2011_12_brompton-road-chanel.jpgConsummate French brand Chanel has taken some beauty inspiration from a surprising place: London. Their new Knightsbridge collection, which available exclusively in Harrods (and online for us in North America) has British fingerprints all over it. Their three new lipsticks, Hyde Park, Belgravia, and Kensington, plus a hot-pink gloss called Chelsea, share names with London neighborhoods. There’s also an almost-too-pretty-to-use blush/highlighter combo (pictured) called Brompton Road. Considering that the Harrods is on Brompton Road in Knightsbridge, we can see where it all starts to fit together.
