Oh la la!! This week saw Lulu Guinness launch the first part of her AW15 Collection and it is *really* cool! Named Tape Face, and inspired by Lulu’s fascination with faces and experimentation with tape. Imagine her iconic pouting lips and winking eyes simply marked out in tape. It’s playful, fabulous and a little edgier than her usual style.
The Tape Face collection can be bought in a verity of different forms, a passport holder, purse and wallet, as well as clutch and handbags. The eyes are black and the pouting lips are dark red. It’s modern, cool and intrinsically Lulu.
Tape Face Customised Backpack
A few nights ago, I was invited to get my craft on and have a few cocktails to celebrate to launch of Tape Face 2.0. For a limited time, you can step into Lulu’s shoes and create a backpack just the way you want it; just pick the eye colour, lip colour and trot around town like you designed it yourself! Create it online and preview it using Tape Face technology. Of course, each bag is appliquéd and/or screen printed especially for you in her studio, but for one night only, the tools of the trade were moved to a venue in East London, where I got to experience the service and she how it’s done.
The limited edition Tape Face Customised Backpack and the full Tape Face Collection is out now and available on the Lulu Guinness website. Check the Lulu Guinness Instagram account to see more images and check the #TapeMeImYours for inspo as well as my own design.
