Innovative by nature and daring in style, the house of Chanel has long been defined by its forward-thinking approach to fashion — subsequently leaving iconic trends in its wake that have stood far beyond the test of time. And so, when dreaming up the concept for Chanel’s next makeup staple, the house needn’t look further than its own legacy: the iconic tweed creations first introduced nearly a century ago by Gabrielle Chanel herself.
Encouraging us to dress our eyes in tweed – a material that symbolises the infinite possibilities and creative freedom synonymous with the luxury designer label – Chanel announces the limited-edition Les 4 Ombres eyeshadows. Mimicking the complexity and depth of the woven material, each shadow plate is embossed with a tweed pattern — allowing for the vibrant and shimmering shades to enter a whole new dimension. Packed in the classic eye quad first created in 1982, the capsule comes in four-colour harmonies that transition from crimson sunsets to budding rose; a kaleidoscope of hues that suit any face, any season and any time.
Harnessing the effortless elegance of tweed pieces, the shadows come packed with pigment that seamlessly glide over the lids — blending with ease to create versatile and unique looks every time. Once again demonstrating Chanel’s innate ability to elevate everyday items, the Les 4 Ombres eyeshadows come complete with tweed pouches crafted by Maison Lesage, an extraordinary reimagining of how a makeup product should look and feel.
