WHEN FASH­ION MEETS BEAUTY

Marie Claire (South Africa) - - BEAUTY -

The Philip Treacy X MAC col­lec­tion was two years in the mak­ing and in­cludes three lus­cious lip­sticks, three vivid liq­uid eye­lin­ers, two high­light pow­ders, two eye shad­ows, a mas­cara and two brushes. MC talks to the designer about his in­spi­ra­tion for this range. For this col­lab­o­ra­tion you pro­duced three hats.What in­spired you? My in­spi­ra­tion came from three gen­res of hats that I’ve cre­ated over the years: a very colour­ful per­spec­tive, a metal­lic per­spec­tive and a sort of gothic drama. How do you feel th­ese hats re­late to beauty and make-up? Hats en­hance the fea­tures of a per­son’s face, as does make-up. It im­proves the per­son, and we all need to be im­proved! You’ve been designing hats for 25 years – what do you think it says about the evo­lu­tion of hats that they’ve now be­come the sub­ject of a col­lec­tion with a beauty brand? I think it’s a great fit, be­cause when you meet some­one,or when you have a con­ver­sa­tion with some­one, you talk to their face.To em­bel­lish or en­hance the face or head is the most po­tent part of the body to dec­o­rate as it’s what you’re look­ing at. Why do you think you and MAC make a good fit? MAC is a rebel of a brand, and I deal in re­bel­lious head­wear. MAC has al­ways been a com­pany that is ex­per­i­men­tal and very in­clu­sive.The word MAC rep­re­sents the young, fresh and hip. Just like your hats… Just like my hats. ‘THIS IS A JAW
