De­but­ing 16 limited Guy Bour­din edi­tions just in time for the fes­tive sea­son, François Nars, a self-con­fessed ad­mirer of the late pho­tog­ra­pher, is in­spired by the racy, cin­e­matic im­ages: “It’s the ex­plo­sion of colours, and also the ex­treme so­phis­ti­ca­tion of the girls in his pho­to­graphs,” he ex­plains to Jamie Huck­body, Harper’s BAZAAR ed­i­tor when he un­veiled the col­lec­tion in Paris to the press. “The mod­els look t to­tally ar­ti­fi­cial, but very deca­dent and never cheap or vul­gar. I’m drawn to bring­ing that jux­ta­po­si­tion

to life in make-up.” Nars x Guy Bour­din Cin­e­matic Blush in Ex­hibit A, RM120 “I love Bour­din’s sense of colour, his mad­ness. The way he breaks so many rules. The way he saw women; the strong sex­ual as­pect in

the im­ages.” – François Nars
