With his use of vibrant hues, we knew it was just a matter of time before Alber Elbaz entered the beauty world. The Lanvin designer is partnering with Lancôme on his first makeup project. The international beauty brand is putting on a big show for the collaboration with an illustrated YouTube clip teasing viewers on what beauty buffs might see when the collection is released in June. It was not only Elbaz’ sense of luxury, it was his eye for femininity and talent that drew Lancôme in as its focus has been on fashion for years. “Alber Elbaz is, without a doubt, one of the world’s most influential fashion designers,” Youcef Nabi, president of Lancôme International to Women’s Wear Daily. “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 Lancôme.” We’ve already set an alarm on our calendars!
