MAC & Carine Roitfield Collection for Fall 2012
Straight from the MAC press office, here is all the info I have. More to come!
M·A·C Cosmetics announced today a limited edition line of cosmetics with fashion visionary and muse Carine Roitfeld, to launch in Fall 2012. Carine collaborated on all creative aspects of the collection; package design, product names and colour palettes. The M·A·C Carine Roitfeld Collection features 20 pieces with a focus on eyes and brows that reflect Carine’s signature look: smoky eye, bold brows and nude lips.
A specially created Good Luck Star stencil makes its debut and can be seen in the collection image for which Carine was photographed by Mario Sorrenti. This marks the first time M·A·C has worked with the legendary photographer.
Until last year, Carine Roitfield was the longstanding editor of Vogue Paris. Prior to her editorial career, she worked with Mario Testino (a wonderful photographer) to produce images for major fashion brands including Gucci and YSL. Based on the wealth of her experience, I can’t wait to see what she and MAC have come up with.
The PR blurb mentions that Roitfield collaborated on packaging, which I assume means there is special packaging for this collection. This likely means higher prices, no Pro discounts, and no Back 2 MAC exchanges.
