So, the Estee Lauder Courreges collaboration is an interesting one… at the moment it’s flagging as US only for a March 2015 launch but if I hear differently, I’ll update. *Just heard it will be a spring launch into Selfridges.
What I find interesting is that the products are pushing the traditional EL boundaries – there’s a Hair Mascara for a start, as well as Lip Visor, a gloss with super-shine. To me the collection seems vintage futuristic – it’s captured the vision of the future from the perspective of the 1960s. For some reason, the Thunderbirds have shot into my head!
If you don’t know Andre Courreges as a fashion designer, this collection does really encapsulate what he’s all about. He was one of the first designers in the 1960s to incorporate PVC, metal and plastic in his designs – geometric in style and actually, almost impossible to wear!
You probably shouldn’t sit down in this one!

I’d be prepared to put money down to bet that you won’t have experienced a skin care texture like this before...
The Estee Lauder & Courrèges collaboration focusses on silver, black and white – all shades that are translatable to now.
I’d love to know which designer you’d like to see Estee Lauder collaborate with – I hope there are many more of these capsule collabs to come. Personally, I’d love to see a Mary Katrantzou range – imagine that!
