CHANEL · Rêve de Chanel

 

The latest collection from CHANEL draws inspiration from the world of dreams & imagination — and probably sorbet ice cream too, in my opinion. With warmer weather around the corner, it seems so right to break out the pastels and you can bet that I’ll be rocking these all. That said, can first we have a moment of silent admiration for the perfection of this highlighter? Utterly swoon-worthy.

Dior · Rouge Dior Floral Care Lip Balm

 

Dior has added to the Rouge Dior family with the recent launch of the Floral Care Lip Balms. Available in 3 finishes (satin, matte & velvet), something tells me that these are about to become my new bff’s, especially now that mask mandates are starting to lift. The fact that they’re also refillable only sweetens the deal, wouldn’t you agree?

CHANEL has recently entered a more mindful approach to beauty with the launch of their N°1 range of both skincare and makeup. Upon hearing nothing but raves about the products, I picked up the foundation and a lip/cheek balm to try out but spoiler: I’m impressed enough to want to go back for more.

CHANEL · La Pausa de CHANEL Spring-Summer 2022 Collection

 

In the 1920’s, Gabrielle Chanel chose idyllic Roquebrune-Cap-Martin on the Côte d’Azur to build her elegant villa, La Pausa — which also serves as inspiration for the Spring-Summer 2022 Collection. All the pieces are imbued with the earthy tones and sparkling light of the French Riviera, and in my honest opinion, this has to be one of CHANEL’s best releases to date … but fair warning: EVERYTHING is limited edition (*crying internally).

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.
