Nars has been crafting the beauty looks for the designer’s shows since 2013, and the designer’s love of floral motifs has seamlessly diffused into this collaboration, entitled Strange Flowers.

Unveiled at the designer’s AW 2018 show held at the Tate Britain on Monday, the 13-piece Erdem for Nars Strange Flowers collection consists of products for the cheeks, eyes and lips and comes in floral packaging.

Inspired by strange flowers, the collection has been two years in the making, according to the brand’s spokeswoman, who noted Erdem’s penchant for makeup. The designer has been hands-on in the process and his involvement led the brand to launch items it has never produced before, such as a lip powder palette.

“It was really interesting to explore my aesthetic in collaboration with Nars and see how far we could push different elements through colour and product. It was fascinating to develop new pigments and palettes as well as the cosmetics themselves.” – Erdem

The price range is £15 for blotting papers to £35 for lip or eyeshadow palettes. The range will be sold in Selfridges on April 15 and nationwide May 1.
