It’s well within the realm of possibilities for a beauty range to presage a larger comeback. So it wouldn’t be out of this world to imagine Estee Lauder’s new cosmetics line with famed French designer André Courrèges — who made his name in the sixties with space-age mini-skirts, futuristic go-go boots, and the like — launching a full-scale revival of the brand.
The limited-edition collection consist of 13 pieces, ranging from lipsticks and lip glosses in Courrèges’ signature coral color to white eyeliner and false eyelashes, the kind synonymous with sixties’ mod. While Monsieur Courrèges and his wife Coqueline sold the house in 2011, they can still bear witness to the next generation of space chic.
In March 2015, available at Selfridges in London, Colette in Paris and 10 Corso Como in Milan
