Start saving up now! Come this summer, you’ll want to purchase every product in Alber Elbaz’s cosmetics line for Lancôme. The Lanvin designer is teaming up with the Parisian cosmetics brand to break into the beauty industry with the release of a limited edition makeup collection on June 15.
Lancôme seems quite excited to have the designer on board for this project. A spokesperson for the brand stated that Alber Elbaz possesses the unique ability to combine femininity with a “quirky and couture style,” which creates a contemporary type of luxury. Youcef Nabi, the president of Lancôme International, also thinks highly of the designer. In a statement about the upcoming collection, he said,
“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 Lancôme. 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.”
Alber Elbaz and Lancôme are keeping the details under wraps for now, so we have yet to see what any of the products will look like. The June issue of Elle will contain the first preview of the line. As we wait impatiently for the unveiling, we have only the sketch above and the teaser video from Lancôme’s YouTube channel below to pacify us. If the sketches Elbaz did for the clip are any indication, there’ll be plenty of brightly colored eye shadows and red lipsticks and nail polishes!
