Chanel, darling!

C­hanel have done it once again. Not content with making us lust after their current S/S 2012 collection, they’ve now captured our beauty hearts.
The Creative Director for Chanel make up, Peter Philips has unleashed Ombres Matelassées 51 on the world. Meow. Created to coincide with the re-opening of the Chanel boutique on Avenue Montaigne, Paris, it is definitely one to snap up before it sells out.
The exquisitely designed eye shadow palette contains the five shades: pear, pale gold, gold, golden khaki and black night. What makes them so endearing is the quilted pattern on each of them, a la the iconic Chanel 2.55 handbags.
It will be available in the UK from 13 April in all Chanel boutiques, Selfridges London and Manchester, Harrods, House of Fraser Glasgow and Fenwicks Newcastle. It’s limited edition, so run!

This limited edition of 1,255 pieces is crafted with highly resistant black ceramic, steel case, and sapphire caseback. The J12 Caliber 12.1 steel comes with a unidirectional rotating bezel with neon rainbow-coloured indicators and numerals that provide the timepiece an electric feel.
