THE F INISH ING TOUCHES
I SHOULD COCO…
‘I imposed black – it is still going strong today, for black wipes out everything else around.’ So said the inimitable Mme Chanel in the 1920s of her clever new creation, the LBD, which went on to become one of the most iconic looks of all time (see our fashion shoot in this issue). Her wisdom has certainly endured – joyous colours and patterns should definitely be embraced but sometimes, when you want to invest in a classic, only timeless, effortlessly chic black will do. It’s why I love the new jet-black version of Chanel’s Code Coco watch, which is designed to be super-modern but also wouldn’t look out of place on Madame’s own wrist. In an issue of Red dedicated to all things ‘smart’, I think it fits in perfectly.
