Lancôme’s couture make-up bags
Lancôme tapped three Paris based designers to each create a couture makeup bag.
LANCÔME has teamed up with 3 Parisian designers: Yiqing Yin, Alexandre Vauthier and Jacquemus. Each of the three couturiers has created a limited edition Lancôme makeup kit that can easily double as an evening bag.
The three designers were tasked with creating a makeup bag that could hold three of the brand’s star products: a tube of L’Absolu Rouge lipstick, a tube of Hypnôse Star mascara and the Hypnôse eyeshadow palette.
The French luxury brand had only one additional requirement: the signature Lancôme rose logo had to be visible somewhere on the makeup bags.
Alexandre Vauthier has presented a rectangular clutch in black silk satin with a metallic clasp and a gold-colored chain, allowing it to be worn on the shoulder or in the hand.
Jacquemus has created a cylindrical pouch in pastel pink waterproofed cotton. The model can be carried or worn around the waist on its white strap.
Yiqing Yin, meanwhile, designed a retro gem-shaped clutch in silk crepe with pale gold lamé. The bag has a removable chain with a pale gold finish.
These three makeup bags will be available from June 16. Price: €350 for the Jacquemus bag and €780 for the other two, including the Lancôme products.
