LA designer Trina Turk has started a list of collabs of late with the news of her designer spell for Hue legwear, which will walk the runway of Turk's shows next month, and now word that Turk will be creating makeup bags to go with Clinique gift-with-purchases (gwp) at Nordstrom, rolling out November 5-18 and lasting for three seasons.
WWD reports: "The first fruit of the relationship will be a bag in a silver and white Tigress print, with a bright yellow lining...According to Turk, the spring 2009 bag will be a multicolor floral." As for what's in the bag: "The gwp, available with purchases of $25 and up, includes...Zero Gravity Repairwear Lift, Rinse-Off Foaming Cleanser, a color compact with Colour Surge Eye Shadow duo in Beach Plum and Soft-Pressed Powder Blusher in New Clover, Long Last Glosswear in Bamboo Pink, Lash Doubling Mascara in Black, Long Last Lipstick in Twilight Nude and a lipstick case with mirror."
This is an effort to amp up gwp sales, according to the trade: "Gwp promotions can generate as much as 65 percent of some brands’ annual volume, but sales have been lackluster for the better part of a decade." The gwp bag and products will be avail in-store and at nordstrom.com while supplies last.
