Yes it’s grey and rainy and yes we are bored of this weather now but what’s putting a massive grin on our faces this morning is news just in that Karl Largerfeld is set to collaborate with one of our all-time fave brands Shu Uemura. Squeal, shriek, yelp!
Just in time for Christmas, Mr Lagerfeld will be creating an exclusive collection for the brand following a long-standing friendship and relationship of mutual admiration of over 20 years between himself and Mr. Uemura.
A meeting between two of the fashion and beauty world’s most highly respected talents, we think this is nothing short of our ultimate dream collaboration. Karl has always been fond of using Shu Uemura’s pressed eye shadows to sketch with (how chic!) and it seems that the partnership was a natural move for the duo. “I love sketching in the morning,” Karl said, “When I go to sleep I always put my pens and papers next to my bed. I use Shu Uemura shadows to sketch, since they are such fantastic colours. I design with Shu Uemura make-up because other manufacturers do not offer such beautiful colours.” Spot on King Karl, we couldn’t agree more.
The two bonded over their untiring quest for innovation and beauty. After all, it was the legendary Mr Uemura that transformed the image of women through makeup and turned beauty into a true work of art. Similarly Mr Largerfeld’s illustrious career as a fashion designer, photographer, curator, you name it, has made him a global sensation in his own right. Yikes, we’re not sure we can wait until Christmas to see it though…
