Marc Jacobs is planning a cosmetics line!
There isn't much left which hasn't had Marc Jacobs stamp on it, except cosmetics. That is until now! The designer has revealed that he is in the early stages of planning a colour cosmetics line. It will be an extension of his fragrance empire with Jacobs attending his first meeting with Sephora last week.
Although it is early days, he says he is excited to be diving into the world of makeup. "Anything to me that is part of the joy, the ritual, of getting dressed - things that women enjoy like bags, shoes, fragrance, clothes, makeup - that's what fashion's about for me".
"I love the opportunity, wherever there is one, to adorn, to decorate, to scent, to dress. That's what fashion's all about. It's not necessary, it's something you want - it's a fancy and a whim."
While little else is known about the line such as a launch date, Jacobs did add they are currently in the process of working out what exactly a Marc Jacobs cosmetics line would entail.
"I see makeup, fragrance - everything, really - as an opportunity. The idea of choosing a color for your lip, or an eyeliner - it's just such a delight. The ritual of waking up and making those choices is something people really enjoy. We currently are working on defining what Marc Jacobs cosmetics will be, what they'll say, what makes them distinctive. I think that will take some time, but the first meeting was good."
I can't wait to hear what the ladies over at Kiss and Makeup will think about this!
