Kiehl's and Derek Lam and Kiehl's and Brad Pitt

Just when we thought we couldn't love Kiehl's anymore, out comes news of not one, but two partnerships we totally support.

kiehl's derek lam First up: Designer Derek Lam designed the above limited edition Travel Kit. "I was thrilled to collaborate with Kiehl's - I've been a fan since I first moved to New York City," says Derek on the Kiehl's website. "Their products blend the traditional and the innovative, and embrace luxury and functionality. When designing the travel kit, I was inspired by Kiehl's elegant simplicity and created something to help make traveling as effortless as possible.”

The kit contains Derek Lam’s favorite travel size products, including Creme de Corps, Creme de Corps Nurturing Body Washing Cream, Amino Acid Shampoo, Formula 133 and Lip Balm #1. The bag has a special pocket for the lip balm. Genius! No more searching at the bottom of the bag for this tiny must have.

The kit costs $225 and is available online and at select NYC, LA and San Francisco stores.

Brad Pitt and Kiehl's

In case the Derek Lam collaboration isn't enough for you, WWD reports today that Brad Pitt has hooked up with Kiehl's to make the new Aloe Vera Biodegradable Liquid Body Cleanser. The body wash, due out in October, is paraben, sulfate and dye free and the bottle is readily recyclable plastic. According to WWD, "100 percent of the net profits from sales of Kiehl’s will benefit JPF Eco Systems, a charitable foundation created by Kiehl’s and Pitt to support global environmental initiatives that 'minimize impact on the environment through thoughtful design.'”

Brad will not appear in any advertising nor is he getting paid. He did contribute his handwriting to the bottle (above). We'll be first in line in October to buy this wash!
