First Look: Chanel Bleu Illusion Makeup Collection

Back in January we got a sneak peak of Chanel’s Bleu Illusion makeup collection that debuted on the Chanel Haute Couture Spring-Summer 2012 runway. Peter Philips created a collection awash in blues and the new limited edition products are: Illusion D’Ombre Shadow in Apparition (gray-ish blue), Illusion D’Ombre Shadow in Destination (silvery satin blue), Le Crayon Yeux Eyeliner in Blue Aerien (intense luminous blue), and Le Vernis Nail Polish in Sky Line. Describing Chanel Le Vernis Sky Line, Peter Philips stated: “It’s a beautiful, easy to apply, pearly- on the edge of metallic- shade that matched perfectly with the range of blues that Karl used for this haute couture collection.”

From the images the Bleu Illusion collection is very pretty but there’s a part of me that’s having horrible flashbacks of the 1980s and blue eyeshadow. I think in moderation this look can be really pretty and complements different eye colors. The Exclusive Collection BLEU ILLUSION will be available at specific points of sales in July 2012.

Chanel Cruise 2012/13 Making of the Press Kit & Final Press Kit Images

Cara Delevingne posed for Karl Lagerfeld for the Chanel Cruise 2012/13 press kit. I love this collection – everything about it is sweet and lovely. I love how full of color these photos are and I especially like how the gradient pastel backdrop enhances the pastels in the hair, makeup and clothing.

Chanel Paris-Bombay 2011/12 Métiers d’Art Accessories

Chanel Paris Bombay 2011 2012 Accessories

The Chanel Paris-Bombay 2011/12 Métiers d’Art collection hit stores last week and I can not wait to see these beauties in person! This is one of my favorite collections to date – the fusion of Chanel signatures with traditional Indian jewelry is gorgeous and makes for dramatic, statement pieces that would shine in your accessories collection. Since these pieces are new they won’t be included in the Chanel sale on the 14th but that doesn’t mean I won’t take a good look at them while I’m there!

Chanel Ephemeral Boutique Capri, Italy Summer 2012

On the heels of opening a pop-up shop at the Hotel La Mistralée in Saint-Tropez, last week Chanel opened an ephemeral boutique on the Italian island of Capri, a historically elite holiday retreat. In the same way that Coco Chanel chose exclusive vacation resorts as the locations of her boutiques, Chanel is focusing on the travel destinations of those who appreciate luxury and have money to burn.

“In the shade of the towering palm trees, guests will savour the exquisite scent of orange and lemon trees while cascades of jasmine perfume the air” as they peruse the Paris-Bombay 2012 Métiers d’Art pre-fall collection. The Chanel ephemeral boutique in Capri has a bohemian feel and is decorated with vintage trunks that perfectly accompany the Paris-Bombay collection.

Ephemeral Boutique
From June 4th to September 30th 2012
10am – 10pm
Via Camerelle, 14/b
Capri

Summer Chanel Ephemeral Boutique in St. Tropez
The Hotel La Mistralée in Saint-Tropez is home to a new Chanel Ephemeral boutique that will showcase the Chanel Paris-Bombay and the spring-summer 2012 collections. The XIX century architecture of the Hotel La Mistralée is juxtaposed with geometric patterns and bright colors reminiscent of the 1980s.

To commemorate the opening of the he Chanel Ephemeral boutique at the Hotel La Mistralée in Saint-Tropez Chanel created a limited edition beach tote bag complete with woven straw mat and towel. It’s been pretty much impossible to find a photo of this mysterious tote online but I’m trying to get one! I’ll update you if I find one. The boutique will be open until October 2012.

Chanel Cruise 2012/13 Details of the Collection Video

The Chanel Cruise 2012/13 collection was so breath-taking from afar so words can not describe what I felt when I watched the following video showcasing the details of the Chanel Cruise 2012/13 collection. The intricacy of the beading, fabrics, enamels is amazing. So much attention is paid to every little detail – you can see why wearing Chanel is the ultimate luxury. I also think the soundtrack is a lovely accompaniment to the look of the collection. View the video below – and keep a tissue handy in case your mouth starts watering like mine did!

Soundtrack:
