Heiress, muse and fashion icon Daphne Guinness is the latest to hop on the MAC Cosmetics capsule collection bandwagon. With the addition of Guinness to MAC’s guest collaborators list, one has to wonder about the specific tastes of the head honchos over at the beauty empire. With previous collaborations that include Rodarte’s highly controversial Juarez-inspired collection and a team up with fashion’s golden boy of high-goth Gareth Pugh earlier this year, it’s becoming clear that the folks at MAC have quite the taste for the dark side of beauty.
Now, while the 21-unit collection has been unveiled, it will not be launched until December 26th. That’s right – the day after Christmas. Surely, there must be a good reason for that strategy, whatever it may be. The collection will feature soft blushes, femme lip glosses and liners, touches of noir, of course, and a fair share of purple hues. The international rollout of Daphne Guinness for MAC Cosmetics will commence January 2012.
