Lakshmi and MAC collaborate on capsule collection

What do you get when you pair a world-famous model, TV host and author with a popular makeup brand?

According to InStylethe result is a luxurious capsule collaboration between Padma Lakshmi and MAC Cosmetics. The pair’s first collection will feature “brushes, rich lip hues in gloss and traditional bullet form, an eyeshadow quad and warm blush shades,” says InStyle, all in a rich gold packaging that makes the collection just as elegant as it is beautiful.

Despite the luxe look, InStyle reports that the line’s price range is comparable to MAC’s regular prices, with items ranging from $22 to $43.50.

However, the collection won’t be standard fare for the brand; InStyle says that while Lakshmi’s line will go on sale on March 15, it will be phased out by April, so fans will have to scurry to snag their products.

 

Macy’s secures Anna Sui capsule collection

High fashion is coming to Macy’s this fall, and this is one collaboration you won’t want to miss.

According to FashionistaAnna Sui will be releasing a capsule collection with Macy’s this September, creating a limited-edition line in collaboration with INC International Concepts (a Macy’s house label). The move comes in an attempt to increase the retailer’s exclusive options, reports Fashionista, which aims to remedy their branding strategy.

While the Anna Sui x INC collaboration attempts to bolster Macy’s offerings, make no mistake: the signature style of Anna Sui will remain just as fashionable as ever.

Fashionista says Macy’s GVP of Private Brand Marketing Strategy Tim Reid said in a release announcing the collection that shoppers can “expect for Sui’s ‘signature whismy and eclectic edge’ to be well-represented, with what the release describes as ‘feminine prairie accents and hints of glamour with lace details, fringe and embroidered florals.'”

The collection will be available in early September, says Fashionista, with 25 Macy’s stores and Macys.com carrying the line of men’s apparel, as well as women’s apparel, shoes, handbags and jewelry.
