Beauty is artifice, if the beauty you're talking about is cosmetic. Natural's not in it, much as it pretends to be. The post-digital usually veils this, with great sleight of hand, in the best beauty campaigns and the most seductive editorials, touting the power of the product to transform and transcend. Do we believe this anymore ? I think we do. No matter how far you take it, no matter how Brechtian your post-production gets as an image-maker, we will always want to believe that not only is the image real, but that it is also possible. That is the art of artifice, which is what 21st century fashion has become.

Ok, that bit about the jhassoul soap ( or ghassoul as my jar proclaims)... works. As does the pointed advice about preferring Filipino cigars instead of skin-sallowing cigarettes. In any case, I was never going to argue with anyone who starts life as the normal enough Luciana Malgeri, before marrying up all the way to principessa level. And then that futuristic taste in eye-wear, (Run DMC would have spasmed in envy): that was bound to be a deal clincher.

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
