Cosmetics brand Lancôme has joined forces with fashion designer, Alber Elbaz – who is currently the lead creative at fashion house Lanvin – to develop an exciting new make-up collection due to be unveiled this summer.
Elbaz is due to reveal his AW13 ready to wear collection for Lanvin in Paris at the end of next month and I expect we may see some traces of this joint beauty venture sashay themselves down the runway. From the YouTube video teaser, it appears as though a turquoise and purple motif may reveal themselves as the designer’s colour palette of choice.
Lancôme President, Youcef S. Nabi, said of the collaboration: “Alber Elbaz is, without a doubt, one of the world’s most influential fashion designers. 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.”
The Lancôme & Alber Elbaz collection is set to have its official global unveiling on 15 June, so mark your calendars.
