It's finally fall here in the Curator's neck of the woods - time for cold-weather fabrics like corduroy, cashmere and tweed, so I thought I'd look at Chanel's Pink Lamé palette. Released in the fall of 2006, the palette features a pink tweed pattern with silver and gold running throughout.
As with the Camellias palettes, Chanel took one of its signature fashion symbols and placed it onto a makeup item. While tweed obviously isn't an exclusive Chanel fabric, the tweed Chanel jacket is considered a classic and makes an appearance in nearly every seasonal collection.
I had been thinking for a while how cool it would be to have this tweed pattern repeated in other items within the line, and it looks like the company was reading my mind. Chanel has just released new blushes with tweed patterns on them. So if you missed the limited-edition Pink Lamé (and can't afford a Chanel tweed jacket) you can still get your Chanel tweed fix in these new blushes!
