To il­lus­trate the point of fash­ion­able beach mo­ments “lived out through colour and lit­tle es­capes”, makeup guru François Nars turned to con­tem­po­rary artist Kon­stantin Kaka­nias for sum­mer.

The La-based il­lus­tra­tor has worked with brands like Bar­neys NY and Tif­fany & Co pre­vi­ously, and has also de­signed tex­tiles for Saint Lau­rent Paris and Chris­tian Lacroix. Says François of Kon­stantin: “The sense of en­ergy and play in his com­po­si­tions is so clever and still so chic. He was the per­fect col­lab­o­ra­tor to help turn our colour sto­ries into fan­tas­tic scenes.”

The lim­ited edi­tion Nars Sum­mer 2016 Color Col­lec­tion com­prises var­i­ous shades of Lip Cover ($40 each), Dual-in­ten­sity Eye­shadow ($44 each) and Dual-in­ten­sity Blush ($68 each).
