“This season the team is working with the idea of combining geometric and irregular shapes, strong yet soft,” says Mark Hayes, international creative director. “These geometric cuts are softened with lengths of spiral panels that add trailing veils of movement, a compelling combination of feminine strength and softness.” According to Color Director Annie Humphreys, color this season will also follow the spiraling form. “Color frames the graphic internal cutting shapes,” she says. “The team is using combinations of pale lavender with creamy white, purples with fuchsia and blue on deepest, darkest blue.” The inspiration: the abstract paintings of Barnett Newman and Morris Louis, key artists of postwar America. “Their methodical, mapped-out approach perfectly echos the Spiral Collection, which celebrates hair as art,” says Hayes.
