Built by Gabrielle Chanel in the 1920s, the light of La Pausa, dear to Mademoiselle, is the central theme of the Chanel Spring 2022 collection. The natural, earthy colors and sunlight surrounding the villa are at the heart, along with the ‘sunbeam’ button motif, designed as a graphic representation of the Riviera, that is embossed on the powder products.
Rouge Coco Baume is the main release of this new makeup collection. It can be distinguished by its pared-down, all-white packaging. It was designed in the same style as the iconic Rouge Coco line, a line with unique sensory qualities, combining the color provided by a lipstick with the moisturizing benefits of a balm.
The collection’s eye makeup creations are infused with the soft, sunlit hues of the landscape with Les 4 Ombres featuring the ‘sunbeam’ motif and the villa’s enveloping shades. It includes a khaki brown color that is reminiscent of the olive trees in the garden, accompanied by gold and copper shades that evoke the dazzling sunlight of the Côte d’Azur.
The two Blush Lumière exclusive creations, designed in shades of coral pink and terracotta brown, warm up the complexion and leave it glowing. The coral shade is ideal for daytime wear, the brown for a bold, chic look. For a complete sun-kissed look, Baume Essentiel subtly illuminates the complexion, creating the effect of a holiday spent in the sun. Its shimmery coral pink shade livens up the cheeks with a natural, healthy glow.
La Pausa’s color scheme is vast with its yellow walls and softly sunlit, tiled terracotta floors. This contrast, evocative of the south of France, is embodied in the two nail polishes from the Spring collection.
