Fashion designer Giambattista Valli turns to the beauty industry for his latest collaboration with MAC. The range of 5 lipsticks and a pearlized, clear gloss will dress women’s lips in blossoming shades inspired by fabric color swatches from dresses of past collections. The botanical images, shot by Sølve Sundsbø, features a peony-pink Maja Salamon amongst colorful, floral foliage that hints at its aromatic bouquet.
The collection will be available in-store from July 9, 2015 through August 6, 2015.
All eyes are on Men’s fashion these days and London Collections Men S/S 16 winds down today after its four day span. Melodie Jeng was there for models.com to capture all the off-duty lads between shows. Here’s who she spotted:
Summer humidity played no role in this hair and beauty story photographed by Mark Rabadan with a sweeping hairdo by Phillipe Tholimet. The contouring lines of wet hair and liberal application of moisture define model Lisa Verberght’s look. “Raw beauty” was the focus for the team. Even though the flowing hair is by meticulous design, Mark emphasized keeping it real. Tholimet says, “I went with my instinct,” to shape the strands for each shot.
For Sophie Theallet‘s latest offering for cruise, she focused on the indomitable power of the woman. Her influence for the season came from “women of every culture. As a woman we have all kinds of different bodies and our inspiration came from a diverse range of women like Romy Schneider, Rossy de Palma, Billie Holiday, Beyonce.” The dynamic women from old and new all had a common thread, sensuality. Stylist Jenke Tailly brushed on the underlying carnality of their influences, “all these women that exude the power through their femininity and sexuality and these clothes are made for a woman that really enjoys being a woman. Truly excepting the curves that she has but the pieces aren’t explicit. There are looks that are completely covered but perfectly cut so the body still shines through.” And what did show closer and choreographer of Robots, Blanca Li, have to say about the collection? “These are clothes for real women — it’s not just something you see on models that is beautiful but I can’t wear it. It makes you feel good about yourself and they instantly become part of you. It’s almost like your body adapts to it whether big, small, tall or short. I would love to run in the street and dance in this forever!”
