What I love about H&M’s designer collaborations is that each of them really puts the emphasize on the brand’s identity and comes up with something unexpected. This week, the first campaign pictures of the upcoming KENZO x H&M collection were revealed starring seven globally celebrated personalities from fashion, music, arts and activism, with Suboi, Chance and Iman as the first ambassadors revealing the new pieces, all shot by no other than Jean-Paul Goude.

Even if his name doesn’t ring a bell, you probably know his work. After all, he is responsible for some of the most influential fashion and music imagery of the past five decades. His creative partnership with Grace Jones resulted in what is perhaps his most well-known legacy – more recently he was breaking the internet together with Kim Kardashian, as he shot her for her famous Paper Magazine cover (2014).

For the campaign, Goude has used his signature hand-made cut-up style, slicing and reassembling the prints to express the exuberance and character of the collection.

A Sparkling Chance, Take It!

Chance Chanel

To enhance your fragrance trail, CHANEL offers three new shimmering products for the body in limited edition, so catch them while you can!

Unfurling the notes of CHANCE, CHANCE EAU FRAICHE and CHANCE EAU TENDRE, they perfume and illuminate the skin with a subtle pearly sheen. Believe me, even if you don’t wear those scents in general, you will love those fun products.

Chanel Chance Shimmer

CHANCE SHIMMERING BODY CREAM
Its rich and silky texture wraps the body in an iridescent veil and moisturises the skin, leaving it delectably soft. Its floral scent prolongs the trail of CHANCE, while its subtle pearly shimmer further enhances the skin. 
CHF 106.- (200g)

CHANCE EAU FRAICHE SHIMMERING TOUCH
Like a caress of the skin, its velvety gel texture is applied in subtle touches to enhance the fresh and vibrant trail of CHANCE EAU FRAICHE. Its delicate shimmer is a must for highlighting and putting a sparkle in your décolleté.
CHF 75.00 (25g)

CHANCE EAU TENDRE SHIMMERING POWDERED PERFUME
Refined and feminine, the application with a powder puff deposits a cloud of tenderness on the skin and a fine dusting of shimmer on the body. A delicate and subtle illumination with a fruity-floral scent that revives the CHANCE EAU TENDRE fragrance for ever-greater softness.
CHF 90.- (25g)
