Lewis Craig are delighted to have advised luxury beauty brand NARS Cosmetics with their recent UK Head Office relocation project, resulting in a move to 100 New Oxford Street, located in the heart of Central London.
100 New Oxford Street has recently been transformed to provide 34,000 sq ft of Grade A office space, with NARS securing some 6,000 sq ft of open plan space on the 6th floor.
Having considered several other options the premises were identified as offering the perfect solution for the company’s UK Head office requirement.
Makeup artist. Photographer. Iconoclast. François Nars is one of the most influential image-makers in the world. His rule-breaking philosophy of beauty celebrates bold originality, supporting decades of fashion world collaborations with designers such as Marc Jacobs and Karl Lagerfeld.
The brand, born of François’ fascination with colour purity, debuted with 12 original high-pigment lipsticks at Barney’s New York. Twenty years and countless collections later, NARS continues to bring high fashion, high style, and forward thinking to beauty.
It is hardly surprising that this hugely successful brand, that continues to grow from strength to strength, had by 2015 seriously outgrown their head office, resulting in a new facility being required!
Alberto De Boni, European Director of Finance and Operations, comments:
“Lewis Craig offered us invaluable support throughout our head office relocation process, guiding us carefully every step of the way, ensuring that our needs were met at all times. Their reports were concise and highly informative, enabling our UK team to effectively relay information to New York, ensuring efficiency at all times.
Their negotiating expertise, and continuing input and guidance once in solicitors hands, indeed throughout the design and fit-out stage was unparalleled. We will absolutely be utilising their services in the future”.
