Karl Lagerfeld and Peter Philips really are a match made in heaven. Karl conjures up beautiful themes and collections and Peter is always able to translate that aesthetic into an equally gorgeous beauty collection. For the Chanel spring-summer 2012 Haute Couture show Philips created BLEU ILLUSION.
In his words:
“For the SS 2012 Haute Couture Show I chose to focus on the eyes and to add a touch of pearl on the nails. The brief was: blue!
In combination with the ‘hair statements’, the most flattering and
contemporary solution for the models was to have a simple kohl-eye look, but instead of black kohl, I created a ‘blue-khol’ - Bleu Aérien, a new intense blue eye pencil that I applied to contour the eyes.
I created two new Illusion d'Ombre. The shade ‘Apparition’ is an intense, greyish blue that I applied on top of the eye pencil, fading out towards the outer corner of the eye, and ‘Destination’ is a pale, silvery satin blue that I used on the inner corner of the eye and very moderately under the eyebrow.
I finished the look with black mascara Inimitable Intense in ‘Noir’ and a deep blue line in the eye with the Crayon Khôl in ‘Marine’.
For the nails I created a pale pearl blue shade called Le Vernis ‘Sky Line’. It's a beautiful, easy to apply, pearly (on the edge of metallic) shade that matched perfectly with the range of blues that Karl used for this Haute Couture Collection.”
