It’s always a great excitement to get news from the Maison Lancôme and the news tends to get even better when it contains an invite to the exceptional launch party of the Alber Elbaz x Lancôme collaboration.
Lancôme does not have an immediate link with fashion as they don’t have a couture house designing collections or truckloads of beautiful bags & shoes. However they have been collaborating with interesting fashion peeps and teamed up with the very talented Alber Elbaz and gave him carte blanche on redesigning the packaging of the ever so iconic Hypnôse collection. This pretty much resulted great looking mascara’s and eye shadows wrapped in the bold and eccentric delights of Mr. Elbaz himself.
I attended the Lancôme Show at the Trianon in Paris dressed in a creation of the very talented Belgian designer Jean Paul Lespagnard and in the great company of my Lancôme partner in crime Mr. Stefan Taverne. It was sweet pink galore, pure fashion extravaganza and smiling people all over the dancefloor, shaking & singing to the vibes of Texas and Sharleen Spiteri. It was fun, surprising and tantalizing… pretty much what I expected of a fun & talented designer like Alber Elbaz and the outstanding make-up brand of Lancôme.
