To launch Chanel's new fashion boutique in Hysan Place in Hong Kong, Peter Philips created a special mini collection featuring only three products: a new, limited-edition Ombres Matelassées Eyeshadow Palette ($80) and two Les Vernis nail lacquers. Two of the three pieces arrived at Chanel's boutique at Saks Fifth Avenue in Chevy Chase, and I am ready to show them to you. Let's start with the eye shadow.
I took photos outside Saks because I was afraid that the sun would sneak behind the clouds before I could get home. Sure enough, it did. I swatched with my own sponge-tipped applicators and ran outside to take photos. I can only imagine what the painters who were finishing off the renovation were thinking - like I cared.
I was just at Neiman Marcus, and they have not received the Hong Kong Collection. It's possible that with the new extra-special installation at Saks Chevy Chase, that they will be receiving collections early. If you are interested in purchasing the pieces, give Georgia or Maria a call at (240) 497-5363.
Update: I like the new installation at Chevy Chase so much, I decided to throw up another photo. You can shift the lighting at each station, so I turned it to bright and created a runway for the eye palette. Fun!
