The Peninsula Hotels partners with Oscar de la Renta on exclusive new amenity collection

This autumn sees the introduction of a collection of brand new bathroom amenities conceived by renowned international fashion designer Oscar de la Renta for The Peninsula Hotels around the world, featuring a bespoke fragrance created by Mr de la Renta. The collaboration with The Peninsula is the first time Mr de la Renta has entered into an olfactory partnership with another brand.

Mr de la Renta established his fashion house in 1965 and thanks to the combination of his passion for vibrant colour, his European-trained eye for luxurious fabrics and embellishments and his unique understanding of all things feminine, his namesake label became an instant success, with retailers and the global media. Today the New York-based company produces a full line of women’s accessories, bridal, childrenswear, fragrance, beauty and home décor in addition to its signature women’s ready-to-wear collection.

In 1977, his first fragrance ‘Oscar’ was released to critical acclaim, and today Oscar de la Renta offers a complete collection of fragrances for both women and men, always using the finest ingredients.

“Elegance is a way of life,” Mr de la Renta has said, and from 30 September 2013, guests of The Peninsula Hotels worldwide will experience the elegant and aromatic world of the esteemed designer through his exclusive range of bathroom amenities created especially for The Peninsula.

The unisex fragrance, developed in partnership with Firmenich, is described as a “citrus aromatic floral musk” - top notes of mandarin and bergamot mingle with cardamom and freesia to create an initial sparkling impression, while jasmine and violet, white and green tea create a balanced bouquet of purity. The scent transitions into warmth and softness as musks and cedar combine with blonde woods and tonka for sensual pure luxury.

The amenity collection includes shampoo, conditioner, shower gel and body lotion, all presented in clear 50ml recyclable bottles with dark blue caps in a custom-designed rose shape, together with elegantly packaged soap in two sizes.

“We are delighted to enter into this partnership with Oscar de la Renta,” says Peter Borer, Chief Operating Officer of The Hongkong and Shanghai Hotels, Limited, the parent company of The Peninsula Hotels. “Mr de la Renta’s designs are some of the most distinctive in the world, exuding timeless elegance and refined appeal, and thus perfectly complement the very ethos of The Peninsula Hotels.”

“I am very happy to be able to bring some of my products to The Peninsula Hotels. The Peninsula represents a sense of excitement, beauty and magic like no one else in the world.” says Oscar de la Renta.

The Peninsula Hotels’ amenity line was produced for Oscar de la Renta by Gilchrist & Soames, one of the most renowned and respected spa, bath and body brands in the world. Gilchrist & Soames’ products are found in the most prestigious hotels, spas, and resorts throughout the world.  The company has been a partner of The Peninsula Hotels for over five years, and continues this relationship with the introduction of the exclusive Oscar de la Renta Peninsula Hotels amenity collection.
