Karl Lagerfeld Collaborates with Luxury Cosmetics Brand
Shu Uemura for its Upcoming Holiday 2012 Collection
Boasting everything from two signature "eye and cheek palettes" to quirky sets of Karl for Shu Uemura eyelashes, the upcoming holiday collaboration between Karl Lagerfeld and the luxury cosmetics brand is a highly anticipated one, to say the least. The entire line, touching homage to Shu Uemura with the colour selection and package design, was directed entirely by Lagerfeld himself (who also photographed the visual campaign).
The "mon chu girl" (AKA: the lovely lady sketch that graces the packaging of the above collection) is a celebration of Japanese pop and European chic. According to the brand, mon shu girl is an icon of "contemporary cuteness born from Karl Lagerfeld's personal brand of European finesse, and Shu Uemura's Tokyo flair."
Some of our favourite items from the collection so far include the Karl for shu smoky velvet palette, eyeliner in blackish satin purple, and lipstick in Celebrity Beige.
