I am a little late on the reports these days but as I always say better late than never. Three weeks ago, I went to the exhibition of Artisan&Artist new SS2015 collection.
I am still discovering the brand. To me it always was all about the makeup but they carry a much wider range of items, from camera accessories to travel bags. I particularly liked the backpacks with wide openings. It is always a pleasant surprise to find something cute being also extremely functional. I posted a picture of me trying it on on my social channels and it became quite a hit. My 18 year cousin wants it. My mom wants it. That’s how versatile the style is. ^-^
The camera straps are brand’s best selling items, especially the woven silk ones. They are handmade with traditional weaving techniques by Kyoto artisans. They are not just made in Japan, they are made right in the middle of Japan’s most exquisite artistic center where traditions and skills are perfected generation after generation. If it’s made in Kyoto, it’s as good as it gets.
The brand of course also carries a wide range of professional makeup cases from transformer-like giants to small compact ones you can carry to the set for final touches. They even have a line of makeup brushes – so soft, I couldn’t stop touching them. ^-^
Artisan&Artist is not all about women. Their range of male bags as well as professional camera accessories is just as big.
Unfortunately, I wasn’t allowed to take pictures of the new SS2015 collection but take my word for it – it’s fabulous. Bright colors, summer themes and great versatile styles. You’re going to love it. It will be released part by part starting from January.
For the holiday season, Artisan&Artist is partnering up with Disney and SK-II – my favorite cosmetics brand. Both collaborations look fantastic but I am particularly attracted to the SK-II one. I know I don’t need it but I WANT IT anyway!
But I did get a wonderful early Christmas present from the brand – this super cute makeup pouch. It is the perfect size and keeps all my makeup thingies organized. I can see everything upon opening the pouch – no more fishing around for the right item. ^-^
By the way, the new hyper sharp Maybelline eyeliner is incredible. It is so precise, I make no mistakes when drawing a cat eye line. Highly recommend. ^-^
Happy holidays my lovelies and happy holiday shopping. An exciting season is upon us. ^-^
