CHANEL-ling Hitchcock

Tuesday, June 26, 2012

Check Out The New CHANEL Hitchcock Nail Color Collection I was perusing Vogue Germany online (and I don't speak a lick of German haha) and after doing a little translation homework (thank you Babylon.com) I found out that Chanel is coming out with an interesting new nail polish collection that pays hommage to film producer and director Alfred Hitchcock. Yes, Hitchcock! AKA the 'Master of Suspense'. Can you imagine the upcoming Chanel campaign ads? HaHaHa

 


Let me give you a brief background on Hitchcock! Alfred Hitchcock was before my time, so I know for many of you he was before your time also. HaHa Born in London, England he became a citizen of The United States and worked for big movie houses such as Universal Pictures, 20th Century Fox, Warner Brothers and Paramount Pictures to name a few.  He's hailed as a suspense and psychological filmaker genius and is widely known for his popular films Psycho, The Birds and Dial M for Murder here in the States.

I've always embraced the unique and unusual, but for me (my personal tastes) Alfred Hitchcock always took it several more levels and ummm threw you off the top! HaHaHa So I could never really get into his films, but he was definitely a genius nonetheless.


Chanel Le Vernis and Hitchcock Films! The name of the three nail polishes that will come out Fall 2012 are: N°561 Suspicious, N°563 Vertigo, and N°559 Frenzy. All are named after one of Hitchcock's many masterpieces. I've never seen any of these films (as of yet). Have you? Are you a Hitchcock fan? What do you think of the Chanel nail colors? If I translated correctly, Suspicious is suppose to be Fuchsia, Vertigo like Caviar and Frenzy is like pale death with a hint of Lilac...ok maybe not pale death (that's my description of it! haha) ...something like gray (greigeton). Anybody know any German??? LOL

Hitchcock films are not my kind of film but the nail polishes are certainly my kind of colour especially Frenzy and Suspicious!

i have seen a few hitchcock films..i am a movie enthusiast so i have seen a few of him and that other him and so on..i know he's a genius and i can see why..i am not a personal fan though i love his theme and love for dark and macabre things..don't the colours oddly look similar to other things we have already in the market?

TheUrbanUmbrella said...

I've never seen any of his films actually, I probably should - I do love old movies!
I adore that colour "vertigo", seriously gorgeous!

Loving 'Suspicious'! So gorgeous for Fall :)

Anya adores said...

OHHHH I love them Kim, I own tons of Chanel nail varnishes (even the coveted Jade:) These are exquisite - I'd love the vertigo & suspicious but then again frenzy... UHHH sounds scary cool. Thanks for sharing sweets, glad you got the german gist of it - otherwise let me know, we learn german at school:)

What a cool idea! I love the colors too. Is the Vertigo one a deep maroon or is it black? Really cool either way!

Vertigo and frenzy are up my alley - I love grays!

i really like these colors.

Stela said...

How cool is that?! Love all the colors of the collection.

Fashion Tales.... said...

I am actually quite a Hitchcock fan, growing up read and viewed many of the stories. I actually want that Frenzy! Seems like that Fuschia goes well for the theme as blood from those intense Hitchiccok espisodes for imagination sake! lol I like the them it has a bit of vampy elegance to it. Great colours and post. You must check out the films.

Rocker Chic said...

Kim,

I dk German but I am happy you told me about the website. The nail polish looks great I love all the colors.

P.s. I love the connection between Hitchcock and Chanel. I always learn neat things on your blog.

Jen @ redsolesandredwine said...

I don't know German but I know those colors are so pretty! I don't splurge for Chanel nail polishes but they seem to always have a signature color that sells out. Hitchcock. . . I've always been a bit scared of scary movies when I was younger so I never really saw many :)

All 3 colors are amazing, but Frenzy seems like the perfect shade of 'pale' that's just so hard to find. Can you believe that I've never seen any of these movies ?! ;/

Tinfoil Tiaras said...

I really like the frenzy colour but I personally find Chanel polishes too expensive (plus I'm not a huge fan of the brush). Great concept for an ad campaign though!
