An Exclusive Collaboration for Fall|Winter 2011
NEW YORK, October 2011 – For his second season with Le Métier de Beauté, Neiman Marcus’s Fashion Director Ken Downing took the essence of the fall runways and distilled it into a beauty collection that mixes and matches essential color combinations into feminine, elegant beauty duos.
“The fall runways were filled with a return to polished sophistication and elegance. The message: ‘Lady Chic,’ remarks Mr. Downing. “Ensemble dressing – elbow length gloves, a sexy pump and coordinating handbag look right for the fashion moment. Color is paramount! Bordeaux and deep magentas became my inspiration and palette for the matched sets I created for Le Métier de Beauté. Now, the fashion message for the season is on everyone’s lips and fingertips!”
