RED HER­RING

Harper’s Bazaar (Malaysia) - - The Beauty -

For her first creations as global cre­ative make-up and colour di­rec­tor of Chanel, Lu­cia Pica turned to a time­less hue: red. “Red is in­tense, vul­ner­a­ble, sex­ual, and eter­nal,” says Pica of Le Rouge Col­lec­tion No˚1, where a spec­trum of sen­sual scar­lets and bur­gundies flood the nail lac­quers, lip­sticks, and lip lin­ers. “Coco Chanel said, ‘Met­tez du rouge et at­taquez’ (Put on lip­stick and at­tack). For me, those ideas are fun­da­men­tal to red cos­met­ics. They mean pro­tec­tion, play­ful­ness, and strength,” ex­presses Pica.

“I wanted to look at an op­po­si­tion of tex­tures; there is strength in im­per­fec­tion.” – Lu­cia Pica
