The Ritualist is looking to expand the skin-care habits of its clients.The business brings its aestheticians to clients' home for facials and has teamed with BeautyRx by Dr. Schultz to add a peel to its service offerings. The addition is part of The Ritualist Discovery Series, a new initiative where the business will add a partnership with a new skin-care provider every six weeks.The Ritualist has added Dr. Schultz’s BeautyRx Tetrafoliant 30% Peel, which aims to give customers brighter, smoother skin after a two-minute treatment. The service is offered in the office of New York dermatologist Dr. Schultz or at The Peel Bar, a quick-stop peel service from the brand. From The Ritualist, the peel will cost $89 as a stand-alone treatment or $50 as an add-on to a facial.“The launch of the Peel Bar was designed to give our famed two-minute, no-irritation peels to everyone at an affordable price and our new partnership with The Ritualist is the next step in making our peels available to all, on-demand, even in their homes,” said Stuart Schultz, president of BeautyRx.“There is a demand for newness, and we just want to supply this demand, but in a safe way,” said Marta Cros, founder of The Ritualist, who said the Discovery Series was prompted in part by customer requests. “We know people like trying new things, but we also know a lot of them have had bad experiences,” she said, adding those bad experiences are often what lead customers to book facials through her company in the first place.“We feel it’s very important to have the guidance of an aesthetician…who can tell you ‘Listen, this is your skin type, these are the main concerns you have and these are the main things you should be using,’” Cros said.From a business standpoint, Cros expects additional service offerings to result in more appointment bookings. Products, both from Apto (the brand The Ritualist uses) and the businesses that participate in the Discovery Series will be available online, or from aestheticians at people’s homes, Cros said.Next up in the Discovery Series is a partnership with South Korean skin-care expert Glow Recipe that starts Nov. 15, according to Cros. New offerings will be rolled out every six weeks — the same length of time it generally takes skin to renew itself, she said.Beyond adding product and service offerings, The Ritualist is planning to add new cities early next year, according to Cros. Right now, the service is offered in New York and San Francisco, and next year should roll into Miami and Los Angeles, she said.

“I just wanted to create this fully rounded character, but I do think what excited me most was just the opportunity to give a group of people representation that I feel needs it. I like to do characters in projects that stand for something and Karolina definitely does, so that was really exciting to me,” @ginnygardner says of her new role in @hulu’s “The Runaways.” Gardner plays Karolina Dean, a queer superhero, which is a rarity for @marvel.

“Azzedine has been one of the biggest influences in my life. He has always been such a strong, loving, fatherly figure to me. I call him Papa. His designs are indescribably unique, they are pieces of art. He knew how to make the female form look its loveliest. I have so many memories of him; my favorite might be during my first show with him in Paris. He liked me and he wanted to help me get more work. He called all his friends at Kenzo and Comme des Garcons, and asked them to book me. They said, ‘But she can’t walk!’ And he said, ‘but she has such a great ass!' His friendship and support has been the great privilege of my career. I can't imagine life without him. Repose en paix mon Papa.” - @stephanieseymour tells @wwd. #wwdfashion (📷: @steveeichner) #alaia #azzedinealaia
Azzedine Alaïa, flanked by two of his closest friends, models Stephanie Seymour and Naomi Campbell.
He designed Seymour’s dress for her 1995 wedding to Peter Brant, and treated Campbell (who famously called him Papa), like a daughter. For more on the legendary designer, tap the link in bio. #wwdfashion #alaia #azzedinealaia
