All aboard the Chanel train. The train that never stops moving as it journeys through the world, showcasing the diversity and international appeal of its collections. Apart from the usual Ready-to-Wear being shown in Paris, Chanel’s global capacity has seen its Pre-Fall and Cruise collections showing in Scotland’s Linlithgow, Shanghai and Bombay to name but a few. The next stop was Singapore. Sam was creating boyish, fringed chignons for a slightly edgier take on the Chanel aesthetic. “Karl wanted a simple but tough look for this collection, so we tucked away the girls’ hair into chignons and then flipped the ends forward to create a long side-swept fringe”, he explained. His make-up counterpart, Peter Philips, in tandem created a tough two-tone blue and black liner to give the girls even more punky attitude. With the opening of The Met’s new exhibition, “Punk: Chaos to Couture”, this week, it seems as though the punk trend is here to stay. Get on board.
