DESIGUAL definitely wins the award for funkiest show of the season. With “Japanese Street Fashion” inspired hair, collaged blue jean nails, and an on trend coral lip, the backstage beauty for the SS16 show stood out amongst the straight hair, and neutral beauty looks commonly found among the rest.
Edward Lampley for amika created the two fun, braided hair styles for the show.
One, a more traditional corn row style, and a second winding zig-zag braid style, were distributed amongst the models.
Long one of my favorite young fashion designers, Katie Gallagher is also one of the most creative minds in the NYC fashion world. Season after season, every single detail of her collections conspires to create not just a clothing collection, but an entire new conceptual “world” inspired by her current theme.
For Fall, the collection was inspired by synesthesia, “a neurological phenomenon in which stimulation of one sensory or cognitive pathway leads to automatic, involuntary experiences in a second sensory or cognitive pathway.”
Clothing wise, this translated to colorblocking, structured pants, and slinky slip dresses. Many of which were topped off with witch-like hoods on the models’ heads.
//As is tradition at Katie’s shows, the hair and makeup complimented the theme perfectly. MAC Director of Makeup Artistry Romero Jennings (a frequent Katie Gallagher collaborator) created a striking red lip that matched the corresponding red pieces in the collection .
