Nars is producing a new line inspired by Andy Warhol. Nars recently collaborated with the Andy Warhol Foundation for one of our favourite upcoming beauty lines of fall 2012. When WWD asked Nars Creative Director Francois Nars why he wanted to do an Andy Warhol-inspired line, he explained:
“Why not Andy Warhol? I have always surrounded myself with Andy’s work and even paid tribute to him in my past collections — Edie Eyeshadow, Chelsea Girls Lip Lacquer, etcetera. This just seemed like the right time to do [a bigger effort]. Even more than 20 years after his death, Andy continues to be one of the most influential figures in both contemporary art and pop culture. Andy said, ‘If everybody’s not a beauty, then nobody is.’ This is the same sentiment I wanted to bring to life with Nars — a forward-thinking attitude toward beauty, and the encouragement to inspire self-expression, creativity and artistry in the women who wear it. It seemed like a natural fit to create a collection that Andy himself might have a hand in if he were alive today.”
The collection will be released in two phases. On October 1, Sephora will release a line inspired by Warhol’s Pop Art. On November 1, department stores will release a Silver Factory-inspired collection. We can’t wait to give ourselves a pop art makeover!
