In a statement released today, Caroline Lebar, Head Of Image And Communication at the Karl Lagerfeld fashion house, said, “This line of makeup truly reflects the Karl Lagerfeld brand universe and what Karl loved in makeup – he often used eyeshadows as color in his sketches.”
She added, “Karl liked it when a collaboration resonated with a brand and would make a real impact on many people.”
It looks like Karl Lagerfeld’s legacy is set to continue after L’Orèal Paris has confirmed that a makeup collaboration with the late designer is launching this autumn and we are pretty excited.
Lagerfeld had already “initiated” the partnership before his death and the makeup collection is going to “Channel Karl Lagerfeld’s iconic rock-chic style, fused with a sense of Parisian elegance that is both classic and effortless.”
News of the collab isn’t a massive surprise to many, the designer, after all, did launch his own makeup capsule collection with ModelCo. last year which featured over 50 products for the face, lips, eyes and some collectable accessories.
L’Orèal Paris’ new Global Brand President, Délphine Viguier-Hovasse said, “All of our fashion designer collaborations are an honour, but this one is particularly meaningful.”
We don’t yet know what exactly will be launched in the new Karl Lagerfeld x L’Orèal Paris collection but we’re told it’s going to drop online on 20th September 2019 and globally on the 27th September, the eve of Paris Fashion Week.
This might just be the biggest beauty collaboration of 2019. Baskets at the ready!
