Incorporating Alber Elbaz’s signature joyful approach to luxury, the limited-edition Lancôme Show Collection represents a whimsical, playful approach to beauty. This collaboration between Lancôme and legendary designer, Alber Elbaz, dresses the brand’s iconic eye makeup favorites plus the brand’s very first set of lashes in the designer’s signature flair.
“Beauty isn’t a question of being the right age or having the right look, it all comes down to attitude, individuality and character…” explained Elbaz.
Inspired by the idea of live performance, Lanvin artistic director created feminine “outfits” to personify Lancôme’s four best-selling mascaras: Doll, Drama, Définicils, and Hypnôse. The collection consists of these beloved mascaras, custom Color Design 5 Shadow & Liner Palettes, and a Lancôme’s very first line of false eyelashes in chic illustrated cases, all with collectable couture exteriors.
Elbaz envisioned a pair of long, sensual lashes framing beautiful eyes, focused on a darkened stage. From this image of electrifying, seductive anticipation, he dressed each Lancôme Show piece. Featuring Elbaz’s signature illustrated hearts, stars, polka dots, roses, and of course, eyes, each design represents a distinct, playful persona in the audience.
“When people think about makeup, they often think about disguising or hiding the truth,” said Alber Elbaz. “But true style is about bringing a woman’s individuality to the surface. Not hiding it or playing a role, but truly revealing it.”
