Chanel's Collection Avant-Première will ship to Chanel counters on May 6. The edited scoop from Chanel follows.
Always at the forefront of culture, Gabrielle Chanel instilled her style in classic cinema. By special request, she created fashions for beloved Hollywood actresses, such as Gloria Swanson, and costumed the era's leading ladies of French film - Ina Claire, Jeanne Moreau, and Delphine Seyrig.
In a tribute to the elegant screen style developed by Gabrielle Chanel, Peter Philips, [former] Creative Director of Chanel Makeup, developed Collection Avant-Première. This brilliant palette spotlights new color-rich Rouge Coco Shine Hydrating Lip Colour Lipshine and pays homage to Mademoiselle's influence on film.
To extend the Rouge Coco range, the new Rouge Coco Shine Hydrating Lipcolour Lipshines ($34) combine a beautiful sheen with 30% more color pigments than classic Rouge Coco Shine. The Hydratendre Complex softens the lips, plumping them for a healthier, fuller appearance. There are eight new sheer and shiny shades with intense color, from golden beige to bold red.
The classic Rouge Coco Hydrating Crème Lip Colour ($34) will be available in six new, luxurious shades, from peach-beige to satiny red - each celerating the unstoppable spirit of Coco Chanel.
Not to be outshone, Les Vernis ($27) will captivate in breakout shades of purple-brown, orange red, and peach-pink.
I really like Rouge Coco Shine and can't wait for the new shades to arrive at counters. That should be in mid-May.
