MAC x Prabal Gurung

On December 6th MAC will launch his second designer collaboration. 
This time they asked Prabal Gurung to design a collection. 

Prabal Gurung is one of the designers who dressed The Duchess of Cambridge, Diane Kruger, Cate Blanchett and more. For this collaboration he already was in talks for 2 year with MAC.  This results is a very luxurious packaging and a nice color pallet. He said about this collection that he wanted creating a truly beautiful packaging, that even wen it's done you don't want to trow it away. For the caged, interlocked pattern he was inspired by Damien Hirst and Sylvie Fleury. He also paid detailed attention how it's made, what looks like and what it feels like.

The packaging would be more heavy en it looks very luxurious in the pictures. 
Prices varies from 30 euros for a lipglass to 68 euros for a cream colour cream base. 
Lipsticks are 32 euros. 

MAC x Prabal Gurung is already available at www.maccosmetics.be and www.maccosmetics.nl
The collection will also available at the MAC Pro Stores. In Belgium you can find one in Antwerp and in the Netherlands it's Amsterdam and Den Haag.

Let's Get Sporty With Alexander Wang

Thursday I was invited to the presale from Alexander Wang x H&M. Alexander Wang is one of my favourite designers. 
So when H&M announced they would do a collaboration with him, I was very excited. 
When the first images from the collection was released I was a little bit disappointed. Later on my mind changed.

When I arrived at the H&M store in Antwerp for the pre-sale I was stoked. 
There where so many people in the waiting line, that I thought I couldn't get my hands on the items I want.
So when I entered H&M, I was little bit nervous. But I could manage everything I wanted it.
Normally I went very early up in the morning for the collection, so this presale invitation was great.

H&M was set in a sporty setting. With dancers and boxers in a ring, specially created for the event.
The music was set by Ouni, the DJ who set immediately the vibe from Alexander Wang runway shows. 
There was even mini sushi you could eat and a lot of champagne.
