Olympia Le-Tan and Lancôme have teamed up to celebrate the success of the “Rouge in Love” series. Have a look at the result.
We can barely keep up with the multitude of interesting
collaborations that keep rolling in. If the Prabal Gurung x
Target has stimulated our appetite for novelty on the
fashion front, the new Olympia Le-Tan x Lancome collaboration for
Valentine's Day gives us whole new reasons to want to restock our
wardrobes and makeup kits. Known for her fabulous idea of turning
some of the most beloved classics from literature into lust-worthy
clutches that will instantly make a statement, Olympia Le-Tan used
her creativity to deliver an elegant option for the occasion.
Aside from being a perfect accessory when wanting to make a statement, the new minaudiere is perfect for having your seduction weapon with you at all times. The designer explains: "I wanted to design the cover of an imaginary novel called 'Rouge in Love'. My idea was to create a 'mise-en-abyme', a book within a book. It is held by two hands with painted nails and surrounded by little red and violet lips that seem to dance around. I love drawing lips, so it was the perfect opportunity... The clasp and side, instead of having a gold finish like my other designs, are silver, like a mirror. Perfect to look into during the evening if you want to touch up your make-up."
Seeing the new clutch created for the occasion we cannot help
but think that Lancôme made the right choice for their first
anniversary of the Rouge in Love and Vernis in Love make-up lines.
The anniversary launch is very limited edition. Only 100 kits
containing 6 nail polishes and 6 lipsticks have been created for
The adorable minaudiere along with the fab new offerings will retail for $1500 and are already available for pre-order. Still, if the ensemble is a bit too steep for your pockets, you can always opt for purchasing the lipsticks or nail polishes separately. The “In Love” nail polishes retail for only $15 per bottle while a lipstick in a seductive shade will only set you back $26.
