Olivia Palermo is about to revamp your manicure! The star will soon join the ranks of fellow fashion icons turned nail experts Alexa Chung, Victoria Beckham, and Gwen Stefani in her new role as Ciate London’s Guest Creative Director for 2015. Not one to follow trends (just take a look at her wedding dress) the four limited edition collections, set to debut into spring 2016, will incorporate Palermo’s fashionable touch in all stages of product development, from the bespoke packaging to the enamel’sproduct and formula, and will mark the brand’s first foray into color cosmetics.
The debut collection (available globally at Sephora this May) will feature three universally flattering shades, utilizing mesh lock, a multi-tasking technology that provides long-lasting, glossy color and strengthens nails. Looking ahead to fall, we’ll see richly pigmented enamels and suede-like textures for nails, and a moisturizing lipstick, smoky eye palette, and contour compact, all with a “modern vintage” feel. Of her appointment, Palermo says, “I’m so thrilled to be working with Ciate London as Creative Director for 2015, bringing to life my ideas for colour cosmetics for the first time. I’m an admirer of their innovation, I’ve enjoyed the creative process and I’m looking forward to the launch of the products coming to life.” Spring can’t come soon enough!
