[ MAC ] Pret-a-Papier

Craft Paper Couture – an inspired idea cut like a pattern and whipped up into a frisky little “funny face” frock. Then, strip it back to its essence for Summer 2010 for a Pret-a-Papier colour collection.
It was a Project Runway challenge of sorts, with paper as the source, the instigator of ideas,
the beginning of something simply, basically beautiful.
Lipstick, LipGlass, Eye Shadow, Paint Pot, Chromografic Pencil, Studio Fix Lash,
Impeccable Brow Pencil, Sheertone and Mineralize Blushes, and Nail Lacquer
in a seamless spectrum of parchment-to-vellum beiges, with an occasional,
clever colour spill, coral among the most au courant.
