Karl Lagerfeld for shu uemura

Fashion and beauty often go hand in hand, and designer Karl Lagerfeld proves this with a love of the Japanense cosmetics brand, shu uemura.

But, he does have a slightly unconventional use for their eyeshadows compared to you and I – the shades are used to illustrate his fashion sketches.

Mr Shu Uemura and Karl Lagerfeld

After 20 years of sketching with shu uemura shadows, this talented artist, designer and photographer will be collaborating with the beauty company to create a special range of cosmetics.

“I design with Shu Uemura make-up because other manufacturers do not offer such beautiful colors.” – Karl Lagerfeld

Karl Lagerfeld is in charge of choosing colours and packaging design and has photographed a visual campaign to promote the range.

Simply titled, “Karl Lagerfeld for shu uemura” the collection will be launching in November 2012 in time for the holidays.
