Uchiide's louboutin inspired eyelash design

That, my friends, is shu uemura international creative director Kakuyasu Uchiide‘s sketch for the very limited edition pair of custom false eyelashes inspired by the Christian Louboutin’s exhibit at Toronto’s Design Exchange (DX) from June 21 to September 15, 2013. The lashes will be unveiled in an auction with proceeds donated to the DX in support of the Emerging Designer Competition. Details about the auction will be revealed in June.

Here they are. (!!!)

Okay that warrants another (!!!).

There are only 15 pairs of “Rouge et Noir” available in the Canadian market, and each one will be numbered and signed by Uchiide. “What inspired me to create the Rouge et Noir lashes is the beautiful form, texture and colors of Christian Louboutin’s creations. To me, their power to tell a story is both surprising and impressive. With a single shoe, it is possible to easily imagine the story about the woman who wears them”, Uchiide explains.

According to Uchiide, the curve of the sleek black lashes in “Rouge et Noir” are inspired by the stiletto heel, and the red feathers provide a sensual contrast. These lashes are truly spectacular in photos and *grabby hands* I want one but most definitely wouldn’t be able to afford it.

Perhaps they’d accept my soul as payment. 🙂

    I would do a LOT to get my hands on these lashes … but I can’t picture myself wearing them! All I can see when I look at them is how great they’d look on you! ♥ Jessica

  • Those lashes are cray cray… Wha? Christian Laboutin, oh how fab those lashes are! I must have a pair! I wonder what they’re made of. I wonder what the mere 15 pairs will go for??

    These lashes look far out. The novelty of it all, only 15 pairs but… Seriously? I probably won’t pay anything for them. WHERE would I wear this to??? Furthermore, I don’t have the face or style to rock lashes like this without looking loony. LOL!

  • Woohooo, too cool! 😀

    I love Louboutins and Shu Umera, but I’m not liking these at all. 😛
