Sonia Rykiel & Lancome team up for makeup collection

Sonia Rykiel and Lancome have announced a collaboration for its Fall 2016 make-up collection.

Due to launch in August of this year, the new range is described by Lancome as full of color, resolutely joyful with genuine freedom of tone inspired by the spirit of Saint-Germain-des-Pres, the birthplace of the Rykiel fashion house.

'Sonia Rykiel is the ultimate incarnation of a certain idea of the Parisian. A woman who cultivates her joyfully emancipated freedom and refuses the imposed choice of depth or lightness, a woman who is simultaneously seductive and in love,' said Francoise Lehmann, managing director of Lancome International.

'In Lancome I see the free and joyful Rykiel woman who makes her own choices,' explained Julie de Libran, artistic director of Sonia Rykiel. 'A beauty that is sometimes natural, sometimes sophisticated but never subjected to diktats. Our two houses share a modern vision of femininity which, I believe, is tangible for today's women.'

Lancome has previously collaborated with the likes of Anthony Vaccarello, Alber Albaz and Jason Wu.
