Lucia Pica, CHANEL Global Creative Makeup and Color Designer, has developed a new Spring 2017 makeup collection for CHANEL to celebrate, reinterpret and decipher the five iconic color codes of CHANEL: red, black, gold, white and beige.

#COCO CODES. The collection is a journey into the colors that shaped the life of Gabrielle Chanel. Her use of colour was defiant, unexpected, elegant and bold – and always utterly original. Now a part of the very fabric and history of CHANEL, it is impossible to imagine the House without them. Yet in this collection, Lucia Pica has found a way to re-infuse these classic shades with her own elegant irreverence, breathing new life into these beloved colors, and challenging conventional modes of beauty. Rouge noir can now adorn the lips in Spring. White and beige are reimagined for nails. Red becomes younger, bolder, more audacious than ever. “I want to reverse beauty expectations and have women challenge themselves,” states Lucia Pica
