Hairstylist Eugene Souleiman called coifs he created for Yohji Yamamoto’s spring runway “very old and very young.”
On each model’s head were childlike ponytails and braids with florescent-colored strings running through them. At the front, hair was whitened, reminiscent of older women after taking out rollers — or Marie Antoinette, he said.
“They’re not meant to match; they are meant to look completely contradictory and crazy,” continued Souleiman.
When it came to makeup, some of the models got an evening look and the others, a day look.
“One has a dark eyebrow and one has a white eyebrow,” explained makeup artist Pat McGrath, adding everyone’s skin was given a tanned appearance.
