HAIR-RAISING: Charlie Le Mindu’s creativity quotient keeps on rising.
The hairstylist’s racy fall-winter 2015 “haute coiffeur” collection was presented Wednesday in a cabaret format in Paris’ Crazy Horse venue. He took inspiration from the Surrealist “male gaze” artistic movement of the Twenties.
Dancers were mostly in the buff, sporting not much more than Le Mindu’s creations made of human hair. There were shrugs, ornate headpieces and tassels out of tresses, which swung dramatically throughout the performance set to Kap Bambino music. (All this gave “hair suit” a new meaning.)
Among the most dramatic looks in the show — which came in five acts divided by spectacular video clips, with the S&M vibe present throughout the display — was sported by the pole dancer. Her face was covered with an ornate, metallic mask topped by a blonde ponytail. Hair also hung from her chest.
