ART TEAM COLOUR SPECIALIST LIZZIE FOX SHARES THE KEY COLOUR TRENDS …
Spotted on many of the S/S15 runways, patchwork, psychedelic prints and abstract art look set to make a comeback. Abstract prints among a bold colour palette of electric blue, blood orange and black in contrasting shapes were key at Preen, while Derek Lam introduced a patchwork effect by creating panels of colour using teal, burgundy and purple. Burgundy was also seen in Gucci’s retro show, along with toffee, cream and brown tones applied globally and within a blending pattern. This season, I will enjoy mixing a variation of brown hues with contrasting copper and mahogany tones, with patchwork prints as my inspiration.
The Spring/Summer 2015 season is set to showcase styles with soft and delicate hues. Haider Ackermann’s collection was serene and peaceful, with white, pink and lilac tones creating a ‘lighter than air’ feel. Free flowing and romantic, clean blondes will be influenced by blossom hues this season. Huishan Zhang coloured his models’ hair with a beautiful calming range of pastels, in shades of peach, pink, lemon and lilac and I will be using these hues as toners to give blondes an elegant finish this S/S15.
At the Sally Montague Hair Group we will be embracing dark, structural colours this season, inspired by Givenchy, which showcased an edgy, romantic collection, with monochrome making a bold statement and enhancing the strong lines of the tailored pieces. Strong geometric prints created a sharp show at Ellie Saab, with a colour palette ranging from black, blue and orange. Lanvin displayed sophisticated tailoring with rough edges, strong and A-lined shapes. The colour navy dominated the show, which I think will be gorgeous within hair colour this season, helping to create sharp lines with a dark base.
