One of London’s big fashion designers Gareth Pugh has now in cooperation with MAC designed a whole new makeup collection.
For those of you who do not know much about Gareth Pugh, he is a Sunderland-born fashion designer who has been labeled by some as “the new Alexander McQueen”, mainly because of his extreme vision and dark theatrical style. His collections are made up of gothic themes thought up from his squat in Peckham – his imagination and enthusiasm is what draws people to his shows. He first debuted at London Fashion Week as part of the Fashion East line-up in February 2005, showcasing his designs alongside heavyweights such as Karl Lagerfeld and John Galliano. Since then he has gone to design outfits for the likes of Kylie Minogue and Beth Ditto.
It’s a pretty full collection, and includes cream shadows, LipGlass, lipsticks, powder, liners, fake lashes, and even a makeup bag. The designer was inspired by everything from a hematite rock to butterfly wings. And those angular lashes are the result of him snipping away at a bunch of fake lashes that MAC sent him with the goal of making them non-lash-shaped. And while all of the packaging still has the signature MAC black sheen, it’s done in a much heavier material with a geometric “X” in the center.
I think its a very cool collection and you should look forward seeing it in Denmark in the beginning of february 🙂
