We started off the Naeem Khan fall 2012 experience backstage with James Boehmer, NARS Director of Global Artistry, who told us the look is “all about the liner paired with radiant skin.” He used the Eyeliner Stylo, a new item for NARS coming out in fall 2012 paired with the Larger Than Life Lengthening Mascara to create the cool, graphic eye look, while Laurent Philippon for Bumble & Bumble thought of an easy, slouchy French twist made to look spontaneous and a bit messy with pieces coming out in the front for added softness. Since the clothing were largely in a palette of silver, cream, and black, CND’s Angi Winkle used two coats of Bloodline to add “a pop of color to the collection.”

Inspired by the “decadence and dust of India,” Khan stated that it took ” hundreds of artisans and three months to put together. This collection is a blend of various ancient artistic techniques used on both bodies and textiles, coming together in a vision fit for the 21st century.” The lineup was indeed gorgeous, meant for red carpet dressing or luxurious lounging, as Khan stays true to his quality and craftsmanship, which trumps all trends and fads.
