18 Monday, 27 July 2009 London Lite Chanel abitof Cocos style...Addsomeoohlltoyourlook BY REBECCA BOYCE THISWEEK lite loves Cut above: visit HG Walters site HersHis IN&OUTTONIGHT E VERY fashionista worth her monochrome quilted ballet pumps will be aware that this week sees the launch of the eagerly awaited film Coco Avant Chanel, starring Audrey Tautou as the iconic fashion designer. The impeccably stylish fashion house created by Gabrielle Coco Chanel in 1913 is responsible for a long line of wardrobe staples. The brand has a dedicated following of chic A-listers -- Lily Allen, Keira Knightley and Kylie are regularly snapped wearing Chanel. Theres never been a better time to channel a touch of Chanel into your wardrobe, so weve rounded up our favourite Coco-inspired items. The ultimate purchase is the elusive 2.55 quilted chain handbag but the hefty price tag leaves most of us still dreaming. Which is why we love the collaboration between Browns Focus and designer Oonagh OHagan -- fab shopper bags emblazoned with a huge 2.55 print for only 40. Other items on your Chanel hitlist should include monochrome ballet pumps. Step into yours at French Sole or Pretty Ballerinas, from 75. Follow Cocos man- tra and keep things simple but elegant in basic stripey breton tops from Petit Bateau (36). For French flair check out Antoni & Alisons quirky, navy- and-white striped swe at e r w i t h re d rosette detail (165) and Sonia by Sonia Rykiels fab breton top complete with pearl necklace embellishment (135, my-wardrobe.com). Finally, the most grown-up Chanel pur- chase you can make is the boucl or tweed jacket. Try Mango on the high street or Isabel Marant for more luxurious styles. MEATY GOODNESS FANCY some good sausage? Or just a nice joint? No, were not being impertinent, merely suggesting that the culinary- minded carnivores among you might like to check out the newly launched website from HG Walter (hgwalter.com), a family butcher who supplies the likes of The River Caf and Arbutus -- not to mention Michael Winner, who declared their sausages the best in London, if not the universe. Call before 10am to get your desired cut delivered that very day. AFTERNOON DELIGHT WE ALWAYS thought there was something a little bit saucy about afternoon tea and at the Met Bar theyre taking things a step further. Their Cour-tea-san De-Light Seduction Classes is an aphrodisiac-inspired version of their Afternoon De-Light tea and cocktails, in association with lingerie brand The Modern Courtesan. Guests include burlesque performers, erotic photographers and real-life courtesans. Call 020 7447 1025, or email jo.james@como.bz for tickets (50). SAVING THE PLANET CHUCKING out your chintz?
