EXCLUSIVE: Heavy Metals: Backstage Beauty At Chanel, The Video
Metallics were all over the Fall runways—from Tom Pecheux’s frosted copper mouths at Peter Som and his smoky pewter lids at Derek Lam to Odile Gilbert’s feather-shaped goldleaf brush strokes on hair at Jason Wu. But our favorite take on the molten pigments came from Chanel, where Peter Philips debuted three colors from his new Illusion d’Ombre eye shadow collection. The shadows boast a creamy mousse texture that is truly divine when swiped across skin. But don’t just take our word for it; watch as Philips himself displays their versatility by blending a smudge of Épatant, a gunmetal gray, across his own hand to illustrate its blendability. All this, and yours truly utilizing the power of a red lip to distract from the fact that this video was shot backstage at the Grand Palais at 7:30 AM, are just a click away.
