Nearly a century ago, Gabrielle Chanel disrupted women’s wardrobes with herfirst tweed creations. She valued the fabric for its flexible texture and irregular patterns, which give it a natural appearance, as well as for the casual eleganceit imparts. For the House of CHANEL, tweed is a source of infinite possibility and offers exceptional creative freedom. It is declined in a variety of forms,colors, and styles.
The CHANEL Makeup Creation Studio drew inspiration from this emblematic fabric for its 2022 EYE COLLECTION. The essence of tweed has once again been reinterpreted, now taking the form of limited-edition LES 4 OMBRES eyeshadows. First created in 1982, this eye quad has become a CHANEL makeup staple.
For this new collection, four exclusive creations were designed with a tweedpattern embossed on the surface of each shade. The four-color harmoniescapture the creative worth of the fabric. Just as different fibers are intertwinedto form tweed, the shades can be blended, and their intensity varied, to achievechic and bold makeup results. The eyeshadows are as effortless to apply as atweed garment is to wear.
For this special occasion, the compacts are paired with tweed pouches crafted by Maison Lesage, which is part of CHANEL’s Métiers d’art since 2002. Each of the four harmonies features a unique color palette and suits all skin tones. Theseversatile eyeshadows work in synergy to create a wide range of looks, from simpleand natural to sophisticated.
The first harmony, entitled Tweed Fauve, is composed of radiant hues thatbring warmth to the eyes. A combination of powerful colors between earthand fire, which combines a fiery brick orange with the depth of an intenseaubergine brown, illuminated by the subtle shine of a satin coral and thereflections of an amber gold.
The second, Tweed Cuivré, makes them shine with golden shimmer. An elegantaccord that evokes the richness and brilliance of the precious metals dear toGabrielle Chanel.
To complement these color harmonies, two new shades of STYLO YEUXWATERPROOF have been created—one, Cuivre Doré, to illuminate the eyes,the other, Bois Noir, for added intensity.
