Two of Paris’s well-loved make-up brands are going to collaborate this September – L’Oréal and Karl Lagerfeld. Inspired by the legendary late designer, the collection will channel Karl’s iconic rock-chic style, with a touch of Parisian elegance, for a collection that is both classic and effortless.
“This line of make-up truly reflects the Karl Lagerfeld brand universe and what Karl loved in make-up – he often used eyeshadows as colours in his sketches,“ said Caroline Lebar, Head of Image and Communication at Maison Karl Lagerfeld. “L’Oréal Paris has an inclusive message of beauty for all. Karl liked it when a collaboration resonated with his brand and would make a real impact to many people.”
The collection will combine L’Oréal’s expertise in colour and scientific research along with a campaign that is inspired by Lagerfeld’s most iconic quotes. Delphine Viguier, L’Oréal Paris’s Global Brand President says “ For L’Oréal Paris, all of our fashion designer collaborations are an honour, but this one is particularly meaningful. While Karl upturned the hierarchy of the landscape to democratize fashion, L’Oréal Paris is committed to making beauty according to women’s own rules and desires".
There is no doubt that even after his death, Karl Lagerfeld will continue to be an inspiration for the fashion and beauty industry for years to come. With Lagerfeld’s classically timeless-yet edgy designs fused with the creative minds at L’Oréal, we’re super excited to see what the collection has in store.
- The collection will be revealed to the world on September 20th and is set to release a week later during the Paris Fashion Week on September 27th.
