CHANEL · Le Vernis, Collection Chiffrée

 

The recently launched Collection Chiffrée from CHANEL may be small as far as releases go, but no less impressive just the same … not to mention selling out at lightning speed. With inspiration culled from Gabrielle Chanel’s life, each of the lacquers in this collection bears a number that played a significant role for Mademoiselle; Nº19 — in honour of her birthday (August 19), Nº22 — for the year the namesake fragrance was created, and Nº31 — to commemorate the House’s address on Rue Cambon, Paris. Interestingly, but perhaps not surprisingly, all three are in shades of green, albeit trust CHANEL to give this often hard-to-wear hue a fresh new vibe.

But there’s a catch: this treasure will be available for one day only, Cyber Monday (November 27th) — although it will make a reappearance later on ∗insert massive sigh of relief∗

CHANEL · Chiffres Entrelacés Healthy Glow Luminous Colour

 

Inspired by the power of numbers that were held most dear to Mademoiselle, CHANEL just launched Chiffres Entrelacés Healthy Glow Luminous Colour, part of the limited edition Collection Chiffrée. Displaying an intricately-wrought pattern which retraces all the iconic numbers from the life of Gabrielle Chanel, I almost couldn’t bear to mar its pristine surface with a brush … but I’m so, so glad I did.

Christian Louboutin Metalissime Rouge Louboutin Collection

 

There’s luxury beauty … and then there’s Christian Louboutin Beauté. With an ‘Ali Baba’s’ cave of beautiful objects at his disposal to draw inspiration from — as well as to gift his loved ones (so need to get my name on that list) — the designer recently launched Rouge Louboutin Metalissime, a limited edition capsule collection in time for the holidays. You better pray you’re not on the naughty list.
