Shu Uemura and Lagerfeld did their first collaboration back in 2012, creating a holiday collection and the fictional character Mon Shu. This time around, they used Choupette as their real life muse, who in turn became an imaginary girl, Shupette. The girl and the cat share a number of qualities and characteristics, most notably their love of pink, white, and of course all things fluffy.
Shu Uemura's international artistic director, Kakuyasu Uchiide met with Style.com's Amy Verner to discuss the collection. Of the muse/creation Shupette, he said, "She's a cat and she's a real girl. So what kind of facial features does she have? I used my imagination. I also imagined her like a model." The company's signature false lashes are one of the most fun pieces in the collection and feature tufts of fur and tiny rhinestones.
The collection is fun, playful, and delightfully girly. Perfect for Choupette, and perfect for you. Enjoy!
