Butter London AW/2010 – OMG Look! It’s Marrow!

Posted by Lipglossiping On July - 13 - 2010

I’m so freaking excited to see Marrow put in an appearance!  It was custom mixed for Vena Cava back in February and here it is, hitting the main stage!

Four striking new shades to challenge and tempt our purses, a real mix with something to please everyone.

About the AW/2010 collection:

“Buzzwords in nail trend for Fall 2010 are texture, depth, and layering, says Creme. “At Alexander Wang we created a textured beige nail that was modern and sophisticated. Then the press went wild when I custom mixed Marrow at Vena Cava.  It’s a deep, murky purple that suits any skin tone.”

Of the rest of the collection Creme says, “I’ve had the idea for Bumster for ages. It’s an amazing twist on a neutral colour, and this ochre yellow looks INCREDIBLE on!” And finally, “Victoriana” is a deep, twinkling vintage blue that reminds me of all the wonderful historical interiors in London.  I’m having a nostalgic moment!”

.

All Hail McQueen – An opaque, holographic beige.

Bumster – An opaque, ochre yellow.

Marrow – A dark, flat, murky & mysterious purple.

Victoriana – A textured, twinkling vintage blue.

.

Ugh… Frankly, I’m drooling at the description of All Hail McQueen too… this collection is gonna be a sell out.  I can see Bumster looking particularly amazing on dark skin tones and twinkling vintage blue…. vintage blue? *dies*.

    I used to have a colour which looks like Bumster, it was the best gold I had ever used, I think it was by 17..applied like satin.

    I think I’d layer All Hai McQueen over Bumster if it was sheer enough.

    And am I the only one giggling at the word Bumster?

    McQueen and V for me. Bumster too if it applies well. I love Butter London. Rosie Lee is an all-time fave.

    Wow! Thank You so much for this great piece and hilarious comments! BUMSTER DEFINITION: Designed by Alexander McQueen in 1996, these perilously low-slung trousers shocked the fashion world, by exposing one’s bum crack.
