CHANEL · Éclat et Transparence, Cruise 2018 Collection

 

The newest release from CHANEL, Éclat et Transparence Cruise 2018, draws inspiration from the gorgeous sheer effect produced by the interplay of shadow & light, and I have most of the collection to show you here today. The textures and colours of Summer — warm air, rippling water, and hazy filtered light, are all so beautifully represented and form the key to understanding these pieces: it’s about the application, and more importantly, layering. Plus, everything is just so gorgeous …

CHANEL · Le Vernis 2018

 

I’ve never made my love of CHANEL a secret, and while I can wax poetic on basically everything this brand has to offer, I have to confess that in the nail polish department, this venerable house has sometimes come up short. Not that it’s stopped me from obsessively collecting every shade produced, mind you. But that was then … and this is now, and it’s a really, really, good now. Recently launched, CHANEL has created 6 new Le Vernis shades that in my opinion, are definitely investment-worthy.

In 2013 when CHANEL launched Les Beiges, to say that the concept turned out to be iconic wouldn’t be an overstatement, and since then the brand has continued to add something to the range every year.

CHANEL · Coco Mademoiselle Eau de Parfum Intense

 

The third iteration in the series, Coco Mademoiselle Eau de Perfume Intense has grown up and evolved … much like Keira Knightly — the face of this fragrance for a decade now — has, as well. With its unique mix of seductive playfulness and elegant sophistication, perfumer Olivier Polge has created a fragrance worthy of the brand’s storied history, but more importantly, has also created something that just smells so.damn.good. (PS: I’m not going to lie: I actually squealed in delight when I saw the little makeup bag and notebook included in the press kit).
