As Clinique enters its fifth decade, the evening’s honoree Jane Lauder, global brand president, Clinique, emphasized the importance of packaging for the brand. “Packaging for Clinique is critical. It could not look too clinical,” said Lauder, recalling how Carol Phillips, the founder of Clinique, would assess each piece and its packaging, looking at the colors and design of each. Clearly placing the same emphasis on packaging details, Jane Lauder continues to determine that each package is unique. She said she is currently focused on sustainability in packaging, and cited the packaging of Clinique’s most recent launch, Clinique ID, in its detail. Lauder reflected on innovation in the future, concluding, “True innovation can only succeed in a workplace that embraces diversity and nurtures the future leaders.”
