Chanel Fall-Winter 2012/13 Ready-to-Wear Beauty

Chanel Fall Winter 2012 2013 Ready to Wear Beauty

The makeup at the Chanel Fall-Winter 2012/13 Ready-to-Wear show was very minimal with all emphasis drawn to the distinguished eyebrows on the models. From far away, the look was a bit curious but close up, the look is nothing short of spectacular. The crystallized eyebrows were made by Maison Lesage, the embroidery house purchased by Chanel as part of PARAFFECTION -a plan to keep the artisanal trades alive. I love that Karl Lagerfeld and Peter Philips decided to play up a feature like eyebrows in a new and unexpected way. I’m just wondering how this look will trickle down to the streets. Until we figure out a way to crystallize our eyebrows we’ll have to be content with Notorious (face) and Frenzy (nails) – two new hit colors for Fall-Winter 2012/13.

Peter Philips, Creative Director of CHANEL Makeup on the look he created for the Chanel Fall-Winter 2012/13 Ready-to-Wear show:

The inspiration for the makeup look came from a few key words and a sketch that Karl Lagerfeld provided: minerals, shading and eyebrows were the key words and the sketch showed a face with stone-lined eyebrows.

So the focus is on the eyebrows, which led me to interpret Karl’s drawing and the “mineral” emphasis by creating straight, graphic eyebrows.

I worked with the Maison Lesage to create sets of embroidered eyebrows. Each eyebrow consists of an anthracite gray sequins and pearl base, embroidered with several sorts and shades of mineral stones and crystals.

For the makeup in general, I wanted a matte finished skin and used CHANEL’s Mat Lumière foundation. The shading and sculpting of the face was achieved with Ombre Contraste a compact specially created for this show. The compact powder is a lavender/taupe coloured shade called Notorious that I applied to the eyelids and then straight down on the side of the face, in a contouring style. The rest of the face I kept nude, so as to keep the focus on the eyebrows.

For the nails I chose the new shade of Le Vernis called Frenzy (Fall 2012 Collection), which is totally colour coordinated with Notorious.

Chanel Fall-Winter Ready-to-Wear 2012 Invitation Sneak Peek

chanel fall winter 2012 ready to wear invitation sneak peek

Chanel posted an image as a teaser of the upcoming show tomorrow and all I can make out are crystals. It seems that Karl Lagerfeld has been really inspired by natural beauty for the ready-to-wear collections. Last fall we saw the scorched earth, for this spring we were taken under the sea and for Fall 2012? All I know is that crystals will be involved – can’t wait to see!

Chanel Allure Homme Sport Eau Extrême Ad Campaign

chanel allure homme sport eau extreme kathryn bigelow danny fuller

Chanel has linked up with surfer Danny Fuller and Academy Award winning director Kathryn Bigelow for the Chanel Allure Homme Sport Eau Extrême ad campaign.  The stills and film are in black and white and feature Danny Fuller doing what he does best.  I especially love the male voice over saying the name of the fragrance – very sexy.  I might have to get this for my husband.

The Chanel Allure Homme Sport Eau Extrême will officially begin to run in April, but Chanel dropped some sneak peeks today. On choosing to work with Kathryn Bigelow, Christine Dagousset, executive vice president of fragrance and beauté of Chanel stated:

Kathryn Bigelow has an amazing vision and ability to direct action-filled moments…In addition to ‘The Hurt Locker,’ she also directed the surf film ‘Point Break.’ She was the best person to direct this type of campaign, especially because of her affinity for the sport of surfing. Because Allure Homme Sport Eau Extrême is the extreme version of the classic Allure Homme, the new concentration was meant to be more edgy, avant-garde and take more risks. This campaign does, as well. (WWD).

Chanel nose Jacques Polge created the new scent which has notes of mint, clary sage, black pepper from Madagascar, tonka bean and sandalwood.  Chanel Allure Homme Sport Eau Extrême is available in two sizes: 1.7 oz. for $62 and 3.4 oz. for $84.
