WHAT: Spring 2011 Collections
WHERE: 9/11/10 at Center 548
Backstage, Shiseido’s Dick Page led the team of makeup artists to create two distinct looks for both the Boy, and Girl by Band of Outsiders models.
For the “Boy” look, most of the face was bear with the exception of Natural Finish Cream Concealer covering up any blemishes. The focus, was on the eyes. Eyes were lined with Automatic Fine Eyeliner in Black on the lower lash line, and in the lid’s crease.
For the “Girl” look, once again skin was touched up using only Natural Finish Cream Concealer. Shimmering Rouge Lipstick in Golden Dragon was applied to cheeks, temples, and the bridge of the nose with a damp sponge. Benefiance Full Correction Lip Treatment was used on eyelids. The look was finished by dabbing Shimmering Rouge Lipstick in Lounge onto the lips using the makeup artist’s fingertips.
Thickening Spray was used to prep hair, which was then pulled back into a pony tail, and woven into a thick braid. The braid was blow dried, then the pony was released and finger combed, to give hair a wavy look. Alternate looks kept the pony tail, but and left the braid undone.
Once preparations were complete, the presentation began downstairs with Boy by Band of Outsiders. Upon arriving, guests were greeted by models standing on a set of bleachers, modeling the Boy looks.
Next, Girl by Band of Outsiders “day” looks were presented in a steamy spa-like atmosphere.
THE VERDICT: Band of Outsiders Spring 2011 collection truly offers something for everyone. Both men’s classic staples, and more rustic options. From the women’s ethereal earth tone gowns, to menswear inspired women’s wear, nearly every stylistic preference is represented in this collection. I have a feeling we’ll be seeing the wooden wrap wedges and lightweight dresses of the Girl collection in particular all over NYC come spring.
