Shu Uemura have announced that for Christmas 2012 they will be collaborating with fashion designer, Karl Lagerfeld for a collection. After years of mutual appreciation between Karl Lagerfeld and legendary, late make up artist, Mr. Shu Uemura, the brand saw a fantastic opportunity to combine the creativity of two incredible fashion icons into a collection. We are all eagerly awaiting more details on the contents of the collection, but from the looks of the press release I’m predicting black, white and red with Japanese motifs.
It turns out that Karl Lagerfeld has actually been using Shu Uemura pressed eyeshadows to sketch with for quite some time:
“I love sketching in the morning. When I go to sleep, I always put my pens and papers next to my bed. I use shu uemura eye shadow [to] sketch, since shu uemura has fantastic colors. I design with shu uemura make-up because other manufacturers do not offer such beautiful colors.”
I love the idea of drawing with make up, it’s actually something I experimented with in my A Level art project, but clearly trying to draw with cheap, drugstore make up isn’t quite the same as using a premium brand like Shu Uemura. If I have a creative flair in the coming weeks I think I’ll have to give it a go. I’m hoping that this image might be another hint of the Shu Uemura Karl Lagerfeld make up collection aesthetics.
This image makes me want to go out and buy some Shu Uemura eyeshadows. We all saw the Sephora, Karl Lagerfeld collection, I’m thinking this one might just be a step up on it. Agreed?
Are you excited?
