Resort 2012: Go Where Beauty Takes You with “Jet Set”
From Le Métier de Beauté. Curated by Ken Downing.
NEW YORK, October 2011 – Resort collections are a fashion lovers’ best-kept secret. Just when women are layering cashmere and wool, designers inspire with spirited, special collections that transport us to far away destinations. Now, with Le Métier de Beauté’s first resort color collection, Jet Set, beauty is along for the journey. Curated by Neiman Marcus’s own Ken Downing, this collection of bright, eye-catching shades of nail lacquer and lip gloss take the lead as the next beauty must-haves.
“For this Collection, I plugged into the fluorescent color and bold brights trend that defines the season. Jet Set is bursting with captivating color and all the fashion news you would expect,” says Mr. Downing. “I created it for you, the girl on the go, it’s perfect for wherever the season takes you!”
The Jet Set
This Resort/early spring, it’s all about bright primary colors and bold neons. This is a first-class ticket to color. High-fashion yellows, shockingly luscious hot pinks and outrageous oranges take us out of the cold weather doldrums and onto our next destination, whether it’s the beaches of Bora Bora or a long weekend in Miami.
Three saturated nail lacquer shades transport the wearer to faraway lands:
• ShocKEN Pink – Hot, hot, hot pink
• Not So Safe Orange – A saturated, goes-with-everything bright
• Yield to Yellow – A mellow, primary yellow
Le Métier de Beauté specifically formulates their nail lacquers to be 3-Free without formaldehyde, toluene and dibutyl phthalate (DBP) and Proposition 65-compliant. Fortified with strengthening proteins and hydrators, Le Métier de Beauté Nail Lacquers are highly pigmented for rich, glossy color that is long-wearing and chip-resistant. Packaged in the larger .40fl oz/11.3ml size, each nail lacquer retails for a suggested price of $18 each.
Sheer Brilliance Glosses
Two glosses round out the collection in high-impact shades that deliver delicious, gossamer color. “A bright, color-infused lip gloss glaze the lip with sheer color intensity,” says Mr. Downing.
• Orange Juiced – A just-picked orange with a golden undertone
• HibisKiss – The perfect fuchsia balanced with true red
Ultra-lightweight and enriched with emollients and antioxidants, including Vitamin E and Lanolin, Sheer Brilliance Lip Glosses drench lips in sumptuous, punchy semi-translucent glossy color. Sheer Brilliance’s unique, silky texture and easy-glide formula is never heavy, sticky or tacky. Suggested retail price $32 each.
Le Métier de Beauté’s Jet Set will be available February 2012 in Neiman Marcus, neimanmarcus.com, Bergdorf Goodman and bergdorfgoodman.com.
