So Ray-Ban are getting a fair bit of cyber promo since some dude decided to get a pair of their specs ‘tattooed’ onto his mush. YouTube it, I’m not adding to this viral nonsense, you wanna advertise on my blog Mr. Ban, you can pay me! … Oh yeah, that showed them, when I’ve mentioned it twice already…
Any hoo, speaking of tattoos, Chanel’s temporary ones, ‘Les Trompe L’Oeil de Chanel‘ are due for release on Chanel.com next month and I’m seriously considering paying the £49 (€?) for 55 transfer chains, pearls, birds and interlocking C’s. Based on designs by Peter Philips, they were one of the elements in the Paris SS10 show that stood out from the ultra-feminine collection. I think that’s actually the key to wearing them in a way that won’t look a bit rough and scary; if you’re going to go for it, make sure you’re wearing something amazingly girly.
The way the model has been ‘tattooed’ in this first picture’s really lovely; the make-up looks really delicate, and maybe it’s because the tattoo is of a little Swallow, but it just looks so pretty. I like the idea of wearing the tattoos on the neck and maybe around the wrists too, like tattoo jewellery I suppose.
