TODAY I’M IN MILAN AND I’M WORKING ON THE ERIKA CAVALLINI FASHION SHOW.
HERE’S SOME IMAGES FROM THE SHOW AND A MINI REPORT BY ME.
A NOTE ON ERIKA: Over the past few years she has become something of a household name in her native Italy. Worn by Kendall Jenner, amongst many others, the line created by Cavallini, has a mix of Italian classicism and refined sportswear. Its a style that has more and more women around the world flocking to wear her brand.
The collection had a Wild West feel about it. Layers of loose tiered ruffles in block colours peaked out from jackets in long camisole tops, or heavily tiered skirts. The soft, feminine ruffles were paired with quite masculine elements. Oversized suit jackets, military green heavy duty cotton, cargo trousers in camouflage print, layered with harness, or cinched in at the waits with thin leather belts,tied not buckled, gave the collection, an “off-kilter militarism” as quoted by Erika.
The hair I created we called ” Day after hair” taking the idea that the girls hair had been slept on after being “done” the day before, this creating little imperfections in the hairstyles. Those imperfections are actually perfect and gave the girl all a little of their own character. If their hair was maybe a little curlier underneath than on top then we would encourage that.
Products used were:
Windle and Moodie Foundation Spray, Fortifying Spray, Thickening Cream, Invisible Day and Night Cream and WAM Revolving Irons.
Because of the individualism of each girl, I cannot really give you a step by step how to, but should you want to try this look at home, just embrace your natural texture and add some imperfections or don’t be afraid to exaggerate them.
