Last week, there was a flurry of excitement over news of a new fragrance from Marc Jacobs. Which teen starlet, we wondered, would be the face of Dot? But this week there’s even better news: Jacobs is working with Sephora on a full range of cosmetics.
The designer, who shows off his flair for color season after season, told WWD, “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.”
Jacobs let the news drop surprisingly early. He’s only had one meeting with the store and just started thinking about products and colors, which means no release date’s been set. “I think it will take some time,” the designer said. If anyone can hold the world’s attention for a year or two, it’s Jacobs.
