An eagle-eyed reader has pointed out the (currently) US only Lumiere Byzantines Palette just when I was bemoaning the fact Chanel haven’t done anything interesting in the limited edition stakes for a while. So, in a swift back-track, I’ll say that this puts them firmly back in the interesting stakes. It appears to be US only at the moment on a limited edition run of 1500 pieces..and it’s $250. Eek. I’m struggling enough as it is to swatch my Dior Mitzah palette because I just can’t bear to ‘spoil’ it but I’d be truly unable to do anything much other than gaze lovingly at Byzantines. Comprising 5 creme shades of gold, it’s nothing short of amazing.
