Lancôme’s limited edition make-up collaboration with Lanvin designer Alber Elbaz is set for launch on 15 June and to be honest, I’m starting to get a little bit excited about it.
Alber brings his clothing collections for Lanvin to life in a romantic, elegant and contemporary manner, while also adding a dash of whimsy. As such, I’m curious as to whether he will bring this make-up collection to life in the same manner? And if so, how will he apply his design ethos to make-up???
Lancôme are keeping quiet as to what the collection will include, however it is obvious that they are bursting with pride that Alber decided to collaborate with them.
“Alber 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 feminity 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.”
If the collaboration teaser ads, are anything to go by, this collaboration will be talked about for a very long time to come.
