Serge Lutens launches cosmetics line in the UK
Serge Lutens has just launched his first cosmetics line at Harvey Nichols, London last week.
Luten’s new collection to the UK, Serge Luten ‘Neccessaire de Beaute’, has been created in collaboration with Shiseido.
His new cosmetic line is cased in chic black lacquered packaging, baring the hallmark of great design and the expertise of a professional a make – up artist.
Some of his products being sold are a kohl eye liner – a rich pot of inky black liner that comes with a double-ended tool to apply: one end for fine lines, the other for smudging. The lipsticks, available in the ‘hot for the moment’ berry shades, are cleverly smaller than your average lipstick. This ingenious design means they will fit perfectly in clutch bags with room to spare!
Luten started his career as a photographer for top fashion magazines in Paris. He then turned his expertise to make-up in the sixties, where he produced a make-up line for Christian Dior in 1967.
In 1980 he was appointed Creative and Art Director of Shiseido where he started creating his world-famous fragrances. He created some of Shiseido’s most infamous scents including the ‘Nombre Noir’ in 1982.
Shortly after he opened his own perfumery ‘Les Salons du Palais Royal’.
