Lancôme has announced an exclusive make-up collection by fashion designer Anthony Vaccarello
Lancôme has announced the creation of an exclusive make-up collection by fashion designer Anthony Vaccarello.
The project forms part of a long tradition at Lancôme: since the brand’s creation 80 years ago, it has continually collaborated with the worlds of art and fashion.
Vaccarello's love of "liberated and uncompromising beauty" makes him the a natural partner, says the brand. "Anthony Vaccarello has a gift for redefining the contours of a strong, modern vision of femininity," commented Francoise Lehmann, Lancôme's International General Director. "We are thrilled he has agreed to join us in this collaboration, taking over from talents such as Proenza Schouler, Alber Elbaz and, more recently, Yiqin Ying, Alexandre Vauthier and Jacquemus. Entrusting a selection of our most iconic products to a designer with such a unique creative universe is an incredibly energising and enriching experience."
"I was inspired by the Lancôme woman's femininity and charisma – a special kind of elegance that's never lifeless nor frozen. For me, Lancome embodies the philosophy of understated beauty: it's something quintessentially French," explained the designer.
The Anthony Vaccarello for Lancôme limited editions will be available from October 2015 at Net-a-Porter online. Further details on the collection will be unveiled soon.
