Frédéric Fekkai launches new beauty brand
The hairstylist and entrepreneur has taken on a new beauty venture, acquiring 26-year-old Aix-en-Provence-based company Cote Bastide, reports WWD. Focusing on local custom, the brand, which Fekkai will re-name simply Bastide, has plans to launch brick-and-mortar stores in Paris and New York. "The Millennial of today wants a different Provence than what other brands have offered. They want to know the quality, they want to know how it is made, what packaging we are using, where it comes from," Fekkai said in a WWD interview. {WWD}
