The news of today was the announcement that Lancome will team up with Sonia Rykiel for an upcoming fall 2016 makeup collection. Launching at the end of summer 2016, the new Lancome Sonia Rykiel Collection is “full of colour, resolutely joyful with genuine freedom of tone inspired by the spirit of Saint-Germain-des-Prés”.
“In Lancôme I see the free and joyful Rykiel woman who makes her own choices,”. “A beauty that is sometimes natural, sometimes sophisticated but never subjected to diktats. Our two houses share a modern vision of femininity which, I believe, is tangible for today’s women.” explains Julie de Libran, Artistic Director of Sonia Rykiel.
International Launch Date – August 2016
Lancôme x Sonia Rykiel Fall 2016 Collection
“Sonia Rykiel is the ultimate incarnation of a certain idea of the Parisian. A woman who cultivates her joyfully emancipated freedom and refuses the imposed choice of depth or lightness, a woman who is simultaneously seductive and in love. It is the ‘Saint-Germain spirit‘, the idea of happiness in one’s own image, actively constructed every day.” said Françoise Lehmann, Managing Director of Lancôme International
At this point I’m only assuming that we are talking about a capsule collection, as Lancome did in its previous collaboration with Anthony Vaccarello, Alber Albaz and Jason Wu.
More details and promo photos will be released later into summer. 🙂
