L'OCCI TRUCK TAKES BEAUTY PRODUCTS TO FESTIVALS AND EVENTS ACROSS THE U.S. Washington, D.C. — Beauty company L'Occitane en Provence is taking its skincare, body care and fragrance products to new customers via the L'Occi Truck. The retro design of the truck is inspired by the French Citroën H Van, often used by small-town French farmers. Clad in the brand's signature Provençal sunshine yellow, the truck is approximately 16 feet long by 7 feet high, with large windows that invite cus- tomers to view an internal shelving display. A tester rail and foldable display counter will feature an interactive station to engage passersby, and a large exterior screen will display a video showcasing the Provençal lifestyle and the brand's history. The truck kicked off its adventures at the Cherry Blossom festival in Washington, D.C., in April and it will attend events and festivals across the U.S., including Pop- up at The Grove in Los Angeles in October. The truck will also serve as a fill-in at centers where L'Occitane stores are closed for renovations.
