Beauty from Japan. From our world to yours.
The Film That Inspires us to
Defy Our Own Limitations,
SHISEIDO’s four brand ambassadors show us that with one another,
without limits, our future is beautiful
Story by Malena Harbers
There’s a deep connection between SHISEIDO, Tokyo and Ginza, the city’s most fashionable district. All three share a contrasting mix of East meets West, tradition and innovation, evolving together over the 148 years since SHISEIDO was founded.
A huge milestone is on the way and soon SHISEIDO will be celebrating a remarkable 150 years. In anticipation of the occasion, SHISEIDO has created a video featuring the city itself, as well as four inspirational ambassadors who redefined the concept of beauty.
What Exactly is the Film All About?
The SHISEIDO film presents the power we all have within us to transcend the limitations in our lives. SHISEIDO’s four brand ambassadors share their personal journeys of transcending beauty boundaries and the life messages they learned. The film ends with a shot of SHISEIDO Limited Edition Ultimune Power Infusing Concentrate and Ultimune Defense Refresh Mist.
