The Bay and Lesley Hampton Countdown to the Holidays With Luxury Beauty Calendar
10% of net proceeds go to Hudson’s Bay Foundation in support of Indspire
(TORONTO, ON) — The Bay is delighted to announce the launch of its inaugural Holiday Beauty Calendar, a luxurious 25-day unisex open and reveal experience for beauty lovers. Designed in collaboration with fashion designer Lesley Hampton the calendar is threaded with design details from her eponymous label and her Indigenous heritage. Kicking off the festive season, this premium beauty calendar is a first of its kind for The Bay with pull-out drawers filled with more than 30 full and travel-sized luxury beauty products spanning makeup, skincare, fragrance and more. The exclusive Holiday Beauty Calendar also contains a $20 gift card to The Bay and will be available for purchase on thebay.com and at Hudson’s Bay stores beginning today through the holiday season, while supplies last.
“We are incredibly proud to collaborate with Lesley Hampton, one of Canada’s rising fashion stars, on this extra special and collector-worthy holiday beauty calendar,” says Christine Kelly, VP Beauty at The Bay.
“Lesley’s keen design eye paired with an unrivalled array of premium brands make this marquee calendar the perfect addition to The Bay’s robust gift assortment–one of the country’s best— and it will surprise and delight every day leading up to the holidays.”
“It was a great first step towards inclusion to have my artwork be a part of this collaboration,” says Lesley Hampton. “As an Indspire Award recipient, it is exciting for me to be able to give back to my community with proceeds from this Beauty Calendar being in support of Indspire.”
Designed in Lesley Hampton’s staple colour palette of mauve, cream, gold and a soft taupe, the stunning calendar gives subtle nods to her First Nations heritage, including foil engraved Niizhtana Shi Naanan (twenty-five in English) across the interior of the calendar and the greeting Mino Bimaadiziwin on the right door panel, an Ojibway philosophy for living in balance translating to English as ‘the good life.’
Each day, the reusable calendar drawers will reveal a premium beauty product from a globally-renowned brand such as Yves Saint Laurent, M•A•C, Rodial, Giorgio Armani, and more. Each product is packaged separately so that with every reveal, beauty lovers will delight in a new gift for themselves, or a gift they know friends or family will love.
The Holiday Beauty Calendar is valued at more than $1,300 CAD and retails for $225 CAD. With the sale of each beauty calendar, 10% of net proceeds will go to Hudson’s Bay Foundation’s charitable partner Indspire, an Indigenous organization with programs that support First Nations, Inuit and Métis students and educators across Canada through financial support for post-secondary education, mentorship and professional development.
