CHANEL · Les Beiges Summer 2022 Collection

 

If I had to pick one range from CHANEL that I absolutely adore, then that has to be Les Beiges and this year’s collection is all about that carefree summer glow from head to toe … in an oversize fashion, I might add. Let’s just say that I’m definitely going to indulge in a CHANEL summer.

CHANEL · Backstage Beauty Cruise 2022/23 Collection

 

CHANEL’s recent Cruise 2022/23 Collection was held at the scenic Beach Hotel in Monaco, with the venue being a place the late Karl Lagerfeld long creamed of, especially since his beautiful villa was just steps away. Inspired by the elegant yet sporty atmosphere both seen & felt in this principality, the beauty look created for the show was effortless, breezy, and sunshine-filled. In other words, 100% French-girl chic … and a look that I intend to totally appropriate all summer long.

CHANEL Backstage Beauty · Fall-Winter 2022/23 Ready To Wear

 

Turning a Scottish classic into a luxury icon, CHANEL’s recent Fall-Winter 2022/23 Ready-to-Wear Collection paid tribute to all things tweed — even the venue was swathed in the fabric. Gorgeous accessories and runway pieces aside, the beauty look was minimal yet so fresh, with cheeks looking flushed with colour as though kissed by a walk through the moors. Groomed brows, a ‘just-bitten’ look to lips, and neutral nails, the eyes were loaded up with mascara (but not overly clumpy) to complete the look, and I’m living for the effortlessly cool effect. Pretty sure this will be my go-to from now on.

CHANEL · Backstage Beauty Métiers d’Art Show 2021

 

Every year CHANEL pays tribute to the virtuoso hands behind all the exquisite details that go into each creation with the Métiers d’Art show, with the 2021/22 Collection held at Le 19M — the new venue where all of the Maison’s artisans are currently housed. Initiated by Coco Chanel herself, this endeavour helps to preserve the incredible skills of several hundred artisans, while also shaping new specialists to further these time-honoured traditions. The beauty look was both avant-garde and timeless … and you can bet that I’ll be trying my hand to recreate it. Wish me luck.

CHANEL SS22 Ready-To-Wear · Backstage Beauty

 

CHANEL’s recent Spring-Summer 2021 Ready-To-Wear runway show was held in a temporary location near famous Paris landmark, Les Invalides, and paid homage to the 90s supermodel days as the models bounded down the catwalk while vamping it up for the photographer mosh pit at the end. In contrast to all that glam, makeup was soft, wearable and just so perfectly pretty, paired with minimal hair to keep everything balanced. Not surprising, nails sported CHANEL’s iconic Ballerina — aka: the shade of choice for the majority of the brand’s shows, and I’m ok with that as since this has long been one of my absolute faves to wear … I’m happy seeing more eclectic shades with any upcoming beauty collections!
