Lancôme has found a way to become even more glamorous. The French make-up house has collaborated with well-known designer fashion brand Lanvin. And when two French fashion houses have teamed up, something good is bound to come out!
This collaboration gave Albert Elbaz, the designing brain behind Lanvin, the opportunity to work on his very first make-up collection. “Albert Elbaz is, without a doubt, one of the world’s most influential fashion designers. But beyond that, he is also the most talented,”Youcef Nabi, the president of Lancôme International, told WWD. “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 in the world of make-up for the very first time”.
Albert Elbaz gave the packaging of this exclusive collection some of his signature designs. Albert Elbaz explained his inspiration for this collection; “Once I was in a fancy place where there was this group of people that were all shining. The shoes were shining, the hair was shining, the skin, watches and diamonds – but the eyes were not shining. I thought if I were to do a project I would love to do a ‘happy eye’ project to make the eyes shine”. Therefore he created some colourful designs with a playful touch to it. Of course the sexy and shiny eye sketch designs cannot be missed in this exclusive collection either!
The packaging of this limited edition collection, named Hypnôse Show, are all white and littered with festive hearts, polka dots and stars. The collection consists of Drama, Doll Eyes and Star mascara and besides that it also has several eye-shadow pallets. To complete this collection, Lancôme has added a set of beautiful falls lashes.
As of June 15, this festive limited edition collection will be available. While you’re waiting for its release, you can take a sneak peek at the following pictures. And don’t forget to check out the quirky animated video of Lancôme…
