Peter Philips created another gorgeous makeup collection to compliment Karl Lagerfeld’s Chanel Métiers D’Art Paris-Bombay 2012 presentation. The ubiquitous kohl-rimmed eyes so popular in the South East was reinterpreted for the runway and were the main focus on the face. Lips and cheeks were kept minimal and natural and all of the emphasis was on the very dark eyes.
Several limited edition products were created for the “Bombay Express” collection including POUDRE COMPACTE in Route des Indes de CHANEL, ILLUSION D’OMBRE Long Wear Luminous Eyeshadow in Nirvana, JOUES CONTRASTE Powder Blush in Brume d’Or, ROUGE COCO SHINE Hydrating Sheer Lipshine in Empreinte and LE VERNIS Nail Colour in Diwali. I am most excited about Illusion d’Ombre in Nirvana and Le Vernis in Diwali. Based on the glimpses we saw on the runway, I’m guessing that Nirvana will be black – though I’m wondering how different it will be to Mirifique. Diwali or the “festival of lights” is one of the most joyous celebrations in India. Based on the runway images Le Vernis Diwali looks goldish-luminiscent and based on the name I can imagine the color was inspired by lights. The Exclusive Creation Collection Chanel ‘Bombay Express’ will be available in select Chanel makeup counters in June 2012.
Here are the details from Chanel on the products used to create the look:
