Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week Spring 2014 NYC: Delpozo

Backstage at the Delpozo Spring/Summer 2014 show Antonio Corral Calero, Moroccanoil Artistic Director, led his team with style and grace. He collaborated with Josep Font, creative Director for Delpozo, who was inspired by the portrait “Gypsy Woman with Tambourine” by Corot. Antonio created looks that experimented with concepts of volume to compliment a collection that included defined shapes, elaborate structures, and elements of nature. “I was completely inspired by the brilliant rounded shapes, lines and movement of Delopozo’s designs, and wanted to interpret them and bring them into the hair,” said Calero. To create the look, Moroccanoil Treatment was used as a foundation and applied to dry hair from mid-length to ends. Next, he lifted most of the hair and made a small ponytail. An elastic was placed at the root to offer support for the lift to come. He then brought the hair back down and back combed it starting at the back of the crown from the middle to the ends. He then teased it to create a kind of “nest” above the ponytail, occasionally touching it up with Moroccanoil Luminous Hairspray. He brought the rest of the hair back, creating a second ponytail above the first. To finish the look he pushed the second ponytail upwards to create more volume and secured them with bobby pins.

 Monica Marino, lead makeup artist for MAC Cosmetics also stayed true to Josep’s inspiration. She created a “Romanian Gypsy” look that worked with colorful eyes just as in the painting. She used hues like Cyan, Pure White and Processed Magenta to make the eyes the focal point. Lips and cheeks were kept very minimal, not to distract from the piercing eyes.
