OPI · Malibu Summer 2021 Collection

 

Fall is a couple of days away and while I’m all for transitioning into autumnal shades, I’m still not ready to let summer go … and so I’ll cap off the season with OPI’s Malibu Summer 2021 Collection and these 12 shades which totally took me by surprise. And I mean that in the best way, of course.

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 · 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 Les Beiges 2021 Summer Light

 

 

I have been a fan of the Les Beiges range since its launch back in 2013 (seriously: plug in “CHANEL Les Beiges” in my search bar to see what I mean) and that love affair continues with the recently released Summer Light 2021 Collection. Something about the entirely effortless vibe of the pieces — coupled with how beautifully everything performs — and I’m 100% here for it. ALL of it.

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.
