‘Le Rouge Givenchy, a magnetic rendez-vous between leather and pure color where fashion and beauty collide…
For the first time, Givenchy focuses all its skill and expertise in high qu ality leather goods on designing a lipstick like a Couture accessory.
More than a lipstick…Givenchy creates an unprecedented Couture object of desire that envelops the lips with intense colour in one stroke for a sensuously mat finish.’
This is how Givenchy describes their latest creation, Le Rouge. It’s UK & Ireland collection consists of 12 colours, ranging from nude to a deep sensual red.
In it’s usual way Givenchy has managed to seamlessly weave cosmetics & couture together to make something of a chic accessory. However, this time they have really outdone themselves….. The packaging is like a couture piece straight off Tisci’s catwalk. A salmac (a rare type of fused metal that Ricardo Tisci uses for his buckles, jewelery & handbag claps from) studded inspired piece wrapped in a luxurious soft lamb leather. Now I hear you just glazing over the leather statement, but this is definitely something to be sniffed at….. As in when you get your hands on yours, smell it!
Not only does the packaging smell amazing, now smell the lipstick itself, rich in colour, & castor oil free, the lipstick smells of soft blueberry. And to front the campaign? Well the lovely Liv Tyler has been snubbed by Givenchy as the face, with them opting for a more couture choice, muse & friend of Tisci himself Mariacarla Broscono. Maricarla has been featured in many high fashion houses collections & catwalks and is most known for her hair, walk & eyes, and is more recently known for being the face of Givenchys Dahlia Noir fragrance, & also appearing in their SS13 campaign with her 4 month old baby! Oh to be a model!!!
And thats not all, Givenchy have discontinued their fabulous Vernis Please! nail polish range only to be replaced by a new more couture range… Le Vernis. And their will be a matching Lipstick in the Le Rouge range.
The New collection will go on preview at Debenhams from tomorrow & then have their exclusive launch at Debehams from Monday 21st, only to be rolled out in the rest of their stores from the 4th of February! Although I wouldn’t wait until then, these lippys have been on demand & have already had waiting lists across the UK & Ireland, so get yours soon!
