Jonathan Simkhai’s fall-winter 19 collection encapsulated the modern woman with fluid feminine textures and redone classics.This vision was brought to life through TRESemme’s take on the textured low pony. By braiding a small section of hair at the nape, the hair was secured, only enhanced by soft tendrils that freely framed the face.
Odile Gilbert, TRESemme NYFW Stylist, said, “some girls have dry hair, some girls have oily hair, so sometimes I use a bit of dry shampoo, sometimes a bit of cream.” TRESemme Between Washes Style Refresh All-in-1 Spray gifted hair texture and lift from the root to give life to this low maintenance style.
Once the pony was secured with French pins, a thin elastic was tied like a choker around the neck to hold the hair down, while allowing it to graze over the body. The look was finished off with TRESemme Compressed Micro Mist Hair Spray Level 1: Texture. It was pulled through the face-framing tendrils to gently loosen the hair for a soft and natural finish.
When asked where she sees hair trends going in 2019, Gilbert says “Everything! I love curly, I love straight, I love wavy. You want everything, as a woman! It’s like the seasons, you can change your mind.” Like Simkhai’s take on fall-winter classics, we see a bit of everything.
From crisp shoulder-baring shirts and dresses to velvet slips and suits, Simkhai’s range offers women the power of choice. The palette was mostly warm and neutral, with rust, blush, and navy being stand-outs. Even in more tailored frocks, Simkhai created movement by using accents of lightweight textiles and trims.
The collection had an air of romance and regality with a sense of baroque drama and rococo ease. Each piece employed a tremendous amount of fabric manipulation and attention to detail. Beading and ornate floral appliques felt nostalgic on top of modern shapes.
The female form was highlighted with waist-belted suits, and silk gowns that melted down the body. The shoulders and collarbone acted as accessories that offered geometry to each look.
Makeup by Maybelline varied between the models, but all had a glowing, chiseled face, and defined brows. Rust red lips looked like vintage velvet against the skin, while nude lips modernized the looks.
With the help of TRESemme driving the textured low pony, romantic lines and classic styles were given a modern punch, without losing femininity and celebration of choice.
The Brooklyn designer then proved that no one does fashion week (and fashion week parties) better than New York. After the show guests then made their way to the after party at Sky Bridge to celebrate with everyone else. Severs glided across the room with Prosecco courtesy of Ruffino Wines.The party was DJ’ed by Mia Moretti. Then guests were treated even further to a surprise live performance by Zara Larsson. The Swedish vocalist and songwriter commenced people to swarm to the dance floor to dance along. Zara Larsson performed some of her hit songs such “Ruin My Life” and “Never Forget You,” making for a truly memorable experience.
