According to Julie Naughton at WWD,
Nars Cosmetics is giving Andy Warhol another 15 minutes of fame with a new color cosmetics collection expected this fall. Nars Andy Warhol — created by François Nars under a license with The Andy Warhol Foundation — is intended to evoke the cool, image-rich, character-laden world of Warhol in a limited edition collection said to showcase innovative packaging, formulas and shades. The project, which will be launched in the U.S. in October and elsewhere in November, is said to be the brand’s largest strategic collaboration to date.
Well count me among the very excited! I love Andy Warhol's work, his carefully self-crafted enigmatic public persona, and his commentary on the commodification of culture is as valid today as it was then. I am very curious to see what François Nars is going to come up with! That I love Warhol & NARS makes this all the more exciting! Are you interested in this collaboration? Do tell.
