Beauty brand Nars has a longstanding record of working with industry insiders to create one-of-a-kind, keepsake collections. In the past they’re worked with major names like Marc Jacobs, Christopher Kane and photographer Guy Bourdin. This month they’ve released the new Nars x Steven Klein collection. Klein, a photographer known for his avant-garde looks, and Nars have designed a 13-piece color and a 10-piece gifting collection just in time for the holidays. The line is packaged in Klein’s surreal images and art (including a lipstick shaped like a bullet), and includes edgy, custom-made shades. To give beauty lovers a feel for the collection, Nars just released a haunting, but beautiful film, which solidifies this collaboration as one of the brand’s best.

Even the launch party was a dark rave filled with neo-burlesque dancers, drag queens, designers (no party is complete without Alexander Wang in attendance), models, performers and celebrities. “Steven and I love decadence, we love fun parties—real parties that you don’t see anymore. Fun people, beautiful people, crazy people, that’s what makes a great party—a mix of many different things,” François Nars told Refinery29 at the event. “Steven and I don’t like typical beauty. We like very different types of beauty and this reflects our taste." Sounds like a match made in heaven. While select pieces have been made available since early October, the complete collection will not be out until November 1.

Nars x Steven Klein is available online at Nars and Sephora. Priced from $20-$160.
