While in the fashion world, collaborations between fine artists and designers have become commonplace, in the beauty industry, they remain an anomaly. Julie Verhoeven, the London-based artist whose fanciful illustrations have already appeared on album covers, in magazines like Self-Service, and on the Marc Jacobs for Louis Vuitton bags that were the "it" accessories in summer 2003, will soon make her beauty mark as well. Besides creating a special fall collection for Mulberry which will surely be met with widespread approval, Verhoeven has joined forces with Lancome to design a limited edition Juicy Tube. Pink Muse is a pale rose gloss that comes in a tube adorned with one of the artist's signature girls. If the quilted Mulberry bag is a wee bit out of your price range, Lancome's Juicy Tube is the perfect way to get your Verhoeven fix.
