With charmingly chic devotees like Scarlett Johansson, Claire Danes, Ginnifer Goodwin, and even the fashion-foward FLOTUS herself, Michelle Obama, designer Peter Som is seriously sought after for his elegant yet modern couture concepts. “A graduate of the Parsons School of Design,” according to a HuffPost Style profile, “His signature look is that of polished uptown sophistication with just the right dose of modernity and quirk.”
For New York Fashion Week 2013, he copped a collab with Cleveland luxury lacquer company Zoya. Their web page gushes, “Zoya Nail Polish was honored to work with Peter Som to create three custom nail polish shades to compliment his Spring/Summer 2013 collection. The featured nail look for the show was a chic and edgy take on color blocking – a French manicure fit for women on the verge!”
To compliment his polished runway looks for Spring/Summer 2013, Som’s Zoya nail color trio is edgy but classic. Jacqueline is a naughty-but-nice opaque nude cream, while Neely is a crisp and creamy mint. Sharon [pictured] is sweet creamsicle orange that was sold out, then reintroduced as a special edition for a limited time. The fresh French manicure Som showed off on his models used the pale sea foam shade Neely as a base, with a pop of audacious apricot Sharon on the tips.
In addition to being a famously female-fronted company, Zoya’s durable coat and dynamic colors are five-free: formulated without toxic ingredients such as toluene, camphor, formaldehyde, formaldehyde resin, and DBP (dibutyl phthalate).
