PARIS — “It feels very organic, quite ladylike, but girly at the same time,” Eugene Souleiman said of the updos he created at Rochas. They were twisted up into rolls at the sides of models’ heads save for a few strands pulled out in order for the look not to be “too precious.”
He dressed up the coifs with gold-colored combs scattered “where I feel like it” throughout hair. “The more the better,” he said. “[It’s] like a romantic look, which has fallen apart, but which someone tried to fix with a few clips.”
Some models also sported scarves with colorful motifs on their heads.
Meanwhile, makeup artist Lucia Pieroni evoked Scandinavian folklore and the aurora borealis by using MAC Chromagraphic Marine Ultra pencil and vivid blue eye shadow galore on fair-skinned models.
“We didn’t want it to look like a [Johannes] Vermeer painting either. It’s like the Northern Lights, which illuminate the blue sky,” said Pieroni.
