JONATHAN SIMKHAI S/S 2019

Jonathan Simkhai Spring 2019

For Spring 2019, Jonathan Simkhai went back to his roots, in the form of an intimate presentation, vs. a runway show. As one of my favorite homegrown NYC (now LA!) designers, I’ve been following his career since I attended his very first show. So it’s amazing to see how far he’s come, and how his design work has grown.

Backstage, things were as beautiful as ever. Grace Lee for Maybelline NY created a fresh faced look, with a focus on wine stained lips.

To get the look, Lee applied Composer to the center of model’s lips, then quickly used BabyLips to smudge and blend it outward, before the matte lipstick dried.

Odile Gilbert for TRESemmé created a 1960’s inspired look with sleek, straight hair, accented by 2 small braids (one on each side). To complete the style, the ends of the braids were finished off with small wooden beads.

The step by step to get the look: Start by washing hair with TRESemmé Keratin Smooth Shampoo and Conditioner to create a frizz-free foundation. Part hair in the centre. Spray TRESemmé Repair & Protect Pre-Styling Spray to prevent damage and then blow dry hair with a paddle brush. Use hair straighteners to achieve a sleek and smooth finish. Spray generously with TRESemme Dry Shampoo for texture. Then, take a small section of hair from either side, tightly plait and fasten with a hair tie. Add wooden beads for additional 60’s-style chic. Finish the look with TRES TWO Micro Mist Hair Spray to keep the look in place without creating stiffness.

For the final beauty touch, Côte toxin free nail polish was used to accentuate model’s nails in a nice, soft neutral shade.

The collection featured softer looks, and represented a departure form-fitting gowns Simkhai is known for. While it might represent a change– it was a welcome one. The collection was beautiful, hippie dreamware any woman would want to own.
