Chanel SoHo Collection
Chanel SoHo Collection
To celebrate the reopening of the CHANEL Boutique in SoHo, CHANEL Global Creative Director of Makeup Peter Philips has created a limited edition collection that echoes the spirit of SoHo. “For me, SoHo is a place where Bohemian ideals meet the toughness of the city… I love the tension and energy this creates.” says Peter Philips.
NOW AVAILABLE FOR PURCHASE ONLINE AT CHANEL.COM. BUY NOW OR FACE EBAY PRICES!
The SOHO STORY Collection is a study in extreme contrasts, partnering feminine pinks and roses with strong, industrial metallics. From pretty cheekbones to anthracite nails, tender creams and flashes of metal simultaneously reflect and contradict each other. “I had a specific girl in mind who is both hard and soft. A girl who discovers a new city, a new life.” adds Peter Philips. “This is a very special kind of New York woman. She is innocent, but she has a steely determination that fuels the city.”
The collection’s SOHO DE CHANEL Exclusive Creation reflects a Pop Art influence. Stamped with the four letters of SoHo, this silky powder comes in a delicate palette of shades and, when dusted across the face, creates a subtle, natural glow.
Stupendous, Steel, Strong, Stunning, Stunt, Star: strong names that reflect the candance, the musical rhythm, the heartbeat of SoHo.
- SoHo de Chanel ($65.00)
- Stupendous Quadra Eye Shadow ($56.00)
- Stunning Rouge Coco ($30.00)
- Stunt Rouge Allure Laque ($32.00)

Okay, I can’t get over how adorable Peter Philips is! I love listening to him speak! LOL. Anyway…those nail polishes are stunning. Probably won’t be available in Canada but I’ll dream! :p
Holt’s is getting it.
Yeah, the polishes are what I’m interested in too…
Vancouver holts already has it to look at (no tester) and are doing pre-sales. I want to see swatches first. It looks pretty in the bottle, but I want to see if it’s close to anything I already have.
I bought it yesterday at Holt Renfrew already!
which holt did u get it at? i know i’m probably too late to the game but i just went to vancouver holt and they haven’t even heard of it?
Just so everyone knows this is mostly sold out everwhere BUT Belk department stores (it’s a southern chain) is just now getting this collection this week November 4, 2010. I just purchased one of everything. Call Belk in Charlotte, NC or Columbia, SC or Asheville, NC to get this collection! They will ship to anywhere in the US.
ooh i love the nail polish colours and i love the names especially ‘strong’
a new RAL!!!! i want it even though i have no idea what the color is
HAHA! ME TOO!
I didn’t even know there was a soho in NY, I thought there was only the London one! but i suppose a lot of places in the US are named after places in Europe so figures! This looks pretty, specially the nail polish! But i don’t think i’ll be going to NY to get some!
It stands for “South of Houston,” SoHo for short. It wasn’t named after Soho in the UK. 🙂
Actually, SoHo in the UK was established in 1536. The SoHo in Houston may be named after something else, but the SoHo in NYC is well known for being named after the one in London “The Soho name has been imitated by other entertainment and restaurant districts such as Soho, Hong Kong; SoHo, New York; and Palermo Soho, Buenos Aires” (sourced from Wikipedia)
No, what Judith was saying was that SoHo in NYC stands for “South of Houston.” She wasn’t saying there’s a SoHo in Houston that means that.
According to Wikipedia:
“Seeking to identify their group geographically, they consulted a city Planning Commission map that described the area as “South of Houston”, “Houston” being Houston Street. This was shortened to “SoHo”, the group voted to call itself the SoHo Artists Association and the name for the neighborhood stuck.”
So, the SoHo in NYC is named that because the district is literally South (So) of Houston (Ho) St.
Interesting! Here in Southern California we also have Noho, Soho, and Weho with the “ho” standing for Hollywood.
The eyeshadows and the steel nailpolish look amazing!! Too bad they won’t be available in my country. Hopefully ebay will answer my prayers..at a high cost of course 🙁
Thanks Christine! I have been waiting for this post 🙂 I can’t wait!!! 🙂 I want the quad, glossimer, and maybe the palette and lipstick…
I it just me or is Strong nailpolish the same as Paradoxal ?
I saw photos someone posted on thepurseforum, and it looks more berry/purple and less gray.
No, I don’t think it is. Strong seems to be a lot darker from the swatches I have seen on other blogs.
No, they are quite different, especially on nails as opposed to just looking at the bottles. Strong reminds me of blackberries – almost black on the nails with flecks of red shimmer, whereas paradoxal is a light, purpley, taupey color.
They have nothing in common actually – I own both – not the color, nor the formula
I just want that cool looking compact, LOL.
