Chanel Boy bags & Chanel Fall-Winter Makeup 2011:Illusions d’Ombre de Chanel

Coming this Fall, a whole new line of Chanel bags to covet. Based on a hunting cartridge style originally carried by Coco Chanel herself, the new Chanel Boy bags are made to embody the androgynous charm the designer was known for.

Chanel used men’s underwear to make dresses; she had this boyish attitude, in fact it is the very spirit of Chanel. She got it from Boy Capel, the great love of her life, which, incidentally, explains why the new bag is called the Boy Chanel,” Karl Lagerfeld explains of his inspiration.

Available in a pared-down palette of red, grey, and ivory, these glazed calfskin clutches, purses, and totes hit Chanel boutiques in September 2011

The Chanel Fall-Winter 2011-12 makeup collection called Illusions d’Ombre de Chanel is another must have for this fall. It’s a great match for the dark, smoldering Fall-Winter 2011/12 ready-to-wear collection. The lips and cheeks are pretty neutrals while the eye shadows are smokey and very rich.

A concentration of light and shimmering effects, the makeup of the Fall 2011 Collection bor rows the stroke of genius, interplay of textures and infinite variation of sheens.


Inspired by jewellery sets, glimmers of gold, bronze or platinum glow in a palette of luminous colour s with a vintage luster.
Swept over lips or eyelids, the more delicate shades of pink or coral recall the freshness of flowing tulle.

What I like very much are the individual eye shadow gel pots; the eye shadows have a creamy texture and the colors are gorgeous, even the names are: Fantasme –Emerveillé – Ebloui –Epatant –Illusoire –Mirifique


Already looking forward to this fall, fashion and beauty wise that is…
