Check out our exclusive interviews backstage with the beauty experts behind the Denibi Spring/Summer ’17 show.
Denibi is a Barcelona based fashion house that specializes in ready-to-wear, furniture and leather goods. The brand pulls its inspiration from travels, “Barcelona, African heritage and minimalism.” The name “Denibi” represents a pure utopian futuristic island. The Spring/Summer 2017 collection is also inspired by this idea of a Utopian society. The color palette featured neutrals with muted pops of color such as pastel green. The collection included long trench coats and blazers with asymmetrical designs, avant-garde collars and unique ruching.. Many pieces were innovative and futuristic keeping in tone with the theme, even the few classic silhouettes that were re-imagined and recreated with a futuristic twist. Before checking out the fabulous Denibi show, we went backstage to hear how the models achieved their looks.
Jay Shu Lead hairstylist
Can you talk about the inspiration behind the look?
Basically they wanted two modern looks, one with a mid-part, straight very sleek and second one is a more contemporary look that’s an updo and the way we did it was an updo with a braid intertwined into it so then it fits the style of the clothes really well. We’re from & Hair Lounge, we’ve got three salons in Manhattan, one in SoHo, one in the East Village and one in the West Side and we’ve been doing shows for years.
Can you talk about the products you’re using?
We’re sponsored by Wella so we use only Wella products. We’ve been using Dry Me and the Crafting Spray. Wella’s been around for 75 years, they’re like of the oldest hair product companies.
Chika Chan Lead makeup artist
Can you talk about the inspiration behind today’s look?
The look is very minimalistic, we love the collection which is very crisp and clean and fresh so we wanted the makeup to be similar so what we did is created more of a boy brow to give even more character and we also used a little bit of a dewy glow for the face to blend well with the collection. The color pallets that we used are very similar to the collection itself.
Can you talk about the products you used?
We use Makeup Pro lip treatment on the skin to give it a dewy look, this lip treatment is one of our top sellers. We use Makeup Pro Mascara on the eyebrow to give it that messy boy brow and we use the neutral lip gloss that we have for the lip.[slideshow]
