Chanel, New York, this fall will launch a new beauty line, including skincare and other items, said executives close to the company. A consultant familiar with Chanel said the line likely will include skin treatment products. A Chanel spokeswoman wouldn't confirm or deny the reports, saying it was "premature" to comment. Chanel hired ad agency Frierson Mee & Kraft earlier this year to work on some unspecified creative projects related to the new line. Frierson President John Frierson wouldn't comment.
