NARS Cosmetics Announces The NARS Steven Klein Holiday Collection



NARS Cosmetics announced today, Feb. 26 the launch of a new unique collaboration with world-class fashion photographer, Steven Klein. The NARS Steven Klein collection, created in collaboration with NARS Founder and Creative Director François Nars and Steven Klein, evokes the photographer/filmmaker’s audacious, provocative work in a limited edition 23-sku collection.

“Steven is one of the most disruptive, fearless photographers of his time. I love his work– his ability to strip down and expose his subjects, to create shocking visual narratives that are never what they seem,” says François Nars.

Renowned for his open and collaborative spirit, Klein’s raw, often controversial approach to his work has made François Nars a fan of his work from the very beginning. The NARS Steven Klein Holiday Collection brings the photographer’s arresting vision and unique sense of color to beauty.

"I am honored to be asked by François to collaborate on this NARS project with him, based on the previous artists he had worked with - Andy Warhol and Guy Bourdin. I have always had the highest regard for François' work. He was the pioneer of moving from one of the greatest makeup artists to creating great makeup,” says Klein. “There are few hands that could do what François has done. He has impeccable taste and stands strong by his work. His colors and his eye for imagery is unique and of the highest caliber.”

Nars and Klein partnered with renowned creative director, Fabien Baron of Baron & Baron to bring the collection to life through captivating packaging and spontaneous elements. The range, available November 2015, will showcase new and innovative packaging, formulas, and shades. Additional information regarding the NARS Steven Klein Holiday Collection will be released in the coming months … stayed tuned and check back with TME for the latest NARS news!
