The Night Time Is The Right Time


If you ask Tom Pecheux what inspires his makeup looks at any given show backstage during fashion week, you’ll get a myriad of different responses from a myriad of different designer directions. “Spooky girls” at Marni; “the little sister of Amy Winehouse” at Moschino; and college coeds with “twisted minds” at Derek Lam. But deep down, there is really only one thing that drives the Estée Lauder creative director of makeup: “Parisian women late at night.” It guided his face-painting effort at Anthony Vaccarello in October—and it’s what lies at the heart of Lauder’s new Pure Color Nail Lacquer.  A move that is meant to expand Lauder’s polish offerings to meet an increasing consumer demand for statement nail varnishes, Pecheux has created two new color collections for the beauty behemoth: Beyond Black features deep, creamy opaque shades like Blue Blood, a fabulous inky navy; Viper, a blackened green similar to the color Pecheux ordered up for Vaccarello’s Fall show; and Caviar, a luxurious slate gray. Meanwhile, Metal Mania includes shades like the shimmering Smashed, a ruby glitter-flecked aubergine, as well as Fiery Hot, a gold- and silver-spiked burgundy. They’re technically meant to be worn as evening attire, but, like, when hasn’t a night at the Parisian discotheque lasted well into the morning hours?
