Cosmetics giant Estee Lauder reached out to Opening Ceremony and Kenzo designers Carol Lim and Humberto Leon to design new outfits for its 15,000 beauty advisors around the world.

The men’s and women’s designs will debut on shop floors from this Saturday at the Estée Lauder flagship coutner at Macy’s Herald Square in New York City. The 14-piece wardrobe has been designed in classic navy blue, off-white and jacquard fabrics.

“We really wanted to communicate the quality, the prestige and everything that you associate with the brand,” Lim told WWD, promising “something classic, timeless, really fresh and modern.”

“Everybody deserves to wear something pretty spectacular and now they will be,” added Richard Ferretti, senior vice president and global creative director at Estée Lauder.

The two brands will be teaming up again on September 8, when the beauty company is set to create the make-up looks at the Opening Ceremony fashion show held as part of New York Fashion Week.

Earlier this year Vivienne Westwood signed up to create sustainable outfits for employees of Richard Branson’s Virgin Atlantic airline.
