Following up on his Holiday 2013 limited edition collaboration with Shu Uemura, prolific Japanese artist Takashi Murakami is back with Shu’s Holiday 2016 collection.

And it is literally a bigger and bolder line, with his signature colourful “superflat” super-cheery flowers emblazoned all over the 25-pieces of cosmetics.
Shu’s Holiday lines are super coveted collectibles as they are often created in partnership with big creative names; from Wong Kar Wai to Karl Lagerfeld.
This Murakami one is set to be a sold-out sensation.
All available at Shu Uemura Singapore counters from Nov 1.
