Each year, the Chanel Métiers d’Art fashion show celebrates the exceptional talent of these Houses, pairing their know-how with a legendary destination.
Paris – Bombay showcases a specific vision of India. Immense chandeliers and candelabras bathe an opulent banquet table in light. The scent of jasmine floats through the air. Surreal princesses from an idealized empire or authentic Parisian women combine the lavishness of the Maharajas and the timeless codes of the House of CHANEL. Refined jewelry pieces clip back sumptuous hairstyles and black-shadowed eyes take on a catlike appearance.
Indian beauties know how to enhance their noble almond-shaped eyes, which they accentuate with kohl and dark eye shadows. Peter Philips, Creative Director of Chanel Makeup, intensifies the proportions of this iconic makeup to give it a universal character. Just as we like it!
Eyes succumb to the boldness and mystery of a black eyeshadow in all its nuances with Illusion D’ombre Mirifique. Graphic makeup with saturated colour blocks to set the appearance of strong eyes. The rest of the face focuses on gold and light.
The Exclusive Creation of the Collection is a precious, evanescent golden powder to dab onto cheekbones and eyelids in scintillating touches. In its classic black-lacquered case, Chanel recreates an embossed motif of a rare fabric, a piece of bronze brocade from an Indian-influenced collection created in the 1960s.
The lips remain natural, enhanced by with beige shimmering with a hunch of gold. The nails are an original nail polish mixing pale gold and silver that recalls the traditional festival of lights, for which it was named: Diwali.
