Beauty.com and Marchesa Announce Encore Beauty Bag Collaboration 1/11

Beauty.com, Inc., a wholly-owned subsidiary of drugstore.com, inc. (Nasdaq: DSCM) invites the award-winning designers behind Marchesa back to create a unique gift with purchase. Starting Tuesday, January 11th, shoppers who visit www.beauty.com/marchesa will receive the designer bag with any $150 Beauty.com purchase. For this exclusive partnership, Georgina Chapman and Keren Craig re-imagined the evening clutch as a glamorous, beauty-savvy accessory. The lustrous black fabric exterior boasts tiers of ruffles and a dramatic bow, while a top-zip reveals a silky ballet-pink interior. The limited edition gift arrives stocked with 17 beauty samples, including a shopping card for $10 off future Beauty.com purchases.

"This season we wanted to create a beauty bag that could double as a chic day or night clutch. The draped bow detail and ruffles are Marchesa signatures and the classic noir finish will go with any outfit. We also made it roomy enough for even the most extensive beauty collection, so you can carry everything or nothing at all and still look chic regardless of where you go."
-Marchesa co-founders Georgina Chapman and Keren Craig.

About Marchesa
British born Georgina and Keren met at Chelsea College of Art and Design in London. Georgina, a 2001 graduate of the Wimbledon School of Art, began her career as a costume designer. Keren graduated from Brighton Art College in 2000 and subsequently focused on print and embroidery design. Georgina's draping and design expertise paired with Keren's textile creations resulted in a business partnership and the establishment of Marchesa in 2004.
Elegant eveningwear, inspired by vintage and Asian influences, defines the Marchesa Collection. The beautifully crafted designs fuse high fashion with an eclectic aesthetic. Co-founded by Georgina Chapman and Keren Craig, the company's namesake and muse, Marchesa Luisa Casati, is the noted eccentric European style icon.
Based in New York, the Marchesa collection is presently available in Neiman Marcus and Bergdorf Goodman in the United States, Harrods in London, and specialty boutiques such as Holt Renfrew in Canada, Podium in Russia, Alothman in Kuwait, Boutique1 in Dubai, and Joyce and Lane Crawford in Hong Kong.
