Tokyo shopping – vintage Chanel earrings

Faldt over de her fine, forgyldte Chanel-ørenringe i en lille kommissions-genbrugsbutik (og dem er der mange af, skulle jeg hilse og sige, for japanerne skyer gamle ting og kollektioner, og sælger løs for at få råd til det sidste nye) på en lille gade i det forstadskvarter i det nordlige Tokyo, hvor vi boede.

Jeg er ellers ikke til clipsørenringe, men de her sidder som en drøm. Via stemplet bagpå (P 96) kan jeg se at de er fra forårskollektionen 96. Det bliver ikke mere 90’er og logo-agtigt, så de skal vist akkompagneres af et enkelt,  sort outfit og et minimum af anden tingeltangel. Pris ca. 500 kroner.

English: I spotted these Chanel earrings in a little consignment shop (and there are a whole lot of those all over Japan, as a lot of Japanese wouldn’t be caught dead wearing last year’s collections) in the suburbian area in northern Tokyo, where we stayed most of the time.

I normally don’t like clip-on earrings, but these are so comfortable. The stamp on the back says P 96, meaning they are from the spring (Printemps) collection of ’96. They scream LOGO, LOGO, LOGO so I think I’ll wear them with an understated, monochrome outfit. Price: around 57 pounds.
