Fall and winter may be synonymous with cold, icy tones, but that doesn’t mean we should forgo colour altogether. It was a celebration of life and freedom on the runways, with explosions of colour, haphazardly applied in streaks and dashes. The rule of thumb? Anything goes, judgemental stares be damned. Jumping on the colour blocking bandwagon was Marco de Vincenzo, with a vision of “Japanese cartoon meets cool” in mind.
Mark Fast opted for a ‘frozen under the rainbow’ look using frozen pastel shades on the eyes. His tip – “don’t overthink it, it should be fun and creative”. Yoji Yamamoto was the rebellious child of the lot, with a dash of black paint on one eye, and a streak of red one on the other. Said Pat McGrath of the samurai-inspired look, “There was a time when women wore makeup specifically to seduce, and now no one gives a f**k. Now more than ever, we’re wearing makeup for no one other than ourselves.”’
