Chanel Logo Brand Skin Care Concept by Ryan McSorley

This Artist Wants Your Skin to Say Chanel

Oh, those wacky art students. What will they think of next? Central Saint Martins design student Ryan McSorley has created a final project that gives a new definition to Chanel skin care. His prototype for a Chanel beauty package features a headband that leaves a mark. As he explains: "There is a silicone Chanel logo on the underside of the headband which during the night leaves an imprint of the Chanel logo on the skin, which is visible for a few hours. People can then clearly see that the owner uses Chanel skin care and not some other brand. Their skin has been branded Chanel."

My inner Naomi Klein reads McSorley's concept as a subversive take on branding, but it might not be. While his idea is purely academic, wearing Chanel on our skin isn't that far-fetched an idea — just look at Kaiser Karl's temporary tattoos available this season. What do you think of this school project?

how insecure do you have to be to feel the need to advertise that you wear chanel makeup? unfortunately, i know some people would want this product to hit the market asap.

this is why I try to stay away from the mega-brands (Chanel, Coach, Louis Vuitton) - unfortunately even the items I like have been ruined by overexposure...

This is just very strange. But as my old professor once said, "You gotta be a little crazy to succeed in this industry."

I can't imagine that Chanel would ever do something like this, but as an art project, it's kinda funny to me.
