Trend Report From London Fashion Week - Christopher Kane’s AW2011 With Chantecaille
Christopher Kane’s AW2011 collection is inspired by the pencil cases he had at school and lollipops. This season is all about wearability and sophistication.
“We were so excited to collaborate with Christopher Kane this season. He is a great artist with a very modern eye, who knows how to dress a woman and we both happen to share a love for color and florals. Each of the seasonal collections I create is based on current fashion trends - Christopher’s colours, especially from his SS2011collection, have had a strong influence on our palettes.” Olivia Chantecaille
“We’re delighted to be working with Chantecaille for our AW2011 show. The make-up is luxurious, elegant and feminine – so they are a perfect partner for the show.” Christopher Kane
HOW TO CREATE IT
“We wanted to create a cool, natural look, with a strong eye and soft lip. The collection was less elaborate than previous seasons and we wanted the make-up look to be as wearable and sophisticated as the clothes. Chantecaille foundations easily create a clean complexion and its chic colour palette perfectly translated the make-up look we wanted to create this season.” Lead Make-up Artist Lucia Pieroni
Skin was prepped with Rose Eye Make-up Remover, Flower Infused Cleansing Milk, Rose de Mai, Vital Essence and Lip Potion.
Future Skin was applied to even out the complexion, creating a dewy light texture. Aquablush in Brilliance was blended into the skin for shimmer followed by Bronzer in St Barths to contour under the cheeks.
Shine Eye Shade in Meteorite was applied all around the eyes followed by Pewter eye shade from Chantecaille’s Tiger in the Wild Palette - this shade was applied over meteorite and blended around the eye. To finish Shine Eye Shade in Rose Quartz was applied under the eye just below the lash line.
Eyebrows were left natural and only filled in if required withChantecaille Brow Definer. No mascara was applied.
