Writing about the Mary Quant Autumn/Winter 2010 mook made me wonder about the brand’s legendary crayons of old. Thanks to Lily Pond of Japonisme, I was able to find this photo of vintage Mary Quant pearly crayons. Slim, shimmery and colourful, these makeup crayons must’ve been as art-fulfilling as real crayons.
Trivia: Mary Quant apparently used Caran d’Ache crayons to do her makeup back in the 1950s!
