There aren’t many men-driven fashion companies that dive into the intricate world of cosmetics, while the select few who succeeded—one of them being Tom Ford—has truly reaped the fruits of their labor. There are enough room for another cosmetics line, which is exactly why we’re particularly excited with the news that Marc Jacobs has started planning his first cosmetics.
While we thought Marc Jacobs has a lot on his plate at the moment, with his third fragrance set to arrive in July, there’s no stopping his creative genius. WWD reports that Jacobs is working with Sephora to create the beauty line. Although the up-and-coming cosmetics line is still in its early stages, Jacobs expressed his excitement with this exciting new foray into women’s fashion. Speaking to WWD, Jacobs said “I see makeup, fragrance — everything, really — as an opportunity. The idea of choosing a color for your lip, or an eyeliner — it’s just such a delight. The ritual of waking up and making those choices is something people really enjoy. We currently are working on defining what Marc Jacobs cosmetics will be, what they’ll say, what makes them distinctive. I think that will take some time, but the first meeting was good.”
Although many designers have already pulled this stunt before, we’re especially excited for this project. Marc Jacobs is, after all, a clever designer who constantly surprises and amazes the fashion world.
