CHANEL Debuts New Lipstick Line
Chanel is placing their bets that 2010 will be the year that women say hello again to lipstick, as they get set to launch Rouge Coco Hydrating Creme Lip Colour, reports WWD.
The new Rouge Coco collection, which is launching in March, boasts a long-lasting, hydrating formulation, something Chanel hopes will lure lip-gloss addicts away from their beloved wands.
“Women seem to have forgotten how to apply lipstick,” Peter Phillips, Chanel’s global creative director for makeup, told WWD. “We have a whole generation of lip-gloss girls. Now, there’s absolutely nothing wrong with lip-gloss, but there is something so feminine about the act of applying lipstick. I want to make lipstick as easy to apply as lip gloss, and for a long-lasting formula to feel comfortable on the lips.”
Rouge Coco, which will retail for $30 a lipstick, will be replacing Chanel’s existing
Hydrabase line. Each of Rouge Coco’s 30 shades are inspired by Coco Chanel’s life. Mademoiselle is a soft pink, Camelia, a deep rose and Paris, a bright red, reports the paper.
French actress and Mrs. Johnny Depp, Vanessa Paradis, will star in the Rouge Coco advertising, which was shot by fashion photographer Jean-Baptiste Mondino, reports WWD.
“Rouge Coco is one of the most important launches from the House of Chanel in 2010,” John Galantic, Chanel’s U.S. president said to WWD.

Scent and the City:
Sarah Jessica Parker Launches New Scent
Sarah Jessica Parker’s newest fragrance, SJP NYC, includes a large dollop of her “Sex and the City” alter ego, Carrie Bradshaw — and Coty Prestige plans to leverage the relationship to the hilt.
While the actress kept mum on details related to the sequel of her 2008 blockbuster film, slated for a May release, Coty’s already working with the film’s producers and distributors to leverage the relationship, noted Carlos Timiraos, group vice president of global marketing, celebrity fragrances, for Coty Prestige.
“We did some activity around the first ‘Sex and the City’ movie, but didn’t have another new scent coming out at that time,” Timiraos noted. “After that movie did around $500 million globally, we bet on the expectation that lightning would strike twice, and we began developing SJP NYC.”
Originally a code name for the scent, the SJP NYC moniker stuck, in part due to the fragrance’s inspiration.
“A large part of the inspiration was what I now understand to be people’s impressions of seeing Carrie Bradshaw walk down the street and what feelings that evokes for her and for them — a real sense of freedom and possibilities, a love for the city around her and, of course, fashion,” Parker told WWD. “We started with this idea that we wanted to create something fun. We wanted to create a party in a bottle and reflect that in the packaging with a real sense of whimsy, fun and joie de vivre. And then we took it from there. Portability and fashion played key roles in the development of the packaging and overall concept.”
The scent, a fruity floral by Parker and Firmenich’s Honorine Blanc, has top notes of Italian mandarin, white osmanthus and wild red strawberries; a heart of gardenia, honeysuckle, mimosa and red rose damascenia, and a drydown of sandalwood, vanilla absolute, rum flavor and creamy musks.
The scent is now available at Macy’s and will be sold at 1,500 major beauty retailers.
