When it comes to arty collaborations, few do it better than NARS. Having previously launched collections in conjunction with the likes of Guy Bourdin and Andy Warhol, makeup master François Nars has now called upon Steven Klein to create a limited edition holiday range.
The famed fashion photographer, who has shot everyone from Madonna to Lady Gaga, is set to bring his somewhat dark, signature style to the brand’s 23 piece Christmas 2015 collection set to launch in November. “There are few hands that could do what François has done,” Klein stated. “He has impeccable taste and stands strong by his work. His colours and his eye for imagery is unique and of the highest caliber – I am honoured to be asked by François to collaborate on this NARS project with him.”
And it seems that the appreciation is mutual with Nars commenting that, “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.”
Christmas wish lists just got a lot more interesting.
