“I wanted to create a luxurious quiff,” hairstylist Sam McKnight said of pinned chignons in various stages of dishevelment, which he twisted into rolls on top of models’ heads at Fendi. “It’s a little undone; it’s soft,” he said of the masculine hairdos that took center stage.
“The makeup balances the rock ’n’ roll hair,” said Peter Philips, Chanel’s global creative director for makeup, of the pared-down Fendi face. “It’s not really about the eye or the lip, but a continuation of what we’ve being doing for the past few seasons,” referring to the healthy, peachy complexion created using Chanel’s Fresque powder blush.
“It’s not about contouring or shaping, but more about giving an outdoors look,” he added, applying the powder blush to brighten the apples of the cheeks. Matching glossy lips were smudged in Chanel’s Genie — and the look was completed with beige eye shadow applied to an eye that eschewed mascara and brows.
