With the blossoming of flowers upon us, Chanel is celebrating the arrival of spring with its Les Fleurs de Chanel collection.
Lucia Pica looked to the flower universe for Chanel’s Spring/ Summer 2021 collection, with the likes of peonies, irises, anthuriums, pansies, carnations, sweet peas, and camellias (a personal favourite of Mademoiselle Chanel) serving as inspiration. This intense exploration and research created both a new colour scheme and a new range of effects. Les Fleurs de Chanel is all about light and luminosity, where warm mixes with cool, and vivid sparkles perfectly complement subtle, earthy undertones. Delicate meets bold, uniting shimmering colours and dominated by coral orange, with the satin radiance of ‘bare’ skin and the warm intensity of bronze and copper. It is a collection that brings together a blush-and-highlighting duo for complexion perfection, a range of eye enhancers, radiant lip colours and, last but not least, dazzling new shades of Le Vernis nail polish.
