Lab Series Rebrands

Lab Series, a pioneer in men’s skincare, has had a '360 degree upgrade'. All the brand's packaging has been redesigned with the consumer in mind to be functional, modern, and easy to navigate with clear product benefits and ingredients callouts on pack. Six new product series targeted to the most common male skincare concerns are colour coded based on the benefits of the products for instant recognition: Daily Rescue, All-in-One, Oil Control, Anti-aging MAX LS, Grooming, and Instant Fix. A new, sleeker logo ties it all together.

New sustainability measures include: more than half of packaging by weight will be recyclable, refillable, reusable, recycled or recoverable with the goal to reach 75% by 2025. More than half of the new packaging contains a minimum of 20% recycled content. 100% of cartons will be recyclable and are made using FSC-certified paperboard.

The Max LS Weightless Anti-Aging Water Lotion has been reformulated with Youth Renewing technology and powerful ferments to condition and recharge skin after cleansing, leaving it smoother and younger-looking.

Lab Series has also launched a new e-commerce experience featuring the exclusive 'Lab Series Skin Diagnostic'—a personalised online skin analysing tool that provides consumers with private, customised advice at their fingertips. Activated using a smartphone with an uploaded selfie, the skin diagnostic uses Artificial Intelligence (AI) to provide a personalised skin report mapping six main skin concerns and providing customised product recommendations.

The new Lab Series digital experience is available now, followed by the Skin Diagnostic in early 2022.

TheChicGeek says, "Lab Series was one of the first premium men's grooming brands, started in 1987 by Estée Lauder Companies Inc. This new rebrand feels contemporary and fresh, while still recognisably Lab Series. The range is extensive - maybe still a little too large? (Below) - but they'll be something here for everybody.

The new imagery is less chiselled and more inclusive. Men's grooming brands can be softer today and less stamping of masculinity. This new look feels modern and while retaining the science we've come to expect from Lab Series. The personalised Skin Diagnostic tool sounds like it has potential and will help to navigate the products. I will be testing the reformulated Max LS Weightless Anti-Aging Water Lotion."

Ettinger leather goods ecru capra collectionLuxury accessory brand, Ettinger, has launched a contrasting, two-tone collection called Capra Ecru. The new collection combines elegant goat leather on the outside but with a luxuriously soft and contrasting suede on the inside. The Capra Ecru Collection includes a variety of accessories for both home and away.

Inspired by the 1930s, when Ettinger crafted many home and travel accessories from this elegant and durable goat leather, hugely popular at the time, Capra Ecru offers the range in a choice of sophisticated colours of Black, Forest Green and Marine Blue on the outside. Inside you will find the luxuriously soft suede in contrasting Ecru. 

The collection offers customers a selection of rolls, boxes, and trays, all designed to keep jewellery, coins, keys, trinkets, pens, glasses, watches and more safely in place at home or when away travelling or on holiday.

Both jewellery rolls and valet trays can be personalised with up to 5 initials in gold, silver or blind embossing.

Robert Ettinger, says "We are always excited when launching new products, collections and colours but this new Capra Ecru really is a lovely combination of colours and materials. It is also the only collection where we have a contrasting leather and suede combination as usually, we complement the two.".

TheChicGeek says, "Ettinger still upholds handmade quality at its factory in Walsall. In contrast to many 'luxury' brands at the moment, Ettinger still offers exceptional quality while not charging over the odds for it. Quality speaks volumes."

Mulberry bag 50th anniversary Nicolas Daley

Mulberry is continuing its 50th anniversary celebrations through a series of joyful collaborations with three of the most visionary designers of their generation ­– Priya Ahluwalia , Richard Malone and Nicholas Daley. Each designer will create a capsule collection as part of Mulberry Editions, a new offering of limited-edition accessories that will drop throughout 2021. 

Ahluwalia, Malone and Daley have each re-imagined an existing Mulberry silhouette, bringing their unique design ethos with the values Mulberry has always cherished ­– progressive British craftsmanship, made-to-last design, responsible innovation and community spirit. Their collections showcase the inspirational design that springs from a meeting of creativity and craft expertise. 

“I’m delighted that Mulberry is collaborating with three such talented designers, each with their own innovative design ethos and unique creative voice. It has been a pleasure to work with each of them, and to share Mulberry’s passion for innovation, craft and sustainability”. - Thierry Andretta, CEO, Mulberry.

Ahluwalia (collaboration launching June 2021)

Priya Ahluwalia launched her eponymous multi award winning label in 2018, after graduating from the MA Menswear course at The University of Westminster. The label combines elements from the designer’s dual Indian-Nigerian heritage and London roots, and explores the potential of vintage and surplus clothing by giving existing materials new life through textile techniques. Ahluwalia is informed by art, music, literature, and culture across the African and Asian diasporas to create an intersection between near and far, and past and present, making Ahluwalia both nostalgic and futuristic at the same time.

Richard Malone (collaboration launching September 2021)

London-based, Irish-born designer and multi-disciplinary artist Richard Malone, has become the fashion industry go-to for authenticity, resourcefulness and experimentation. Malone is stringently committed to sustainability, community, local production and the development of a less harmful fashion business model, releasing his collections in limited numbers.

Nicholas Daley (collaboration launching November 2021)
Nicholas Daley graduated from Central Saint Martins in 2013 and launched his eponymous label in 2015. Since the brand’s genesis, Daley has continually explored his dual-ethnic heritage, being of Jamaican and Scottish descent: he widely questions and reflects the notion of multiculturalism within the British identity. Placing great significance on craftsmanship with his production within the UK and Japan, Daley works with recognised artisans creating bespoke textiles and fabric finishes for every collection.

#MulberryxAhluwalia, #MulberryxRichardMalone, #MulberryxNicholasDaley

TheChicGeek says, "Mulberry has picked three of the best young British designers to team up with and it will be exciting to see the spins they put on the classic Mulberry silhouettes dropping throughout the year."
