Givenchy’s Artistic Director, Nicolas Degennes, imagined a “Romantique” mood when he created the makeup collection for Autumn 2009.
The dominant theme is vivid pink, a translucent, shimmery version that elevates the girly tone to an utterly chic and decidedly elegant effect, contrasted with shades of grey, beige and gold. A fresh, natural complexion recieves a texure contrast with uber-glossy lips and shimmery eyes. This dichotomy is also reflected in the striking packaging. Classic black cases are accented with the collection’s signature pink tone and metallic silver touches. The final result is simintounsly modern and timeless.
