Moschino is definitely one of those fashion houses that have no problem taking a risks to make a statement. Each season they deliver a treat with their Runway shows taking the unthinkable and turn them into wearable art fusing architecture and engineering making it parallel with Art and ultimately turning it into Fashion. This Season the house took notes from the Legendary Artist Picasso and his extra-ordinary way of making real-life an art.
What stood out mot peculiarly was the beauty on the Runway. The hair, which was done by Julien d’Ys, was a colorful treat of poise and chic class. Julien d’Ys is a legendary hair artist behind some of the most iconic hair moments of past and present, and whom is also a master of painting, sculpting, and drawing, which was the focus on the prizes of Supermodels that went down the Moschino Runway.
“Muses inspire artists and artists inspire the world,” read the show notes of designer Jeremy Scott. “We’re completely in the world of Picasso,” said d’Ys, “I’m a painter, I’m an artist, and I knew I was the right person to do this.” The show drew from Picassos native in Spain so d’Ys continued the fantasy with a classic style which “Every woman looks beautiful with this style—it’s very strong,” explained d’Ys of the look. The women bared a style that began with a crisp part center part, pulled back very clean and sleekly twisted into a voluminous know at the base of the neck. Using the women as literal subjects of art, he enhanced the styles with structured strokes of paint in shades of pink, red, blue, yellow, and green down the hair. To compliment the avant gardé hair-art styling, makeup artist Kabuki envisioned to “evoke Picasso, but in a minimalistic way” and went for a neon red lip, extended the eyeliner outlined into a sculpted cat-eye with extended wings finishing with a toned pout on the cheeks – completely combining the etiquette of Picassos Spain to the realism of Milan.
