We unearthed this gem from Chanel Makeup Creative Director Peter Philips’ couture show inspiration notes:
‘In the early stages of the Haute Couture Collection, a few key elements came up. Karl mentioned the masculine/feminine silhouette, the decor (Place Vendôme), the fact that we were going to do a show at night and the flashlight shoes. That's where the veil/burglar idea came from,’
So BURGLERS were the Chanel beauty inspiration! Somehow, between the midnight tweeds and shadowy show styling, it makes sense.
