LONDON — Wendy Rowe's makeup inspiration for Burberry Prorsum's English rose-themed show was petal pink.
"Pink can be quite a difficult color to wear," she noted. But just as the fashion collection played the field with traditional fabrics, Rowe took classic pink and made it "modern, vibrant and fresh."
She used Burberry’s Warm Glow foundation as a base and contoured models’ features with the brand’s new blush in the Earthy hue. Eschewing mascara, models’ eyes were simply colored with Burberry’s spring-summer 2014 Rose Pink Palette and their lips in the nude-toned Trench Kiss.
Trish Lomax painted models’ nails in one of six limited-edition shades — including Rose Pink and Sage Green, which were chosen to match Burberry’s bags. The nail polishes were released online as soon as the show ended today.
"We took inspiration from the English rose and made her cooler and more modern — English rose gone a little bit wrong," continued hairstylist Neil Moodie.
He described the look as “mussed up, like a two day-old blow-dry” and explained: "We didn't want it to be too perfect." The key, added Moodie, was to create an “anti-style” that people can execute themselves.

For @monsemaison’s pre-fall 2018 collection, Fernando Garcia and Laura Kim honed in on the brand’s many signatures — men’s wear, which was tweaked and feminized through deconstruction, proportion play and lots of bare shoulders. See the rest of the photos on WWD.com #wwdfashion (📷: George Chinese)

@pantone announced their Color of the Year 2018: Ultra Violet. Nearly 20 months after the musician Prince’s death, fashion is having a purple moment. Varying shades of purple appeared on spring or fall runways, from @christopherkane to @calvinklein. @gucci’s Alessandro Michele bathed his fall runway in ultra violet-colored light at one point. Pantone 18-3838 is meant to “push the boundaries of what inspires us to look upward and outward to the future.” #wwdnews #wwdfashion (📷: @kukukuba)
