When Fashion and Makeup Play Together: Marchesa for Le Métier de Beauté Collection.

Even though New York Fashion Week is winding up, my head is definitely still in "fashion" mode. Especially today as the Marchesa show, one of my all time favorites, takes place. I thought this the perfect time to let you know about a beautiful collaboration between luxe beauty brand Le Métier de Beauté and Marchesa.

 “Each season,” explains Georgina Chapman, co-founder and designer of Marchesa, “Keren Craig and I introduce a new collection, but with the classic and consistent signature that is Marchesa – we transport our customers back to a time when luxury fashion meant the best in tailoring, design, fabric, etc.  When it came to launching a cosmetics collection, we wanted to do the same and we found immediately that Le Métier de Beauté shared these same core values.

The Collection takes the unparalleled textures and formulas Le Métier de Beauté is known for and transfixes them with the essence of Marchesa,” says Joanna Vorachek Austin, President of Le Métier de Beauté.  “From the sleek packaging and the innovative formulas to the flawless application, the Marchesa for Le Métier de Beauté collaboration brings the best of both brands to the forefront of luxury.

Talk about a true partnership in beauty!

Can we talk about the packaging for a minute? Have you ever seen such a beautiful sleek line? I think not! The mercurial silver for the outer packaging was directly inspired by Sandra Bullock’s silver bugle Marchesa Oscar dress from this past year’s awards. 

As much as I love the sleek packaging, I am even more in love with the products. To see  them up close, view all of the products over in the Le Métier de Beauté Collection Photo Gallery.
