When Hunting Season’s Danielle Corona approached Rosie Huntington-Whiteley about a potential collaboration, the supermodel and founder of the beauty website Rose Inc. leapt at the chance. “As someone in need of a new makeup bag, I thought, ‘Well, this is the perfect opportunity to design my dream cosmetic case,’” Huntington-Whiteley—who was first introduced to the Colombian line’s minimalist heirlooms by her stylist, Emma Jade Morrison—says over the phone from her home in London. “It was really a no-brainer.”
The resulting collection, which launches online today and came together seamlessly over multiple Zoom meetings, is made up of a trio of sleek, timeless styles crafted in a small atelier in Spain. Complete with a top handle and an interior mirror, the structured beauty case is spacious (not to mention, sturdy) enough to hold a handful of full-size products—and offers an elegant solution to a vanity littered with bottles and brushes. “I keep it on my bathroom counter and throw all of my things in it,” Corona says of the showpiece.
Meanwhile, the range’s two curved clutches—one petite, the other slightly larger—take their cues from Hunting Season’s signature silhouette. “I love that you can fit enough essentials [in it] to carry you through your day,” Huntington-Whiteley says of the small accessory, which she fills with Chanel’s egg-shaped hand cream, Clé de Peau powder, and a two-sided lip pigment by Hourglass. “It can also be pulled out as an evening piece,” Corona muses, noting that it comes in four sharp shades of smooth nappa leather.
With the holiday season fast approaching, consider it the ultimate gift to give to a special someone. “I plan on purchasing a few for my girlfriends and filling them up with beauty goodies,” reveals Huntington-Whiteley, who is quick to add that she’ll be sneaking a style (or two) for herself. As for choosing? “I think I’ll definitely be drawn to one of the black clutches, maybe one of the tan clutches, and, for the case, I think it could be really lovely to have that in both red and tan… But I also want everything in the grey because it’s really unique and unexpected,” she says, trailing off into a laugh. “It’s too big of a question!”
