Bermuda praised by fashion leader Lauder
Beauty and fashion entrepreneur Aerin Lauder, a granddaughter of Estée Lauder, has been singing the praises of Bermuda.
She has joined Rosewood Curators programme, on behalf of Rosewood Bermuda, to share travel tips and insights about the island for Rosewood destinations around the world.
In addition, she has partnered with Rosewood Bermuda to bring to the hotel an amenity line, which features six coral palm-scented bath and body products and a fragrance bar. The AERIN hotel amenity line was launched when the luxury hotel reopened after undergoing $25 million of renovations last year
Ms Lauder is the founder of AERIN, a luxury lifestyle brand that offers curated collections of beauty, fashion and home decor products.
She honeymooned in Bermuda in 1996 at the urging for her grandmother, who cofounded cosmetics company Estée Lauder.
Ms Lauder has made return visits to the island and has shared some of her insights in an interview that features as part of the online Rosewood Conversations website. She gives travel packing tips and recommendations for what to do when you arrive at your destination.
In a question and answer interview, she said one of her favourite memories of Bermuda was on her last trip.
“I spent a perfect day on the beach with my girlfriends at Rosewood Bermuda’s Beach Club. They have one of the most beautiful private beaches in Bermuda. We drank rosé, ate fish tacos and French fries, and just relaxed,” she said.
While in Bermuda her favourite flowers are Bermudian freesia and oleanders, and she said the traditions, scents and colours of the island inspire her work.
“I particularly love the bright colours of the island — from the pink sand beaches, to the blue water and candy-coloured homes. Everything is just so vibrant and beautiful.
“What’s more, it feels like you’re a million miles away, but it is so easy to get to. If you’re located on the east coast, you can easily go for the weekend and have two full days at the beach.”
As well as her own AERIN line of perfume, cosmetics, fashion and furniture, Ms Lauder is the style and image director for Estée Lauder Corporation.
Her complete curator interview, including destination and travel trips, can be found on Rosewood Conversations, the brand’s online travel digital platform.
The Rosewood Curator programme was launched in 2013 and includes fashion icons Anna Dello Russo and Iris Apfel, prima ballerina Tan Yuan Yuan, designer Zac Posen, Academy award-winning actress Allison Janney, and art expert Emmanuel Perrotin.
