Channeling Chanel

Tuesday, February 23, 2010

From the runways to sidewalks, temporary tattoos are the "haute" accessory trend for spring 2010. Designers like Jean Paul Gautier and Chanel displayed these sexy details during their runway shows. Decorating the body has become the new jewelry for 2010.

Chanel has created a new line of temporary tattoos, called, Les Trompe L'Oeil de CHANEL Temporary Skin Art. The classical touches of Chanel combined with the edgy look of tattoos creates a sexy and seductive look that anyone can sport.

The exclusive and limited edition tattoos just went on sale earlier this month. With design ranging from the famous double c's to rosary beads and lace, these tats are super cute. A pack of 5 sheets that include 55 unique tattoos costs around $75, which is really inexpensive for Chanel.

The description from the Chanel website is:

"Fifty-five exclusive temporary tattoos in all, originally hand-drawn by Peter Philips, Global Creative Director of CHANEL Makeup, for the Spring-Summer 2010 Fashion Show in Paris. Artful images of CHANEL symbols and icons, including Oriental cherry blossoms and birds, can be mixed and matched for unlimited effects."


The new trend is a perfect accessory for the edginess that has been so obvious since fall 2009.

With the mixture of feminine and edgy details, these tattoos will get some fashionistas super excited. Would you ever try this trend?

There has to be something better than tattoos that screams feminine. I love ink, but it just doesn't catch me as a symbol for being feminine.

I don't really like them.

I think it is a cute concept, but frankly I don't believe that temporary tattoos reflect the brand Chanel has been building for years.
