“The collection is inspired by the disco era,” said Didier Malige, lead hairstylist for René Furterer. “One of my references was Studio 54.”
Styling the models’ hair with the brand’s Volumea products, Malige added extensions to models’ heads for volume. The hair was then woven through Japanese straight pins using a figure-eight motion. Once tightly wound, a flat iron was run on top of each pin, molding the hair to its woven position. Finally, after it had cooled, the pins were removed. “So that it’s not too high, we’re going to brush it,” said Malige, who gently put the finishing touch on the Seventies-inspired look.
Working with OPI, Jaqueleen Larson used two coats of You Callin’ Me a Liar from OPI’s New York City Ballet Soft Shades Collection. “There is a lot going on with the hair, so we’re keeping the nails simple. Pretty, sleek, and simple,” said Larson. “No art. Very fresh and very clean. Michelle Pfeiffer in the Eighties was the inspiration. A city girl, downtown, fashion-forward.” To finish the look, she applied one layer of top coat and a quick spray of Rapid Dry.
For makeup, the team working on behalf of lead artist Pat McGrath created a more simple look that balanced out the complex and intricate hairdo. Although she was too busy to comment, faces were simple. The cheeks had a peachy glow to them and lips were tinted a strawberry pink. A dusty coral shadow was swept across each eyelid and was also used under the eye. The look was finished with black mascara.

For the holidays, @Burberry partnered with 20-year-old artist @blondeymccoy on a series of three outdoor murals in downtown Manhattan. The murals are McCoy’s interpretation of a Christmas eve party, the idea of charity and the spirit of family. His third mural, pictured here, is the most personal. The image depicts McCoy’s grandparents and father in London’s Trafalgar Square in the Seventies. “My work often features lots of sentimental objects.” #wwdeye

In a partnership between the @metopera and the @englishnationalopera, “Marnie” was born. The opera, with costumes sponsored by @mrporterlive, is an adaptation of the 1961 thriller by Winston Graham. Arianne Phillips, who created the costumes, is no rookie: She’s styled Madonna for her tours and created costumes for a myriad of films in the past. Read WWD’s interview with Phillips, where she talks about her inspiration for the opera’s costumes on WWD.com #wwdfashion
@barneysnyc took a different approach to their holiday windows this year. Instead of Christmas decor, Barneys tapped @thehaasbrothers to tell a story of positivity, gratitude and inclusivity via heartwarming silliness and humor. “It’s about kids and it’s about coming together and being family and loving each other,” said Simon Haas. #wwdfashion (📷: @joshuascottphoto)
