HOUGHTON NEW YORK brought back the “Summer of ’69” with their latest collection, taking advantage of maximum volume in both hair and silhouette.
By now, the whole white after labor day joke is getting old. This doesn’t come without reason though, as white is the staple this Spring/Summer. Houghton took full advantage this season, favoring all over lace looks accentuated by over sized nude belts and details. Designer Katharine Polk smartly infuses oversized and extra full silhouettes into a collection dominated by slims and A-Lines.
In this instance, a floor length dress featuring ultra wide ruffles comes to mind, almost mimicking the styled hair in both movement and shape. Fabrication was a huge aspect of the collection as well, highlighting the contrast been dark and light, heavy and whimsical. Separates were shown combining sheer lace and chiffon tops with bottom weight indigo dyed denim. Every look was tied together with each model sporting classic white Chuck Taylors with blue and red trim. Overall the collection pulled together an aesthetic that was both effortless and laid back… but as they say, the effortless look takes more skill than the name implies.
Thanks to Cutler/Redken Salons for having us backstage to see the hair come to life.
