Jason Wu Lancôme Cosmetics To Launch Fashion Week

Jason Wu has joined forces with Lancôme to create an exclusive color cosmetics line. The cosmetics collection will be a Nordstrom exclusive — except in New York City, where it will be sold at Bergdorf Goodman. In total, the offering will be sold in about 120 of Lancôme’s 2,000 U.S. doors. Wu will also be doing a personal appearance at Nordstrom in Seattle after fashion week.

Wu’s cosmetics collection includes 15 stockkeeping units, including three eye-shadow palettes, dark navy mascara and multiple red lipsticks and nail polish, which range in price from $15 for nail polish to $49 for a five-pan eye-shadow palette.

Joyrich Launches Betty Boop Inspired Collection

Los Angeles-based streetwear specialist Joyrich and King Features Syndicate, owner and manager of the Betty Boop brand, have teamed on a 19-piece Betty Boop-inspired collection priced from $60 to $250 with T-shirts, hoodies, jackets, dresses, bags, hats and more.

Joyrich creative director David Melgar wanted to incorporate the classic cartoon character into new streetwear styles to create a blend of classic iconography with a modern fit. The collection will launch today in seven brick-and-mortar stores, including Patricia Field in New York and Wish in Atlanta, and two online retailers, Nasty Gal and Dolls Kill.

BFC Enlists Nicholas Kirkwood To Design Branding Visual For LFW

This will be the third season that the BFC has teamed up with a designer on a branding visual. Kirkwood‘s chevron and graphic print concept will be implemented in the branding for London Fashion Week in September.

Kirkwood joins Jonathan Saunders and fellow shoe designer Manolo Blahnik, who have created bespoke artwork for the organization in the past. This time around, the design will also be presented as a mirrored display, an interactive and reflective element incorporated in the central courtyard at Somerset House.
