Tom Ford hasn’t missed a beat since leaving his high-profile jobs designing womenswear for Gucci and Yves St. Laurent. He’s about to unveil his latest in a series of collaborations with beauty giant Estee Lauder.
Ford and Lauder will introduce another limited-edition makeup collection, Amber Nude, in September. It follows Ford’s updating last year of legendary Lauder perfume Youth Dew into a sexier version named Youth Dew Amber Nude.
Meanwhile, Ford’s latest limited-edition makeup collection with Lauder — azuree, named for the 1969 Lauder fragrance — will disappear from retail shelves at the end of August. The company reports strong sales, with a few of the 25 pieces still available locally at Macy’s and Saks and online at esteelauder.com. Some pieces that sold out early, such as a body oil spray and body tint, were available last week — you guessed it — on eBay.
