Before heading over for another full day in the tents, yesterday morning we stopped in at Robert Verdi's loft (of all places) for Kiehl's launch of the Derek Lam kit.
Treating beauty bloggers to mimosas and views of Penn Station from Verdi's loft, Kiehl's showed off the $225 kit which comes in with a dustbag and showy box of its own, like a perfect little luxe gift. The travel-size items included in the Derek Lam case are the designer's picks of the Kiehl's stock: Lip Balm #1 (with its own pocket), Crème de Corps, Amino Acid Shampoo, Nurturing Body Washing Cream, and the Conditioner & Grooming Aid.
It was hard for us to focus on anything but Verdi's stunning space, filled with an eclectic assortment of furniture in bold prints (Mizrahi's faux bois!) and sponsor brands like Rock & Republic and Sperry Topsiders. Even Verdi (of She's Got the Look fame and more) was up and milling about, already sporting a McQueen scarf at 9am. Check out the pictures for a closer look at the goodies inside the space.
