PAPERSELF Lace Garden Eyelashes for 2011 A/W: Exclusive V&A Collaboration

The most recent project with PAPERSELF is the exclusive collaboration with the world leading fashion and design museum, “The Victoria & Albert Museum,” in London. Seeing the ingenuity of paper lashes, V&A invited PAPERSELF to design, develop and make a pair of paper lashes for their 2011 A/W collection.

As a London based brand and a platform observing the innovative exploration of paper for contemporary product design, PAPERSELF will present extraordinary paper eyelashes in this collaboration.

“The Lace Garden” is the theme of the very first collaboration between PAPERSELF and the V & A Museum. Given the brief of LACE by the V&A, the PAPERSELF team was inspired by French silk bobbin lace from the nineteenth century. The diverse and delicate floral patterns brought the theme of floral gardens to the PAPERSELF team’s imagination. With the refined lace patterns, exquisitely cut details and tactile structure, Lace Garden is a wonderful combination of vintage and contemporary design.

“The Lace Garden” is adorably glamorous and beautifully elegant.

The first lace paper design lashes were launched in September 2011 just before hitting the London Fashion Week and are now available in the main gallery store and online website in The V&A.
