Pat McGrath, Bag Lady-------
Pat McGrath has been busy since the Fall shows ended in March. In addition to schooling us in the art of bronzer and spider lashes, the famed face painter has been hard at work consulting on color collections for both Dolce & Gabbana The Makeup and CoverGirl. Somewhere in between, she also managed to design a new collection of makeup bags for LeSportsac, her second for the brand. “They’re all based on the LipPerfection colors,” McGrath said over flavored shaved ice at a rooftop party at the Soho Mondrian last night. Available in three different shapes and colors—pink, berry, and a printed version adorned with lips and lipsticks—the upbeat range is a departure from the makeup guru’s signature wardrobe preference of black and more black. “They’re fun and summery,” she explained—not to mention fantastic organizers, something McGrath knows a thing or two about considering she travels with 75 cases of makeup each season. What’s next for the backstage beauty queen? More makeup bags, for one. “I can’t wait to do the next collection,” she said of her collaboration with the accessories company. And the Spring shows, of course—which, believe it or not, get underway in a short three months. Enjoy the summer while it lasts, fashion warriors.
