With a color palette that brings to fingertips the cultural, culinary, and fashion wonders of Milan, Italy, the new Muse of Milan Collection by OPI takes consumers on a journey to this valiant and passionate city.
“For more than two decades, OPI has taken women around the world with its destination-themed collections. When we first conceptualized this collection, we traveled to Milan for inspiration. We ate fresh pasta, spent hours walking the city streets, and drank Campari and orange juice while checking out the incredible street style. We had no idea the hardships and changes Milan would soon be facing due to the global pandemic,” explains OPI Co-Founder and Brand Ambassador Suzi Weiss-Fischmann. “ Through this collection, we proudly support and honor Milan, a magical city that showed its loving spirit even at the height of the coronavirus outbreak.”
Featuring 12 colors in four different formulas, modern variations of vintage-inspired hues of warm taupe, burnt orange, terracotta, and dark teal give nails a retro feel, while classic denim blues are reinvented with shades ranging from icy blue to peacock blue. Milan’s façade of industrial gray and shiny steel comes together to inspire gunmetal hues both with and without shimmer. Floral tones in dusky, rich variations of iris, lilac, heather, and mulberry finish off this fashion-forward collection.
“We believe in the transformative power of color,” remarks OPI Global Director of Color Collections Jill Bartoshevich. “ This collection offers a palette that’s fresh, romantic, and trendsetting -- bringing to life Milan’s worldly energy and celebrating such a beautiful city and culture.”
The 12 Muse of Milan Collection shades will be available in GelColor, Infinite Shine, Nail Lacquer and Powder Perfection* (select shades) formulas, including:
