For the “Metiers D’Art” fashion show in Shanghai, Peter Philips, Global Creative Director of Chanel Makeup, created an exclusive collection, Noir Et Or. The collection is a glamorous fantasy of Shanghai in the 30’s and 40’s as Coco Chanel herself may have imagined it. The black and gold eyes and nails complimented the gilded and jet black accents shown on the runway.
Like the Paris-Moscou Collection, the Noir Et Or Paris-Shanghai Collection is a limited edition set of colors taken straight from the runway. I have to admit I’m a bit surprised to see Chanel coming out with a matte polish at this point in the game. They’ve always been trendsetters not followers so I’m curious to see how Black Velvet is received.
Le Vernis Nail Colour in Black Velvet – Matte black nail color in a frosted bottle ($25.00)
Le Vernis Nail Colour in Gold Lamé – Satiny gold nail color ($25.00)
Le Vernis Nail Colour in Illusion d‘or – Transparent sparkling gold nail color ($25.00)
Ligne et Ombre de Chanel in Jet-Gold - Matte black eyeliner and sparkling gold eyeshadow ($45.00)
The Noir Et Or Paris-Shanghai Collection launches in April 2010. It will be carried exclusively at Chanel.com, Chanel Boutiques and Chanel Makeup Studios.
What do you think Fanatics? Do any of these LE shades have you excited? How do you feel about Chanel releasing a matte polish?
