Chanel draws inspiration from this emblematic fabric for its 2022 eye collection
Nearly a century ago, Gabrielle Chanel disrupted women’s wardrobes with her first tweed creations. She valued the fabric for its flexible texture and irregular patterns, which gave it a natural appearance, as well as for the casual elegance it imparted.
For the House of Chanel, tweed is a source of infinite possibility. It 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 tweed pattern embossed on the surface of each shade. The four-color harmonies capture the creative worth of the fabric. Just as different fibers are intertwined to form tweed, the shades can be blended, and their intensity varied, to achieve chic and bold makeup results. The eyeshadows are as effortless to apply as a tweed 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. These versatile eyeshadows work in synergy to create a wide range of looks, from simple and natural to sophisticated.
Tweed Pourpre combines pinks and mauves to offer a satiny and iridescent make-up look. It oscillates between softness and audacity.
Four natural brown and beige tones represent this creation of Tweed Brun et Rose.
Tweed Cuivré makes the eye shine with golden shimmer. Its elegant accord evokes the richness and brilliance of the precious metals dear to Gabrielle Chanel. Tweed Fauve is composed of radiant hues that bring warmth to the eyes. This combination of powerful colors between earth and fire merges a fiery brick orange with the depth of an intense aubergine brown, illuminated by the subtle shine of a satin coral and the reflections of an amber gold.
