For Spring 2009, Chanel’s Global Creative Makeup Director, Peter Phillips, has created a “boho-chic” look. The collection includes two new nail lacquers including Django (beige pink), which was seen on the runways of Paris last September.
While delving through the house archives, Peter Philips, Global Creative Makeup Director for CHANEL, rediscovered gypsy dresses by Gabrielle Chanel. â€œThe Gypsy is a heroine with very distinctive beauty codes,â€ explains Peter Philips. â€œAfter looking through the sketches by Mademoiselle Chanel, I also wanted to play with all of these contrasts. The gypsyâ€™s eyes are as dark as her lips are fiery. She has the passion of travel in her veins, that of celebration, dance, and especially that of darkness and mystery.â€
I was wondering when we’d finally see a purple nail from Chanel and Vendetta (dark violet) is the answer to that question.
Now I don’t know about you but I’m a sucker for packaging so when I saw the LÃˆVRES SIGNÃ‰ES CHANEL Satin Lip Colour, I just about died. Who wouldn’t want to pull that from their purse and just stare?
Itâ€™s CHANEL lip colour as youâ€™ve never seen it. Five lush satin lip creme shades, from pale pink to deep plum, form the legendary double C signature in a black lacquered case. Complete with a rich velvet pouch and brush applicator, the compact is the epitome of glamour.
The Chanel Spring 2009 is scheduled to hit counters in January ’09 but it’s already been popping up on counters around the country. Chanel LE VERNIS Nail Colour retails for $23 and the LÃˆVRES SIGNÃ‰ES CHANEL Satin Lip Colour retails for $60.
