Remember those metallic temporary tattoos all over everyone last summer? They're back this year, and, thanks to Moda Operandi, they're getting a luxury upgrade. The retailer is partnering with Lulu DK for a line of temporary tats modeled after four fine jewelry designers that it sells on the site: Alison Lou, Daniela Villegas, Noor Fares, and Paula Mendoza.
Instead of paying $18,430 for a piece of Noor Fares' actual jewelry, shoppers will be able to stick on strips of lookalike tattoos for $22 to $28. The tattoos last an average of four to six days and come in packages of two or four sheets.
If tattooed fine jewelry isn't appealing, this is only the beginning of Lulu DK's retail collaborations. "We're launching LuLu DK tattoos for Anthropologie and Bloomingdale's," Lulu DK's founder confirmed to WWD. "You can mix the tattoos with your own jewelry. It's cool body art."
