Not all collaborations are equal, however the Estée Lauder x Duro Olowu Collection is nothing short of superlative. The August 2019 issue of British Vogue fêtes this collaboration in the best possible way by calling on Estée Model Anok Yai. Launched at the beginning of the month, the timing of this collection could not be better as summer temperatures rise. The collection was curated in partnership with the Nigerian-born, London-based designer, and draws obvious inspiration from his own collections and the strong, elegant women who wear them. “Whether you’re going out in a full makeup look or just a sweep of blush, my hope is that women will feel confident however they decide to wear these products,” says Olowu speaking with British Vogue Beauty Editor Jessica Diner. Photographed by Richard Burbridge with makeup by Kabuki, this beauty feature very much delivers on the promise of its title, “In Good Company.”
