Crazy Horse in the City of Light was the ideal location to stage “A Male Gaze”– the spectacular new 2015/2016 Fall/Winter Collection at Paris Haute Couture Fashion week by hair artist and designer extraordinaire, Charlie Le Mindu.
The underlying theme of the new collection featured silver-white shimmery, custom-made 100% real human hair by Hairdreams.
The collection was inspired by the Surrealist “male gaze” artistic movement of the Roaring Twenties, which Le Mindu used as the name of his latest collection to be centered around the concept of the gaze. The gaze is both an important instrument in communication and also the intellectual “engine” to anticipate a situation.
This is the second time Le Mindu presented his Haute Coiffure Collection in a landmark environment perfectly unveiling his sensational designs in a caberet show format at the famous Crazy Horse stage in a 30-minute revue with 5 different acts. The location ideally conveyed the erotic, sci-fi fantasies of the designer, who once again used 100% real human hair by Hairdreams as the most important element for his spectacular creations. Five dancers flaunted Le Mindu’s avante garde designs, among them was iconic dancer and artist Irina Bouglione. The stunning multimedia live-performance at Crazy Horse was accompanied by the music of French Electro-Duo “Kap Bambino”. The five separate acts were divided by dazzling Le Mindu video clips and performances from the band.
The focus of the new collection is centered around new gleaming, silver-white hair and pearls by Hairdreams. Le Mindu’s Crazy Horse models/dancers are in the buff sporting only the innovative, artistically-tailored hair dresses and hair pieces throughout the show. The fantastical creations of the collection include sparkling hair dresses, extravagant hair masks and bondage masks through which the designer and hair artist presents his own, unconventional perspective of the “Male Gaze” in an aesthetic revue.
Hairdreams created the silver-white shimmering real hair and pearls exclusively based on Le Mindu‘s vision for the collection. “This type of hair and exquisite quality is only available from Hairdreams“, says the elated designer. “This is the reason why I‘ve exclusively partnered with Hairdreams since 2010. Thanks to the specialists at Hairdreams and the unparalleled quality of their real hair, I am able to turn my abstract visions to tangible “Haute Coiffure” reality,” explains Le Mindu.
“For this new collection, ′A Male Gaze′, only the utmost highest-quality, hand-selected 100% real human hair in our 7 Star quality was used, which is characterized by perfectly healthy hair with a smooth, closed cuticle,“ explains Elisabeth Brandstetter, Hairdreams Marketing Director. “We are ecstatic that we can provide Charlie Le Mindu with the best hair in the highest quality contributing to this fascinating collection.“
The latest collection “A Male Gaze“ was presented at Crazy Horse in Paris to international press, top editors and thrilled spectators from the fashion and cultural scenes.
