Kimono Art: Mamechiyo x Shu Uemura

Mamechiyo, a modern Japanese kimono artist, collaborated with Shu Uemura early spring 2012 where  her kimono prints were featured on the Japanese cosmetic brand's best-selling products: cleansing oils; and some others. 

I've seen the Shu Uemura products in person and was very tempted to buy every bottle from the Mamechiyo collection but I refrained as I do not use Shu Uemura products. They were stunning though! 

I personally love kimono prints and have been a fan of Mamechiyo since I saw one of her kimono designed exclusively for Blythe dolls. Seeing such beauty come to life on a piece of clothing really is inspiring.
