Chanel has just announced that Gold is a central theme of it’s Fall 08 and Holiday 08 cosmetics collections. These are the first makeup collections by Peter Philips, the new creative director of makeup at Chanel. For his first collection, he took inspiration from Coco Chanel’s personal apartment on Rue Cambon which he found very warm with rich colors surrounding him like earthy browns, gold-gilded frames and crystal chandeliers. The collection includes a gold nail polish called Gold Fiction and Kaléidoscope (a shiny green gold) for fall and a gold brown nail polish called Haute Chocolate for holiday. Will these colors become the next it colors like Vamp, Black Satin and Blue Satin? I guess only time will tell. The collection also includes gold lip gloss, gold highlighting powder and a black eyeliner with gold sparkle. I think the colors will be popular and they are very seasonal since Fall usually favors rich color and Holiday always has a little bit of glitz for all the holiday festivities. The Fall collection will be available in stores beginning in July and the Holiday collection in October.
