Beauty is at the centre of fashion or to put it another way, fashion is created around beauty. Hence it is natural that fashion designers tend to dabble in beauty products. Roberto Cavalli, who runs his label with the support of his creative director wife Eva Cavalli, has unveiled ambitious plans for significant beauty projects. Eva was talking about the plans for her label in an interview given to WWD. She said that it has been her dream for some time now to be able to create and launch a color cosmetics collection.
That dream is coming true this year. Roberto hinted at the possibility of getting into hair dye also in the future sometime. The year 2012 is definitely going to be big year for them and they have plans for makeup that could materialize in the coming year. The Cavalli couple is driven by color and they are determined to do many things with color and cosmetics. However, this year their plate is full as the Italian fashion house is about to release the Roberto Cavalli signature women’s perfume. It will be followed by a new accessories line for the Class Roberto Cavalli label and then they are scheduled to collaborate on a project with watchmaker Franck Muller.
Many of the fashion houses have been active in expanding their beauty portfolios in the last one year. Dolce & Gabbana, Burberry and Tom Ford have all added new products and collections to their existing range. Prabal Gurung is another designer who is interested in developing a collection of his own. Beauty fits in perfectly with a fashion brand and helps extend it. We might have to wait a little bit for the expectedly vibrant cosmetic line from Cavalli.
