Karl Lagerfeld creates eyelashes with real rubies for Japanese Shu Uemera

The legendary Karl Lagerfeld never fails to surprise its connoisseurs. When he’s not creating iconic fashion, he’s up to something even more unique, more Karl.
This time around, Lagerfeld has collaborated with Japanese cosmetics brand creator Shu Uemura to launch a collection of make-up and accessories titled Mon Shu Uemera or My Darling Shu Uemera.

While there’s a range of luxury cosmetics, you can lay your hands on, what really caught our eye were the ruby eyelashes. Featuring real rubies, these eyelashes combine Lagerfeld’s flamboyant style with Uemera’s Japanese sensibility. Why Uemera? Well, for over a decade, Lagerfeld has been illustrating his sketches with Shu Uemura eye shadows.
Beautifully packaged with the Mon Shu girl illustration that features Lagerfeld’s trademark white shirt and black tie – she’s a new icon he created using Shu Uemura products. She’s cute, daring, and pretty much a Manga character in her own Japanese comic way! The limited-edition eyelashes are available online or at the
Shu Umera counter at Harrods for $ 1,450
