After Karl Lagerfeld's collaboration with Shu Uemura last year, we didn't think the merging of fashion and beauty could get much better. Elbaz's quirky, playful take on style meets blusher, lipstick and mascara? Yes, please. And don't even get us started on our hopes for the packaging...
In their press release, the brand's president said, "[Elbaz's] sense of luxury, his vision of femininity and that hint of audacity resonate perfectly with the new values of the Maison Lancome. We are extremely proud and happy that, with us, he is set to channel his universe into the world of make-up for the very first time".
We're pretty chuffed, too. There's no word on what's in store as yet, but we do know that we can expect to see the collection in full when it's revealed to the world on June 15th. Five months and counting.
