Surprises are the best part of the holidays. You never know what will be under the tree, who will meet you under the mistletoe or what kind of amazing retail collaborations will come about. This year is no exception. Cool girl handbag designer Rebecca Minkoff has created a beauty bag exclusively for Holt Renfrew. Packed full of her own favourite beauty picks — think Clinique Chubby Stick, ReVive Glycolic Renewal Peel, Laura Mercier Longwear Crème Eye Pencil, Estée Lauder Advanced Night Repair Eye Serum, Sisley Supremÿa Yeux la Nuit Anti-Aging Eye Serum — it’s the kind of gift that keeps on giving.
The bag is Holt Renfrew’s first holiday beauty collaboration and brings a touch of New York to Canada. In an interview with the luxury retailer’s online publication, Holts Muse, the designer disclosed her inspiration behind the collaboration. “For this cosmetic bag I was particularly inspired by the holidays in New York City,” she says. “There’s such an excitement in the air during this time, I wanted to design something festive that any Rebecca Minkoff girl can enjoy!”
The Rebecca Minkoff x Holt Renfrew holiday beauty bag is available in quilted gold lamé or gunmetal, and includes a long, narrow interior pouch that’s perfect for storing makeup brushes or any delicate items. Available exclusively at Holt Renfrew stores across Canada, the bag retails for $50 and includes a $25 voucher that can be put toward any future beauty purchase.
