Aerin Lauder's Private Collection
You might have noticed that I have been MIA since Wednesday.
I had a chance to hang out with the fabulous Total Beauty team along with some amazing fellow bloggers in NYC.
I will dish more on both later...I promise!
One of the many highlights of my brief stay in NYC was a visit to the corporate offices of Estee Lauder. Erika from Makeup Bag, Michelle from All Lacquered Up and I got a sneak peek of the exclusive Private Collection that will be available at Bergdorf Goodman. The launch of a special boutique will be held this morning at 10. For the NYC ladies...the products will be displayed across from the Estee Lauder counter.
This collection was created by Aerin Lauder and features re-interpreted pieces from the Lauder archives along with some of her favorite things including a pair of Lanvin ballet slippers.
She collaborated with Lanvin to create a lovely shade of gold.
The color is stunning and reminded me of an antique charm bracelet.
The ballet slippers will retail for $395.
My personal favorite from the entire collection was the oversized Golden Alligator Bronze Goddess compact. This vintage inspired goodie will retail for $125. I can not imagine anything more fabulous for my Xmas stocking!
Erika from Makeup Bag adored the paisley pendant while Michelle from All Lacquered Up fell under the spell of the Sea Anemone collectible. This piece will retail for $1000.
Lauder worked with photographer Viktor Skrebneski to re-issue a 20th anniversary edition of his photography book, Five Beautiful Women. The coffee table book features Skrebneski’s photographs of Estée Lauder models from the 1960’s and 1970’s. There are some stunning pictures of Willow Bay. The book will retail for $125.
If you become smitten with any of the products shown call Bergdorf Goodman to place an order. There are 100 pieces in the collection ranging from brushes to a beaded evening purse. I am going to guess that the flats and the compact will fly off the shelves so you know the drill....do not lollygag.
