In the 1920s, Marie Laurencin painted a watercolor portrait of Gabrielle Chanel. Karl Lagerfeld employed exact that image as a point of departure for the summer 2011 Haute Couture Collection and Peter Philips, Creative Director of Chanel Makeup, followed him.
Peter Philips infused his pastels with character, coloring candidly pure faces with a flourishing form of urban poetry. The shade range focuses on a palette of pinks and delicate grey on the eyes, framed by black and bathed in light. An exclusive creation, Ombres Tissées Beiges takes on a fine-knit texture of silvery, golden and pinkish tones of beige. Arranged in three bands within their square case, these satiny eyeshadows smooth transparently over eyelids, while illuminating facial contours with touches of light.
