We all love a designer bag and doubly so when it’s a gift, so how about a bonus statement clutch from leading SA designer Gavin Rajah? The offer (while stocks last, which is why we’re letting you know about it now) is that the bag is free when you buy R900 or more of Clinique treatment products. And that’s not all! Buy two or more treatment products from Clinique and you’ll also get a free eight-piece Clinique gift set, including mascara, lipstick, creams and blush (also while stocks last). Find yours at Clinique makeup counters at Edgars and Red Square stores.
And to celebrate this hot fashion and beauty collaboration, we caught up with Clinique’s communication and PR manager, Natasha Bennett, to find out more:
GLAMOUR: Bringing Gavin’s designer touch to your international brand brings fashion and beauty together. Why is this so important to Clinique?
NATASHA: Fashion and beauty are very closely linked – the one is incomplete without the other. For a finished look, it’s important that your beauty and fashion are complementary, and that’s exactly what we’ve done here with this collaboration. The Gavin Rajah clutch bag works with the Clinique treatment products for an experience that is both stylish and pretty.
GLAMOUR: What inspired Clinique to collaborate with Gavin Rajah?
NATASHA: Both brands have a similar ethos and brand synergy: Clinique and Gavin Rajah both embody a clean aesthetic, elegance and femininity.
GLAMOUR: How are Clinique translating catwalk beauty trends with their products?
NATASHA: Clinique’s Global Colour Artist, Jenna Menard, has found an amazing translation with various designers in New York that were showcased at New York Fashion Week. In particular, the colours you find in Clinique products are directly influenced by what’s showing on catwalks.
GLAMOUR: What are your Clinique must-haves to look beautiful through winter?
NATASHA: The Clinique 3-Step Skincare System (R525) is formulated to help you clean, purify and glow and is a must-have for your daily skincare routine. Clinique also offers custom-fit moisturisers to suit every skin type. To find out what yours is, go to your nearest Clinique counter to get your for your free consultation. And for a pop of colour (so hot right now!), don’t forget Clinique’s Chubby Stick Moisturising Balm Lip Colour (R205), to keep your lips plump and moisturised, with a burst of bright colour.
