Lancôme released this very pretty, if enormous, bronzer for their summer 2012 Bronze Diva collection. While the design isn't new, I was pleased to have picked this up seeing as how I missed it the when it was originally released with the Bronze Riviera summer 2010 collection.
The palette features a cluster of bamboo leaves and a setting sun against a textured background. I love the Asian-inspired feel to it.
While bamboo has been a traditional theme in Asian art for centuries, the way this particular design is silhouetted, combined with the woven texture, looks like the work of contemporary L.A.-based artist Devon Tsuno. Tsuno works with spray paint and acrylic on handmade paper, and his most recent paintings focus on "L.A.'s non-native vegetation."
Here's a peek at some of his work from 2011, which I would dearly love to hang up in my imaginary beach house on some tropical island.
Do you see the resemblance between these and the bamboo bronzer? Tell me in the comments!
