Eyes dressed up in colourful hues had a second throughout the latest winter 2021 couture season.
For Armani Privé Couture, Linda Cantello swathed fashions’ eyelids in an eggshell blue.
“Mr. Armani wanted something playful and optimistic, so the idea of pastels on the eyes was both a wink to classic couture but also using pastels in a chic way and moving away from omnipresent dark eye makeup,” mentioned the worldwide make-up artist for Giorgio Armani Beauty. “The blue was Mr. Armani’s idea, and it did have me stumped as he said he wanted ‘the blue of Italian sugar bags.’ Luckily, I have an Italian assistant, so that helped a lot.”
To conjure up concepts for the wonder search for Alexis Mabille’s couture presentation, the designer introduced make-up artist Lloyd Simmonds the garments and set for the video and photographs.
“My first reaction was that I needed to create something graphic and sharp to unify the different geometries of the clothes,” mentioned Simmonds. “Secondly, I wanted to make use of coloration in a easy manner to accentuate every woman within the brightly coloured background.
“I thought it would be good to use eyeliner to tell the story,” Simmonds continued. “So I created a classic eyeliner shape, but instead of black, I used two different, contrasting colors to create that classic winged eyeliner. Each girl had her own colors that worked with her part of the collection. I wanted to keep it simple, modern and relatable, but still impactful, to play off the extravagant shapes of the collection.”
Peepers popped at different manufacturers’ shows this season, too, reminiscent of Off-White, Schiaparelli, RVDK Ronald Van Der Kemp and Viktor & Rolf.
