Well-known and well-loved designer Karen Walker is bringing her style aesthetic to the beauty world by partnering with beauty giant Sephora to launch a make-up brush collaboration. The range (entitled Karen Walker for Sephora Collection Amber Craft) will include a six- brush set of tortoiseshell embossed makeup brushes. The set reportedly covers all bases and includes the must-haves for any beauty regime including a foundation brush and classic powder brush.
According to pictures obtained by style.com the brushes feature Karen Walker’s signature filigree pattern, which is also found in her jewellery collections and sunglass styles. Alongside the brush set, the range is also set to include a compact mirror designed in the style of the best-selling Karen Walker ‘Orbit’ shades.
Karen Walker is known for her trademark aesthetic of retro inspired, vintage pieces with modern details. Her innovative take on women’s fashion has seen the Karen Walker brand make an unmistakable impression on the fashion world, an impression she will undoubtedly strive to transcend into the beauty arena. Walker showed her first runway collection in 1998 and her designs have since garnered worldwide attention and graced the wardrobes of the likes of Lady Gaga, Rihanna, Claire Danes, Jennifer Lopez and Sienna Miller.
The brush set and compact mirror are set to hit Sephora stores from October 2015 onwards, just in time for the Christmas gift-giving season! It seems no makeup collection will be complete without the pieces, after all, no sunglasses collection is complete without a pair of KW ‘Northern Lights’ or ‘Super Dupers’.
The brush set will reportedly retail for $125 USD and the compact mirror for $48.
