Temporary Chanel tattoo not enough for you? Looking for a way to proclaim your love for all things Chanel that expresses the depth of your devotion to the original Coco? Now, you can brand your skin with the ubiquitous interlocked C’s. Created as a final project by Central Saint Martins design student Ryan McSorley, Skin by Chanel lets you take branding to a whole new level. Typically, if you want to show off your love of a brand, you can buy yourself a monogrammed bag. But how’s a woman to show off her high-end skin care products? “If you are using skincare by Chanel, you want people to know that your skin is by Chanel, in the same way that Chanel handbags have clear branding,” explains McSorley. Use the Chanel skincare products, and then tell the world about it with a Chanel skin impression. Check out the results after the jump.
Considering this idea of branding skin, I have designed a beauty kit for Chanel. I chose Chanel due to it’s strong logo and brand history, and the fact that it is a high end brand. The packaging is manufactured in Corian, giving a smooth finish, and the organic and pebble like form is intended to reflect our obsession with perfection, especially when it comes to our faces. The kit is used at night before sleeping and includes a Cleanser, Toner and Moisturiser. There is also a headband in the kit, which is tied around the head and worn while sleeping. There is a silicone ‘Chanel logo’ on the underside of the headband which during the night leaves an imprint of the Chanel logo on the skin, which is visible for a few hours. People can then clearly see that the owner uses Chanel Skincare and not some other brand. Their skin has been branded Chanel … the ultimate fashion accessory you might say!?
