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
