CHANEL · Spring/Summer 2018 Haute Couture Beauty Edit

 

 

CHANEL’s recent Haute Couture show was nothing short of stunningly ethereal and truly seemed to symbolize the very essence of Spring. Held in Paris’ Grand Palais, the venue had been transformed into replicas of 17th century-style ponds and groves, complete with verdant greenery & splashing fountains, while the guests were seated on benches surrounding the gravel runways — the better to view the brilliant creations, obviously. Not to be outdone, the beauty look was fresh yet modern … and so totally wearable, although I’m now seriously considering adding a tulle headpiece to my repertoire.

CHANEL · Dernières Neiges Collection

 

CHANEL’s Dernières Neiges Collection is filled with an ethereal watercolour beauty as well as the promise of Spring … and about as lovely as a collection can get. Rose tones which add such a brightening effect, play a starring role along with texture and formula variations — but the real story is in how beautifully everything works, whether you opt for just one piece or the entire lot (although something tells me you’ll want it all).

CHANEL Neapolis: New City Spring/Summer 2018 – Le Vernis

CHANEL · Le Vernis, Numéros Rouge Collection Libre 2017

 

 

 

Wrapping up my reviews on CHANEL’s Numéros Rouge Collection Libre for Holiday 2017 with this unique — and somewhat puzzling — trio of nail lacquers. Straddling the border between urban & festive, each shade offers a new take on the traditional holiday fare: a deep moody green, a hot neon, and a lush jelly-like black. Trust, CHANEL to make you look twice.

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.
