You have to look twice before you can appreciate the full detail and subtlety of Chanel’s latest beauty statement. Revealed during the presentation of the Cruise Collection at the futuristic premises of the Dongdaemun Design Plaza in Seoul – designed by star architect Zaha Hadid – the make-up reflected the surroundings: eyebrows framed above and below by precisely curved lines give the face a futuristic appearance. False eyelashes – used only in part – produce a typically Asian style of eye make-up. And because Asia and the future are such a perfect match, designer Karl Lagerfeld ruptures the look by combining it with a conservative Heidi hairstyle. Which finishes off the allure perfectly. Undoubtedly more suitable for daily wear is Chanel’s autumn look Les Automnales, in homage to the season’s melancholic mood. Central to the timelessly elegant line are the colours of the forest and those who live there: khaki, brown, ochre, beige, shimmering bronze, luscious green and flaming red. Nails: brick red, dark brown, greenish-black.
