MAC Launches Fashion Week Trend 2009 Collection

As designers deepen their fascination with all things architectural, from Raf Simmons’ structural dresses for Jil Sander to the futuristic, constructed “pod” shoes that we saw at Balenciaga, so too goes the modern face.

MAC Cosmetics Fashion Week Trend 2009

The collection by MAC Cosmetics to pay hommage to the trends of Fashion Week spotlights steely colors: a true ode to the strength of woman.

The geometry of the eyes is exquisite and important, and shades of graphic, graphite grey with a bluish sheen, or the concrete tones of a skyscraper — these are all voices of the current season.

Lips are dark and seductive, and nude. MAC Cosmetics also has a fragrance that’s part of this collection called Asphalt Flower which has glossy violet and iris petals cast in a sheen of vanilla and patchouli.
