Lancôme Hypnôse Show, featuring the most emblematic range of Lancôme mascaras, dressed by Alber Elbaz

Since we are living in – and some of us are probably also very literally living the decade of collaborations, here is a brand new and a rather great one from Lanvin’s Creative Director Alber Elbaz, who teamed up with the French beauty house, Lancôme for the sake of a makeup collaboration. The final video is the reveal of the capsule collection just went live on Monday, June 3rd. The full length animation is the lifelike visualisation of the whole buzzing fashion week atmosphere, where flashes, heels, makeup, and iPads take over, while displaying beautifully bright colours, a sense of humor and those iconic Alber Elbaz illustrations. The limited-edition makeup collection is set to be released on June 15th and will include mascaras, pigments, eyeshadows and – for the first time at Lancôme – exclusive false lashes. It’s a happy project – like we needed it – it’s about a story, a tale; it’s both vivid, fun, beautiful, enviable, but most of all – as Elbaz explained: ‘It’s a project which makes your eyes shine, literally, but notably in a figurative sense…’ Can’t wait to get my hands on one!

Da wir in einem Zeitalter der Zusammenarbeit leben – und einige von uns leben dies wahrscheinlich geradezu buchstäblich aus – ist hier eine brandneue und geradezu großartige von Lanvins Creative Director Alber Elbaz, der sich mit dem französischen Kosmetikhaus Lancôme zusammengetan hat, um gemeinsam Make-up zu kreieren.

I am a regular at Cocoon Inn, an amazing beauty resort at the very north of Germany. When I go there I know I will have fun, lovely conversations while having my manicure or a good relax during a lomi-lomi massage.

The people who work there are heartful and they make me feel beautiful every single time I leave the saloon. The secret of them doing a very professional job must be that they do it with heart and passion. Besides, Cocoon Inn has fantastic, high quality beauty products – Sensai from Kanebo, Campos Ibiza, OPI, Sparitual and Panpuri.

It is amazing how diverse effects can one achieve through styling, which is a proper creative art-form, and has an essential impact on the way people perceive the catwalk show – as a collective experience of designs, styling and rhythms. Styling varies from zero to excessive, by giving you the feel that the whole combination of hair do – make-up – jewels – shoes and garments are meant to be presented together. Styling is an art-form without boundaries – from fur crests through bejeweled ears to makeup-less faces the season’s tagline had been set; everything goes!

Es ist bemerkenswert was für unterschiedliche Effekte man mit Styling erreichen kann, welches eine wahre kreative Kunstform darstellt, und einen wesentlichen Einfluss drauf hat, wie Menschen die Show auf dem Catwalk wahrnehmen – als eine kollektives Erlebnis aus Designs, Styling und Rhythmus. Das Styling variiert zwischen kaum vorhanden und übertrieben, indem es vermittelt, dass die ganze Kombination aus Frisur – Make-up – Schmuck – Schuhen –  Kleidung dafür vorbestimmt ist, zusammen präsentiert zu werden. Styling ist eine Kunstform ohne Grenzen – von Fellhauben über beschmückten Ohren bis zu Gesichtern ohne Make-up – der Titel des Saison ist: Alles ist möglich!
