Malissa Masci's New Collection: Street Fusion

Malissa Masci is enamored with Korean and Japanese style, so when she began working on her latest collection, Street Fusion, she knew she wanted to photograph her models in apparel from Lucky Chouette, a Korean fashion label that mixes layering, texture, tartan, illustrations and polka dots with a predominantly ‘80s feel. Makeup was neutral with an emphasis on the eyes, which were heavily lined. As for the hair, well, think of Gwen Stefani’s Harajuku girls—the shapes, the different textures and the attention to detail. “Girls are not afraid to look more androgynous, with undercuts and full fringes,” says Masci, who used bold, bright color to mirror what’s happening on the streets. “Color is such a strong trend, and I believe it will continue to play an important part in anyone’s fashion statement.”
