Marc by Marc Jacobs Spring Summer 2012
It was only a few weeks ago that we got ourselves all over-excited about Calvin Klein’s foray into makeup. Now there is news just in that Marc Jacobs is set to add to his impressive fragrance line-up and fashion line by entering the cosmetics market with a new beauty project in the form of a colour cosmetic collection. YAY!
According to WWD, Mr Jacobs is set to work on the project, said to be in its early planning stages, with US beauty giant Sephora. In an interview about his newest scent Dot, which is set to land in Blighty later this year he said, “Anything to me that is part of the joy, the ritual, of getting dressed - things that women enjoy like bags, shoes, fragrance, clothes, makeup - that’s what fashion’s about for me…I love the opportunity, wherever there is one, to adorn, to decorate, to scent, to dress. That’s what fashion’s all about. It’s not necessary, it’s something you want - it’s a fancy and a whim.”
It is rumoured that Marc had his very first meeting about the line only last week, but that he is incredibly excited about the plans. “I see makeup, fragrance - everything, really as an opportunity. The idea of choosing a colour for your lip, or an eyeliner - it’s just such a delight. The ritual of waking up and making those choices is something people really enjoy. We currently are working on defining what Marc Jacobs cosmetics will be, what they’ll say, what makes them distinctive. I think that will take some time, but the first meeting was good.”
As of yet there is no news about a launch date but needless to say we’re desperate to get our hands on the whole bloomin collection and are keeping everything crossed that it will be available in the UK too. What are you hoping to see from the line?
