HOLIDAY 2021 MAKEUP COLLECTION
For its HOLIDAY 2021 collection, the CHANEL Makeup Creation Studio drew inspiration from N°5 and 100 years of celebrity. The golden hues of the fragrance have been transformed into makeup for the eyes and face, while lips and nails are draped in red, the colour of life. These new exclusive creations are available for a limited time.
A GOLDEN EYE LOOK INSPIRED BY THE HUE OF THE PARFUM
At the heart of this new collection is a reinterpretation of the Les 4 Ombres eyeshadow palette with the N°5 aesthetic, expressed as a satiny amber shade or as a pearly ivory white that recalls N°5 L’EAU. Each of the four eyeshadows can stand alone or contribute to a blended look. The N°5 motifs featured on each shade make this creation a true collector’s item.
For the first time, two exclusive shades of OMBRE PREMIÈRE LAQUE GLITTER, the long-lasting liquid eyeshadow by CHANEL, take on a glittery finish. Create high-intensity, luminous makeup looks.
ADD LIPSTICK AND ATTACK
ROUGE ALLURE N°5 is available in five shades, including two new releases: Emblématique and Légendaire. The emblematic CHANEL lipstick is housed in exclusive packaging embossed with a golden number 5.
A LUMINOUS COMPLEXION
Light-reflecting pigments in the FLUIDE ENLUMINEUR enhance the complexion, and its lightweight texture melts onto the skin and ensures long-lasting comfort. Give the skin a subtle shimmery glow with the new Or Ivoire shade of the HIGHLIGHTING FLUID.
As part of this new collection, BAUME ESSENTIEL is available in a new Or Beige shade, to be dabbed onto the high points of the face. Depending upon how it is worn, the shade can deliver both sophisticated and natural makeup looks. Its portable, pared-down design even allows for touch-ups throughout the day.
LE VERNIS by CHANEL in Rouge Intemporel, an exclusive deep red shade, completes this special HOLIDAY 2021 makeup collection look.
HOLIDAY 2021 COLLECTION
A complex fragrance blend, a streamlined bottle, a number for a name. When Gabrielle Chanel invented N°5 in 1921, she created a fragrance unlike any other, instantly ushering the fragrances of the era out of fashion. With N°5, Mademoiselle broke free of convention and revolutionized the world of perfumery.
An olfactory masterpiece that paved the way for modern perfumery, N°5 is the manifestation of a resounding success, as well as a fabulous story of self-fulfillment. In 2021, to celebrate this fragrance turned legend and its 100 years of celebrity, the House of CHANEL has designed a collection of exclusive, limited-edition creations.
N°5 has sparked wonder for over 100 years and lives as a reminder of the absolute freedom of the creator who made it a success. In 1921, Gabrielle Chanel decided to pare N°5 down to the essentials. The bottle, box and label are devoid of any superfluous ornamentation. N°5 is the most fascinating embodiment of the House’s spirit.
100 years later, CHANEL has created a new and unique version of N°5 Eau de Parfum. For the first time ever, the bottle incorporates recycled glass, while still keeping its incomparably pure, sparkling, transparent look. The product of a long-standing partnership with POCHET du COURVAL, a Living Heritage Company (Entreprise du Patrimoine Vivant), this high-quality glass was obtained using an innovative recycling technology.
The box has also been redesigned. Made with biodegradable paper pulp, it feels sensuous to the touch and closely enfolds the distinctive shape of the legendary bottle.
Lastly, Mademoiselle Chanel’s lucky number, 5, is inscribed in gold on the label of this exclusive reinterpretation. The same concept applies to N°5 L’EAU, one of 5 interpretations of the fragrance created by In-House Perfumer Creator Olivier Polge, whose label is adorned with a silver number 5.
N°5 THE CALENDAR
Shaped like an enormous bottle of N°5, this holiday calendar was designed as a work of art and is available in limited quantities. Far from conventional, the calendar includes 27 boxes numbered from 5 to 31. 5 for the perfume, 31 for the mythical address. Everything makes sense.
It contains some of the CHANEL House’s most iconic products. Among its many surprises are a limited-edition ROUGE ALLURE lipstick inspired by N°5, LE VERNIS in a new shade of red, and a bottle of N°5 Eau de Parfum, as well as a bracelet bearing the number 5, a one-of-a-kind snow globe, and a host of other accessories dedicated to the fragrance and designed just for the occasion.
GRAND EXTRAIT BACCARAT 2021ML
The largest bottle of N°5 produced by the House to date, only 55 of these hand-numbered pieces are available.
Born from the intersection of CHANEL’s creativity and Baccarat’s craftsmanship, this monumental bottle contains 2021ml of fragrance. This number was due to chance: 2021, to mark the year that N°5 celebrates 100 years of celebrity, but also because the sum of its four digits equals 5. N°5 is presented in its most precious form: the Parfum. The golden color of the fragrance is elevated by the purity of the Baccarat crystal bottle, cut like a diamond using a unique technique. True to the original design, it is adorned with a white label and crowned with a faceted cabochon. Each exquisite, custom, hand-engraved piece is housed in a white dipped lambskin coffret whose design echoes the original packaging. This exceptional bottle is paired with a Baccarat crystal wand for precise application to the pulse points: behind the earlobe, on the neckline, and on the inside of the wrist.
CHANEL’s Makeup Creation Studio was inspired by the style codes of N°5 for its HOLIDAY 2021 collection, which celebrates the golden amber color of the fragrance and combines it with shades of black, white, and red, the color of life.
Now, wearing N°5 not only means enjoying the sensuous experience of applying fragrance, but also wearing warm, luminous makeup, complete with an intense red lip. Emblematic of this approach is the Les 4 Ombres eye palette, which has been reinvented as a N°5-themed, limitededition release, with shades inspired by the colors of the perfume bottle. ROUGE ALLURE is also available in new packaging that celebrates N°5. Opulent, sensual, fascinating, it becomes all the more desirable.
