Lancôme know how to do birthdays. In celebration of the first anniversary of makeup duo Rouge In Love and Vernis In Love, the French beauty house has teamed up with accessory designer, Olympia Le-Tan. Famed for her bookish clutch bags, Le-Tan has conjured up a special edition minaudière (aka ornamental case), containing her favourite shades of the In Love lipstick and nail polish. Olympia explains:
“I wanted to design the cover of an imaginary novel called ‘Rouge In Love’. My idea was to create a ‘mis-en-abyme’- a book within a book…The clasp and side instead of having a gold finish like my other designs, are silver, like a mirror. Perfect to look into during the evening if you want to touch up your makeup.”
Harvey Nichols Knightsbridge is the exclusive supplier of the Lancôme minaudière by Olympia Le-Tan.
