Come fashion week we can always rely on the backstage area at Lanvin to throw up a beauty trend or three well worth talking about. As a matter of (very good) habit the Lanvin backstage beauty teams tend, more often than not, to showcase look which boasts a fabulous focus of one kind or another on the eyes, so setting the smokey mood for the next six months.
With this eye expertise in mind, it is with great excitement this morning that we can reveal Lanvin Head Designer Alber Elbaz is set to team up with fashion-forward French beauty giant Lancôme to produce a limited edition line of colour cosmetics. Whoop!
In excitement for the upcoming collection, due on counter worldwide on the 15th June this year, Mr. Elbaz has done one of his famous sketches (below), while Lancôme seem (unsurprisingly) pretty stoked about the situation too:
“Alber Elbaz is, without a doubt, one of the world’s most influential fashion designers. But beyond that, he is also the most talented, explains Youcef S. Nabi, Lancôme President. His sense of luxury, his vision of femininity and that hint of audacity resonate perfectly with the new values of the Maison Lancôme. We are extremely proud and happy that, with us, he is set to channel his universe into the world of make-up for the very first time.”
Exciting huh? We’re holding our breath for scrumptious shadow palettes and mega mascaras – what would you like to see from the upcoming collaboration?
