Redken has released details of the hairstyles at Paris Fashion Week that it contributed to, namely the autumn–winter 2015–16 collections of Christian Dior and Balenciaga.
   Guido, its global creative director, gave Christian Dior a science fiction-inspired ponytail look. In a release, Guido said, ‘I created this very long, asymmetrical side ponytail at Christian Dior this season, but it’s not your standard, fun, side pony. There’s something sinister and almost strange about it. It’s sophisticated, but very sci-fi and has somewhat of a child-like quality. First, I prepped and blow dried the hair with Redken’s Satinwear 02 Prepping Blow Dry Lotion, so it’s super-straight and smooth. Then, I created a deep, exaggerated side part and gathered the hair into this smooth, low side ponytail, getting a
clean finish with Redken’s Fashion Work 12 hairspray. It has a strange sense to it because it’s so asymmetrical and has such extreme length. It’s really a continuation of the woman we’ve been seeing this season, who is more done with a very modern, futuristic feeling.’
   For Balenciaga, ‘At Balenciaga, I created this very chic, sculpted chignon on the top of the crown that really accentuates the long neck and gives you a beautiful, elegant silhouette. It’s kind of futuristic-feeling in the way it’s moulded to the head, but it’s still very polished and stylized, which makes the style look very new to the eye again. I used Redken’s Guts 10 to blow dry the hair straight, pulled it up into a high ponytail right on the crown and then moulded it into a flat chignon with Redken’s Forceful 23 Super Strength hair spray. I left out two pieces of hair on either side of the head to create the illusion of little sideburns. Though the shape is based on something classic, the shiny, lacquer-like finish gives it a new, modern feeling,’ said Guido.
   Lola Cristall’s fashion week summary will be published online shortly.

The look at Christian Dior

1. After shampooing, apply a nickel-size amount of Redken Extreme Length Primer (NZ$35, available in New Zealand from April 2015) to wet hair and rinse out.
2. Brush Redken Extreme Length Sealer (NZ$33, from April) on damp hair from mid-lengths to ends.
3. Spray Redken Pillow Proof Express Primer (NZ$36) all over damp hair.
4. Apply a nickel-size amount of Redken Satinwear 02 Prepping Blow Dry Lotion (NZ$36) to damp hair, working into the hair from roots to ends.
5. Use a comb to create a deep side part and blow-dry smooth using a round brush.
6. Gather hair into a low side ponytail, ensuring the sides are super smooth, and secure with an elastic.
7. Take a small section of hair from the ponytail and wrap it around the elastic to hide it.
8. Spray Redken Fashion Work 12 (NZ$36) versatile working spray all over to get a smooth, clean finish.

The look at Balenciaga

1. Spray Redken Pillow Proof Express Primer (NZ$36) all over damp hair and comb through.
2. Apply a quarter-size amount of Redken Guts 10 volumizing spray-foam mousse (NZ$38) to damp hair, working into the hair from roots to ends.
3. Blow-dry hair straight using a flat brush.
4. Gather hair into a high ponytail, leaving two small pieces out on each side, and secure with an elastic at the crown of the head.
5. Twist ponytail into a wide, flat chignon that’s moulded to the head, and secure with U-shaped pins.
6. Thoroughly spray Redken Forceful 23 Super Strength Hairspray (NZ$36) and Redken Shine Flash 02 (NZ$38) for a lacquer-like finish.
7. Flat iron the two small pieces of hair on each side of the head to create the illusion of sideburns.

The Victoria & Albert Museum’s Alexander McQueen: Savage Beauty exhibition has proven to be one of its most popular, with 70,000 tickets sold two days before it opened to the public.
   The retrospective has 66 additional garments that were not seen in the earlier exhibition at the Metropolitan Museum of Art, and has an extra third more space.
   The opening on Thursday night saw David and Victoria Beckham (video below), Kate Moss and Jamie Hince, Salma Hayek and François Pinault, Naomi Campbell, Erin O’Connor, Colin Farrell, Poppy Delevingne, Eva Herzigova and FKA Twigs attend.
   Victoria Beckham wore a black strapless gown from her own collection at the V&A gala. Moss wore a design from the pre-autumn 2015 collection from the Alexander McQueen label, while Campbell donned a design from McQueen’s spring–summer 2007 collection.
   Moss herself appears in holographic form in the exhibition.
   For those who cannot get there in person, Tinie Tempah offers a private view on the BBC’s Iplayer, with a personal tour online on March 14, at 9 p.m.
   McQueen committed suicide in 2010 on the eve of his mother’s funeral.
   The exhibition, in partnership with Swarovski and others, runs from March 14 to August 2, with admission at ÂŁ16.

Ben Stiller and Owen Wilson, playing Derek Zoolander and Hansel from their roles in the 2001 hit film Zoolander, appeared to spontaneous applause at Paris Fashion Week, where Paris editor Lola Cristall is compiling her full report.
   The pair appeared on the catwalk at the Valentino ready-to-wear autumn–winter 2015–16 show, and posed with their “blue steel” looks—a term popularized by the movie about the fictional male model, Derek Zoolander.
   Stiller wrote and directed the original film, and it remains well known within the fashion industry.
   A sequel will be released on February 12, 2016.
   Stiller and Wilson posed with Vogue editor-in-chief Anna Wintour backstage.

