Although the world of fashion is often considered fickle, there are those whose talents and vision are substantial enough to exempt them from its whims. Estetica was backstage the Libertine show with Nick Irwin and the TIGI Creative Team…
Libertine is a brand that launched in 2000 by Johnson Hartig. His expression through Libertine led him to great success, revolutionizing the way we think of graphics, deconstruction of the classic, and recycled clothing. Estetica has all the details on the hair looks created for the Libertine show created for this NYFW Spring and Summer collection!
Libertine’s Spring/Summer 2015 collection is dually inspired by ‘London girls from the dirty sixties’ and the ‘90’s raver.’ The SS15 Libertine girl is always game for a fun night out on the town, and regularly dons ‘last night’s’ bright and flashy (and beaded!) garb in her daily fashion. Inspired by this London Lady who he knows so well, Catwalk® by TIGI® Global Creative Director Nick Irwin has developed an effortless, textured hair look that speaks perfectly to Libertine’s party girl.
“This season we’re doing a girl from the back end of the 60’s, early 70’s, where the hair was being set with a higher crown. When everyone was a little bit more loose and lifted. The collection has a lot going on, lots of colors, it almost reminds me of the rave scene in the early 90s. We went to Gay Pride in LA and that’s sort of where the rave idea came from,” explains Nick.
Morning-After Mane How-To:
- • Prep the hair by applying Catwalk® by TIGI® Session Series Transforming Dry Shampoo to create a piece-y yet soft texture.
- • Lightly spritz the Catwalk® by TIGI® Bodifying Spray at the roots and messily massage with fingers to add lift to the crown and then on the surface of hair to create a light, effortless bounce without the weight.
- • Use fingers to scrunch the hair and add uneven texture.
- • Finish with a touch of the Catwalk® by TIGI® Session Series Work It Hairspray.
