Chanel Beauté Holiday 2012 - ÉCLATS DU SOIR DE CHANEL

The photos are here! We now have a first look at the Chanel Beauté Holiday 2012 collection. Intrigued by the alchemy of precious metals, Peter Philips, Creative Director of CHANEL Makeup, debuts a resplendent Holiday 2012 Collection, ÉCLATS DU SOIR DE CHANEL.  Gold and bronze shade harmonies dust eyes with festive shimmer, while soft beige, pinks and deep reds set face, lips and nails aglow.

Here’s a breakdown of the products:

Regard Signé de Chanel – Quadra Eye Shadow
This season’s eyeshadow palette is at once a gift, a jewel and the ideal accessory. Embossed with a quilted effect and the CC monogram, each powder eyeshadow is reminiscent of the classic Chanel jacket button. Deep, dense bronze-gold with a radiant sheen complements colours from violet-plum red to smoky taupe to pink, for the definitive look of holiday glamour. $65.00

Poudre Universelle Libre – Natural Finish Loose Powder
New peach shade lights the face with an incandescent warmth. $52.00

Chanel Beauté Holiday 2012 - ÉCLATS DU SOIR DE CHANEL

Rouge Allure Velvet – Luminous Matte Lip Colour
Bold and intense with a matte effect, deep burgundy or velvety pink gives lips luxurious colour. $32.50

Chanel Beauté Holiday 2012 - ÉCLATS DU SOIR DE CHANEL

I love that each holiday season gold plays a key role.  I’ve been waiting for months for the new Illustion d’Ombre in Apparence to come out – I can’t wait to wear it!  Fortunately, we don’t need to wait much longer, the ÉCLATS DU SOIR DE CHANEL will be available at CHANEL.com, CHANEL Boutiques and department stores in October 2012.

I’m in New York for Mercedes-Benz New York Fashion Week and all of the attendees are dressed in their finest which usually includes some form of Chanel (in some cases something Chanel-inspired). Though I’m not able to shoot ALL of the Chanel I see, here’s a little taste of the Chanel accessories and the lovely ladies who wear them. More to come in the following days and weeks!

Drop of Chanel N°5 – That’s All You Need

This video was uploaded by Chanel a while ago but then removed and then recently added again. Rather than featuring a famous face, the short film ad focuses on the iconic glass bottle. Chanel N°5 has been around so long that not much needs to be said – the fragrance can speak for itself – and in this ad it does…

Fashion’s Night Out – Les Twin-Sets de Chanel

les twin sets de chanel fno
This year Chanel did not have any actual events at their NYC boutiques, instead they launched Les Twin-Sets de Chanel to commemorate FNO and were open a bit later. I stopped by the boutique to see the colors first hand and they were very pretty up close and personal. I was able to only get one photo before the security guard informed me that I couldn’t take photos so sadly, I did not get a picture of the lipsticks. If you live near a Chanel boutique I would definitely stop in to see the new colors – I especially love La Provocante & Provocation. Which are your favorites?

Chanel Video: Le Baudruchage – CHANEL N°5

chanel le baudruchage
Luxury is in all of the details…

Baudruchage, the final touch to an exquisite creation. In this meticulous procedure, a delicate seal, the “baudruche,” is placed around the neck of the bottle’s stopper. It is held in place with two rows of cotton thread and secured with a wax stamp bearing the double C. Only a handful of artisans, working within the CHANEL studio, know how to perform this precise art.

Keira Knightley in Chanel Couture at Anna Karenina Premiere

Last night Keira Knightley wore Chanel Haute Couture for the London premiere of her newest film, Anna Karenina. The cream, sheer, floral gown was from the Chanel Fall 2012 Haute Couture collection. She looked lovely and wore the it well. I love the dress but I don’t love the belt – on the runway or off. Either way, she still looks gorgeous in Chanel.

Chanel Rouge Allure Luminous Intense Lip Color Collection

Chanel Rouge Allure Luminous Intense Lip Color Collection
New ROUGE ALLURE Luminous Intense Lip Colour represents the next generation of the classic ROUGE ALLURE lipstick. Its stunning colour is the result of a concentration of ultra-thin pigments, specially designed to magnify shade intensity. Lighter hues have a unique presence, revealing nuances and depth. Darker tones heighten the drama, with audacity and pure elegance for an ultra-feminine effect.

Colour brilliance is only part of the story of new ROUGE ALLURE Luminous Intense Lip Colour. Special hydrating agents and antioxidants, rich in green tea and sappan wood, leave lips supple and protected for lasting comfort, while tea butter ensures colour endures for the ultimate wear. A range of sixteen seductively intense shades, from a delicate beige to a black-red.

Chanel Rouge Allure Luminous Intense Lip Color Collection

ROUGE ALLURE Luminous Intense Lip Colour retails for $34.00 and is available now at CHANEL.com, CHANEL Boutiques and department stores. You can read a review of the Chanel Rouge Allure Luminouse Intense Lip Color Collection on MISS.
