Suno X Minx
Full disclosure: There are certain things about Fashion’s Night Out that terrify us to the core every time it rears its pre-Spring fashion week head. The crowds, the chaos, and the unchecked public Champagne consumption is enough to make your head spin—literally—at a time when harnessing as much energy as possible for a month of back-to-back shows should be the priority. But the retail extravaganza’s limited-edition beauty collaborations keep us coming back. The annual event has heralded the arrival of specialized Chanel nail lacquers, like Fall 2010′s exceptional Les Khakis de Chanel, as well as that Tom Ford Beauty Black Orchid trio—a solid perfume, deep berry-tinged lipstick, and matching bordeaux-colored nail varnish—that debuted for one night only two years ago, when Ford’s full color collection was just a glimmer in his eye. This year is shaping up to be littered with a new crop of exciting offerings, including this one: Suno has teamed up with Minx to launch six nail overlays that will be available at Saks on Fashion’s Night Out, while supplies last. The original nail decal brand tested out the program with Marc by Marc Jacobs two seasons back, showcasing the wealth of prints from Jacobs’ Fall 2011 show, and its partnership with Suno should prove similarly successful; the patterns from Erin Beatty and Max Osterweis’ Fall 2012 show are ripe for pressing on fingertips.
