PARIS – “Neon baroque” was the image Karl Lagerfeld gave to Peter Philips, Chanel’s global creative director for makeup, as he dreamed up the look for the spring couture show.
On models’ mouths, Philips used a vivid shade of Rouge Allure called Genial, which is due out in the summer collection. Eyelids were dappled in silver and gray hues from a new Chanel duo, called Gris Subtile.
“There are pastels with a touch of synthetic,” said Philips.
Katsuya Kamo created the dramatic, decorated hairstyles. Models sported straight bangs, often streaked with a grayish color and topped with a bow.
The rest of their hair was divided in half and pulled upward into two textured sections – between which lay a decorated ribbon.
