Neiman Marcus fashion director Ken Downing is set to launch a beauty collaboration with cosmetics company Le Metier de Beaute. What? Yes. Fashionista reports: "His first kollection–yes, he adopted the Kardashian style of substituting K’s for C’s–is called Ken’s Korals and konsists of Ken’s Kissable Koral (a lipstick) and and Ken’s Kontagious Koral (nail lacquer). They’re available now at Neiman Marcus, and they retail for $32 and $18, respectively. The collection will grow a bit in the fall, consisting of three lip shades and three nails shades, in dark bordeaux and purples. He’s hoping to add eye shadows for spring." [Fashionista]
