Today's big beauty news comes from Page Six. François Nars was seen and heard having lunch with photographer Steven Klein (link partially NSFW) and discussing the launch of a makeup collaboration, due around the holidays. I'm not sure what exactly will be Klein's role in the makeup itself, as it is said that independent art director Fabien Baron is going to be in charge of the overall look of the products. But we can expect an edgy campaign, and hopefully several covetable items.
This is not the first time François Nars finds inspiration in an artist's work. The Guy Bourdin collection from Holiday 2013 was definitely interesting, as was the Andy Warhol collection the year before. But in this case we're talking about a living photographer who is going to have an input. I'm curious to see where it goes.
EDIT: These story is now confirmed by NARS PR.
