Ah, the genius that is Peter Philips. Chanel’s global creative director for makeup continues to amaze, creating these whimsical trompe l’oeil “skin art” tattoos that the models sported on the Chanel spring runway. Now they’re coming to a Chanel boutique near you! “For the show, I wanted to play with the Chanel symbols; pearls, chains and wheat, as well as blossoms and small swallows that announce the arrival of spring,” said Philips of Karl Lagerfeld’s country chic-themed show. “I focused on a natural makeup look with chic beige tones and a slight touch of rebellion: the tattoos!” These are not your ordinary mom-and-pop shop press-ons, mind you. You can create an entire Chanel necklace on your skin or a “quilted” leather bracelet to accessorize your gown or cocktail dress for a special look that’s guaranteed to dazzle. The skin art, which is temporary and easily removed, arrives in stores in late February and comes in a package of five sheets, for a total of 55 designs. The number of designs on the sheet depends on the individual sheet.
