Tsumori Chisato Designs a Princely Collection For Shu Uemura

Back in high school, Mademoiselle Wood made it a requirement that we all read Le Petit Prince in French — a daunting task at the time. But I soon I became wrapped up in the dreamlike, surprisingly profound, world of this little prince and his similarly unpredictable companions.

Fast-forward to the present day, and I'm captivated by The Little Prince once again, as Japanese designer Tsumori Chisato is set to launch her own adaptation of the classic novella in collaboration with Shu Uemura.

See more pictures, and get additional information about the collection after the jump.

Following her own whimsical style sense, the designer drew inspiration for the from the book for her Fall/Winter clothing, which translates nicely into this forthcoming line for Shu. Look for the the collection, which includes glittery touches, stars, and playful images of cats, in September. It includes: a mini brush set in a gold bag ($72); two palettes of blush and eyeliner ($75 each); a highlighter compact ($53); three shades of lipstick ($36); a quilted makeup bag ($88); and studded fake eyelashes ($72). So it looks like while you could get a royal thrill from these cute items, they'll definitely cost a princely sum.
