KATE SPADE S/S 2014

Kate Spade S-S 2014 -036

Kate Spade’s presentations are always one of my “don’t miss” shows of fashion week. Quirky hair and makeup, spectacular nails by Deborah Lippmann, and of course, the cute, whimsical clothes and handbags are inspiring season after season.

For Spring, Creative Director Deborah Lloyd was influenced by a European Tour, and frequent Kate Spade muse the 1960’s.

The 60’s influence was visible in the unique black and white cat eye, created by JOUER’s Neil Scibelli.

To get the look:

Apply JOUER Matte Moisture Tint to face, and set with Mattifying Translucent Powder. Cheeks were dusted with Mineral Powder Blush in “Peony”. For eyes, “Praline” Powder Eyeshadow was used on lids, with a cat eye created using Liquid Shimmer Eyeliner in “Panther” and white shimmer paint. After topping eyes with false lashes, the look was completed with “Kate” Lipstick, and “Blush” Moisturizing Lip Gloss.

Once again Deborah Lippmann created a fun, original look for the show’s nails. Inspired by a cap-toe show, the tips of each nail feature a silver design, with alternating colored stripes on each model.

To get the look: Start with Gel Lab Base Coat, then two coats of white shade Psuedo Silk Kimono. The tip of each nail is then painted in the silver shade Bad Moon Rising. Finally, an accent color is added to the end of the tip in It’s Raining Men (red), Groove is in the Heart (pink), or Walking on Sunshine (yellow).

KATE SPADE F/W 2013

Not a brand to shy away from bold beauty, or overindulge in “neutrals” (one of the biggest nyfw show crimes, in my opinion!) Kate Spade is season after season, one of my favorite backstages to document.

It’s just so good to attend a show that is FUN! With equally fun hair and makeup.
