The hair at Raquel Allegra set out to mimic the individuality of the collection.
Davines’ lead stylist Joseph DiMaggio worked with each of the models unique hair texture. To give it some more wave some of the models’ hair was slightly curled by blow drying the ends with a round brush held vertically. DiMaggio wanted a fresher and cleaner take on lived in hair.

Deborah Lippmann took inspiration from the tie dye patterns throughout the collection. To achieve a similar marble inspired look on the nails she used a cut up household sponge with a thin layer of polish and gently pressed it on to the nail. She then went back over certain sections with the polish’s brush to increase the contrast. The combination of colors was kept in the range of neutral beige and grey tones with her nail polishes She Wolf, Love in the Dunes and Like Dreamers Do. Sealed in with her Gel Top Coat the manicure was glossy and uniquely minimal.
Makeup artist Allie Smith completed the soft look with a fresh and glowing look. For the eyes she added some definition with a bit of olive green eyeshadow in the crease. The eyes were kept relatively natural with the absence of any mascara. The rest of the face remained very simple with a focus on a dewy finish.
Smith is hoping for more colors to be explored come spring. As for the beauty trends she’d do away with, heavy contour and overdone brows are on her list. She would like to see more people just embrace the natural thickness and shape of their brows.
The minimal beauty look complimented the bold patterns of the clothes well. Florals, stripes and tie dye inspired patterns were all featured on the pieces. The clothes were all quite light and flowing, a clear step in the line of the 60s and 70s trends seen recently. Raquel Allegra created a collection worthy of a modern hippie.
