Friday September 19, 2014 – via Gesù 12

 

The new essentials of Versace Spring 2015 collection: stripped back and bold, sexy and fresh. Lines are clean, colours are strong, details are playful. A new Versace print clashes images of metal rings with the Medusa and abstracted optics. Swarovski crystal mesh dresses are youthful and strong, with straps held by utilitarian buckles.

Drawing inspiration from the 1980’s, Redken Creative Consultant Guido created a sporty-chic hairstyle for Versace’s Spring/Summer 2015 show in Milan. Using guts 10 volumizing spray-foam mousse to create height in the front and forceful 23 super strength finishing spray for the perfect amount of control and shine, Guido achieved a minimal hairstyle that made a massive statement on the runway.

“The Versace girl is a bit sporty this season, but still very modern and glamorous. I created this minimal and very natural hairstyle to enhance this feeling. I created volume in the front with guts 10, and left the back natural to get that beautiful, modern texture. Then I raked my fingers back through the hair, using forceful 23 to create those distinct lines and hold for a boyish, sporty vibe that’s still quite glamorous with the height in the front and shiny finish.” Guido, Redken Creative Consultant

Redken Products Used:
Pillow Proof Blow Dry express primer
Guts 10 root targeted volume spray foam
Forceful 23 super strength finishing spray
Shine flash 02 glistening mist

Redken Products Used for the Versace Spring 2014 Show

Create the Look:

  1. Thoroughly mist Pillow Proof Blow Dry express primer all over hair and comb through.
  2. While hair is still damp, apply guts 10 root targeted volume spray foam on roots at the crown.
  3. Blow-dry hair at the crown until it is completely dry.
  4. Spray the back of the hair with water and let dry naturally.
  1. Rake hair back with fingers to create visible lines and spray with forceful 23 super strength finishing spray to hold hair in place.
  2. Finish with a touch of shine flash 02 glistening mist all over for added shine.

Thursday September 11th, 2014 – Park Avenue Armory

The look for the show features no makeup – we only applied moisturizer. With Marc we always take it to the extreme, we’ve done bold looks in the past, but this season we wanted to make a statement by not applying anything.

This goes back to one of the looks that I’ve always loved – bare skin, nothing on the face, lips or eye, just beautiful skin. I love makeup but I also love seeing women without makeup. To me, it’s a great way to show fashion. It works so well with the clothes and the hair. Who knows, maybe next season we will go back to a full face of makeup. I love having the flexibility to do this, we are not locked into applying makeup. I like the idea that what you see is what you get. François Nars, Founder & Creative Director

Key products used to create the exclusive look:

FACE
NARSskin Luminous Moisture Cream
Stick Concealer (if needed)

LIPS
Rosebud Salve

For the fourth season in a row, Redken Creative Consultant Guido created 60 custom wigs for the highly- anticipated Marc Jacobs Spring/Summer 2015 NYFW show. Working very closely with Marc Jacobs to complete his vision for the runway, Guido drew inspiration from the 70’s and 80’s to create a fantasy on the runway.

The wigs we created are a total reflection of Marc Jacob’s style. He has a complete vision for his show, and the wigs really allowed us to bring this vision to life because they almost depersonalize the girls. We were inspired by the 70’s and 80’s and by Joey Ramone’s bowlish haircut. First, we dyed all of the wigs black and then we pre-cut them before the show so that we could custom cut them for each girl backstage to create that perfect bowl-shape with the heavy bang. Texture is also very important for this look. I sprayed fashion waves 07 on the wig when it was damp to create some chunky texture, and then used wind blown 05 to add dry, airy texture so it feels a little more graphic. In the end, the look was like an illustration that came to life. Guido, Redken Creative Consultant

Redken Products Used:

Wind blown 05 dry finishing spray
Fashion waves 07 sea salt spray
Hardwear 16 super strong sculpting gel
Control addict 28 high hold hairspray

<div class=

Create the Look:

  1. Apply hardwear 16 super strong sculpting gel to dry hair from root to ends and comb through until hairis completely saturated.
  2. Divide hair into two sections (top and bottom) in the back.
  3. Clip the bottom section down and out of the way.
  1. Using a finishing brush, start to brush the top section flat against the head, following the round of the head in one direction. Repeat with each section, making sure it’s very clean and neat-looking when finished.
  2. Blow dry hair until completely dry.
  3. Apply control addict 28 high hold hairspray to smooth any fly aways.
  4. Place wig on head.
  5. Cut the wig into a bowl-shape with a heavy bang.
  6. Mist water all over the wig until damp, and then liberally spray fashion waves 07 sea salt spray all over, scrunching into hair with fingers to create chunky texture.
  7. Allow to air dry and finish by thoroughly spraying wind blown 05 dry finishing spray all over the hair for added texture.

Wednesday September 10, 2014 – Spring Studios, New York

Michael Kors rest true to himself for Spring 2015, delivering an intemporal modern collection, inspired by the iconic American attitude of Agnes de Mille’s choregraphy and the casual elegance of Louis Dahl-Wolfe’s photographs.

