IN YOUR FACE! DESIGNERS HAVE A CRUSH ON FACIAL JEWELLERY. FROM ACNE STUDIOS TO RICK OWENS TO GIVENCHY, FOR THE FALL WINTER 2015 SEASON YOU SHOULD PUT YOUR EYES ON EDGY APPLICATIONS.
Septum rings, pearl creoles, brooch-like studs, emeralds, rubies, skull studs… The list of epic jewellery could be continued for ages but instead of decorating clothes, this time they brilliantly adorn the models’ faces. From a golden all-over foundation at Rick Owens to oversized nose studs at Acne Studios to an exaggerated overload at Givenchy, this Fall Winter is going to be spectacular when it comes to “make-up”. Rick Owens has always had a thing for outstanding signature looks, so it was no wonder he sent out his models with gold painted faces to underline his artistic aspect. His starting-point was a Mayan mask. Acne Studios oversized nose studs were embellished with crystals and regarding the volume and shape Jonny Johansson dealt with, they pretty much made the collection complete. Meanwhile Givenchy’s Mexican-inspired chola girls were more opposing to the Victorian inspired line. Tisci proved that he still knows how to shock and put the houses SS12 jewellery line to the next level. It was refreshing, surprising, and new but above all the designers left us wondering if this edgy face decoration can be adapted to the fancy ladies’ make-up routine.