I’m really falling in love with Chanel! I have two of the perfumes, and I’m gonna buy my third as a birthday present to myself in December! If I could afford it I would dive into some of their makeup and skincare.
I’m going to go to the boutique on the 11th to get a few things from this collection. Gorgeous. I can’t wait! I have to go to space.nk anyway. Works out!
Definitely call & see if you can put them on hold!
Oooh that Steel nail polish is calling my name and so is that Soho blush/highlighting compact. I’ll definitely put this on my NYC list when I visit this month. SO excited!!
Do you know if this will be available at all at Nordie’s or Nordie’s online? Or even Neiman’s? I love the dark deep red nail polish and the eyeshadow quad!
Chanel.com & SoHo boutique is all they said!
Just been to both, and Bloomies, and Saks – nope, they won’t get this collection. Was lucky to pick one of the last compacts at Soho boutique, and it’s already sold out at Chanel.com.
will this collection and the khaki nail polish collection be available at chanel boutiques in Canada?
I’m not sure… my info just says Chanel.com and SoHo boutique.
Stupendous really looks like Mystic Eyes.
I agree. Which is why I need to stop myself from buying Stupendous! It looks like they just swapped out the copper shade in Mystic Eyes for a beige in this quad. It may not be exactly the same but the colors are definitely similar in pictures. I would love to see a swatch of the Stunning Rouge Coco though. Everything looks so beautiful in pictures! I just worry that I’m not going to get much use out of them to justify the spending (esp that highlighter!).
i got a few things from this collection. it is veryyyyyyyy pretty 🙂
Gotta, gotta have these polishes. My husband works on Spring Street but I feel bad asking him to go to Chanel on FNO. Maybe if I order online I will have them by Friday… 🙂
Christine – Thank you, and keep up the great work!
ROFL — I would shamelessly send him on a “Honey Do” 😀 Hope you enjoy. I ordered the Highlighting Powder and Strong nail lacquer.
That eyeshadow quad and “Steel” nailpolish are GORGEOUS!
Too bad i’ll leave just before this comes out! I’ll have to beg my sister to swatch and buy for me
Is it just me or is “steel” a dead ringer for noir ceramic?
And the purple one looks just like the Paradoxal to me.
It CAN be just the photos… 😉
!!! Those nail polishes are to die for! I love them *__* I can’t wait till Australia gets them!
Hi Celina, Australia got the collection about a week ago, but only Sydney Myer Chanel makeup studio has the items. Australia didn’t get the rouge coco or rouge allure laque, though, but the rest of the collection is beautiful. Better call them ASAP as I believe the collection is selling out fast….their number is (02) 9238 9114. Also, they are the only chanel counter who will be getting the les khaki nail collection which is coming out soon (put your name down on their lists if you’re interested as I think they will be sold out on the waiting list alone). Hope this helps!
Actually, the Chanel counter at the Nordstrom I go is also getting the Les Khaki collection as well. This is in Bellevue, Washington. They are making an event out of it for Vogue’s Fashion night or something I believe, it is happening on the 10th. 🙂
Those Chanel nail polishes are really hot now, eh?
Always find Coco Chanel to be such an inspiration…
While all the shades are amazing, I hate the brush and I hate the formula. I wish they’d do something about it – I don’t like forking out money for stuff I need to adjust.
Oooooh. This seems a little unusual for Chanel but the nail laquers look very respectable shades as usual…
Just for you Australian girls out there, the SOHO collection is already available at Sydney Myer’s makeup studio (I believe they got the collection about a week ago) but unfortunately they didn’t get the Stunning rouge coco or the Stunt rouge allure laque. I think it’s selling pretty fast!
Is it already available online? I thought it would be…on the 7th! Both Strong & Steel are out of stock.
It’s been out of stock as soon as I saw it, so I think it’s just up for you to drool over for now.
this won’t be avaliable internationally will it? I’ loving Stunning and SoHo =)
My info just says chanel.com and SoHo Boutique, though Australia got a few of the products in already!
that doesn’t quite work for me since I live in Portugal and I can’t use Internet shopping =(
thanks for the info anyway =)
Love the look of this new collection! Does anyone know if it will be available to purchase in the UK??! I’m ever hopeful!! 🙂
I heard Australia got some of these products in (but not all) – my info only indicates chanel.com and the SoHo boutique that’s reopening!
Thanks Christine for the nice pictures, especially of the lipstick. These are the best I have seen! 🙂 Now I REALLY want the quad & lipstick, think I will pass on the glossimer though.
Chanel has really put a lot of emphasis on their nail polishes lately. That promo video pretty much only features the model’s nails. it’s an interesting choice on chanel’s part, but with the total domination of Jade I guess that makes sense.
I just ordered the eyeshadow, the two nail polishes, and the lipstick! WAHOO! Gosh, I hope it is good — I have never ordered something sight unseen before, especially where I am not sure of the return policy!
