NEW YORK — After LVMH Moët Hennessy Louis Vuitton sold two of the most talked-about upstart brands of the late Nineties — Hard Candy and Urban Decay — in December, Wende Zomnir was charged with a unusual opportunity: to redefine the images of both.
Under former corporate parent LVMH, the brands —?seemingly incompatible from the house’s other beauty brands, most of which have a luxury bent — had reportedly lost something of the edge that made them so appealing to celebrities and consumers in the late Nineties.
