The design master has reportedly been using shu uemura eyeshadows to illustrate his fashion sketches for the last 20 years, making the collaboration a natural extension of the relationship between the two.
“I design with shu uemura make-up because other manufacturers do not offer such beautiful colours,” commented Lagerfeld (pictured hard at work consulting on the collection below).
While Lagerfeld worked closely with Mr. Shu Uemura to execute the new line, he was responsible for the colour selection and packaging, as well as the visual campaign imagery.
“For this holiday collection, the master of beauty and the master of fashion converge, their talent and passion for beauty evoking miracles for the holiday season,” said shu uemura in a statement.
The Karl Lagerfeld for shu uemura range will be available from November 2012.
