With the exception of a few well-placed and wild hair accessories, this season saw a shift to styles that focused on a chic, paired down aesthetic. Ponytails were the dominant style, variations on the theme cropped up everywhere but major influence was also taken from the 60s, fashions new favourite decade.More
It really wasn’t a show if a ponytail didn’t feature, so omnipresent were they this season. Done several ways but always to beautiful effect our favourites were the backcombed effortless versions at Celine, the wispy girly offerings at Valentino and the taut, slick numbers at Louis Vuitton. ‘Inject style nuances like side partings and tendrils around the ear to ensure it adds character’ said Guido at Celine.
60s sex appeal was evident in many of the undone up-dos on this season’s catwalks. At Bottega Veneta and Jean Paul Gaultier they were frothy and aerated but with an edge of dishevelment, ‘texture is key to these looks’ said Guido, ‘keep them imperfect and with a dry, raw texture to ensure they look modern’.
