Petal Pushing, Shu In
Shu Uemera came out with graphic compacts designed by artist Mika Ninagawa. She uses kaleidoscopic color and has published more than 40 photography books, represented by the same Tokyo gallery that introduced Takashi Murakami the designer of the colorful Louis Vuitton bags. The compacts are stockd with megawatt Tokyo "cool eye" colors, lipsticks and glosses in lollipop shades, a makeup box and cosmetic case that are works of art, and a set of edgy, purple tipped eyelashes. She has also designed prints for Celine.
