Oscar de la Renta to Launch Extraordinary Fragrance

Oscar de la renta -extraordinary-perfume


After a year-old licensing deal with Inter Parfums, Inc., Oscar de la Renta is set to launch a women’s fragrance named after the late designer’s favorite way of paying a compliment. He was heavily involved in the creation of Extraordinary, including the bottle’s design. 

The fragrance was created in hopes of luring in a younger customer, in the 25 to 35 age range, in order to broaden the Oscar de la Renta customer base. In a statement to WWD, Michele de Bourbon, senior vice president of fragrance, said, “This had to be something sparkling, elegant but still have that flirtatious fruitiness and warmth that we know the customer loves to feel. We needed to have our own signature, something with beautiful, plush peonies and very qualitative neroli oil, a sparkle of citrus on top and a very warm woody character on the bottom.”

Extraordinary will be available in American department stores Macy’s, Dillard’s, Lord & Taylor and Belk in April. The eau de parfum will retail for $92 (90-ml) and $58 (40-ml), and will feature a rollerball and lip balm duo priced at $22.

Topshop Clears up Kendall/Kylie Collaboration Rumors

It seems as if every day the world gets some new morsel of Kardashian-Jenner news. Yesterday, rumors hit the web that the youngest of the reality TV brood, Kendall and Kylie, were in talks with Topshop on a capsule collection. Today, Topshop has a full explanation for the story.

Turns out, Kendall and Kylie won’t be designing anything exclusively for Topshop. But that doesn’t mean the sisters won’t have a presence in store. A rep for the retailer told Vogue UK that it is trying to strike up a deal with the Jenner girls to exclusively sell their Kendall & Kylie collection at Topshop.

So, no, the Jenners aren’t putting out a Kate Moss or Beyoncé-style collaboration with the retailer, but the peasant blouses and skater dresses they peddle through their namesake collection (now available at PacSun) will probably be coming to a Topshop near you this summer.

Designers are putting their own spin on the T-shirt for U.K.’s Red Nose Day. Happening on March 13, Red Nose Day comes around every two years and citizens are encouraged to do something silly (like wear a red nose) to help raise funds for various causes around the world. 

Diane von Furstenberg, Henry Holland, Anya Hindmarch, Karl Lagerfeld and Matthew Williamson have all designed T-shirts for the big day. Each boasts a cute slogan (“I think I may be the voice of my generation,” Henry Holland; “Do my feathers look big in this?” Matthew Williamson) and of course, a red nose. Diane von Furstenberg opted for a throwback picture of herself on her shirt, serving a 60s vixen mood with the tagline, “Don’t be a bore!” 

You can pick up the T-shirts at TK Maxx with prices ranging from £5.99 to £14.99. Proceeds will benefit Comic Relief. See some of the shirts in the gallery below.  (more…)
