Chanel Spring 2010 Collection: Temporary Tattoos
‘Chanel’ and ‘tattoo’ aren’t usually words you would associate with each other, especially not temporary tattoos, which evoke the image of little children rubbing tacky images of hearts and roses onto their arms.
However, Chanel are releasing the beautiful body art, or ‘Les Trompe Lâ€™Å“il de Chanel,’ from their Spring 2010 collection, and of course are nothing like the cheesy rub-on transfers from our childhood! These temporary tattoos are an interesting alternative to jewellery, and feature rosary beads, lace, fairytale birds, chains and of course, the double-C logo. According to Selfridges, where the transfers will be on sale from March 1st,
“Delicate and oh-so-Chanel, these delicate illusions of Chanelâ€™s signature chain bracelets and pearls will beautify just about any part of the body you have on show. We love the garter for the thigh and the necklace over the dÃ©colletÃ©. Forget about jewellery, this is the new way to dress up.”
Les Trompe Lâ€™Å“il de Chanel will be available exclusively from Selfridges from the 1st March. A set of 55 transfers will cost Â£49, and you can put yourself on the waiting list, or get more information by calling the counter on 0207 318 3662.
