Chanel Spring 2010

Pastel and metallics. Lagerfield's first collection without any black or navy blue. I like the frosty chic and want some tights like hers. More please!

"I don't believe in avant-garde clothes for a future that will never happen. Fashion is always now." -Karl Lagerfeld's response to a comment that his collection encapsulated 'futurism'

Grey... and pops of color

Tommy Ton's best from the Milan Men's Shows. Via

My personal favorites from TheCooList's, "The World's Most Beautiful Chocolate Package Designs," post. This reminds me of a couple books I did while in school about chocolate and color and our associations with the two. I'll have to dig around for some photos of that project.

No9 Chocolate: a cardboard box with 9 foil circles on top. Break one of the foil seals open to enjoy a walnut shaped chocolate!

Kanella Gift Chocolate Calenders: a Greek product design firm that gifted each one of their clients with 12 bars of chocolate, one for each month. Each bar has a unique digital illustration.

Co Couture Chocolate: Designed by Sort Design. I have to quote TheCooList on this one, "Simple, Sexy, and Stunning."

Chocolate Pie Chart: Definitely one of the nerdiest on the list. Chocolate makers should produce their summary financials in their annual reports in this fashion.

Fat Pig Chocolate: For all you fatties out there.

Chocarome Chocolate: Lovely to see how the exterior mirrors the content. These chocolates are a gorgeous gradient of yummy goodness.

Awesome lighting at Lush Wines & Spirits' West Town location. It doubles as a drying rack and chandelier! Via Time Out Chicago.
