Chanel Les Khakis De Chanel Preview

Ever since UK nail queen Sophy Robson posted a sneak peek at the CHANEL Les Khakis De Chanel collection colors, I’ve been DYING to get some sort of official word regarding their launch. What Sophy originally dubbed the “camouflage collection” is a set of three military shades debuting as a limited edition launch for Fashion’s Night Out on September 10th!

Visit the Chanel Boutique on Spring Street to get a complimentary manicure with one of the Les Khakis De Chanel shades or stop by the Madison Avenue boutique which will be selling the collection as well.

In celebration of Vogue’s Fashion’s Night Out, Peter Philips, Global Creative Director of CHANEL Makeup, has created LES KHAKIS DE CHANEL, a collection of three Le Vernis Nail Colours. Ultra sophisticated shades Khaki Rose, Khaki Brun and Khaki Vert can be worn alone or combined for an urban chic camouflage effect.

The Les Khakis De Chanel collection launches on September 10th, 2010.  It will be available at CHANEL boutiques, and select department stores for $25.00/bottle.

You KNOW I’m all over Khaki Vert but I’m excited to see how they’ll look paired together.  I’m already thinking up some fun way to wear all three while I’m in NYC for FNO.  Which colors are you excited to see?  Will any of my NYC Fanatics be out and about for FNO? Do you think these colors will get the same attention as last year’s FNO color Jade?

    Ooooh I like! I wonder when we will get them in the UK.

  2. Sophie says:

    I just squealed when I saw Khaki Vert – I need that nail polish. Do you know if it’s Sept 10th release in UK also? Please say it is!

  3. Sandi says:

    Le Khaka. Chanel has some beautiful shades but these are just blah.

  4. Lauren says:

    Intriguing. Can’t wait to see if they’re all dupes or unique. It’s way too hard to tell from a promo pic. Khaki Vert looks like it could resemble Essie Sew Psyched from the fall collection.

  5. Z says:

    are you *sure* they’ll be avail online? last I asked Sophy she wasn’t sure. Just trying to make sure us nail fanatics that don’t live in NYC anymore will get a shot to order these. Thanks!

    • All Lacquered Up says:

      The info I posted came directly from Chanel PR. I’m not sure what select department stores means so I’ve asked for clarification and will post when I hear back. Now I can’t comment on International ordering but according to Chanel in the US the colors will be available online in the States.

  6. Cee says:

    I’m not really excited about any of the colors… but I’ll see when the swatches come out :)

  7. Heather says:

    Ooooooh that Vert just screams my name!

  8. Z says:

    Thanks Michelle!

  9. Nail Galore says:

    they are so gorgeous! Just the way i like my nails to be. Unfortunetely im sure its gonna be at least 3 months before its released in Malaysia:-(
    Cant wait to see your swatches on them:-)

  10. Kitty says:

    I’ll wait for swatches. It’s hard to say if I’ll like it with just the bottle pic especially in those colors.

  11. Andrea says:

    Thanks for informing us of these. The first I’ve heard of this Chanel polish collection. I’m excited for Khaki Vert! I love army green nail shades. I don’t think any of the colours will get the attention that Jade did. Jade is such a special colour on the nail, in my opinion :)

  12. Karennicole says:

    That Khaki Vert looks like the TRUTH! I love it. I think it would look great with darker skin tones like mine!

  14. Susanna says:

    I wonder how close the Vert is to the new Sew Psyched from Essie?

  15. Kelsey says:

    I have died and gone to neutral heaven!!!

  16. Abby says:

    Really hoping Khaki Vert will be similar to Essie’s Sew Psyched, otherwise I might have to drop the cash for it!

  17. coco says:

    ooo I wonder how you could paint a camouflage pattern so you can wear all three at the same time?

  18. Rachel says:

    Ha I’m pretty sure I have old Sally Hansens I bought at Dollar Tree that are similar to these. Hi 1990s! I missed you.

  19. Pammy says:

    Thank you! I’ve been going nuts looking for info on these bottles, I want them :D

  20. Kirsten says:

    What about RBL Diddy Mow or one of the other RBL greens maybe? Khaki Vert seems like its somewhere between Diddy Mow and No More War. I think Sew Psyched is a bit lighter and doesn’t have as much brown to it as Khaki Vert. However Chanel promo pics like this are usually really different from the actual polish. To me Paradoxal ended up looking nothing like its promo pic suggested although it is a tough shade to capture so who knows what these will turn out like? I still love Paradoxal. It just wasn’t what I expected.

    These are definitely wait and see the swatches first for me. I seldom pass up a Chanel, but I won’t be buying these until I see swatches of what they actually look like. I’m dying to see how these turn out! I love a green!

  21. avroys says:

    Wow – I love the look of these. With Khaki Rose in my collection my cool-toned self will finally own something khaki besides my combat trousers!

  22. Katarina says:

    I LOVE ALL 3of them! WANT WANT WANT!!!

  23. Lauren says:

    Meh. I’m very underwhelmed. And I’m a Chanel NP addict. And still…meh.

    Maybe I’ll sing a different rune after seeing some swatches.

  24. GMiami says:

    Loving these colors. I can’t wait to get my hands on them!!! :)

  25. KatieM says:

    Generally not a Chanel fan (consistent formula?) but I love all of these colors. Perfect for a Fall Multi-Colored Ombre Manicure but $75 requires a review of the formula and swatches. Thanks for the sneak peek.

  26. Melanie says:

    The colors are absolutly gorgeus!! They loke very allike as the Essie Fall collecion. Are your planing some swatches?

  27. Melanie says:

    I love this colors. They are very similar as essie Fall collection. Are you thinking to make a swatch about them?
    But they are expensive, no worder they have the Chanel logo!!

  28. Shannon says:

    I don’t think Canada’s getting these. I just emailed my local counter and they’re not getting them at all. BOO!

  29. Courtney N says:

    Love the Khaki Vert!! I would lovvvve to go to FNO in NYC but I’m not. I’m also from Cleveland, and the closest FNO event for me is at Saks in Beachwood!

  30. isnotfashion says:

    what about essie’s fall green and merino cool? seems so similar!

    • lia says:

      that’s exactly what i thought when i saw them – Essie’s Sew Psyched looks like a dupe for Khaki Vert, and Essie’s Merino Cool looks like a dupe for Khaki Rose…

  31. Tara says:

    Hey Michelle!

    I just wanted to say that I love your blog and that these colors are pretty amazing!!! I really can’t afford chanel’s though, I wonder if there are alternatives- dupes, layering experiments out there that you’ve heard of?

    Also, I’m doing a giveaway on my blog, feel free to follow and enter!

    Thanks for having such a great blog!!

    They look nice!
    Have you seen the nail polish from the Soho collection, Steel and Strong? I can’t find much info about it.
    It seems they will only be sold in New York! So disappointed!
