Refined simplicity and glamour is in the heart of Chanel's new holiday collection
Bringing us some holiday cheer
INTRODUCING LES ORNEMENTS DE CHANEL
The holidays are just around the corner and it's never too early to start planning your festive-inspired beauty looks ahead of time.
The deeply saturated pigments of the collection mimic one of Gabrielle Chanel's unexpected penchants: her love of ornaments. So, think precious golds, browns and reds, offset by plenty of shimmers for a glamorous holiday look.
Mademoiselle Chanel's love for aesthetic opulence was beautifully decorated in her apartment and Lucia Pica looked to the deep lacquer of Chinese Coromandel screens and shimmering gold leaves for inspiration.
Chanel's Global Creative Makeup and Colour Designer aimed to create a festive collection for a woman that is completely Chanel.
"She’s seeking timeless simplicity, but she also loves richness and glamour, modernity and grandeur."
A contemporary contrast between indulgent splendour and refined simplicity is carried through a range of Rouge Coco Gloss, Éclat Magnétique De Chanel (exclusive to the collection), Les 4 Ombres and Ombre Première eyeshadow palettes, nail lacquers and a limited edition range of the iconic Rouge Allure lipsticks.
"I wanted to express the idea of richness that particularly fits with the festive time of year — but a mastered and modern richness."
