If you're a longtime reader of this blog, then you probably know that Mad Men is my favorite show of all time. I've seen every episode dozens of times over, and don't even get me started on the fact that we'll be saying our final goodbyes to Don and company very soon.
Despite my utter sadness about Mad Men ending, there's one thing I'm kind of excited about. Did you know that Birchbox has partnered with AMC and Matthew Weiner (the genius creator of the series) on some boxes for both men and women? If you're a fellow Mad Men junkie, keep reading for the scoop...
As “Mad Men” comes to an end, Birchbox is partnering with the AMC show to commemorate its Sixties beauty aesthetic and influence on contemporary fashion.
“Birchbox turned the beauty category on its head and engaged a generation making them an ideal partner for AMC as we head into the final seven episodes of ‘Mad Men,’” said Theresa Beyer, senior vice president of promotion, activation and partnership at AMC. The final seven episodes of the award-winning show is scheduled to begin April 5. Co-founders and co-chief executive officers of Birchbox, Katia Beauchamp and Hayley Barna and “Mad Men” creator, Matthew Weiner, has curated an assortment of beauty, grooming and lifestyle products for both the men’s and women’s April boxes. Female subscribers will receive a selection of products like inky liquid liner to create a cat eye or hairspray to fashion a bouffant. Birchbox Man members will get a range of items that includes grooming products and accessories.
The “Mad Men” women’s box is priced at $10, while the men’s is $20. Additionally, the collaboration will incorporate a series of exclusive editorial and video content to be featured on birchbox.com.
If you're interested in these boxes, they'll debut next month (April) so stay tuned. In the meantime, are you a Mad Men fan? Any theories or guesses about how the series will end?
