Estee Lauder Companies’ 2010 Breast Cancer Awareness Campaign


This year’s BCA Campaign theme draws its inspiration from The Estée Lauder Companies’ heritage, which dates back to 1946 when Mrs. Estée Lauder’s “High-Touch” method of reaching consumers was “Telephone, Telegraph, Tell-A-Woman.” Evelyn Lauder’s approach to conquering breast cancer reinterprets this powerful messaging into a philanthropic mission for today’s modern and fast-paced culture. The campaign encourages women and men to Connect with everyone they know and Communicate the importance of breast health and early detection. Indeed, this is Mrs. Evelyn Lauder’s call-to-action to Conquer this disease once and for all.

From 1993 through October 2010, The BCA Campaign and its retail partners expect to have raised more than $45 million for The Breast Cancer Research Foundation® (BCRF), a not-for-profit organization dedicated to funding innovative, clinical and translational research and finding a cure in our lifetime.

Chanel SoHo Collection

Chanel SoHo Collection

To celebrate the reopening of the CHANEL Boutique in SoHo, CHANEL Global Creative Director of Makeup Peter Philips has created a limited edition collection that echoes the spirit of SoHo. “For me, SoHo is a place where Bohemian ideals meet the toughness of the city… I love the tension and energy this creates.” says Peter Philips.


The SOHO STORY Collection is a study in extreme contrasts, partnering feminine pinks and roses with strong, industrial metallics. From pretty cheekbones to anthracite nails, tender creams and flashes of metal simultaneously reflect and contradict each other. “I had a specific girl in mind who is both hard and soft. A girl who discovers a new city, a new life.” adds Peter Philips. “This is a very special kind of New York woman. She is innocent, but she has a steely determination that fuels the city.”

The collection’s SOHO DE CHANEL Exclusive Creation reflects a Pop Art influence. Stamped with the four letters of SoHo, this silky powder comes in a delicate palette of shades and, when dusted across the face, creates a subtle, natural glow.

Stupendous, Steel, Strong, Stunning, Stunt, Star: strong names that reflect the candance, the musical rhythm, the heartbeat of SoHo.


  • SoHo de Chanel ($65.00)
  • Stupendous Quadra Eye Shadow ($56.00)
  • Stunning Rouge Coco ($30.00)
  • Stunt Rouge Allure Laque ($32.00)
  • Star Glossimer ($27.00)
  • Steel and Strong Le Vernis ($23.00)

Availability: September 7th on, September 10th at the SoHo Boutique