Day five of Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week New York was the biggest day of the week, as we showcase videos from the fall–winter 2015–16 collections below from Parkchoonmoo, Carolina Herrera, La Petite Robe, Angel Sanchez, Dennis Basso, Pamella Roland, Reem Acra, Prabal Gurung, Vivienne Tam, Libertine, Badgley Mischka, J. Crew, Lela Rose, Naeem Khan, Michael Costello, and Skingraft. Taoray Wang, Oudifu and Georgine appear on our pages for the first time.
   Carolina Herrera showed an aquatic-themed collection with wool and organza, with blues and greys. Chiara Boni’s La Petite Robe got us into the Italian mood with classic songs played as the audience arrived, and through the show itself, with ‘VolarĂ©’ and ‘’O Sole Mio’, displaying a creative use of stretch jersey and sheer fabrics. Reem Acra went romantic with embellishments, layers and lace, with blacks, reds and golds; Vivienne Tam also used lace to good effect with her collection, along with rich, floral patterns evoking chinoiserie and Victorian costume.
   Taoray Wang, helming a label that first appeared for the spring–summer 2015 catwalks, was a pleasant surprise, with her sense of drama and volume: statement coats, big collars, turtle necks, dotted prints and angular shapes made us sit up and notice, and we believe she’s a label to watch out for. This was a classic winter collection that we believe will hit the mark well when autumn hits the US. Georgine used plenty of metallic, shimmering fabrics as it took us back to the second half of the 1970s.
   A more comprehensive report led by Paris editor Lola Cristall will appear in an upcoming issue of Lucire.

A hair-drier that lets you get more control: top tips using the new GHD Aura

Lucire staff/23.58

Pin It



The GHD Aura is the latest professional hair-drier, with the soft of innovation that we have come to expect from the British company.
   If you’re thinking a hair-drier is just a hair-drier, think again. GHD’s Aura has two patented technologies, called Cool-Wall and Laminair, where you can direct the air flow for greater precision and control.
   Laminair ensures that the hair is more evenly heated at the same temperature, aiding styling and leaving hair smoother and shinier. It also helps align hair in a single direction. Cool-Wall creates a ring of cool air around the hot air, so the casing and nozzle remain cool—allowing you to get the drier closer to the scalp for more volume and root lift.
   It’s received award-winning hairdresser Sara Allsop’s endorsement, as she uses the Aura at her Auckland salon, Dharma. Allsop says the GHD Aura is quieter and more powerful.
   GHD has released two DIY videos showing techniques you can employ to get your hair smooth and polished, or extra, glossy volume.
   Retail price in New Zealand is NZ$300. For stockists in New Zealand, call 0800 880-209 or visit www.ghdhair.com/nz.

Noon by Noor’s fall–winter 2015 collection at Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week New York delivered a stunning display of clean forms and exquisitely shaped silhouettes. Composed in a dark palette featuring monochromatic textures and materials with delicate pops of gold, silver, purple and sparkling embellishments, this latest line is a testament to creativity and coherence.
   Son Jung Wan divulges into a realm of purple, blue, grey, gold and red to deliver a spectacular range of looks featuring glistening gowns, fur-embellished sleeves, treated metallic fabrics and skilfully structured jackets. Each piece makes a statement that dares to be different and each look perpetuates an individuality stemming from thematic inspiration.
   David Tlale’s collection for New York Fashion Week is absolutely mesmerizing with soft forms and earthy tones. The palette resonates with deep grey, light browns, soft creams and gold in contrast with the sultry flow of the fabrics and the fluid compositions of the designs.
   Ranfan demonstrates that orange is definitely the new black with a vibrant collection of rich orange, yellow, red and pinks offset with cool hues of grey, blue, white and black compositions. Geometric floral prints, fur and shimmering fabrics are featured throughout this eclectic line conveying a strong ethereal presence in each look.
   The Custo Barcelona collection, Shake Before Use, composed a myriad of their signature intricate detailing through designs, patterns, forms and textures across their collection. A carefully articulated blend of plaid, tweed, fur, metallic, geometric graphics and many more styles clash together in effortless unity.—Eleanor Wright

Paris editor Lola Cristall will lead our Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week New York coverage for fall–winter 2015–16. In the meantime, here is a selection of videos from the first two days of the event.
   Our expandable live player can be found on our home page, and below.
   The words divine, graceful and dream-like do not begin to describe the glamorous wonderland that Tadashi Shoji’s collection belong in. From everyday pieces to evening gowns every look emerges with timeless tranquility and ethereal elegance. In black and white, purple and green, tulle or silk, embellished or translucent each piece expresses a unity between art and femininity through minimalist detail and flawless silhouettes.
   BCBG Max Azria, always a favourite of ours each New York Fashion Week, showed a collection with wonderful statement patchwork coats, along with romantic dresses, with details (including the leather trim) and prints inspired by beading and handcrafts.
   Rebecca Minkoff channelled a 1970s vibe with a collection inspired by Patti Smith, with fringe (of all lengths), leather, suede, wool, and knee-high boots, all while managing to look light, thanks to the mixture of fabrics and decent styling. We loved the jackets and vests, neatly layered, as well as the long Sherpa coats. Blacks, whites and browns all made appearances, the last colour reminding us how in that decade, brown could be made to look fashionable—and Minkoff did just that with her boho chic fall collection.—Eleanor Wright, with Lucire staff
