Two of the most renowned talents from the worlds of fashion and beauty come together to create a special collection.


Uniting over their untiring quests for innovation and beauty, Karl Lagerfeld and Shu Uemura have announced an exclusive cosmetic collection for Christmas 2012.

The designer’s 17-piece collection will be delivered to Shu Uemura’s 400 locations across the world. (I wonder if it’ll be available in Toronto…) All the details about the collection are not yet available but we do know that the Chanel creative director is working on the colors and packaging. He has already shot the advertising campaign.

This moment of creation has roots in more than 20 years of friendship and mutual admiration between the pair. Lagerfeld isn’t merely a fan of Shu Uemura — he’s also a customer. For the past 20 years, Lagerfeld has been using the brand’s products to sketch his designs, draw portraits, and even illustrate political cartoons. Lagerfeld said he turns to Shu Uemura for his artistic needs “because other manufacturers do not offer such beautiful colors.”
