Lancôme by Alber Elbaz, a collaboration between Lancôme and the iconic Lanvin designer, is set to debut globally on June 15th. Youcef Alber, Lancôme International president, said of the brand’s choice to partner with Elbaz: 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 Maison Lancôme. We are extremely proud and happy that he is set to channel his universe into the world of make-up for the very first time.
In the past, Lancôme has partnered with fashion designers L’Wren Scott and Olympia Le-Tan, while Lanvin has collaborated with H&M, and most recently with Ladurée last fall for a box of bubblegum-flavored macarons. The limited-edition collection will feature brightly-hued eyeshadows and lipsticks, as indicated by the teaser video (below), which Elbaz illustrated himself.
