Fur is Fendi. Fur is part of this Italian fashion house’s heritage and there was a lot of it in their autumn/winter 2013 collection: neon and striped, covering whole looks or used as neon lining to little booties and as accents to sunglasses and handbags. The models wore long French plaits and more fur twisted high on the head into a mohawk. There was that same punk spirit we’ve seen in New York and London this season but this time in neon shades – orange, pink, purple and magenta. And it wouldn’t be Fendi without a new bag on the block, this season it’s the Selleria collection.
At Pucci, smoky eyes caught the light with bronze finishing powders applied to the center of the lid. Matte black shadow was used at the corners of the eyes to bring out the metallic shimmer.
Peter Philips carefully applied gold leaf to models’ eyelids at Fendi, keeping the rest of the face bare.
Rodarte kept smoky eyes cool for hot summer nights, with a mix of icy blue shades topped with mother of pearl right across the lid.
At Chanel, Peter Philips brought the white light of midsummer nights to the girls’ faces, with satiny lids finished with a pale metallic shimmer and white gold nails.
Givenchy gave its girls the Midas touch for the runway, with a sequin cut in half and applied to the center of the eyelid, above and below the eye. The two halves only came together when the girls’ eyes were shut.
Eyes were swept with a wave of silver at 3.1 Philip Lim, highlighting the crease of the lid and widening eyes in a trick of light and colour.
