Following the success of previous worldwide holiday partnerships with celebrated artists such as Kaws, Jeff Koons and Kenny Scharf, Kiehl’s proudly announces its fifth annual limited-edition holiday collection in collaboration with NYC-based artist Eric Haze.
Haze has been creating artistic imagery on a variety of mediums for over 30 years and is best known for designs that span the art, graphic design and fashion arenas.
First recognized for his contributions to the early 1980s NYC graffiti art scene, Haze’s work is iconic, including custom album artwork and logos for The Beastie Boys, L.L. Cool J and MTV.
He has created limited-edition sneakers for Nike and New Balance and has an established clothing line of street wear, with a flagship store in Tokyo, Japan. The Kiehl’s x Haze partnership is the designer’s first time working on skincare packaging.
The Kiehl’s x Haze limited-edition collection includes the Ultra Facial Cream and Calendula Toner. Customers can also customize gift sets using Kiehl’s x Haze gift set boxes and paper bags.
In the Philippines, 100 percent of the proceeds from the sale of this limited-edition collection will benefit Cottolengo Filipino charity, a religious NGO accredited by the Department of Social Welfare and Development, whose aim is to serve the most poor, abandoned, neglected, surrendered persons with disabilities.
