A new column on Fashion Unfiltered in which social media sensation @Choupettesdiary, famed for bringing to life the persona of Karl Lagerfeld’s feline darling, Choupette, offers up her weekly musings. Catch the best of Instagram, Twitter, Snapchat, and more through this pussy’s baby blues, below.
Between H&M announcing its latest collaboration and Lily-Rose Depp puckering up for an oversized bottle of Chanel No. 5 L’Eau, Instagram has been abuzz this week. I’ve hardly had time for catnaps due to FOMO that another designer would take to social media to break news. Luckily, Swarovski distracted me with shiny things on Snapchat, so my baby blues didn’t get tired of scrolling my newsfeed. Here, for your reading pleasure, I’ve brought you the best of the week in social media.
Lily-Rose Depp Joins My Chanel Family
Instagram was abuzz with announcements Monday. Following Rousteing’s big news, Lily-Rose Depp snapped a shot with the new Chanel N°5 L’Eau. I am thrilled to welcome a new human into my Chanel kin, especially one who has her name tatted on her daddy’s chest. If only I could get Daddy Karl Lagerfeld to do the same for moi…
Olivier Rousteing Sports Golden NikeLab Balls
Taking to Instagram, Balmain announced Olivier Rousteing’s latest collaboration with NikeLab, which includes golden balls (sort of). While I am not one who sports athletic apparel, I appreciate seeing Cristiano Ronaldo’s bulging biceps on my Instagram newsfeed.
Swarovski Shines (Like a Ball of Tinfoil) on Snapchat
Snaps for Swarovski for joining Snapchat. The newest social media platform, Snapchat is quickly gaining momentum among the fashion set and everyone is eager to be an early adopter. This is one app I will be stalking but not showing face on. My blue eyes look far too perfect to shoot flames or cry fake mascara smears. No filter needed.
Kenzo Takes a Cue From Daddy Karl
It all started with Daddy Karl Lagerfeld, who paved the way for hi/low designer collaborations. Now, Parisian label Kenzo has made its H&M collab official on Instagram. That’s the human equivalent to “Facebook Official” but cooler, oui?
Balenciaga’s Pre-Fall 2016 Instagram Mystery
With a strong Vetements vibe, Balenciaga debuted its Pre-Fall 2016 collection on Instagram. I don’t consider myself a fashion history buff but I do keep a paw on the comings and goings of creative directors. Yet, I find myself scratching my head at the mystery designer behind the Pre-Fall collection. Was it the work of an internal team as the press release says, or is this Demna Gvasalia’s doing? The world may never know…until Balenciaga posts another Instagram photo.
