New York Fashion Week / Fall 2011
OPI Struts Runway with Top Designers, Including BCBGMAXAZRIA, MAX AZRIA, Hérve Léger, Rebecca Taylor, and Charlotte Ronson*
OPI hit the runway for New York Fashion Week/Fall 2011, kicking off with BCBGMAXAZRIA on Thursday, February 11. Models were manicured with OPI Nail Lacquer in Samoan Sand, a warm beige with pink undertones.
OPI appeared twice more for BCBG Max Azria Group, Inc., for MAX AZRIA on Saturday, February 13, and Hérve Léger on Tuesday, February 15. MAX AZRIA models wore Samoan Sand as well, while Hérve Léger featured the clay-hued San Tan-tonio. Additionally, OPI was part of the BCBGMAXAZRIA Runway Survival Kits, given to models during casting and to enthusiastic fans at BCBG stores in Manhattan and online.
For the second year in a row, OPI walked the Fall runway with Rebecca Taylor on Friday, February 11. With models wearing two shades from the just-launched Texas Collection by OPI, Suzi Loves Cowboys provided a rich chocolate hue for fingertips, while San Tan-tonio gave a light honey color to toes.
Charlotte Ronson also selected OPI to complement her edgy clothing, with models wearing Samoan Sand during the show on Saturday, February 12. Front-row admirers included Olivia Munn, Sophia Bush, Mena Suvari, and Kim Kardashian.
“OPI was thrilled to walk the runway with so many fabulous designers for New York Fashion Week/Fall 2011,” said Suzi Weiss-Fischmann, OPI Executive VP & Artistic Director. “As seen by the color selection and overwhelming preference for a neutral palette, nude nails will remain a huge trend throughout the rest of the year. Beige, tan, honey, chocolate, and even grey give fingertips a chic, minimalist look – matching fashions of the same hues or providing a base for brighter, patterned clothing.”
