This just in… a little bit of Christian Louboutin to brighten up your day.
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.
What do you think of this special collaboration between shu uemura and Christian Louboutin? How much would you pay for them?
