Every CHANEL Colour is a Code

CHANEL Colour

They are colours that do not hide.

They are colours that reveal, that enhance.

That make contrasts more distinct.

They establish relationships of brightness and of saturation.

They elude all that is anecdotal. That is how they became codes.

CHANEL colour embraces singularity, rather than striving for multiplicity and ending up purely decorative.

One might recall—to borrow a principle from Kandinsky—the “inner necessity” of each colour.

Rouge Noir is not a burgundy or a garnet.

The objective nature of its name mirrors the creation of the N°5 fragrance.

Red’s intensity is tempered by black’s depth. Dense, they do not blur together, but instead seamlessly complete one another.

Rouge Pirate is an internal dialogue between two primary colours: a red infused with blue.

Blanc White, radical, is a touch of graphic purity reminiscent of op art.

Gold, Gabrielle Chanel’s Byzantine muse, a notion of light. Silver, a sprinkling of constellations.

Beige is not a nude, not an absence but an affirmation: natural is a style.

Black, a fundamental element of the House, unapologetically bowls over anything in its way to emphasize what is most essential.

Every CHANEL colour is a code that sets the tone for all the world’s hues.
