Remington for NYFW Luca Luca SS11


I have to say I’m loving the textured do’s we are seeing more and more of lately and this look certainly didn’t disappoint!

The Look:

“The carefree style also translated into what Raul describes as ‘easy, pretty hair’ – that of a girl who’s been lounging on her private yacht all day and has come to shore for a fabulous dinner – a perfect match for his SS11 collection.”

How to create:

“Backstage at the Luca Luca show, Remington stylist Teddy Charles shows that the look is all about layering curls. First a soft wave was added to the hair by blowdrying (at home use Remington Salon 5000 RRP $83.95) with a barrel brush, before centre-parting and crimping (Remington Crimptini RRP $22.95) all over. Sections were then curled using a conical tong (Remington Tribal Tong RRP $53.95) and each side tightly styled into a French roll from above the temple. Each side was then curled across each other into a tight bun, making a soft, feminine and effortlessly chic look.”

Watch the video below to see the final look, hear about the inspiration behind the collection and see some backstage footage.

“We wanted to fuse together both colour and light. We were inspired by Chavela Vargas, the Mexican singer,” said Lena Koro. “Polished and bright- and coinciding with the prints of the clothing.”

Welch and Bridget Bardot: 

the winged eye, the nude lip.

The dress is so classic, so we

wanted to be adventurous with

her eyes– giving a dash of color with the new 

Palladium Soft Touch Shadow Pencil – 

and kept the lip nude with Tashkent Pure Matte!”