OMG! LOL! I hope you loveeeeeee 🙂
They are great about Returns they even send a shipping label so you can ship it back to them at no charge. I ordered the two nail polish and that’s it. I kind of want the highlighter / blush but I am not really into plum on my cheeks.
I believe it is a free return policy
Ahhh my god I want that highlighting powder so bad but 65 dollars heck no!
Hmmm, I’m sitting here deciding whether to enter my CC info. I’m a sucker for highlighting powders, I’ve learnt. Not sure how this would work on my ivory complexion. It’s GORGEOUS!
It is up!!
Argh! Why can’t this be released in Canada as well?!? I really don’t like purchasing things unseen but I seriously might cave in…sigh. Oh Chanel, the woes my bank account is going through because of you.
I believe it’s international since I saw someone from Macau selling on eBay. Both nail polishes are up for purchase on chanel.com. GO get it before it’s sold out!
Are these limited edition????????????
Does anyone know if the UK will get this collection and if so, when? x
My info doesn’t state anything about elsewhere, just chanel.com & SoHo boutique. A few Australian readers said they saw some pieces at their Boutique store!
I ordered Stunning lipstick and that’s it! (So proud of myself) I hope I don’t regret not getting the Laque… I talked myself out of the blush/highlighter because I know I’ll never use it.
What did you order Christine?
One of everything!
I agree withe the poster who noticed the similarity to Mystic Eyes (one of my go-to quads). I won’t be buying this one. Love the look of the highlighter and may check that out, although it certainly isn’t indispensable.
I’m sitting here comparing christine’s pic w/ my mystic eyes quad. thanks… ya’ll just saved me $56 plus shipping. Which is good, since I went beserk for Fab Felines
I ordered the highlighter/blush,eyeshadow quad(even though I have mystic eyes and it’s probably really similiar) but I couldn’t resist! I also got mademoiselle rouge coco. I’ve heard good thing about it and have been wanting it for a long time. I hope I like it!
I caved. Ordered the highlighting power and Strong nail lacquer. 😀
I like the shades of the nail polishes. I placed an order for both Steel and Strong today.
For those of you living in the U.S., here is a free shipping code you can use: 0810SHIP
It’s good until 11:59 pm EST, Monday Sept 6.
Thanks so much 4 the shipping code! It saved me $8.99 , I ordered the palette, can’t wait 2 get it!
Am I the only one who can’t figure out where to input the promo code? I receive promo codes like these in my email but never get to use them because I can’t find the box to input them. I checked the FAQ and it says:
1. Enter your offer code on the “Payment Information” section of the “Billing” page.
2. Type in the rest of the required information.
3. Click “Continue Checkout” and the offer will be applied to your order.
But the only thing it lets me input is the credit card info. I even wrote an email to customer support but got no response. Somebody help!!!
I actually finally figured out where to put it in. The box is on the first page, before you check out. I don’t know why I never saw that box before. Maybe I was too tired and going blind with desire ;p
I had trouble with finding where to put the code also. I had to refresh and start all over again. I really think there is a system problem with that because it was not there the first few times for me and then all of a sudden it was.
I’m glad to know I’m not the only one. So it’s not my imagination that that box may not have been there the other times I tried. I could swear I’d never seen it until this morning. It was right under the “select shipping” box.
OMG this collection looks sooooo good. I want to buy the whole collection the blush/highligther, the quad, the nail polishes (both) and the lipstick and gloss. Oh boi…I think I may end up spending a fortune 🙁
For all the Cdn ladies, I’ve confirmed that this collection is only available at Holt Renfrew Bloor location and the Chanel boutique. Also, the lipstick and lip lacquer are not available here as they’re exclusive to the US residents or the SoHo location or something like that (I can’t remember – stopped paying attention to the SA as soon as he said that they were not available in Canada). 🙁
The polishes are FANTASTIC!!! I need a swatch! 😀
living in Europe seems so unfair…:( and the ebay prices are killing. I was just wandering if ther’s a chance anyone could do some Cahnel online shopping for me?
is this collection still available? i don’t see it on chanel.com…
The quad is now out of stock.
Chanel-SOHO, I love you
lipstick, laque, and glossimer – out of stock.
Futile is a dead ringer for the Star gloss. I have both and when you put them next to each other they are a perfect match.
is this collection available at counters too?? 🙁 i really want stunninggggg
I’ve heard rumors it will make its way to at least some counters in October but nothing confirmed.
To Chanel Fans,
selfridges will have the SoHo collection on friday 15th October 2010
so get yourself down there at 9.30.
I got mine in the mail today and love everything I got! and the little bag it comes with, so cute! 🙂 I purchased the quad, lipstick, and laque…I love the quad, I don’t have any of the colors in the quad…so pretty.
