Festive Camellia
A multi-color palette for the face and eyes

SHISEIDO and Y's Collaboration.
Bunches of lush, floral-inspired holiday glamour.

Through a collaboration with Yohji Yamamoto Inc's iconic fashion brand Y's,
SHISEIDO launches a very special palette in 2015.

Using the camellia as both muse and motif, Y's has designed a holiday package with haute couture elegance.
Color creation by art director Dick Page fills the palette with six fresh, camellia-inspired hues that give great color-payoff, with a luxuriously smooth texture.Using this one palette, you can create a variety of makeup looks, applying the colors as both eyeshadow and face color.

The Creative Inspiration

“The camellia flower is always beautiful… at the moment when it blossoms with its greatest energy, and even at the moment when it dies. It does not die away by losing its petals like other flowers, but instead ends its life in its full blossom and form.By depicting this beautiful camellia, filled with dignity and vitality until the end of its life, I have related the camellia's most beautiful moments to those of a woman.”

—Yohji Yamamoto

PROFILE

Established Y's in 1972.Debuted in Paris Fashion Week in 1981 with Yohji Yamamoto line. Was called a "black shock" and created a huge sensation.

Design

A natural sensuality. A playful spirit.
A design that brings the essence of life into the palette.

The palette is covered with camellias in such vivid color, it seems to explode with the visceral sense of a woman's presence, boldly blooming against a background color that is softly understated, but glimmering with a hint of sheen.
Hiding quietly within the leaves of the camellia, a jeweled beetle seems to tickle the flowers, a playful reminder of nature's beautiful mysteries.
A unique, asymmetrical form with an aesthetic that clearly stems from non-western traditions, the palette applies Y's style, its dedication to a woman's comfort, to the process of bringing out a woman's individual beauty.

Texture

Like haute couture fashion,
this silk covered palette is ready to go.

This time, by getting the full cooperation of Y's creative support, silk has been used on the palette just like it is used in Y's clothes; and it has been specially printed in Kyoto. Silk, made from natural fibers, comes to feel even more comfortable against the skin over time. Please enjoy the unique texture of the natural fibers and the specially created haute couture palette.
