This isn't the first time Lanvin has ventured into the beauty world; the French fashion house has just released its latest scent, Marry Me. But the H&M collaboration is the first time that designer Alber Elbaz will put the Lanvin name on color cosmetics. He's known for being particular about his vision — he and makeup artist Pat McGrath have parsed the details of red lipstick — and for preferring a woman to look smart over sexy. We're hoping Lanvin's limited-edition lipstick might provide a little bit of both.
Fashion fiends are giddy over the news that Lanvin for H&M is indeed happening. Along with clothing and accessories, the collection will include lipstick when it lands in stores on Nov. 23.
