Marcel Wanders

Precious Pearl


The delicate The Muse and the Pearl compact powder is the latest addition to the exclusive range of beauty products designed by Marcel Wanders for Cosme Decorte, a premium cosmetics brand, founded in Japan in 1970.

Drawing his inspiration to design this compact powder from the Dutch painter Johnannes Vermeer’s masterpiece «The Girl with the Pearl Earring», Wanders has reflected this inspiring source in a series of details. In addition to the image impressed in the powder, of a young girl holding a pearl, the format of the compact recalls an oyster shell, home to the pearl, eternal symbol of luxury and beauty.
