Fashion photographer Sarah Moon launches Nars beauty collection


If successful branding is all about story telling, then a new collection from make-up brand NARS should be a sell-out. It brings the work one of fashion’s most distinctive but enigmatic photography talents, Sarah Moon, to a new audience. Moon once worked with Guy Bourdin, and her style is as distinctive, if less well known than her legendary mentor.

Together with the brand’s founder, make-up artist and photographer, François Nars, Moon conceived and art-directed the range; from the colours to the packaging to the theme for the campaign; inspired by imagery from the 1927 film, Metropolis and the idea of transparency.

For those not familiar with Moon, she came to prominence in the 1980’s and 90’s. Her work is painterly and otherworldly, like forgotten daguerreotypes unearthed from the 19th century. Nars himself says, “she works in a very specific world; very intimate, full of softness and beauty – like a dream world.”

Though the two had never met in person, they had mutual friends and Moon was aware that Nars was a fan, as Patti Wilson, (who also styled the campaign) told her, and eventually brought the pair together. Speaking of Moon as one of his photographic heroes Nars said; “I was obsessed with [her] work. I was looking at magazines constantly when I was younger, trying to figure out how the makeup and lighting was used.”

The products themselves cover everything needed to create a theatrically romantic look – matte eyeliner pencils, eye and cheek palettes in dusky pinks and reds, fluttery false lashes and matte lipsticks in various deep tones.

Moon described the process of product development; “we talked about the idea of a kind of mist around the eyes and worked from there. Nothing too obvious, nothing too strident. Just enhancing the woman’s natural features.” Above all, she said “We wanted to tell a story of an authentic woman. Any makeup she is wearing is never a mask. We really collaborated to find this woman that was delicate, yet strong and always very modern.”

“We’re here at my nephew’s wedding. Next thing I know is we’re being evacuated,” Janice Lira said.

As a nurse, Lira has attended to a few emergencies, but she never expected it at her nephew’s wedding.

“I was trying to help my parents, who are in their 80s, down the stairs. I mean that was scary. I'm glad that it was at least on the second floor,” Lira said.

Officials said a heating box started the fire. Lira’s family said they were upstairs having dinner when the lights went off. The sprinklers then went off and they evacuated the building.

Firefighters said the sprinklers put out the fire, and two people were taken to the hospital with minor injuries. No one was seriously hurt.

3 Cleveland fashion businesses blurring the gender standards

Adam King, a graduate of Moore College of Art and Design's fashion program and a longtime clothing designer, never felt limited by style. Until he had his first son. Rack after rack, he recalls, touted skulls and crossbones for boys and rhinestones and glitter for girls.

"As someone who's worked in the fashion industry for my entire adult life, the aesthetic didn't sit well with me," he says. As a designer inspired by minimalist style, he craves versatility. As a parent, he craves the longevity of being able to pass clothes down from child to child – no matter their gender.

In 2014, he took thread and needle into his own hands and launched his children's clothing line, Mooi Kind ("beautiful child" in Dutch). Pieces are made with functionality and style in mind rather than gender, and they've become in-demand internationally. They're sold globally online, and locally at events like the Cleveland Flea.

King is one of the many emerging designers making clothes that aren't defined by gender. Of course, celebrities and runway designers have been blurring the lines for decades. But today, the division in fashion – and marketing in general – has come to the forefront. It was abundantly clear following Ohio parent Abi Bechtel's June 2015 tweet to Target heard around the world. The message was simple: A photo of an aisle reading "Building sets" and under it, "Girls' building sets." In the viral tweet, Bechtel plainly stated, "Don't do this, @Target."

or King, the choice was one that was economical and sustainable. He noticed when it came to clothing swaps between parents, everything was listed by gender.

"I don't want the shelf life of something to end when my child has outgrown it,'" says King. "If I had a daughter next, I wanted her to be able to wear the same things my son wore."

The demand has been so high, in fact, that King is reviewing offers to have his clothes stocked in stores and on websites across the country. He'll be moving into mass production due to the requests. He also plans to partner with artists on a line of children's books based on characters wearing the clothes.

King's leggings and headbands may sell out in 15 minutes whenever he's at a market, but that doesn't mean his black t-shirts with bold white print that reads "Clothes have no gender" don't raise a few eyebrows.

"Some people gristle at that, and seeing the resistance to the idea of what I'm doing can be a little challenging," says King. "If people want to have a conversation about it, I absolutely can. I'm not trying to making a statement about buying something gender neutral. The 'statement' is having clothes that their kids like."
