Slowly but surely, the hush-hush plans for the Fall 2007 Chanel collection are being announced. We've already heard about the innovative, matte yet radiant Mat Lumière foundation, and now comes Chanel 4 Camèlias.
This gorgeous palette is comprised of four cream based, sheer, satiny and ever-so-slightly iridescent lipstick shades inspired by the Camèlia, the emblematic flower of Chanel. The colors include rosy white, rosy beige, plum and peach-pink. Each pretty palette comes in a black satin pouch along with a small lip brush and a mirror.
In a recent press release, I read that designers Dominique Moncourtois and Heidi Morawetz feel that a "collection springs to life each season, like a flower in an imaginary garden.” I take it that we can expect to see more flower-inspired products from Chanel this fall.
