Marchesa’s New Makeup CollectionAug 19, 2010 @ 1:44 pm
In the fashion world, Marchesa designers Georgina Chapman and Keren Craig are known for their artfully draped, lushly tactile designs. So how did the two approach their very first makeup collection with prestige beauty brand Le Metier de Beaute? By using their designs as inspirations, of course. The shiny, ultra-sleek packaging was a direct reference to the silvery bugle dress the duo designed for Sandra Bullock at this year’s Oscars. “That dress was such an iconic moment for us,” the duo told us. “We wanted the products to feel just as glamorous. Like a mini Oscar and personal makeup artist rolled into one.” The collection—which consists of two makeup compacts, lip glosses and highlighting pens—will be at Bergdorf Goodman and Neiman Marcus starting in September. And lucky for us, the partnership between Marchesa and Le Metier de Beaute will be around for the next two years, at least, with new launches for spring, fall and holiday.
