Ditto for Mac while Nike goes West

June 8, 2012 in -e.showcase

beth-ditto-macBeth Ditto has tied with MAC for a new make-up line, while Nike has announced the Nike Air Yeezy 2 sneakers designed by Kanye West. Beth Ditto is making up with cosmetics brand MAC with her own makeup collection. The Gossip frontwoman has plumped for a strong colour palette with a pop art influence, and has come up with items such as the Near Beth Experience yellow nail lacquer, the Booyah orange lipstick and Greasepaint liner and eyeshadow pairing.

And the connection between music and make-up?

“When I was about five years old, MTV was made illegal in my hometown, so it felt like I was stuck on a deserted island with both Cyndi Lauper and Boy George’s music,” she tells MusingsOfAMuse.com. “They didn’t want you to pay attention only to their music or makeup – they wanted you to pay attention to both. I am obsessed with their music and also the looks they cultivated that ultimately defined the decade.”

West’s new shoe not only boasts a reptilian-like rear spike, it’s only pretty retro, featuring references to ancient civilizations, with hieroglyphics on the loop strap spelling out ‘YZY’ and the Roman numeral II etched onto the lace toggle. The Yeezy 2 prototype was also modelled on Kanye West’s foot.
West is no fashion world neophyte, having previously worked at Gap and Fendi, plus he has already designed shoes for Louis Vuitton, and boasts his own womenswear line.
