Steven Klein is a Narssist
The pair has joined forces for a limited edition collection that will hit shelves just in time for the holidays, bringing Klein’s vision and unique sense of color to shades we’re sure to love. While the details of the collection are under tight wraps, beauty buffs can expect 23 makeup must-haves to add to your wish list with a lush campaign shot but Fabien Baron of Baron & Baron to bring the collaboration to life.
It’s an especially exciting endeavor for Nars himself, who has been a fan of Klein’s raw and audacious approach to photography since his start. “Steven is one of the most disruptive, fearless photographers of his time,” he said. “I love his work– his ability to strip down and expose his subjects, to create shocking visual narratives that are never what they seem.”
The feeling was mutual. “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,” Klein said. “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. 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.”
With their penchant for striking colors and imagery, we can’t wait to see what the pair have created!
