La Prairie’s focus on the eye area has led to the brand’s latest breakthrough innovation –Skin Caviar Eye Lift – a game-changing serum for the eye area, including brows. “Research by scientists at La Prairie found that with regular use, over time, the eyes appear opened while the eye contours and eyebrows appear redefined too, with fine lines smoothed out and bags and puffiness reduced” says Remy Rippon, Vogue’s senior beauty editor. Inspired by its research on ‘the gaze’, La Prairie has created a powerful exhibition first revealed at Art Basel 2019 in Basel, Switzerland. Titled Eyes in Focus, the exhibition is a curation of the work of three Swiss female artists, who each created pieces to honour the beauty and timelessness of ‘the gaze’. In Résonance, artist Daniela Droz uses the notion of shadow to represent the passing of time, in a series of three works defined by graphic lines and the expressive use of light. “To look at one’s own eyes in a mirror,” Droz describes of her work. “The eyes are the window of the external beauty but also of the inner beauty, and facing ourselves we are pushed to look for emotions that belong to us.” In Hitiata, a work by Swiss-Guinean photographer Namsa Leuba, time stands still as the viewer is confronted by the direct gaze of the woman. “The focus on the eyes makes it possible to show through the photographic capture of the gaze, or the symbolism, which is attached to it, the way in which the emotions are addressed, and what is inscribed in us when we share them,” she shares. Senta Simond, who focuses on stunning portraiture in her work, provides a series of striking close-ups of young women, causing us all to pause and reflect on the subject’s gaze. “I am interested in the multi-dimensionality of the human being – all kinds of emotions, such as vulnerability, anxiety, melancholy, as well as the more conventional ones, like joy and strength. And what communicates emotion more clearly than the gaze?” To find out more about La Prairie’s Art Basel partnership or latest innovation, Skin Caviar Eye Lift, please visit laprairie.com.au.
