backstage look, Flashback, H/MU

Not long ago in 2010, Proenza Schouler started their hair and make-up signature look for the surf/skate SS10 collection. This specific summer collection was the inspiration for their recent collaboration with MAC cosmetics  (see our previous blog post about this collaboration). To date, the hair and makeup is similar to their earlier looks. Note the minimalist themes: natural skin tones, light colored lips, with darker hues around the eyes. Below we present the Proenza Schouler Girl in a timeline beginning with their most recent show going all the way back to that SS10 collection. “Natural beauty” at it’s finest!

This week, we are looking back at the H/MU of one of our 2009 productions; the Jonathan Saunders Spring 2009 show. Backstage, Saunders talked about ‘color’ being his main focus (see The result was a bright, electric and graphic collection, which came to life as well on the model’s faces. World-renowned make-up artist Pat McGrath created a very colorful make-up look to complement the collection, focusing on the eyes.

There’s nothing better than a good collaboration bringing together the best of some of our favorites. We are loving everything about Proenza Schouler and MAC’s new and limited edition beauty-collection. The much anticipated project has been in the works for several years getting the concepts and colors just right. To start with the packaging design alone is gorgeous.

The look was inspired by the rainbow/oil slick color palette of the spring summer 2010 collection playing with references from surf and skate culture. Jack and Lazaro created a collection that builds on the effortlessly cool Proenza Girl they have developed on the runway with Diane Kendal, Taking it to the next level with acid color pops and perfect nudes. To find out more about the collaboration between Proenza Schouler and M.A.C, klick here for the Vogue article and here for the Viva article.

Proenza Schouler’s collaboration with M.A.C cosmetics wasn’t their first venture beyond clothing.  Back in 2009 they released a range of textile’s with the high-end furniture designer Knoll. The designers are known for developing unique textiles with  innovative techniques and unexpected materials so experimenting with interiors made complete sense. Jack and Lazaro designed 5 different textile patterns based on previous collections such as the spring 2008 and the fall 2007 runway shows. The textiles are classic and sophisticated with dramatic use of color and patterns. To see the full collection and catalogue, click here.

Makeup Breakdown

Technically this beauty look is so Fall 2010. In the weird world of seasons in the fashion industry, it was a twinkle in our eye over a year ago backstage at Milly. Yet its our favorite look to transition into the summer. The subtle faded cat eye and flushed cheeks would be perfect for a summer evening. When everyone else is drowning in bronzer, this look is smoldering and pretty and light. Uh-oh, those summer nights.
