Remember when I told you back in January that one of my favorite design duos, Viktor & Rolf, were teaming up with Shu Uemura to create a line of false eyelashes? Well, the fruits of their labor are finally ready for the public, and the lashes are just as fresh and whimsical as you would expect. The three falsies were inspired by Viktor & Rolf's Spring 2008 collection, which itself was inspired by Marcel Marceau. It's no surprise, then, that they're fit for a clown, especially the rhombus with its gold-diamond pattern that looks like it belongs on a jester. I'm loving the playfulness of the set, even though they're not exactly wearable day-to-day (although stay tuned for pictures of Sugar girls wearing them!). If you're clamoring for the lashes, they'll soon be on Shu Uemura's website.
To read what Viktor & Rolf have to say about each of the lashes, click on the pictures below.
- "A glance with a certain message, directed to a certain someone is like a precious diamond, something to be treasured."
- "[The] lash is an instant smile, the blink of an eye, a moment of attraction."
- "These lashes were created with the concept of the eye becoming a dove. . . a messenger of hope."
