Lancôme x Alber Elbaz

For his first-ever makeup project, Lanvin creative director Alber Elbaz has teamed up with Lancôme on a limited edition collection that hit stores just last week. Elbaz reimagined Lancôme’s four best-selling mascaras as curvaceous female bodies, lending his unmistakeable design style to the iconic product packaging of Hypnôse Drama, Hypnôse Doll Lashes, Hypnôse Star, and Définicils. But these weren’t just any women, they were the stylish fashionistas often seen in the front rows during fashion week, as depicted in this adorable animated video for the collection.

The nine-piece collection also includes a set of false eyelashes and four different Color Design Eye Shadow Palettes, each of which features the same design motifs as on the four mascaras: stars, polka dots, lashed eyelids, and hearts. Ladies – get ’em while they are hot, because these are sure to fly off shelves in no time.

Lanvin for Ladurée

What better way to eat Ladurée macaroons than in a customized, limited edition box designed by Lanvin’s creative director Alber Elbaz?? As if taking a bite of those scrumptious little morsels that remind me of Paris wasn’t delightful enough, I can now do so while viewing Elbaz’s whimsical, colorful designs of women. All wrapped up in a perfect red grosgrain ribbon. They really didn’t spare any details, did they? Inside this special set are eight multicolored, bubblegum-flavored macaroons, which Elbaz chose because they remind him of “the bubble of childhood.”  Hmmm… a fashionable way to eat sweets that remind me of Paris designed by one of my favorite fashion houses? Don’t mind if I do!

Everything is better with a bow

close up – yum!
