Groans around the world can be heard at the mention of another designer collaboration. But actually this latest one is one that you can actually get excited about. I know I did! Designer Alber Elbaz will be joining Lancome in a creative collaboration to be released this June.
Currently working with Lanvin, the Moroccan-born designer will be collaborating on his first ever makeup line that is sure to excite the masses. Lancome has become more fashion forward in recent years by collaborating with other designers like L'Wren Scott, Chris Benz and Sophie Theallet all which were limited-edition makeup products as well as makeup bags. With his foray into the makeup world, Lancome is hoping that Alber Elbaz bring his immense fashion talents into the rich world of makeup. One can only envision at this time what the collection will bring as no preview is available at this time except for a bried ffifteen second teaser on Lancome's YouTube channel where we are teased by sketches of a hurried (and stressed) fashion publicist before what appears to be a Lancome fashion show, in which the eyeshadow shades are bright and fun. The clip ends with a sketch figure of Elbaz winking at the crowd. If the colors in the teaser are any indication of what Alber Elbaz and Lancome are working on then the collection will definitely be a must have.
In a statement to WWD Youcef Nabi, president of Lancome stated that,
“Alber Elbaz is, without a doubt, one of the world’s most influential fashion designers. But beyond that, he is also the most talented. His sense of luxury, his vision of femininity and that hint of audacity resonate perfectly with the new values of the Maison Lancome. We are extremely proud and happy that, with us, he is set to channel his universe in the world of makeup for the very first time.”
This isn't the first time though that a fashion designer has joined forces with a makeup line to create a designer collection. Karl Lagerfeld teamed up with Shu Uemura for a holiday collection last year and Lancome also has a collection coming out for Valentine's Day with Olympia Le-Tan.