“When you get dressed, it’s got to answer the questions of modern life. Can I sit? can I move? is it versatile … all of that but can it evokes a spirit? After you come out of a cold winter, I want to put something on that’s happy, with all the headlines and what’s happening in the world don’t you want to have a little charm in your life? Smile a little, have a long lunch, take a walk, have your skirt catch the breeze, I think it changes your spirit.” Michael Kors

Kors is a master when it comes to take a classic and make it terribly desirable. Knowing what women want to wear, in the consumer eye the brand is synonyme of jet set lifestyle and sportwear americana. Michael Kors is the most successful american brand right now, even making european luxury brand reevaluating their strategies. The positive attitude image might have helped but beautiful well made clothes that people want to wear is the answer. Today was no exception,  especially with these daffodils, wisteria, and geraniums that were juxtaposed on tulle dancer skirts. Graphic ginghams, stripes and plaids, every pieces seem effortless. The waist is defined, the jeans are slim and cropped, outwear is overscaled. The simplicity of these american sportswear clothes make us want to wear them off the runway. The retro artisanal satchel, the tailored corssbody and the ankle-wrapeed flat takes it all in stride.

In 1854, Louis Vuitton founded his House. In 1896 his son, Georges Vuitton, created The Monogram in honour of his late father. An icon was born.

The Monogram was revolutionary when it appeared. This most particular and personal of signatures was instantly transformed into a universal symbol of modernity in the hands of Georges Vuitton: it is one of the first exercises in elevated branding and a defining sign of a global culture to come.

In 1965 Gaston-Louis Vuitton, recounted how his father, Georges, had created the motifs on The Monogram canvas: ‘First of all, the initials of the company – LV – are interlaced in such a way as to remain perfectly legible. Then a diamond. To give a specific character to the shape, he made the sides concave with a four-petal flower in the centre. Then the extension of this flower in a positive image. Finally, a circle containing a flower with four rounded petals.

The Monogram is now recognised globally as a defining signature, both literally and metaphorically, of the House of Louis Vuitton. As it has travelled through time, certain of its features and meanings remain the same. Blurring the boundaries between craftsmanship, art and design, Louis Vuitton has repeatedly embraced the notions of innovation, collaboration and daring throughout The Monogram’s history.

It is within this context that Louis Vuitton’s ‘Celebrating Monogram’ project appears this year. It is a collection of works that shows the distinctly personal side of the Monogram; re-presenting something we think we all know in an extraordinary, individual and idiosyncratic way. Six creative iconoclasts – the best in their individual fields – who blur the lines between fashion, art, architecture and product design, have been given carte blanche to dictate and make whatever they see fit in the patterned canvas.

Echoing the special Louis Vuitton centenary collection of 1996 – where Azzedine Alaia, Manolo Blahnik, Romeo Gigli, Helmut Lang, Isaac Mizrahi, Sybilla and Vivienne Westwood contributed individual and distinct designs – for 2014’s collection, the participants have progressed even further. Here, Christian Louboutin, Cindy Sherman, Frank Gehry, Karl Lagerfeld, Marc Newson and Rei Kawakubo radically, personally and playfully realise an unparalleled collection.

In many ways it means The Monogram has come full circle: looking at its handcrafted roots once more, its direct connection to a person, its daring and genre defying audacity and, above all, its journey into the future for Louis Vuitton. This is a collection that is both universal and personal, and in the cherished traditions of the house, once again defies expectations.

Monday September 7th, 2014 – Park Avenue Armory

Tommy Hilfiger has always danced to the beat of his own drum which is why next season’s rock-n-roll inspired frocks will resonate with style-savvy fashionrati. And the theme was embedded into every single detail, from the psychedelic set, to the grass and gerbera daisy-lined runway; it truly felt as if one stepped into a Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band record cover. The designer even paid homage to the Rolling Stones by having Georgia May Jagger and Ella Richards walk the show.

Backstage, models got the star treatment (quite literally) with tattoo body art adorning their faces and calves. Before hitting the catwalk, Tommy’s bevy of starry-eyed vixens stepped into the TH branded vine booth to directly interact with fans via Twitter, giving an exclusive behind-the-scenes sneak peek.

“We have a global audience engaging in one conversation, All guests and viewers can join The Conversation over Instagram and Twitter using the dedicated hashtag #tommyspring15. Creating a truly democratic voice for the show and sharing hundreds of different perspectives from the event” – Tommy Hilfiger

With Tara Ferry and Steve Hash playing drums, models strutted through a field of flora, in full 70’s mode, wearing Hilfiger’s classic signature looks updated with a rock’n roll spirit. Georgia May Jagger opened the show wearing a sharp tailored regimental cape featuring gold stripes and buttons. Jeans and jean jackets inspired by Hilfiger‘s archival pieces are reinterpreted in a patchwork of selvedge denim. The show ended with appealing translucent washed silk chiffon dresses printed with playful tattoo graphics, commissioned by Fernando Lions.

It goes without saying that rock-n-roll is a hallmark of American culture, so it should come as no surprise that Tommy’s twisted and exuberant take on the 70’s will jive well with contemporary-conscious consumers.

