COLOR STORY: Guerlain makeup is getting a makeover. The LVMH-owned firm announced its collaboration with Herve Van der Straeten for product packaging. The news confirms reports that appeared in these pages April 19. Van der Straeten, a designer who works in multiple industries including jewelry, has created the packaging for Guerlain's new long-lasting KissKiss lipsticks, due to be launched in August, for 23 euros, or $29 at current exchange rates, in France. Each of the 30 shades is encased in what resembles a column of golden cubes topped with a stamp of Guerlain's interlocking "g" symbol. The brand's makeup sales rose 20 percent last year over 2003.
LUSH BLOOMS: British bath-and-body brand Lush has been given the royal seal of approval this week at London's Chelsea Flower Show. The Wildlife Trust Lush Garden, sponsored by the fresh, handmade cosmetics retailer to mark its 10th anniversary, was paid a royal visit Monday by Prince Andrew and Princess Michael of Kent. The garden, created by landscape gardener Stephen Hall, won a silver medal and played host to other guests — rare breeds of butterflies, grasshoppers, stag beetles, blue tits, blackbirds and a vole — that visited the garden's plants, including lavender, rose and poppy.

For the holidays, @Burberry partnered with 20-year-old artist @blondeymccoy on a series of three outdoor murals in downtown Manhattan. The murals are McCoy’s interpretation of a Christmas eve party, the idea of charity and the spirit of family. His third mural, pictured here, is the most personal. The image depicts McCoy’s grandparents and father in London’s Trafalgar Square in the Seventies. “My work often features lots of sentimental objects.” #wwdeye

The @dior-sponsored @guggenheim international gala pre-party has a history of drawing cool-girl musical acts to serenade the crowd –– and last night was no exception. @haimtheband performed songs both new and old, and lured a star-studded audience with the likes of Rebecca Hall, Kate Mara, Mamoudou Athie and more. #wwdeye (📷: @lexieblacklock)
In a partnership between the @metopera and the @englishnationalopera, “Marnie” was born. The opera, with costumes sponsored by @mrporterlive, is an adaptation of the 1961 thriller by Winston Graham. Arianne Phillips, who created the costumes, is no rookie: She’s styled Madonna for her tours and created costumes for a myriad of films in the past. Read WWD’s interview with Phillips, where she talks about her inspiration for the opera’s costumes on WWD.com #wwdfashion
@barneysnyc took a different approach to their holiday windows this year. Instead of Christmas decor, Barneys tapped @thehaasbrothers to tell a story of positivity, gratitude and inclusivity via heartwarming silliness and humor. “It’s about kids and it’s about coming together and being family and loving each other,” said Simon Haas. #wwdfashion (📷: @joshuascottphoto)
