Chanel’s 2010 Spring/Summer Temporary Tattoos
Chanel’s 2010 Spring/Summer ready-to-wear show featured the models rocking some temporary skin art tattoos. Peter Phillips, Global Creative Director Of Chanel Make-up, describes his inspiration for the tattoos.
"For the show I wanted to play with the Chanel Symbols, the pearls, the chains, wheat,as well as blossoms and small swallows who usually announce the arrival of spring. I placed the tattoos on different parts of the body, in an elegant yet sensual manner, chic and sexy: On the decollete, the wrist and thighs like a garter.
All this in a cheerful and festive manner.
The chains dressed the slender and delicate wrists. The pearls, intertwined with flowers and wheat, fell like cascades down the length of the legs, or became a necklace on which the swallows rested."
Starting Mid-February, Les Trompe L’Oeil de Chanel Temporary Skin Art will go on sale at chanel.com. For about $78, you’ll get 55 tattoos.
