Sure, a black 2.55 is timeless, but any brand designed by a man so awe-inspiringly talented that he can get away with walking a red carpet drinking his very own Coca-Cola Light is bound to have plenty more to offer beyond just luxe quilted classics. Here are 5 things we're obsessing about from Chanel’s vast arsenal of offerings:
Chanel Makeup creative director Peter Philips created a natural makeup look with more-perfect-than-perfect skin at this season’s Chanel 2012 Cruise show. Get the glowing look with the brand’s Eclat Lumiere Highligher Face Pen ($40) and Joues Contraste Powder Blush in Espiègle (peach-orange, $43).
Thought you’d never be able to afford anything with Chanel’s famed logo? Indulge yourself in the luxurious pleasure that is removing your makeup with one of Chanel’s Le Coton cotton pads. Developed in Japan, the outer lining of each pad is made from handpicked Egyptian cotton and the inner filling is comprised of lightly entwined, elastic Australian fibers. Of course. $20 for 100 pieces.
Work the tassel trend with this one-of-a-kind Zane Leslie Design made by reworking vintage and original Chanel components. $800.
While we can’t wait to get our hands on the Chanel Boy Bag collection launching in the fall, the Blake Lively-endorsed new Mademoiselle handbag collection, now in stores, is more than enough to hold us over. Prices range from around $2,000 to $30,600 for exotic skins.
