“It was an honest process,” explains Alber Elbaz, on the subject of his newest project—a perfume collaboration with fragrance maestro Frédéric Malle. Tucked upstairs at a corner table in Paris’ Café de Flore, Alber Elbaz and Frédéric Malle discuss “Superstitious” in conversation with Vogue Arabia. The perfume, set to launch in Spring 2017, represents Elbaz’s first foray into the world of fragrance and was first shared with VIP guests at Paris’ Hotel de Ville for the occasion of Elbaz’s Légion d’Honneur ceremony. Watch the video to learn more about the creative duo’s personal superstitions, how Elbaz thinks women can benefit from being “rounder,” and why he considers this novel collaboration to be “an Oriental one.”
