Dark times, dark hues.
On the runways we spotted creations, make-up and hairstyle choises reflecting our challenging contemporaneity and using dark colors to emphasize the message, sometimes in a very theatrical way.
Early XX century references on Ann Demelemeester Fall 17 runway in Paris. A black, purple, grey color palette: pale faces and a focus on the dark lips.
Elaborated and complex: the theatrical Thom Browne Fall 17 collection shown in New York mixed playful accessories (penguin shape bags, smoking like high boots) with a dark colors palette for the fake make up. Applications on the eyebrows, on the lips and hair extentions.
Katsuya Kamo and Inge Grognard are the two names behind the beauty looks of Haider Ackermann Fall 17 collection. A boyish short haircut à la Jeanne D’Arc. Clean faces and brushed eyebrows completed the make up.
