Ladies, Meet Ruffian Red
You know you’ve arrived in the fashion world when M.A.C. cosmetics names a color after you. The designer duo, Ruffian, newly launched the ultra cool ready-made manicures and lipsticks inspired by their runway vibe. Brian Wolk and Claude Morais describe the crescent nail set as “inspired by the phases of the moon”. Then there’s the red ones, which “one-up” your average signature red with a gothic French manicure in a talon shape, gold tipped square nails and demure black and créme ovals. We’re obsessed.
The Ruffian Red masterminds now join the eponymous legion of personalized nail names such as “Yves Klein Blue” and “Titian Red”. How did it all get started? ”Isabella Blow was the woman who gave us our first break” gushes the designers who take a moment to reflect on the guardian angel who is the focus in London this week. “She introduced us to Nadja Swarovski who sponsored our first show” they say with a smile. “We have very fond memories of her”. In respect of Isabella’s legacy, check out the Isabella Blow Foundation.
The M.A.C. Ruffian Collection retail for $18 for lipsticks and $25 for nail sets (24 pre made) on MacCosmetics.com.
