NEW SEASON TRENDS


GET YOUR PALETTE OUT!

SPRING IS AROUND THE CORNER , THE CITY SMELLS OF FLOWERS, THE SUN IS WARMING THE STREETS UP AND ALL WE WANT IS TO GET RID OF  WINTERY CLOTHES AND ENJOYING THE NEW SEASON.

THE CATWALK SHOWS FOR SS 2012 ARE FILLED WITH COLORFUL COLLECTIONS: 
FROM DELICATE PASTEL ICE CREAM PALETTES TO THE VIBRANT SHADES OF AN IMAGINARY MARINE WORLD-LIKE.

FOR THE LAST SEASONS FASHION HAS BEEN OFFERING AN EXPLOSION OF FUN AND COLORS, ALMOST LIKE A REACTION TOWARDS THE DEPRESSING ECONOMIC SITUATION WHICH WE'RE GOING THROUGH.

IT ALREADY HAPPENED IN THE PAST..THINK OF 2ND WORLD WAR TIME.
EVERY TYPE OF CLOTH WAS SHORT WORLDWIDE SO MATERIAL WAS SEVERELY RATIONED.
WOMEN HAD TO GIVE UP ON EXTRA CLOTHES AND WERE ONLY ALLOWED TO BUY ESSENTIALS.
EVEN STOCKINGS WERE FORBIDDEN. INSTEAD THEY WOULD COLOUR THE SKIN WITH GRAVY BROWNING AND DRAW A LINE ON THE BACK OF THE LEGS.
MAX FACTOR USED TO VISIT MUNITIONS FACTORIES AND HAND OUT LIPSTICKS AND THE NEW PANCAKE TO KEEP THEIR MORALE UP.

SO IF FOR SS 12 THE STARS WERE ART DECO, ICE CREAM SHADES, MERMAID-LIKE PATTERNS FOR THE FABRICS, THE CHEERING UP FACTOR ALSO CAME FROM HAIR MAKE UP AND NAILS.

GLITTERAMA WAS THE CHOICE OF D-SQUARED AND ASHIS, WHO ADDED TO THEIR SHOWS A FESTIVAL ATMOSPHERE (THINK GLANSTONBURY, BESTIVAL..)





NARCISO RODRIGUEZ AND THAKOON KEPT THE MAKE-UP QUITE NATURAL BUT WENT COLORAMA ON THE HAIR.







MAKE UP ARTIST SUPREME CHARLOTTE TILBURY DEFINES “AN ORCHID SPROUTING FROM THE MOUTH” THE LIPS LOOK CREATED FOR PRABAL GURUNG, WHILE MARY KATRANTZOU AND STEFFIE CHRISTIAENS PREFER OCEAN TINTS LIKE COLD BLUE AND AQUA.






GOLD AND SILVER ARE EVERGREEN: ON THE EYES GOLD LEAVES FOR FENDI AND SILVER PAINTING FOR 3.1 PHILLIP LIM.





AND MORE...WHITE AND PEACHY PAINTED EYEBROWS AT THE FUJIWARA PRESENTATION, ORANGE LIPS COMBINED WITH BLEACHED EYEBROWS AT RICK OWENS AND LAST BUT NOT LEAST AN ENTIRE SPLASH OF PIGMENTS WAS THE PICK OF VIVIENNE WESTWOOD FOR HER RED LABEL COLLECTION.





THE RUNWAYS SHOWS ARE A SPECTACULAR WAY OF USING INCREDIBLE MATERIALS, FABRICS, MAKE UP, ACCESSORIES TO INSPIRE AND EXCITE PEOPLE, GIVE IDEAS AND DREAM.

WE CAN USE ALL THIS SUGGESTIONS AND CUSTOMIZE THEM ACCORDING TO OUR NEEDS, STYLE, PERSONALITY, IN A MORE CONVENTIONAL WAY IF NECESSARY.

SO IF YOU FEEL LIKE PLAYING THESE ARE SOME OF THE BRANDS THAT OFFER A MASSIVE SELECTION OF COLORS AND TEXTURE FOR MAKEUP AND NAILS:
MAC COSMETICS, INGLOT COSMETICS, SHU UEMURA, ILLAMASQUA, MAKE UP FOREVER, KRYOLAN, BARRY M, DANIEL SANDLER COSMETICS.

FOR HAIR COLORING THE BEST AND SAFEST THING TO DO IS TO CONSULT YOUR HAIRDRESSER OR COLORIST, WHILE IF YOU WANT ONLY A TEMPORARY RESULT YOU CAN FIND AT KRYOLAN PROFESSIONAL COLORED HAIR SPRAY, OR THE NUTRI COLOR CREME BY REVLON IN SEVERAL FUNKY SHADES.
