Mercedes-Benz Fall/Winter 2014 Fashion Week: Ann Yee
For her Fall/Winter 2014 collection, Ann Yee called on a mix of textures to represent the layers of experience one gathers while exploring new cultures and perspectives. Hair, makeup and nail looks played off the mix of crochet sweaters, jersey basics, and vegan leather accents for a modern nomad look.
Aveda’s Jon Reyman led the hair look that he described as an industrial grunge feel, with inspiration drawn from the 1980s and ’90s. To create the style, he made four parts in the hair including a triangle-shaped part in front. He then put the sections of hair in ponytails and twisted hair into knots, and left hair undone in front to create a faux fringe. He called on Aveda products like Dry Remedy Daily Moisturizing Oil, Pure Abundance Style-Prep and Control Force Firm Hold Hair Spray.
Makeup lead Fatima Thomas for Mac created an intense blue violet lip color for an “’80s/’90s nod with a contemporary sensibility.” She kept the rest of the face light but made a stronger brow using shadow. Nails were adorned in graph paper-esque Jamberry nail wraps.
