A Midsummer night’s dream. Indeed, at the end of February, as the fashion show of Luisa Beccaria was held on February 23, 2017 in the Società del Giardino: pastel dresses minimally treated, transparencies, magnificent details, light and fluffy fabrics, woven hats and a general arcadian inspiration are the ingredients of this collection.
The stylist said that these clothes should be able to make women feeling confident every day, not just on special occasions such as weddings or other similar ones; the inspiration for the location follows this line: dry leaves scattered on the floor, intertwined branches of creepers and elegant chairs suggest the idea of a dreamy imaginary environment from the very first moment.
The overall atmosphere is fabulous and the purest beauty and elegant classical style is featured in this collection, a presence underlined by Tiffany jewelry that adorn the different looks; the brand has indeed started a collaboration with Beccaria, showing since this first result a common desire to embellish the femininity in all its aspects.
OUR FAVORITE LOOKS
A SUMMER BLOOMING
Bright pink floral details (which recall those present on the little crown) emerge on the fabric color baby blue, of which it is composed the entire set composed of shorts, shirt and light jacket, all combined with a clutch bag and moccasins. A perfect look for casual outings in the summer evenings.
So nicknamed for the red dress with pink flowers that emerges from beneath the grey coat. Fluttering sleeves, colored shoes as the strap with woven floral wreath and luminous details make sophisticated and chic what may be a look for everyday commitments.
THE FLOWERING OF FEMALE
The semitransparent and floral details are present both on the veil and on the dress, for a princely aggregate (also suggested by the little crown), spring and pure, ideal for a bride who on the happiest day of her life wants to bloom like a delicate lily.
Luisa Beccaria do not escapes from the Velvet as material trend of the season: the red of passion, with neckline right in the hollow of the bosom, wraps around any shape enhancing forms, making in this way a woman’s body desirable and modern.
We find the red, this time paired with fabric details present on sleeves and skirt in a softer variant, in this dress with a wide skirt, a deep neckline and regal sleeves. The small flowered crown and a belt with luminous details are also there presented. A typical aura of the fairy past and the magnificent surrounds and embellishes this look.
Thanks to Mac Cosmetics we also had the opportunity to assist to various stages of preparation of the fashion show in the backstage: we saw and touched the clothes up close, met the designer, assisted to the fitting and to the final test but most of all, we have closely observed the processing of hair and makeup.
As told by Luisa Beccaria, the makeup is simple, just mentioned, in order not to divert attention from the clothes and it is portable for every woman during all times of the day: golden eye shadows, highlighter in the right places and a few other adjustments have been proposed for all models.
The hair has a deliberately blur and messed appearance, both gathered and loose, completed by garlands of flowers. We asked to Cynthia Rivas, Global Senion Artist MAC, which was the inspiration and the products used to obtain the final looks:
What was your inspiration for this makeup?
The main inspiration is romantic and romance and what we did is to use neutral tones: pinks, mauves and than we added an accent of gold on the eyes and we did that to contrast the fabrics of the dresses which have no shine. So we applied the gold to make the eyes stand out.
Which are the key products that you have used?
The key product for the Look is the palette Casual Colors: cheeks and lip stain that you can use on the eyes too. It works for all skin tones and what you do is just to lightly apply the product with your fingers and it gave to you a beautiful finish, it’s also hydrating for the lips.
