CND, the global leader in professional nail care, showcased a dreamy water-inspired nail design Sunday night at Opening Ceremony’s Spring/Summer 2015 Fashion Show at the Metropolitan Opera House in New York City. The unique show was a hybrid fashion experience – equal parts runway show and theatrical play – that spoke to the simplicity of adolescent dreams and innocence. With architectural silhouettes and water prints composed of typewriter copy, the clothing explored the idea of new vs. old technology, while the nails completed the story with lush, saturated color and references to flowing water.
“The nails that CND designed, in collaboration with Naomi Yasuda, for us this season were the perfect finishing touch to our overall story,” said Opening Ceremony designer Humberto Leon. “We wanted this show to transport the audience to that moment when you’re lying by the pool staring at the sun and you fade into a half-sleep fantasy world where everything becomes blurry and dreamlike.”
“We chose to partner with Opening Ceremony this season because we love their unconventional and experimental approach to fashion,” said Arnold. “Carol and Humberto touch a global community and are making high fashion accessible to the masses. This speaks to the core of what CND is all about! With nail design, you can elevate your look with the stroke of a brush – and we empower women around the world to embrace nails as their ultimate fashion accessory.”
