Paint it red

“Red is the colour of life, of blood, I love red.” - Gabrielle Chanel

Introducing Le Rouge Collection No 1. The debut Chanel Beauty collection by newly-appointed global creative designer for make-up and colour, Lucia Pica, is also Chanel’s first to be based wholly on the signature colour red. At the collection launch in London, Pica gave a glimpse into the inspirations behind the range through photographs by Max Fargo and a film by Clara Collins. “In the collection there are ideas of subversion and classicism. It is about the power of femininity, but also vulnerability. Red is intense, vulnerable, sexual and eternal,” Pica explains. Modern desire, these are for the side of you that dares.