Sunday September 7, 2014 – Metropolitan West 639 West 46th Street

Donatella Versace is taking playful sister line VERSUS in a new direction: working with different designers and artistic talents to produce one-off capsule collections. After Christopher Kane and J.W.Anderson, Anthony Vaccarello’s capsule collection for VERSUS is a provocative and rebellious statement and by far one of the best.

Those who love the explosive and structured sex appeal of Versace have enjoyed Sunday night’s VERSUS Spring/Summer 2015 by Anthony Vaccarello. The best part is that the collection is already available via NET-A-PORTER.COM. Almost exclusively in black and white, punctuated with touches of gold,  the show started with femme fatale dresses with provocative cuts that reveal the thighs, cleavage and precise tailoring with broad shoulders. Certainly a retro collection, but the ability of the young Belgian designer to create perfectly cut dresses made it a full success.

“I love Anthony, so authentic and young! ” said Donatella Versace, while posing with Rihanna.

Beauty wise Pat McGrath explained that the task for her and hairstylist Guido Palau, was  to “enhance” each girl’s unique, natural beauty.

Guido,  Redken Creative Consultant, enhanced each model’s natural hair texture, whether wavy or straight, using Redken’s new Wind Blown 05 dry finishing spray. While the look may not be exactly the same for each model, the naturally undone look created an overall cool, sexy feeling on the runway.

“This sense of individuality was inspired by the Versace ads from the mid-90s and how the girls were captured for who they were, not what they were made into. Each model had a very natural, undone style, but each was slightly different depending on the model’s hair type and length. I added texture and lift at the roots with a generous amount of wind blown 05, and left the part messy and natural. Then, to add a bit of modernity and richness, I lightly sprayed Diamond Oil High Shine Airy Mist all over the hair at the end to give it a nice sheen, which played up the sexiness of the collection.” Guido Palau

Create the Look:

  1. Start with dry, natural hair, and create a messy natural part.
  2. Generously spray wind blown 05 dry finishing spray all over the hair to add airy texture and weightless volume.
  3. Tousle hair with fingers to achieve an easy, undone look.
  4. Finish with a light mist of Diamond Oil High Shine Airy Mist all over to enhance the hair’s natural shine.

Sunday September 7, 2014 – 25 Broadway

Victoria Beckham is opening her first store in London – an important step that inspired and pushed her to focus on the DNA of the brand more than ever.

Exploring the essence of this identity led her to look at the brand’s signature and redefine it in a fresh interpretation that sits within the core of the Spring 2015 runway collection for the first time in many seasons.

“Informed by these new shapes was the idea of creating an eclectic uniform in the form of an exact, yet wearable wardrobe that embodies the evolution of the collection. I have pushed myself with new techniques and silhouettes that I believe give a modern sense of purpose and precision.” Victoria Beckham

It is in the spirit of this evolution that this season she designed the show shoes under her own name in the London atelier for the first time. Creating all elements of the collection under one roof enabled VB to complete and strengthen the silhouette and this has been key in her design journey.

For the makeup Pat McGrath created  a “very natural, sheer makeup” featuring a pinch of peach blush, brown shadow applied with fingers, and a bit of brown mascara.

For hair Redken Creative Consultant Guido Palau brought an easy, sophisticated feeling to the runway. Using only one key product, Redken’s new Wind Blown 05 dry finishing spray, Guido created the perfect nonchalant, natural hairstyle to complement Victoria’s modern collection.

“Victoria’s style is so modern and beautiful that I didn’t want to bring too much attention to the hair, and this natural look felt the most modern for this collection. There was a time when a blowout would have been considered a luxury, and it is very luxurious, but that kind of look on the runway can seem dated. The style at Victoria Beckham is very easy and undone, which created a more modern feeling. I let the hair dry naturally, created a messy side part with my fingers, and then used Redken’s new Wind Blown 05 dry finishing spray to texturize and lift the roots a bit. I also used a wide-barrel curling iron, taking random clumps of hair and bending them around the iron to add body where needed.” Guido, Redken Creative Consultant

For hair, Redken Creative Consultant Guido Palau brought sophistication and sportiness to the Alexander Wang runway this season, complementing the designer’s Spring/Summer 2015 collection. Putting a twist on the classic low ponytail, Guido created a modernly futuristic feeling with a very sleek, sporty-inspired pony. Using hardwear 16 super-strong sculpting gel and Diamond Oil High Shine Airy Mist, Guido changed the effect of a simple hairstyle with contrasting wet and dry textures.

“I created this sleek, sporty look by combing hardwear 16 into the hair to achieve a super-glossy, almost silicone-like, head shape, and then left the ponytail dry and natural-looking. Using a black elastic, I secured the ponytail at the base of the head, and then added a second elastic to create a thicker band for a sportier feeling. Then, I left the ponytail natural to add a little bit of richness to the hair and to create contrasting wet and dry textures. I finished the look with Diamond Oil High Shine Airy Mist for a shiny, modern finish.”

Guido Palau, Redken Creative Consultant
