It was a dream to be at the Chanel S/S 11 press day, beholding all these beautiful creations. The enameled cuffs, crushed velvet clutches and elegant suede platforms looked good enough to eat, whilst the classic 2.55 bags were adorned in tiny ladybirds, dragonflies and gems. Not to mention the bag referencing the garden maze of the Grand Palais; all sublimely stunning in person.
You miss details on the catwalk, especially when so many items can make up an outfit. The pieces are able to have their own space in the showroom and can be captivating in their own right.
Inspirational images covered the wall of the make up room where the new range was on display.
The eye-shadow palette this season has the same eye-shadow used for the s/s 11 show!
Small tip: For the strong lid look used in the Chanel show, just wet your make up brush for a more intense colour.
