Kate Somerville is adding to her skin care lineup with two new facial skin care and one body care product.
The first, CytoCell P299, Oil Free Anti-Wrinkle Serum, hits counters next week.
The key ingredient is P299, a proprietary stem-cell polypeptide intended to diminish the look of fine lines and wrinkles. Also included are marine algae and hyaluronic acid complexes, designed to moisturize the skin and restore skin’s capacity to retain moisture. It will retail for $95 for 1 oz.
Somerville will follow it up in August with Kateceuticals Restor8 Replenishing Serum. Billed as an antiaging powerhouse, its ingredients include a proprietary tripeptide blend said to diminish the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles; hyaluronic acid to reduce the visible depth and volume of wrinkles; ceramines for deep hydration and blackberry leaf extract for its antioxidants and polyphenols. The serum will retail for $165 for 1 oz.
Body Rescue Cream is intended to combat signs of aging on the body. Its key ingredient is Advanced Matrixyl 3000, said to firm sagging skin and refine texture. As well, it contains shea butter and cupuaçu fruit for their deep moisturizing properties and botanical tea and ginger extracts for their calming and smoothing properties. It will retail for $45 for 5 oz.
The products will be carried in about 461 doors globally: 393 specialty store doors in the U.S., including Neiman Marcus, Nordstrom, Bergdorf Goodman and Sephora, and 68 internationally, including outlets in Canada, Australia, New Zealand, Singapore and Malaysia. While executives declined comment on projected sales, industry sources estimated that the products would do about $5 million at retail in their first year on counter.
“The Kate Somerville consumer knows our products deliver results and our product sales reflect that,” said Michelle Taylor, chief executive officer of Kate Somerville. “All of our products utilize Smart Balance Technology, which combines the optimal level of active ingredients with soothing botanicals. This smart technology delivers the best results without any irritation.”
@chanel and @pharrell dropped what’s being dubbed as the world’s most exclusive sneakers yesterday.

The singer predicted the resale value of the shoes could reach $40K. Read the full interview on WWD.com. Link in bio. #wwdfashion
@imanshumpert is diving deeper into his creative endeavors and relaunching his clothing line, Post 90s, and is helping to raise money for the hurricane victims in St. Maarten with a jersey he’s designed with his brother.

Not only does #TheProfit return to CNBC tonight, but @marcuslemonis has launched @shopmarcus, a new shopping and lifestyle retail experience in Aspen and Chicago, with more locations to come. The retail stores offer in-store stylists and a variety of contemporary womenswear selections.
“It’s life, I’m going to face it,” @mingxi11 sighed. “I fell, but you know, I think the most important thing is that I get back up. I had the love, the help from my sister — the girl next to me Gizele [Oliveira] — she’s so nice. When I went backstage everybody was trying to comfort me like ‘Oh Ming, it’s OK.’ I’m really, really touched. I think it’s them who gave me the courage to go back on stage for the finale,” Xi told WWD of her fall at the @victoriassecret fashion show.

@louisvuitton tapped @therealpeterlindbergh for its latest city-centric photo book, which is part of a series called Fashion Eye. The primarily black and white book captures the spirit of Berlin in 57 images shot between 1989 and 2019. “Berlin is an inspiration for me, more than a city. I mean @millajovovich is simply Berlin!” said Lindbergh. #wwdfashion
“You know, I think audiences expect a certain performance so I have to deliver to them what they’re expecting to a certain degree. But I’m also a different actor and a different person, I have my own spin on the character,” says @noahegalvin of his takeover of the leading role in “Dear Evan Hansen” following the departure of @bensplatt, who originated the role.

@kith is moving into children’s. The men’s and women’s streetwear brand has launched Kidset, a Kith kids line located in New York at 64 Bleecker Street. The line includes mini versions of staple Kith pieces like the Astor bomber jacket and the Kith box logo sweatshirts, along with a wall that can display up to 120 pairs of shoes from @adidas, @newbalance, @timberland and more. #wwdfashion
“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.
