First Looks


Beautiful backstage photographs of a few of the first looks from the Spring 2015 Runway show from photographer Carlotta Manaigo. I love the ethereal quality her photographs capture, the love of light, the beauty of fragility.

The Hair Force

Good hair can make or break a shoot so we love to work with the best ones available: one of our favorites is Rolando Beauchamp who created the hair for the Spring 2014 Campaign. For the “Urban Canvas” campaign I imagined a girl around town, effortlessly cool, expensive taste, but “effortless” hair for a shoot can be a difficult look to create! Here is how Rolando did it:

Manon has wavy / curly hair, he blew her hair out using the Bumble and Bumble Styling lotion and a Mason Pearson Brush, created a messy center part, used the Oribe Dry Texturing Spray and created texture with my fingers here and there and tucking some hair behind the ears, pulling some out. At the very end, Bumble and Bumble “Does it All” spray. Very important, once the texture is achieved do not brush it again, you will lose everything you just created! Cool girl/effortless style tip: If you’re putting on a coat, don’t pull out your hair —- hair tucked inside clothing is a great look!

In The Lab: Growing Crystals

Growing up in New Zealand, I learned to be very crafty because I had to: if I wanted a pair of red patent leather pumps, the only way I’d get them would be by painting one of my pair with red nail polish. I’ve always found crystals to be beautiful and almost magical and I was reading a book about mining and our head designer Kathleen came across this artist who transforms materials by growing crystals: we decided to try it with this clutch.
