Nars Summer 2009

Nars Summer 2009

Nars’ Summer Collection is features glowing, sun-kissed ski, shimmering peachy-hued lips and high-drama eyes in deep-tones of metallic-flecked topaz or sparkling azure. Inspired by the tropics, the compacts are filled with bold blues and shimmering golds.

“The look for the Summer 2009 collection is sophisticated, but colorful,” says François Nars, Founder and Creative Director. “The tropics are always inspiring for me,” continues François. “I lived part of my life in Tahiti and the Polynesian Islands and there is so much incredible blue there.” Hence, the blue shadow below. It definitely is a notable hue.
