In the weeks ahead, Shiseido Co. Ltd.’s namesake brand will roll out new makeup products and reenter Sephora stores for the first time since 2009. The relaunch, which comes as J-Beauty gains popularity in the U.S., draws from Shiseido’s Japanese roots and is in line with Shiseido president and chief executive officer Masahiko Uotani’s vision to expand the global presence of the prestige brands over the next three years. It’s also a strategic play at boosting Shiseido’s stake in the global color market and, according to industry sources, is expected to pull in as much as $500 million in retail sales for the brand over the next three years.
The first retrospective of Dior in the U.S. has landed at the Denver Art Museum — and though the exhibition is a continuation of the 70th-anniversary display that bowed in Paris in 2017, “Christian Dior, Couturier du Rêve,” the DAM show offers an entirely new look at the legacy of the house, and its relationship to the world, writes @leighen .

Norwegian musician Anna of the North (a.k.a. Anna Lotterud ) has had a rapid rise in the U.S., thanks to her song “Lovers” which was included in this summer’s Netflix hit “To All The Boys I’ve Loved Before.” Next up, a show at Terminal 5. “I’ve never actually done promo or anything in the U.S. before so it’ll be interesting to see,” she tells @leighen . “Because of the Internet I’ve always had American listeners but never been here [playing music].” 📸: @jilliansollazzo #wwdeye
