Kiss App Aims to Help Women Feel Confident With Artificial Lashes

Women's Wear Daily -

New Kiss app is meant to help choose the right lash.  The latest in the ongoing launch of beauty apps is designed to help women feel more comfortable with artificial lashes. Just released from Kiss Products Inc. is Kiss Lash Wardrobe App. It promises to deliver virtual lash trial while also easing the path to purchase. The fake lash category is expanding at double-digit rates, according to market data, but there is business left on the table from women still hesitant about application. The Kiss Lash Wardrobe app focuses on making trial easy and accessible to the consumer through a virtual lash application and direct-consumer purchase option. Users first take a selfie and can then navigate up to 50 different Kiss lash styles, including the newest launch, Kiss Lash Couture Faux Mink Collection. The Faux Mink addition was in response to runway trends showcasing real mink lashes — but at a lesser price. The app allows users to adjust the positioning of the eyelash to fit their eye for the most realistic results. “We wanted women to have the ability to find a lash style that best suits her eye shape and desired look in the most convenient way possible,” said Annette DeVita-Goldstein, senior vice president Global

Andy Warhol’s ‘Sixty Last Suppers’ to Be Shown in Milan

Women's Wear Daily -

WARHOL IN MILAN — Milan’s Museo del Novecento is marking the 30th anniversary of the debut in the city of Andy Warhol’s final work, “The Last Supper,” inspired by Leonardo da Vinci’s masterpiece. The museum overlooking the Duomo cathedral will present the monumental painting “Sixty Last Suppers” March 24 to May 18, in the Sala Fontana, with its dramatic ceiling relief and neon by Lucio Fontana. The presentation anticipates the 2019 project called “Milan and the Legacy of Leonardo 1519-2019,” which will celebrate 500 years since da Vinci’s death. Warhol’s “The Last Supper” bowed in 1987 at the Palazzo delle Stelline in Milan and was commissioned by gallerist Alexandre Iolas in 1984 as a response to the famed da Vinci work created between 1495 and 1498 on the refectory wall of the Church of Santa Maria delle Grazie in the city. In tune with his style, Warhol approached the subject using trinkets and popular images, as well as a black-and-white photograph of a widely circulated 19th-century engraving, and a drawing that he found in a 1913 Cyclopedia of Painters and Painting. He then generated close to 100 variations on the theme — silkscreen paintings, prints and works on paper. Warhol explored different figures making

Dior Homme Debuts Special Sennheiser Headphones Collaboration

Women's Wear Daily -

HONG KONG — In a first for the French house, Dior Homme has teamed with German audio manufacturer Sennheiser to produce a special line of headphones. Dior Homme chief executive officer Serge Brunschwig was here for the unveil on March 22. Visiting the brand’s Hong Kong Landmark store, he was joined at a cocktail party by Asian celebrity guests such as singers Vaness Wu and Endy Chow, and Cantopop lyricist Wyman Wong. It’s the first time Dior Homme has collaborated with a third party. The four products, which come in a sleek black and red colorway, are designed to cater to different scenarios: at home, traveling or for daily wear. “We had a lot in common but we didn’t know it before,” Brunschwig said, adding that the collaboration came about from a meeting 11 months ago. Because Sennheiser is a sponsor of Art Basel’s Hong Kong fair, which is currently on, the two parties thought it would make for a great launch date. Aside from a shared passion for their product, Oliver Berger, Sennheiser head of global design management, said the two companies are similar in age. “Dior is celebrating its 70th year anniversary; Sennheiser will have it in two years as well — so we’re a
