Exclusive to Chanel at Spitalfields is the Rouge Allure Ink Parlour. Launched with the House’s AW16 line, Rouge Allure Ink – a matte liquid lip colour – belongs to the brand’s Le Rouge No.1 Collection, which both celebrates and further explores the power, glamour and sheer seductiveness of the colour red. The new ultra-fine Ink is exceptionally fluid and silky, gliding effortlessly onto the lips and adhering perfectly with a long-lasting finish. Upon application, it creates a matte texture in intense, remarkably bold colours.

Chanel at Spitalfields offers a bespoke lip menu and an interactive filter screen with which customers are able to sample Rouge Allure shades and experiment with different looks.
