Another show, another inspiration for a new set of wigs. Following straight on from L’Wren Scott in London, Sam created these short black wigs for the Fendi show in Milan for Karl Lagerfeld. Speaking of the look, Sam said, ” as he always does before a show, Karl sent me a sketch of a very graphic black hairstyle, which was his idea for the new season. We tried various shapes, sizes, even adding colour. But after many incarnations, a short, boyish black choppy fringed mop was deemed the one! I thought of it as Linda Evangelist meets Rei Kawakubo meets the Beatles. The black hair was the opposite of the bright airy collection, and punctuated it perfectly”. Tied in with the electric coral lips by make-up maestro Peter Philips, it was the perfect incarnation of a modern day woman.
