CHANEL · Les Beiges 2019 Collection

Les Beiges from CHANEL is probably the collection I anticipate the most, and this year’s grouping is majorly exceeding ALL my expectations. From the classic packaging to the utterly wearable shades, this entire collection has my name written all over it. Actually, it has Coco Chanel’s name written all over it, but you know what I mean.

CHANEL Vision d’Asie: Lumière et Contraste Cruise 2019 Collection

“A woman is only as good as the light & peace she radiates” (Coco Chanel)

In her second homage that’s inspired by the interplay of light captured throughout her photographic journey of East Asia, CHANEL’s makeup director Lucia Pica has created a collection that can be summed up in two words: easy glamour. With Summer just around the corner, these are exactly the types of products I’m all about — fuss-free yet still put together, and in my opinion, no one does that better than CHANEL.

CHANEL · Rouge Coco Flash

CHANEL recently launched Rouge Coco Flash replacing the original Rouge Coco Shine range … and I’m so down for these lippies. With the iconic double C’s standing out thanks to new transparent caps and with a texture that has a lock on shine + comfort, I do believe I may have found my Summer faves … that will take me well into the other seasons too, I might add.

CHANEL Backstage Beauty · Ready-To-Wear Autumn/Winter 2019

This past March 5th, the last collection created by the late Karl Lagerfeld for the House of CHANEL (Ready-To-Wear Autumn/Winter 2019) was held at the Grand Palais, with the venue transformed into a magical alpine scene and the theme of the show feeling quite fittingly like this legendary man’s Wintery swan-song. Devoted to all aspects of the glam chalet life, the creations drew their inspiration not only from the season, but heritage fabrics as well. Observing a minute of silence at the start, the rest of the show stayed true to Lagerfeld’s vision and left the entire audience speechless. The finale had emotions running high and tears were definitely flowing, but in the end it was a celebration — an homage to the creative genius of this one man who transformed the world of fashion, and whose touch will continue to be felt for generations to come.

CHANEL · Quintessence & Platine Bronze, Vision d’Asie Spring Summer 2019 Collection

Several weeks ago I showed you CHANEL’s Spring/Summer 2019 launches — that is, all but the two pieces starring in today’s post. This 9-shadow palette is only the second in this format that the brand has ever created, and this beauty holds an interesting & unexpected mix of hues, while the accompanying cream shade has quickly risen through the ranks to be the one I currently reach for … over & over again.
