Alber Elbaz for Lancome


For his very first foray into makeup, Alber Elbaz has teamed up with Lancome

to produce a line of cosmetics that will debut globally on June 15.


“Alber Elbaz is, without a doubt, one of the world’s most influential fashion designers,”

said Lancome International president Youcef Nabi.

“His sense of luxury, his vision of femininity and that hint of audacity

resonate perfectly with the new values of the Maison Lancome.”


Lancome announced the collection on Monday by posting a teaser video created

by Elbaz and Pascal Dangin of Box Studios to its YouTube page.

In it, illustrated women sitting in the front row of what appears to be

a fashion show are seen greeting each other, sending text messages,

and cheering in delight for an unseen something coming down the runway.

But what will the collaboration look like? That might not be known until the next video.
