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· Premières Fleurs Dernières Neiges Collection

 

If you’re following me on Instagram (and if not, come join me @ommorphia 🤗), then you most likely saw my Insta Story the other day on CHANEL’s latest Dernières Neiges Collection that I previewed — and in particular this Première Fleurs compact (CAN $80.00 limited edition) that generated such a frenzy. In part, it’s mainly because of all the messages about it that I received, which pushed me to get my review out early … but mainly it’s because I couldn’t wait to swatch and begin wearing this gem. Spoiler alert: so GORG.

CHANEL Neapolis: New City Spring/Summer 2018 – Eyes

 

For Spring/Summer 2018, CHANEL introduces Neapolis: New City, a collection that is inspired by Lucia Pica’s city of birth, Naples. The name pays homage to this city’s roots as an ancient Greek colony, while the colours draw on the incredibly lush Mediterranean landscape. Starting things off, are this trio for the eyes to bring out your inner (and outer) goddess — flowing robes & crown not included.
