If you don't know who Pierre Hardy is, go have a look at his website here. Shoes, glorious shoes!
Have you ever thought of shoes as little architectural creations? If your answer is yes then you are a shoe addict! If your answer is no, don't worry, a shoe addict you can still be!
Pierre Hardy has not had any architectural training and yet his creations are. Trained in Fine Arts and dance he got noticed when he designed his first shoe collection for Dior in 1988. In 2001 he collaborated on a fabulous Balenciaga shoe collection which contributed to make of the fashion house one of the most avant-garde couture house in Paris.
These colors in the new NARS collection are inspired by Hardy's 2013 high fashion shoe collection.
Pierre Hardy for NARS blushes in Boys Don't Cry and Rotonde
Pierre Hardy for NARS Nail Polish Pairs in Sharks, Sharplines, Vertebra
Easy Walking, Venemous, Ethno Run
The blushes are $48.00 each. The gold over spray will disappear with a few brush swipes. For some this can be a let down but in my opinion it makes these more wearable.
The nail polish duos are $32.00 each. I can't comment on the durability of the formula but there's a good chance that I will fall for either Sharplines or Ethno Run, if not both!
These are now all available online here.
