Breaking News From MAC

Here's the dish on a collaboration between MAC and the Ungaro Fashion house, under new designer Esteban Cortazar.

This is exciting, as I think Ungaro almost always gets it right, and have been a fan for years.

Pictures are from the fall Ungaro show that will inspire the line.

"MAC Cosmetics and Emanuel Ungaro will launch a cobranded, limited edition makeup line this October. Comprising eight to 12 products, it's inspired by the colors and textures concocted for Wednesday's show. Makeup artist Sharon Dowsett, working with MAC, took newbie designer Esteban Cortazar's lead for the look. "Esteban gave me very great inspiration," she said, using words such as "organic" and "pebble." "I went a bit further along that path and went to see Monet's water lilies at the Orangerie." MAC has had only one other color cosmetics-designer tie-in to date; last year, it produced a limited edition makeup collection with Alexander McQueen, which hit counters in fall 2007"
