True, we haven't had the chance to use the product (well not yet) but listen: Kjaer Weis' branding, structural design and packaging is being orchestrated by TI fave Marc Atlan. The eminent Mr Atlan forwarded us these preview images and it was certainly a lovely visual treat well within the tradition of his work for Comme des Garcons and Helmut Lang's perfumes. Aside from being a high end organic make-up brand, Kjaer Weis' great breakthrough on this project is to create the first fully refillable make-up system in the world. Here are the further details
The design of the Kjaer Weis cosmetics line distills the fundamentals of women’s makeup to its three essential areas of application: lips, cheeks and eyes.
The compacts are shaped to mirror the features they will be used to enhance: slim and long for the lips, large and square for the cheeks, small and round for the eyes. Aesthetically, the Kjaer Weis line fuses an understated and timeless classicism with the crisp minimal lines of modern jewelry.
Tangibly, the compacts swivel open with an innovative lateral movement, fanning out like the wings of a butterfly.
Entirely refillable, these compacts are purposely conserved rather than recycled.
Cast in white bronze metal, monogrammed in glossy white enamel, and encased in a red textured box, each object conveys the substance and heft of a valuable keepsake.
