New Estée Lauder Collab Is Über Wunderbar-------
If an inspiring reserve of Gustav Klimts isn’t enough to get you uptown to Ronald S. Lauder’s Neue Galerie, how about this: In conjunction with the opening of March’s Otto Dix exhibit—the first-ever one-man show on American soil devoted to the revered German artist—Estée Lauder has created two new limited-edition products to be sold exclusively in the museum’s gift shop. Seeing as how some of Dix’s most famous works, including Portrait of the Dancer Anita Berber (1925) and Reclining Woman on Leopard Skin (1927), center around a female figure with bold red lips, said products are a crimson pigment in a gold bullet-shaped case dubbed Berlin Red and a Bauhaus-style mirror compact to go with it. We suggest adding the mansion-cum-museum to your next Upper East Side walking tour.
