The confinement did not allow us to fully appreciate the remarkable exhibition which was held until July 10 at the Maison de la Culture Japonaise in Paris. It was devoted to the Make Up art in Japan.
This unique exhibition brought together nearly 150 prints and 60 objects (mirrors, combs, hairpins, wigs, etc.), thanks to an immersion in the intimacy and beauty rituals of women of the Edo period (1603-1868). It allowed visitors to discover, through several thematic sections, the evolution of make-up and hairdressing, which met strict social rules and the search for elegance. We suggest that you come back briefly to this moment.
And tell us a little bit more about in this very interesting interview.
This culture, which has already taught us so much, will no doubt continue to do so thanks to its refinement and precision, at odds with certain current approaches that are too strongly tinted with marketing.
