On July 24th, Chanel is opening a pop-up shop in the heart of Covent Garden just in time for the London 2012 Summer Olympics. The shop will be home to many exciting activities, events and products as it stays open through December 2012. On opening day, you’ll see mimes wearing Chanel jewelry pointing the way to the Chanel boutique which will have the limited edition makeup collection Bleu Illusion.

Chanel is rumored to have teamed up for a fragrance collaboration with a local flower stall. Vouge UK reported:

In addition to exclusive new products, which will launch at the boutique over the next seven months, planned highlights will include a Chanel treasure hunt; educational workshops; consultations with leading Chanel make-up experts; a luxurious space dedicated to facials and pampering; an outdoor area that will recreate the look and atmosphere of being backstage at one of the label’s catwalk shows; and a very special festive surprise come Christmas.

Chanel will also be announcing more events throughout the coming months so stay tuned for more exciting news! I can’t wait to see more. I’ll keep you posted.

First Look: Chanel Bleu Illusion Makeup Collection

Back in January we got a sneak peak of Chanel’s Bleu Illusion makeup collection that debuted on the Chanel Haute Couture Spring-Summer 2012 runway. Peter Philips created a collection awash in blues and the new limited edition products are: Illusion D’Ombre Shadow in Apparition (gray-ish blue), Illusion D’Ombre Shadow in Destination (silvery satin blue), Le Crayon Yeux Eyeliner in Blue Aerien (intense luminous blue), and Le Vernis Nail Polish in Sky Line. Describing Chanel Le Vernis Sky Line, Peter Philips stated: “It’s a beautiful, easy to apply, pearly- on the edge of metallic- shade that matched perfectly with the range of blues that Karl used for this haute couture collection.”

From the images the Bleu Illusion collection is very pretty but there’s a part of me that’s having horrible flashbacks of the 1980s and blue eyeshadow. I think in moderation this look can be really pretty and complements different eye colors. The Exclusive Collection BLEU ILLUSION will be available at specific points of sales in July 2012.
