FACE FORWARD: Blackpinkâ€™s Lalisa ManobalÂ Ââ€” the Thai music sensation known simply as Lisa to the girl bandâ€™s legion of fans â€” has a new gig: as the global brand ambassador for the Celine Haute Parfumerie collection.
Lisa is known to have worked closely with the LVMH MoÃ«t Hennessy Louis Vuitton-owned houseâ€™s creative director Hedi Slimane since 2019, and she became Celineâ€™s global ambassador in September 2020.
The rapperâ€™s other fashion forays include a limited-edition collection inspired by her debut album, â€œLalisa,â€ which was released this past September. She also served as a juror for the 2021 Andam awards this summer.
Lisa now features in a Celine Haute Parfumerie campaign, which is lensed by Slimane. The black-and-white shot, posted on Celineâ€™s Instagram page on Thursday, shows her stretched gracefully along a metallic, very Parisian, staircase banister.
The high perfumery collection, which was launched in 2019 with 11 fragrances, draws on the designerâ€™s androgynous perspective, with the scents being for both men and women. They carry touches of tree moss, iris, rose or chypre notes. In line with the designerâ€™s penchant for full command, they are also meant to reflect Slimaneâ€™s personal history.
The fragrances are supposed to distill the memories of a moment, place or people dear to Slimane. All of the scents carry the designerâ€™s â€œpowdery olfactory signature,â€ according to the label at the time of launch. Celine described that as an â€œenveloping and sophisticated patina,â€ which is â€œprolonged by the elegance of a couture residual trail, capturing a fleeting memory and emotion as it wafts by.â€
