New: CHANEL Métiers d’Art 2021 Backstage Beauty

The recent CHANEL Métiers d’Art 2021 Collection was intended to be viewed in person at the 16th-century Château de Chenonceau (more commonly known as the “Château de Dames”) and while the runway show did indeed take place there, thanks to the current pandemic it ended up seen only virtually.

For the record, I’m LOVING every.single.piece.

CHANEL · Les Beiges 2020 Summer of Glow

Without a doubt, CHANEL’s Les Beiges is the collection I wait for all year round and have done so since its inception. The fact that it seems to launch around my birthday just makes it sweeter (coincidence?!). Something about the sleek beige packaging coupled with the whole summery vibe just speaks to me, and the 2020 iteration is no exception to that.
