For Fall 2016, Le Rouge Collection N°1 explores the abstract and expressive resonances of red color while reconfiguring its role in beauty. At times, Lucia Pica seeks to transform the traditional role of red, at once celebrating and subverting its classic status as the preeminent color for lipstick, blush and nail varnish. While still partaking in the search for the iconic and classic in each area of the collection, Pica also confounds expectations and takes the red into unexpected realms, particularly eye makeup – evoking emotion and passion here too.
The color of life and death, love and desire, innocence and experience. Within this extremes are many metaphors for the emotional dichotomies of life. It is those emotional extremes that Lucia Pica, CHANEL global creative makeup & color designer, seeks to evoke in her debut collection for CHANEL Beauty.
