Industry News: Estée Lauder Launches Exclusive Derek Lam Minaudiere Collection

To celebrate the ten year collaboration between Tom Pecheux, Creative Makeup Director, and Derek Lam, Designer, Estée Lauder introduces an exclusive Estée Lauder Derek Lam Collection. Derek’s vision of "Luxury without Formality" meets Tom Pecheux’s makeup expertise in a glamorous designer clutch containing a five-piece limited edition makeup collection.

The chic navy satin hard-case clutch with Derek Lam’s signature clasp encases five perfectly packaged makeup essentials for the season. Striking a new balance of refinement and sensuality, the collection creates a look that is modern, fresh and straight from the runway. At New York Fashion Week, Tom Pecheux created a stunning makeup to debut the collection at Derek Lam’s Spring 2014 show.

"Estee Lauder and Tom Pecheux both understand the creative expression of a modern woman through beauty, which is the perfect complement to my designs." – Derek Lam

The Derek Lam Minaudiere collection combines the signature style of Derek Lam with the iconic navy blue of Estée Lauder.  "I designed the clutch to be a chic yet very adaptable accessory in a woman’s wardrobe" comments Derek Lam, "Every woman seeks that perfect small bag."  The interior of the clutch features the five products perfectly secured in a satin pocket, a credit card holder and space for a few additional evening essentials. The Derek Lam Minaudiere is a perfect way to finish an ensemble, whether paring it with a simple sweater and trouser for a dinner out, or with a fantastic dress for a special evening event.

The Estée Lauder Derek Lam Minaudiere Collection features five customised special edition pieces created by Tom Pecheux, inspired by the fabrics, textures and tones of Derek Lam’s Spring/Summer 2014 Collection. "The products are subtle and wearable yet can also be used to build a strong, sexy look" says Tom Pecheux. "It’s the perfect mix for creating a sophisticated day look that can be turned into a sensual evening look."  
The burnished gold creamy shade of The EyeShadow provides a modern gleam to eyes, while The Mascara features a new bold lifting formula for lashes that demand attention. The Kajal Crayon in a deep navy blue pumps up the drama with an intense, smudgy finish perfect for a night out. For the lips, the creamy, full coverage formula of The LipColor offers the perfect nude lip look, while The Gloss adds a touch of sheer rose gold shimmer to complete this runway look.

  • The Derek Lam Clutch
  • The Kajal Crayon in Near Night
  • The Mascara in Black Black
  • The EyeShadow in Smoked Gold
  • The LipColor in Smoked Blush
  • The Gloss in Barely Gold
