CHANEL · Eyes Collection 2018

 

For CHANEL’s Eyes Collection 2018, Lucia Pica (the brand’s Global Creative Makeup & Colour Designer), drew inspiration from the magic of the night — in particular the way colours can both hide and reveal themselves, whether under artificial or natural lighting. The interplay of colour and texture is at the heart of this collection, but in my opinion, the true beauty is in how wearable everything is.

CHANEL · Les Eaux de Chanel

 

Summer 2018 brings us Les Eaux de CHANEL, three new fragrance launches from the venerable house that draw their inspiration from Gabrielle Chanel’s favourite places. Created by master perfumer Olivier Polge, each is an olfactory journey — but in a fresh & lighter-weight form … and absolute perfection to wear with Summer’s heat still upon us, although something tells me I’ll be reaching for these long into the cooler months that are ahead.

CHANEL · Apotheosis Le Mat de CHANEL, Fall/Winter 2018

 

For Fall/Winter 2018, CHANEL is revisualizing matte in a whole new way via the Apotheosis Le Mat de CHANEL Collection. Autumn’s earthy hues are reinvented and given a modern vibe — and while matte reigns supreme here, the finishes have been softened and almost blurred, providing a lushness to the textures that make them in turn utterly feminine, and yet so absolutely powerful. Provocative, done in true CHANEL style.

CHANEL · Nº5 L’Eau All-Over Spray & On Hand Cream

 

I’ve always been that girl who has wanted so badly to wear CHANEL’s original Nº5 perfume, but have never been able to — although I’m still holding out hope for a future point where the two of us will see eye to eye. That’s why when Nº5 L’Eau launched in 2016, my prayers were answered: here was a Nº5 version that fitted me perfectly. For Summer 2018, Olivier Polge, the ‘nose’ behind this iteration, has created a fun new way to sport this fresh scent, launching the All-Over Spray and matching Hand On Cream … and I’m betting that both are going to be spot-on perfect for the season.

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 …
