Sneak Peek: Aquillaries de Chanel Collection

Ready your wallets, my friends. The new Aquillaries de Chanel Collection is sure to capture your imagination. The collection will ship to select Neiman Marcus stores this month.

Inspired by the looks of Chanel's Spring/Summer 2011 Haute Couture Show, Peter Philips created several new, limited-edition pieces and reached back into Chanel's beautiful line for others. The new, exclusive pieces have taken their place on my must-have list.

Here's the pretty-in-pink lineup in Aquillaries de Chanel.
  • Rouge Coco Shine in the Royallieu (a limited edition that you can purchase now at Chanel.com)
  • Joues Contraste in Pink Cloud and Rose Pétale (re-promoted)
  • Les Vernis in Tendress (re-promoted)
  • Ombre Essentielle in Gris Exquis (new, limited)
  • Ombres Tissées in Beiges (new, limited)
Ombres Tissées in Beiges is a pink-peach highlighter that was created for the show. It will jump into my bag the moment it arrives at the store. I'll also be looking for Royallieu and Gris Exquis. It will be a happy day!

Ava said...

Thank goodness this looks too light for my complexion!

Charlestongirl said...

Hi Lovethescents!

My thoughts exactly.

Charlestongirl said...

Ava,

You can bail me out of debtor's prison?

productdoctor said...

Ava, I second that! My wallet is hurting!

xiao said...

OMG. have been waiting for that pearl highlighter since October last year!!

Charlestongirl said...

Xiao,

Wait not much longer, my friend. It ships next week. :)

Charlestongirl said...

Hi ProductDoctor!

My passion is definitely out of control. I was so good, though, when I shopped Laura Mercier. I actually exhibited some self-control. Then I came home and cried. :)

Leticia said...

Love the highlighter!

Eileen said...

Would someone pul-leeze hand Lovethescents a tissue? LOL And bring me one while you're at it!

I have been surreptitiously mopping up the drool ever since seeing this collection several months ago when back stage pictures emerged. These kinds of muted pinks, beiges, and grays really speak to me of autumn's shifting light as it fades into the hazy shades of winter. I've already purchased Royallieu and have been counting the days waiting for Gris Equis and Ombres Tissées in Beiges. Fauve is also on my must try list as is Armani's Rose Piqué de Mauve. I can easily see the direction my autumn is headed.

Hi!

I have been waiting for this collection - especially the highlighter! Thank you for always sharing your information. :)

I have already called to see if I can pre-order it, but the stores I have called do not know anything about it! Do you know who or where to contact?

Thank you!

Liz said...

Ooh, I wonder how close Pink Cloud JC is going to be to Narcisse JC. Speaking of Narcisse, I would really, really love it if Chanel would repromote Turbulent JC. Ah, that would be the day.

Charlestongirl said...

Hi Leticia!

Me too. If I could only have one...

Charlestongirl said...

Eileen,

I had seen the photos, but didn't want to publish before I could give everyone some general date of release. We wouldn't want Lovethescents drooling for months, would we? :)

Charlestongirl said...

Hi Brerib,

You can pre-order from Kathy Shoreman at Neiman Marcus by calling 703-761-1600 and asking for her in the beauty department. I believe her extension is 3282, but that's from memory. If you ask for the Jo Malone or Armani counter, they will find Kathy.

Charlestongirl said...

Hi Liz!

Isn't it fun when old favorites return from the grave? I'd love to get my hands on "those archives."

brerib said...

Thank you so much - I am off to call her now! :)

Charlestongirl said...

Brerib, I just found out Kathy isn't working today. Give her a call tomorrow.

Clarisse said...

Peter Philips never stops creating!!!!"your" collection is not the same as ours, no aquillaries here, just "les fleurs d'été" which you had in Spring, if I remember correctly...Never mind, we are waiting patiently for the Autumn one at mid-August( my wallet is smiling:-) Enjoy your beautiful Aquillaries everyone!

Nina said...

The highlighter is a must have! Still debating whether Royallieu is too similar to Boy - but those fashion show photos are so tempting :) You don't think it will be NM exclusive?

Shannon (Lipstick Musings) said...

I'm in need of several items in this collection. IN NEED!!! Sadly, the only NM in Atlanta is about 45 minutes from me, so I never get down there...I literally have to drive past 2 other malls to get there.

But oh, the temptation!! Pink! I die!!

pinkribbons said...

If I don't pick up the highlighter I will go crazy!! LOL.

Charlestongirl said...

Hi Clarisse!

Hope you don't have to wait until November for these lovely treats!

Charlestongirl said...

Don't do that Pinkribbons,

You'll have a chance to pick it up. :)

To everyone I missed today, I hope you enjoyed the photos as much as I did. I'll show you more soon!

Eileen said...

Hi Nina,

Cafe Makeup has a nice comparison shot of Royallieux and Boy. Boy is actually quite a bit darker. Royallieux is a much lighter and milkier pale pink that might actually be too light for a lot of women. It gives a glossy, barely there lips that combines beautifully with soft and smoky come hither eyes.

Will this collection be available online?

Charlestongirl said...

Just a guess, Anonymous, yes, probably at Chanel. Not all NM stores will have it, though.

Divaesquire14 said...

I'm going to be broke with these Chanel Collections!!! But I love them all!! Can't wait for them to hit the stores<3

Charlestongirl said...

Hi Divasquire...you and me both! I just don't think I can give up food, so I'm not sure where to cut back.

Anonymous said...

Beautiful collection! Do you know how soon it will be available for purchase? Is it available in the US and online at chanel.com?

Charlestongirl said...

The collection is shipping to Neiman Marcus "fashion doors" on Monday. Give it a week. I would imagine it will be available at Chanel.com - but can't say for sure.

Makeup Magpie said...

Everything looks gorgeous! There are so many great collections I'm looking forward to seeing! Now adding this one to the wishlist :) Thanks for this sneak peek :)

Charlestongirl said...

Hi Makeup Magpie!

This one has me asking every day...Did it come? We kind of expected it Friday, but now we are looking at Monday. Can't wait!
