Latest fashion trends: SS 2013 Runways and the beauty looks


17 October 2012

Latest fashion trends

An interview with Anna Kim, beauty editor, Stylesight

beautypress: What are the beauty looks which came out again on catwalks SS 2013? What will be big tendencies for the make-up and hairstyle?

AK: In a total way, we are dealing with a more "aggressive", strong fashion season. The former winter was more glamorous, for this season we will have more the feet on the ground. It wasn't a question of reinventing an attitude, but rather of pricking here and there ideas and emotions and of putting them together.

Tendencies-keys: New Grunge (hairstyle + make-up)

o Grunge way 90' s: Courtney Love, Emma Balfour, Kate Moss these faces were often recalled during inspirations backstage. But they are far from the grunge trash and squalid of the 90' s. Francelle Daly is a professional make-up artist and perfectly described idea to Phillip Llm «It is from the modern grunge, without the grunge». This one indeed sees itself more purified, more natural. We had a nice example of this in mind with the parade Dries Van Noten. Minimalist make-up, thickened eyebrows, tonalities mole, espresso, coffee with the skin intelligently matified, hair is dropped, the root sometimes resembles.

o The creators who followed: Balmain, Philip Lim, Proenza Schouler, Elizabeth and James, House of Holland, Isabel Marant, Topshop Unique, Philosophy di Alberta Ferretti, Prabal Gurung, and many others else.

Statement Red Lip

o The red mouth is and will always be present during parades, all difference rests in how it is reinvented every season. And this year, the red mouth could require up to 4 - 5 successive stages on some parades, where overlapped colours, textures and pigmentations. Often linked to luminous complexions and a minimalist look, these lips weren't indecent, but gave a modern look.

o I find this phenomenon rather remarkable "lipstick". Some years ago, the lipstick had gone out of fashion and only our mothers and big - mothers had but it still remained faithful. The gloss had the monarchy. Then recession arrived, more and more women went back to work and the lipstick became the emblem of this collective force. The red lipstick is the perfect example of womanhood, of insurance and of sophistication. Morals evolved. The pink and the gloss are more youthful references. Now, you see teenagers and women of about twenty years hitting in a daily way of the red lipstick. And I dare to think also that it is also a question, unknowingly, of outdistancing us of cannons of beauty cast by the television-reality (smocky look, blocks glossée extremely). With the red lipstick, they want to guarantee an attitude more "lady", more sophisticated.

o The creators:Prada, Jason Wu, Rochas, with Loewe

Blue (make-up)

o The blue took its ease for this season. Nothing surprising when they know that socially, this colour has a value shelter. Last season, we saw blue peacock, and this season a lot, these will be more aquatic, more marine overalls. As though the creators were fascinated by the world of the sea. The aquatic overalls take us therefore towards more exotic stopovers, where the water is transparent. It is a break in ourselves. The marine overalls, all over their seriousness, give us more security and comfort.

o The creators:Altuzarra, MONICA LHUILLIER, Jeremy Scott, with Mary Katrantzou, with Dior, with Rebecca Minkoff

Yellow (make-up)

o A yellow as the sun, translucent represents a reality this season. It clarifies the look and captures the way to tighten light. It matches perfectly with the colour lips grapevine; an interesting texture will be the one who gives the impression that the painting in the water was used.

o The designers:Peter with Som, with Badgley Mischka, with Harbours 1961

Matt textures (hairstyle)

o There are many hairdressers who treated the hair as a full material, giving again to him its substancielle utility.

o The creators:Prada, Louise Gray, Giles, Donna Karan, with Bottega Veneta

Looks of excellence:

Prada and Jason Wu-Revendication of the red mouth, ultimate symbol of self-confidence and of sophistication.

Missoni-It had been some seasons since we had seen spacious and such round mouths. Fushia and orange colours foreign to parades aren't, but when they blend, they give a completely refreshing result. The final return is matt, slightly incomplete. With such colour, one are rather searched effect than final colour.

Dries Van Noten: An urban but elegant attitude. I think that he is absolutely representative of the mind of season. The fushia pink of mouths, put in honour during parade, is a pink certainly strong but portable.

Vivienne Westwood Red quality-label The creator got used to us in her eccentric parades, but this one represents mind literally and borrows it artistic that personalities such Andy Warhol left in our lives.

Purified and medieval Rodarte

Peter Som- Effet miroir of colour carried in make-up and in hair. Some innocence in spite of the daring side of look was found there.

beautypress: What these trends bring to your opinion?

AK: Since recession, a way to consume more thoughtful and reflected is advocated, they are less in consumption bling-bling. The reaction of the women facing this new attitude: back to BASIC, the return to the basics (beauty). Looks are more more natural, sometimes even masculine, very business to represent this woman who turns / continues to work. Where from the big return of lipsticks on the front of the beauty stage. In spring they will also see coming back colour as reinforcements: neon, flashy, as though the morale of troops returned to the fine weather and wanted to get rid of prejudged ideas. During winter 2012, colour evolved in a sophisticated and glamorous way, putting in the center the cinema woman: Girl With has Dragon Tattoo, Hunger Games. Our fascination for culture vampire is still not satisfied, it is seen very distinctly with some more Gothic and glam looks. 

The next American presidential election, the narrow pronunciations between politics and economy, all this burning themes will encourage us next spring to turn us to more normality, compliance. As though to be normal, it was to be cool. It is a goodbye in forgery. There is a real desire of authenticity, with a preference for habits and objects which enliven our daily.

beautypress: What are the palettes of colours for SS 2013? And how are they transposable in our make-up or our hairstyles?

AK: Tonalities very "of the Earth « are cinnamon, the persimmon, the gold and the grey blue.


Overalls: turquoise, by way of the seaweed in the marine blue. A frank yellow establishing itself as a new neutral.

beautypress: Are nails tendencies? What are the most creative and innovative nails which you have noticed?

AK: Our nails, it became as our own jewellery, a kind of personal jewellery-making. This season, no things too much worked out: more elegance, more accessible also for the women of any ages. I found that Ruffian had perfectly completed this mission. We have again the French manicure, but with variations of colours (eg at Peter Som: base mint, line clementine)

However, nude nails nude in net majority. Even to Topshop Unique, the nail was neutral, what is in break with the past of the brand and its very artistic experiments. There was remarkable mancures during this Fashion Week, notably the "bloody" manicurist seen at Jason Wu, but for me the most creative manicurists are those who visited again the nude just. The medieval bondage seen to Rodarte was hypnotising.
