper alterations and a wider range for hair and make-up. Jessica can also choose to grace this dress during a day or night event.


Sunny: Spring 2013 Collection
A perfect ensemble for Sunny would be something sweet and youthful. This shorter Chanel Spring 2013 dress flows perfectly and fits Sunny’s petite figure. It’s color makes it easier to match it with colorful accessories. The pearl embellishments are more visible, giving off a very vintage Chanel feel. Although this dress is perfect for night events, Sunny can wear this dress with edgier pieces/accessories to make it fit for the night.

The Price of Fame: Chanel
POSTED IN Articles, Fashion Highlights, Uncategorized | TAGGED:

As is the case with luxury and status symbols, nothing of the sort typically comes cheap, and when it comes to Chanel, “cheap” still costs upwards of $500 or so dollars. Needless to say, you need an idol-level salary to be able to readily afford these, and thankfully, Girls’ Generation just happen to be in the position to do so.

Being the upscale fashion house it is, Chanel produces ready-to-wear clothing and accessories, as well as it’s considerably pricier and famous haute couture (“high fashion”) items, which are custom made to suit the needs and measurements of the client, offering the ultimate degree of customization, and when asked, allows the wearer to inform the curious individual that “Yes sir, it’s one of a kind”, doubly so if the individual asking is G-Dragon. Just kidding.

As it stands, the members of Girls’ Generation are typically spotted with the ready-to-wear portion of the designer label, consisting typically of their handbags, wallets, purses and shoes. Though these are in the lower-tier of the product, they still command a pretty penny – the salmon pink clutch wallet pictured below retails for roughly about $950. Oh, to be rich.

Moreover, the girl’s strongly prefer the handbags, as along with the shoes are the most commonly seen of the items. No surprise there, Chanel handbags, alongside the sunglasses and cosmetics, are the widely regarded as the most visible and prominent of the label’s items. While some other luxury makers emblazon their design to almost comical extents on some items (MK all over Michael Kors hand bags), most Chanel bags stick to the tried and true method of the double CC on one or two locations, not too gaudy but not too understated that the brand is unable to be recognized.

In the photo below, Sunny’s bag from the 2013 showcases the characteristics detailed above.

Though at roughly $5,000 a bag, the eye-catching design is nothing to be surprised about. After all, brands survive by revolutionizing or reinventing fashionable statements like bags or glasses. Chanel’s made trailblazing strides in both, and it’s no surprise the members of Girls’ Generation have gravitated towards them and sought to showcase them without even being sponsored models. While the price is high for some, Girls’ Generation is not just “some” group, and money is not an issue for them. With some saving and budgeting(not applicable if you’re either wealthy, if so, you probably just bought the 2 products I pictured above or already owned them), you too can turn an airport into a runway just like Jessica. Only, you know. Without the paparazzi.

Girls’ Generation: Classy and Fabulous

The increase in purchase of Chanel merchandise at the end of last year to this year:

Girls’ Generation have been seen with more Chanel sightings in both airport outfits and other occasions. Let us now see their beautiful relationship.

The Concept

Coco Chanel’s fashion belief is to promote women’s independence and beauty, during her times as a young seamstress, Chanel’s idea of women beauty already differed from her supervisor. Her own set of thoughts and beliefs embeds her pursue of women’s unique beauty, so as to further let the beauty shine through by wearing Chanel’s products.

After Coco died in 1971, there came the post-Coco Era. Starting from 1983, Karl Lagerfeld came to lead the luxurious French brand. He consolidated classic Chanel elements such as tweed fabrics, chains, pearls and last but not least, the double C logo into modern and youthful designs, such as experimenting textures and designs and rifting from feminine designs. He elevated the brand into a contemporary level yet remaining classic.


Coincidentally, Girls’ Generation went through a similar transformation debuted as a teenage girl group with a typical pure, schoolgirl concept with cute songs such as ‘Kissing You’ and their all-time hit ‘Gee’. But after ‘Gee’, Girls’ Generation tore the cute concept apart and came back in shorts and stilettos with Genie. Up till now, their latest comeback ‘I Got A Boy’ featured hip hop attire and wedge sneakers. From pure girl to mature lady, and then becoming a hipster, the girls can be fit in any concept you can think of (i.e. Taxi driver, cheerleader, flight attendant, marines etc. etc.)


Our femme fatale, Jessica, has been spotted with most Chanel products recently (and our all time record too…) Jessica definitely fits the concept of Chanel, promoting the different sides of female beauty. She can digest a minimal makeup look with an innocent smile or a heavy smoky eye with sensual lips. The ever-changing looks of her awe viewers.

Both Chanel and Girls’ Generation had a specific image to promote and rose with popularity and impression. But then, keeping up with a certain concept is too mundane and revolutionized into a whole new being that can fit a variety of concepts.

The Versatility


The most popular Chanel item among the girls lately must be the Chanel Boy Bag and the Classic Flap Bag. Previously mentioned in our polls, the Boy Bag could adapt to any kinds of outfit in any season and highlighting the wearers’ image immediately. The close-knitted checks, chains and the dusted-silver buckle emits a vintage rock aura.


Another favorite is the Classic Flap Bag. Ranging from airport outfits to wedding appearances, just like its name, the Classic Flap Bag is a statement itself. With its wide range of colors (pink, black, wine red) to purchase from, its different colors can suit various occasions. In fact, many fashion brands of the day use the Classic Flap Bag as inspiration and further developed their own bag designs, by this we can see the ‘status’ of it.

An honorable mention is the Chanel sneakers, a Soshi Stylist all time favorite. This bewitchment magically adds a touch of sporty chicness to the wearer, whether the attire is compose of a leather jacket with black pants or a pastel sweater with white skinny jeans. We can see the almighty magic of Chanel working its purpose for fashion!


Besides from versatile handbags, Chanel has been known for its flattering couture designs. Our girls modeled the Spring RTW 2013 Collection for High Cut and Vogue Korea in June. The collection features white ruffles and frills, the immense detail of the cocktail dresses do look elegant and exquisite on the runway and our girls in the photo shoots. Yet these dresses are only suitable for high end occasions and parties and might be a too overwhelming for lower level occasions.

Regardless of the versatility or price of Chanel products, each product is a brain child of the designer and contains numerous efforts, so as the music and performances by Girls’ Generation.

‘In order to be irreplaceable one must always be different.’ —— Chanel

Let us both support Chanel and Girls’ Generation for more inspiring creations!
