shu uemura is pleased to mark the opening of ‘Christian Louboutin’ at the Design Exchange this June, with the creation of a unique pair of false eyelashes, exclusively available in Canada, inspired by the theatricality and fantasy of the exhibition.
Can you think of anything more magical than a unique pair of false eyelashes designed by shu Uemura’s international creative director, Kakuyasu Uchiide, to celebrate the iconic shoe designer Christian Louboutin? Christian Louboutin is celebrating his twenty year career with a retrospective exhibition showcasing two decades of inspiration and boundary pushing design. Held at the Design Exchange (DX) from June 21 to September 15, 2013, this will be the only Canadian location on the international tour of this exhibition which was first curated by the Design Museum London and Christian Louboutin in 2012.
“What inspired me to create the Rouge et Noir lashes is the beautiful form, texture and colors of Christian Louboutin’s creations”, says Kakuyasu Uchiide. “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”, he continues. “For this occasion, I explored the similarities between shoe design and lash creation. Just like a shoe, lashes can be a form of incredible fantasy and imagination”, Uchiide explains.
Taking inspiration from the stiletto heel and signature red of Louboutin the Rouge et Noir lashes showcase elegantly curved sleek black lashes with a contrasting red feather accent.
