PFW beauty report SS 17

From subtle to statement, there was something for everyone at Paris’s Spring Summer shows.

pfw_b_acne

Purple haze.

ACNE STUDIOS
Lilac lips made for a bold statement on a bare face.

pfw_b_mcqueen

ALEXANDER MCQUEEN
The ethereal beauty of a sea siren. Favor fell on the hair this season with makeup kept to a bare minimum.

pfw_b_balenciaga
pfw_b_balenciaga-2

The new accents.

BALENCIAGA
Keep your makeup minimal and leave your accessories to do the talking.

pfw_b_balmain

BALMAIN
Eyes were surrounded by smudgy, sultry kohl while hair stayed simple and sleek for Balmain’s SS 17 show.

pfw_b_celine

It’s only natural.

CÉLINE
Soft curls and natural waves moved through the Céline woman’s hair.

pfw_b_chanel

CHANEL
Alabaster skin with pink lips and peach cheeks. A porcelain effect.

pfw_b_chloe-2

Sweet signature.

CHLOÉ
Season through season the Chloé girl doesn’t change her tune. Liner around the eye – black, always. Hair: it’s best to not do a thing.

pfw_b_dior

CHRISTIAN DIOR
A sportier take on femininity as Maria Grazia Chiuri took the reigns. Hair was sleek in a high bun with boxer braids keeping things fresh.

pfw_b_driesvannoten

Play dirty.

DRIES VAN NOTEN
A dirt-like mask, streaked across the eyes, put the beauty look at Dries Van Noten well on its way to “losing control … a little.”

pfw_b_ellery

ELLERY
Just a hint. There were no bold statements here, just subtle touches of makeup across the face.

pfw_b_giambattistavalli

Cherry bomb.

GIAMBATTISTA VALLI
Lady in red. A fire shade of rouge coated the lips at Giambattista Valli for a simple pop of colour.

pfw_b_givenchy-2

GIVENCHY BY RICCARDO TISCI
Nature and sensuality ruled the day. Slippery and wet – the hair fell into soft formations.

pfw_b_haiderackermann-2

Bright spark.

HAIDER ACKERMANN
Turn me on with your electric feel. Static and spiked hair was the order of the day at Haider Ackermann.

pfw_b_hermes

HERMÈS
Shades of lilac and midnight blue adorned the models’ eyes at Hermès. A subtle splash.

pfw_b_isabelmarant

About a girl.

ISABEL MARANT
Marant described her look this season as everyday femininity. Your usual self.

pfw_b_jac

JACQUEMUS
Just as an orange sun shone from the end of the Jacquemus runway, an orange-pink blush gave models a glow of their own.

pfw_b_johngalliano

Into the woods.

JOHN GALLIANO
Pocahontas feathers and animal masks donned the heads of models at this season’s John Galliano show. Leave some time to daydream.

pfw_b_kenzo

KENZO
I see red, I see red.
Smeared around the eyes and lacquered on the lips. Rouge was the mood of the day.

pfw_b_lanvin
pfw_b_lanvin_p

Reflect on this.

LANVIN
This season the Lanvin woman kept hair long and brushed or sleek and back. Skin was bronzed and dewy while lids were adorned with the faintest hint of sparkle.

pfw_b_lemaire

LEMAIRE
Just as you are. Keep hair au naturel with only a hint of mascara on the upper lashes.

pfw_b_loewe

A sole statement.

LOEWE
This season focus was on the brows. Thick, dark and bold.

pfw_b_lv
pfw_b_lv_p

LOUIS VUITTON
Glamour met drama on the Louis Vuitton runway. Bold colour and lines came together for a look felt like the future by way of the 80s.

pfw_b_margiela

Outer reaches.

MAISON MARGIELA
No time for minimalism. Choose a cap to cover the scalp or a mix of glitter and fluoro for the face.

pfw_b_miumiu

MIU MIU
A retro summer fantasy. Floral swim caps and peach blush. Come on down to the water.

pfw_b_mulger

Streamlined.

MUGLER
Eyes were encircled in black liner and hair was sleek on the crown of the head and flowing through the lengths.

pfw_b_offwhite
pfw_b_rochas_p2

OFF-WHITE
A toupee of sorts covered the side of models’ heads at this season’s Off-White show. Paired with a deep part this is a look yet to be elected.

pfw_b_rochas_2

Sweet fantasy.

ROCHAS
Rollers in the fringe and a thin stripe of black through the brows. Whimsical and bold.

pfw_b_saintlaurent

SAINT LAURENT
Sex appeal met understatement at Anthony Vaccarello’s debut show for Saint Laurent. Skin shone with a light tan, brows were strong and defined and hair was mixed and matched to the model.

pfw_b_v-braquinho-2

Spooky mood.

VERONIQUE BRANQUINHO
Cracked and creased. Lips bled with colour in thin lines across the mouth.

pfw_b_valentino
pfw_b_valentino_p

VALENTINO
Soft curls framed the face in this ode to A Garden of Earthly Delights.

pfw_b_stellamccartney

Natural woman.

STELLA MCCARTNEY
Fresh faces all round for Stella McCartney. A simple embodiment of femininity.
