Guerlain · Gold Wish 2021 Holiday Collection

 

 

The exquisiteness of Guerlain’s Gold Wish 2021 Holiday Collection has left me speechless, as this capsule collection so perfectly embodies the spirit of the holiday season while being utterly wearable at the same time. Then there’s the off the chart display factor …

CHANEL Fall-Winter 2021 · Tone On Tone Collection

 

I know it’s still summer, but beauty marches to its own calendar … case in point: today’s post on CHANEL’s Fall-Winter 2021 Tone On Tone Collection. With a focused colour palette, this collection is about a hushed kind of harmony, and while winter might be in its name, to me this grouping seems like it’s encapsulating fall’s full splendour — which is what I’ll be going with, as I’m nowhere near ready to even think of cold weather.

CHANEL · Eyes Campaign 2021

 

CHANEL recently released the Eyes 2021 Campaign, a capsule collection which features seven new eyeliners added to the existing lineup, along with two new eyeshadow palettes.

CHANEL · Backstage Beauty Fall-Winter 2021/22 Haute Couture

 

It seemed only fitting that CHANEL’s recent Fall/Winter 2021-2022 Haute Couture show was held at the Palais Galleria, City of Paris Fashion Museum, especially considering that paintings from the Belle Époque (19th century) were the inspiration behind the collection, in particular works from two female artists — Berthe Morisot and Marie Laurencin. Interestingly, both makeup and hair had a strong edge, an effect that toned down the softness of the pieces and gave the looks an overall rock & roll vibe which I personally found so fresh and, well … cool.

CHANEL Cruise 2021/22 Collection · Backstage Beauty

 

 

This past May 3rd, CHANEL presented its Cruise 2021-2022 Collection, with Virginie Viard once again turning to Gabrielle Chanel’s personal archives for inspiration. Held at Carrières de Lumières in Les Baux-de-Provence (South of France), this former quarry with its towering stone-cut walls, instantly calls to mind ancient Egyptian structures (no? just me?). So totally unique and absolutely impressive … and now I absolutely want to go there.
