In January, Estée Lauder will launch a limited-edition Derek Lam collection, a makeup lineup that allows the designer to stick his toe into the color cosmetics pool.
While it’s unlikely that the collection will garner massive sales — industry sources estimated that the offering would generate roughly $1 million at retail in a tight lineup of about 100 specialty stores in North America and 80 overseas — the partnership moves the style needle forward for Lauder, which has been ramping up its designer game lately (case in point: new in-store employee uniforms by Opening Ceremony.) It’s the first major cosmetics fashion statement from Lauder since Tom Ford did a limited collection in 2005.
