Selfridges has teamed up with Charlotte Tilbury to celebrate legendary photographer, Norman Parkinson, with a limited edition collection of compacts and make-up bags.

Parkinson was one of the twentieth century’s most iconic and ostentatious fashion photographers, active from the 1930s right up until his death on a shoot in Singapore in 1990. Moving fashion photography out of the static posed imagery of his predecessors, his impulsive, unstructured approach and enchanting eccentric persona charmed his famous subjects.

 

 

The result today is a unique testament to fashion and society of the 1900s, with Parkinson reinventing his style to reflect the decades from his spontaneous representations of the 1930s through to the exotic shoots of the 1970s and 1980s.

Standing at 6 foot 5 inches, Parkinson himself was never an unobtrusive presence behind the camera. He was flamboyant, elegant and as much part of fashion as his model and society subjects in his longstanding relationship with Vogue, and assignments for Harpers Bazaar and many other magazines.

Paying homage to the legendary photographer’s body of work, the Charlotte Tilbury collection features his iconic images on a series of compacts and make up bags. The imagery sits gallantly in the Charlotte Tilbury make-up range. Parkinson’s grandson, a friend of the make-up artist, granted her access to the Parkinson archive of over 750,000 negatives and 3000 original prints to make her choice for this special collection and bring the photographer’s name and photography to life for a new generation.

Jerry Hall and Carmen Dell’Orefice are some of the big name models that feature in The Charlotte Tilbury x Norman Parkinson collection available from Selfridges Exchange Square, Selfridges Trafford and Selfridges.com.
