For Holiday 2014, François Nars projects a bold new design for the future femme. Decoding the thrill of seduction, this captivating  NARS collection exposes a full range of colors and textures with dramatic dimension.

Enter Cutting Edge Color, a new collection inspired by architectural designer Chris Kabatsi’s digital Nebula print. The custom packaging adapts architectural designer Chris Kabatsi’s digitally-rendered Nebula print into a dynamic yet delicate depiction. The intricate web of black gloss grips the signature soft-touch packaging in a modern take on lace.

“The pattern combines architecture and design with beauty and fashion, all things I am very passionate about,” says the brand’s founder, François Nars. “I love the idea of using something abstract and incorporating it into beauty.”

To do so, he “wanted to reinvent lace in a modern way,” focusing much of the efforts on the exterior packaging. As for the color palette, it’s all about “neutrals with a great pop of red and some metallics…very festive.”

Featured in the collection are two new limited-edition formulas: Hardwired Lipstick and Eyeshadow. Both feature cutting edge pigments with enhanced texture, thanks to a brilliant shine for the lips and an intense iridescence on the eyes.

The collection is now available online at and in stores.
