Nars Cosmetics and designer, Erdem Moralioglu, have launched their very first, much-anticipated make-up collaboration entitled ‘Strange Flowers’. Having long worked in partnership together backstage at his ready-to-wear fashion shows to create the beauty looks that complement his collections, it’s now time for the make-up to come forward to centre-stage.
A mix of demure and daring shades, the 13-piece-strong capsule collectionperfectly reflects the eerily beautiful aesthetic that has become synonymous with Erdem’s womenswear brand. It’s where romance meets whimsy and where femininity meets delicacy. The range, which was debuted backstage at his AW18 show, includes six lipsticks, two blushes, two eyeshadow palettes and a highly covetable lip powder palette. A creamy, opalescent highlighting pencil and pretty blotting papers complete the collection.
With Erdem deeply involved in every step of the product development, the attention-to-detail is second to none. Where the products are concerned, you will find unusual shades of marigold, mink and mulberry sitting perfectly alongside pink, red and fuchsia – all in fresh textures and modern finishes, such as velvety creams and silky powders, that apply with perfection. As you might expect from a fashion designer, the exterior of the products has received just as much consideration too, with palettes and lipsticks encased in beautiful duck egg blue packaging and the boxes are adorned with one of three original Erdem floral prints, each of which have been handpicked by the designer himself.
The perfect marriage between fashion and beauty, each piece from this limited-edition range is sure to become a collector’s item. Which one will you choose?
