Following Marc Jacobs’ revelation that he’s trying his hand in beauty, Lanvin creative director Alber Elbaz is also getting into the nitty-gritty of beauty as he teamed up with luxury cosmetics house Lancôme for his debut makeup collection.
“Alber Elbaz, is without a doubt, one of the world’s most influential fashion designers. But beyond that, he is also the most talented,” Lancôme President Youcef Nabi said in a statement.
Aside from noting the designer’s significant position in the fashion industry, Nabi emphasized that Elbaz’s “sense of luxury,” “vision of femininity,” and “hint of audacity” are traits familiar to their brand’s values.
“We are extremely proud and happy that, with us, he is set to channel his universe into the world of makeup for the very first time,” Nabi added.
Even though full details are still kept under wraps, we’re certain that this collection will be a reflection of Elbaz’s affinity for absolute liveliness and lavishness.
The limited-edition makeup line will launch worldwide on June 15. In the meantime, you can view the teaser video here, which might clue you in on this exciting collaboration.
