Lead hairstylist Holli Smith has been a longtime collaborator with her good friend, menswear designer Patrik Ervell, who was inspired by the ethos of interior and industrial design for his Spring/Summer 2015 collection. Taking notes from Ervell’s choice of durable and high-tech materials (think weather-resistant outerwear), Smith wanted to create a look that was opposite of the popular wet hair seen on the runways. Instead, she opted for a dry and matte hairstyle associated with the punk and rock scene of the ’70s.
