This limited edition collection from CHANEL comes at the perfect time, as summer is all about the glow. Bombay Express de Chanel is the work of Peter Philips, Creative Director of CHANEL. He brought gold into the glow this year, as it is his vision of India.
Each year, the CHANEL Métiers d’Art fashion show celebrates the exceptional talent of the Métiers Houses, pairing their know-how with a legendary destination. This year, Bombay Express de CHANEL showcases a specific vision of India. Peter Philips, Creative Director of CHANEL Makeup, intensifies the proportions of iconic Indian eye makeup to give it a universal character.
Graphic makeup with saturated colour blocks stretches out from the corner of the eye to express strength and femininity. Eyes succumb to the boldness and mystery of a black eyeshadow in all its nuances with ILLUSION D’OMBRE Mirifique. The rest of the face focuses on gold and light. The Exclusive Creation of the Collection is a precious, evanescent golden powder to dab onto cheekbones and eyelids in scintillating touches. In its classic black-lacquered case, ROUTE DES INDES DE CHANEL recreates an embossed motif of a rare fabric, a piece of bronze brocade from an Indian-influenced collection created by Gabrielle Chanel in the 1960s. A stroke of blush structures the face and warms the translucent complexion with the hint of an elegant and sunny earth tone. Lips remain natural, enhanced by the luster of luminous beige shimmering with gold. On nails, an original nail polish mixing pale gold and silver recalls the traditional festival of lights, for which it was named Diwali.
