The Estee Lauder Companies poised to secure Balmain beauty licence?

THE WHAT? The Estee Lauder Companies and Balmain are said to be negotiating terms of a potential deal that would see the US prestige beauty firm develop a cosmetics line for the French fashion brand, according to a report published by WWD.

THE DETAILS Both companies declined to comment when contacted by WWD about the rumors. Balmain’s offer currently includes a professional hair care line.

THE WHY? Balmain is presumably hoping to follow in the footsteps of the many fashion brands that have developed a successful beauty offer. Meanwhile, Lauder is presumably looking for the next ‘Tom Ford’ for its portfolio.
