The collection features;
THE MUSES, developed by the International Sassoon creative team at the world renowned Sassoon Academy London, lead by Mark Hayes the International Creative Director.
For the ancient Greek poet the muse was a powerful figure. This season Sassoon Academy presented three new visions of the ancient force; IRIS inspired by the rebellious socialite Nancy Cunard, her fictional counterpart Iris Storm and the couture ateliers of 1920s Paris; Soho-Boho, a contemporary version of the writer Caroline Blackwood, wife of painter Lucien Freud who could be found roistering in the Bohemian dive bars of forties Soho, and Ye-Ye a futuristic interpretation of Vidal Sassoon’s sixties muse Peggy Moffitt set in cyber-cityscape inspired by the architect Salvatore Calatrava.
Hair teeters on edge between chaos and control setting up a dynamic tension between Ye-Ye’s androgynous bowl shapes, the barbered bobs and finger waves of Iris and the louche dishevelment of Soho-Boho after a raucous night at the Colony Room. The harmonious red, orange and fuchsia of Iris deliberately contrasted with the discordant red, green and blue Mallen streaks of Soho-Boho as Ye-Ye takes the industrial sheen of Calatrava’s biomorphic architecture and creates a stripped back and sleek palette of pewter grey and lens-bright sky-blue.
