I have been a diehard MAC cosmetics fan since high school. That was way back when it was a tiny Canadian company with one little over-crowded counter at the Bay. I would trek all the way downtown from the suburbs for one precious tube of my Russian Red. In fact, I can pretty accurately correlate the various phases of my life to the various favourite colours of my lipstick. Times have clearly changed! Gone are my MAC Russian Red days (replaced with a more subdued Viva Glam V). And in the meantime MAC has gone fabulously and spectacularly global.
In a different world, I am also a fan of Dutch product designer Marcel Wanders, who is perhaps most famous for his Droog knotted chair. The designer has done many capsule collections for large design companies such as Graham & Brown wallpaper, Bisazza tile, Cappellini and B&B Italia (etc. etc. etc.). He is also the co-founder and art director of Mooi.
So today I am particularly excited for the launch of the Marcel Wanders collection for MAC. This is Wanders’ first foray into the beauty world – and it’s admittedly an out-of-the-ordinary collaboration. But the products look great: equally futuristic and ornate. And I’m absoultely sure the make-up is typical-MAC-amazing too. Check them out:
I am particularly enamoured with the clutch and the perfume necklace. Just remember to pick these babies up quickly if you want them! MAC collections always sell out so quickly.
