Hair on top of the head was slicked back:

The bottom section of hair was left loose, and held in place by a horizontal strip of hair, woven across the width:

The concept was inspired by the woven head pieces Jeremy created for some of his models:

Hung Vanngo for MAC led the team of make up artists, who left faces fresh, with subtle splashes of color on eyes and lips. Powder was dusted on the face. Eyes were brushed with gray shadow, but remained free of eye liner or mascara. Orange lipstick, complimenting the colors in the collection, was used on the lips.

Once the show was ready to start, I quickly ran out to the media riser to snag a spot.

For Spring, Jeremy decided to forgo the his usual prints for solid blocks of color.

VERDICT: I found Jeremy’s creative mix of materials intriguing. Many of the looks had hints of a minimalist origin, but were made more interesting by being crafted with unusual fabrics like leather, and sheer materials. Traditional silhouettes slightly altered kept things current.
