Giambattista Valli said it best himself: “I’m very well known for dresses, no? And I thought it was very nice, the idea of dressing your lips.”
Same here, Giamba. And what a better way to do that than with his new flower-power lipstick line? The designer collaborated with MAC Cosmetics on a collection of lipsticks that are totally on-par with his covetable feminine frocks. The fresh hues, which will be available in summer 2015, range from a pale pink to the deepest of plums with a juicy peach, a rosy pink and a cherry red in between. Valli drew color inspiration from past collections to put out shades that would flatter all women.
MAC hit the nail on the head (he even brought them a cherry and asked them to match it—which they did), bringing Valli’s flowery vision full circle with brightly colored packaging. Though they have a matte finish, you can easily add a dose of shine with a touch of gloss. If this is the closest we’re going to get to Amal Clooney’s epic wedding weekend dress or Blake Lively’s enviable floral cocktail number, so be it. When it comes to design, Valli knows florals—and now, the same is true with makeup. And, let’s be honest, we’d rather a bouquet of lipsticks over flowers any day.
