Picasso-Inspired Painted Hair at Moschino

Picasso-Inspired Painted Hair at Moschino

The Moschino Spring 2020 presentation this season was akin to a painter's canvas. Kaia Gerber, Bella Hadid, and Adut Aketch all walked down the runway in outfits that seemed to have sprung out of Pablo Picasso's paint brush.

Underlining this theme were the whimsical hair looks for the night. Designer Jeremy Scott appointed the iconic Julien d'Ys, who has previously fashioned memorable hairstyles for the likes of Céline Dion.

While Scott found his primary inspiration in Picasso's work, d'Ys interpreted this in his own artistic style. Models were seen sporting Spanish-style knots, as part of Scott's homage to Picasso's hometown.

After securing the parted lengths of the hair into fuller and loose chignons, the top of the head was then painted with strokes of green, pink, violet, and blue to match with the colors on the outfits.

"We're completely in the world of Picasso," d'Ys told Vogue backstage. "I'm a painter, I'm an artist, and I knew I was the right person to do this."

Topping these dreamy looks was the makeup by Kabuki, who in order to "evoke Picasso" chose a more minimal palette of makeup that contrasted the brighter colors across the hair. The look was finished with sharp red lips and extended wings around the corners of the eyes.
