Avril Lavigne’s New Deal with Sally Hansen
Avril Lavigne has just signed a deal with Coty division Sally Hansen which the singer will create a nail collection for its Salon Effects brand. The limited edition collection includes 12 designs of nail polish strips — including tiny skulls and leopard prints, Lavigne’s favorites — which are inspired by Lavigne’s style and music. Each $9.99 kit includes 16 nail-polish strips, a cuticle stick, a mini-file and buffer and instructions for at-home application.
“Avril is a pop music icon, but she has also become a fashion inspiration, known worldwide for her edgy, yet feminine style,” said Steve Mormoris, senior vice president of global marketing for Coty Beauty. “We believe this new collection will appeal to Avril fans and trendsetters alike.” Added Annette Devita, vice president of marketing for Sally Hansen: “She appeals to a younger generation of girls, which makes her a perfect fit for Salon Effects.” The line will launch globally in April.
Terry Richardson Shoots Jimmy Choo
Jimmy Choo took its collection south — metaphorically speaking — for its campaign inspired by the sensual Mediterranean glamour of Anouk Aimée in the 1969 film “Justine.” Shot by Terry Richardson on the grounds of a neoclassical estate outside New York City, the campaign features Magdalena Frackowiak and Jamie Bochert as rivals, swanning past white columns and crumbling statues — and fighting over a handbag. The campaign broke in the February issues of titles such as American Vogue, Harper’s Bazaar and Elle.
Tom Wyatt Leaves Gap Inc.
Old Navy president Tom Wyatt has resigned to enter the education field, Gap Inc. said Thursday. Wyatt will become chief executive officer of Knowledge Universe in Portland, Ore., the parent company of the KinderCare, Champions, Knowledge Beginnings and Cambridge schools and The Grove School, which provide early learning and school-age programs around the country.
His departure means Gap has another big spot to fill. The retailer is seeking a new head of Gap Adult design, which was previously held by designer Patrick Robinson, who was involved in a broad spectrum of categories until being ousted last year.
