CHRISTOPHER KANE'S COLLABORATES WITH NARS
By The Beauty Hub | May 19th, 2015 | Brands,Editors Pick,News
Christopher Kane brings his signature aesthetic to NEONEUTRAL, a limited edition collection of unexpected shades and formulas. The Christopher Kane for NARS collection permeates the perfect balance of bold brights and natural flesh tones – together they create a new version of neutral. Eyes are enhanced with iridescent rose gold, pink lilac, and violet. Cheeks are flushed with soft beige or hot pink. And lips are saturated in high-shine shades of neon pink and coral that subtly stain after the gloss is gone.
London Fashion Week collaborators since 2012, Christopher Kane and NARS continue to create a range of luminous runway looks defined by flawless skin and bold brows each season. Sharing a passion for vivid colours amplified by unconventional creativity—Kane, with his ability to create beauty from unexpected motifs, and NARS, in its unapologetic approach to makeup use and application—a deeper collaboration was born.
The Christopher Kane for NARS Collection, a line of Eyeshadows, Blushes, Illuminating Multiples, and Lip Glosses showcases Christopher Kane’s unexpected and edgy design aesthetic with NARS’ iconic and bold beauty philosophy.
“Makeup should be a wardrobe. It’s about adding colors that have a great impact on you.” –François Nars, Founder & Creative Director
“I often use neons as neutrals. They refresh and inspire.” –Christopher Kane.
Q&A Session with Christopher Kane.
Why did you decide to work with Nars? Why now?
NARS has been a long-standing and valued partner of ours, so this collaboration was an obvious fit. NARS has the same bold and creative aesthetic that is signature to the brand and I’m excited to share what we’ve created together.
Can you tell us about the color palette for the collection, are these signature Christopher Kane colours?
The colour palette is based on artifacts brought together from our past collections, like our signature safety buckle and bolt fastenings. These artifacts naturally communicated three Christopher Kane color themes; our classic bold neons, our brand shade of nude and futuristic iridescence. These colors are signatures of the brand and we wanted to represent that in the purest sense.
Can you tell us about the final products you selected for the collection?
It is a full colour collection featuring products for eyes, lips and cheeks and combines NARS’ iconic and bold beauty philosophy with our design aesthetic.
