Step aside, supermodels. Cute and chic illustrated girls are the stars of the Nars Summer 2016 Color Collection.
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).
