Is it really the holiday season if Chanel isn’t bedazzling our fashion and beauty enthusiasts with their festive makeup collection? Last year, the fabled French fashion house captivated us with a holiday makeup theme inspired by the majestic moon. This year, we’re whisked back to the delightful 1920s, for a collection blending geometric characters of French Arts Décoratifs and the bold fashion style of that era.
The 1920s marked a significant period for Chanel, transitioning into cosmetics after making waves with their fashion line of tubular day dresses and sequins. When Chanel embraces the 20s’ sparkling fashion, you can feel the personal touch reflected in the brilliance of this collection. So, without delay, let’s explore Chanel’s 2023 Holiday collection.
