Hair Decor: 7 Styles Straight From The Spring 2015 Runway

hair1

Maximal impact, minimal effort
This week was the first time I grabbed a light jacket on the way to work, and I plan to mostly embrace Autumn’s cool aura with sophisticated and somewhat somber ensembles. Key word here is “mostly”. Serious fashion is maximized by a touch of levity, a whimsical flourish to add cheeky personality to even the most serious fashion statement. And what better place for fun flair than the tippy top of your hair? I got the idea from the Paris Spring 2015 Fashion Shows, where ornamental accessories added a touch of irreverent opulence to many a model mane. Inspirational items included a simple gold ring (Céline), graphic comb (Lanvin), gilded headband (Valentino), or a few fresh floral blooms (Dolce &Gabbana). The Spring of 2014 will forever be known (in my mind at least) as the Season of Guido Palau, who lovingly fastened gorgeous custom pieces into place at all three of those fashion houses. With Palau on the forefront, there’s a breath of fresh innovation flowing from the east and set to make a mark out west. 

Let’s break down the key details of Spring 2015’s designer hair decor. 

1. Celine

Celine

On the Celine Spring 2015 runway, hairstylist Guido Palau accentuated models’ casually textured hair with golden barrettes personally designed by Celine Designer Phoebe Philo. Slender golden circles neatly held hair in chic half back hairstyle that offered a glimmer of glamour as each model turned and walked back down the runway. “The hair is pulled half back, which is a very classic style,” Palau explained to Allure Magazine, “We sprayed freshly washed hair with Redken Windblown, a texturizing spray, to add natural-looking movement… Then we placed the hair in this beautiful gold ring, which elevated the quite simple hairstyle into something super-rich. It’s kind of amazing what a hair accessory can do.”  Even cooler, these hair pieces are almost identical to the signature hardwear on Celine’s latest it-bag offering, a strappy leather pouchette forged of brown and black leather.

2. Lanvin: Combs In Chignons

Lanvin

AtLanvin’s 125th anniversary show, Palau tucked gold combs beneath classic chignons to “give them a bit of glamour.” The low placement and understated sophistication lent the hairstyle a graphic, structured edge. “It’s a nice way of using a hair comb,” Palau told Allure Magazine, “It gives the look a little bit ofchicness and glamour, and it also makes a simpleknot feel more special.” Simultaneously elegant and modern, the hairstyles at Lanvin beautifully straddled the fine line between honoring one’s fashion roots and looking forward to the next big thing. Best of all, these neat knots are easily replicated and accessorized by fashionistas from LA to NYC. Lanvin looked forward and reminded us that good taste will never go out of fashion.

3. Valentino: Mermaid Tiaras

Valentino1

“It’s almost like she’s been in the sun for the first time,” Palau sad of the modern mermaid hairstyles he created for Valentino’s Spring/Summer 2015 Fashion show, “There’s a real softness to conjure up the spirit of the summer, with waves and a center part that hangs slightly over the ears.” After spraying damp strands with texturizing spray, the model’s hair was scrunched and set with a blowdry.Then, Palau curled sections at random and then gathered the hair into a deconstructed, beachy half ponytail. Good hairdressing aside, the real genius was once again in hair accessorization, this time with a gold shell studded tiara Ariel would have almost certainly gone mute for. This Season’s muse was The 18th Century Custom of a ‘Grand Tour’, or finishing school/summer vacation abroad hybrid during which elite young ladies would spend months promenading glamorously through Italy. I’m especially smitten with the way Palau wrapped pieces of hair around the accessory, as if human and ocean came together as one long-submerged wonder.

4. Dolce & Gabbana: Ruby Blooms

Dolce2

“Feminine, soft, pretty—this is how girls want to look,” Palau told reporters backstage at the Dolce & Gabbana Spring 2015 Show. Dolce & Gabbana’s latest collection is Spanish inspired, specifically by Kingdom of Sicily’s rich aesthetic during Habsburg rule stretching from 1516-1713. Palau accentuated the designer’s matador red dresses and gold-embroidered flats with fresh ruby roses and carnations. After blowing it smooth, Palau gathered the model’s hair into romantic gatherings that sat low and a little loose. Those gorgeous, saturated blooms were randomly added along with lacquered ornamentation to strike the perfect balance of whimsy and passion.

5. Fendi: Crocodile Tail Hair

fendi1

More “fierce” than “feminine”,  the Lagerfeld-designed leather flowers at Fendi Spring/Summer 2014 were attached to “crocodile tails” and pinned on top of the models’ messy, sexy ponytails. Yes: crocodile tail hair. Dreamt up by hairstylist Sam McKnight (presumably to give Guido Palau a run for his money), the crocodile tail begins as a low-slung, vastly volumized ponytail with tons of semi-messy texture. Then came the oversized leather flower dripping down into long tail shaped flap and ending just above the hair tips.

6. Bottega Veneta: Floral Combs

bottega

“It’s almost like gym hair,” Guido Palau said of the undone knots he created for Bottega Veneta’s Spring/Summer 2015 Runway Show. After working his usual texturing/blowdry magic, Palau wound the length of the model’s hair into a loose, après-sport bun with unfinished ends and a few face framing flyaways. The chic concoction was topped by delicate, jewel encrusted floral combs for an intoxicating hint of femininity.

7. Missoni: Patterned Turbans

missoni1

For the Missoni Spring/Summer 2015 Runway Show, hairstylist Paul Hanlon topped sleek buns and ponytails with the label’s signature color saturated scarves. Missoni has long been a bastion of modern bohemia, and the inspiration for Spring’s sensual hairstyle is no exception. Novelist Zadie Smith was the muse for the bold faux-turbans Hanlon fashioned out of winding scarves and padded topknots seen on some of Missoni’s runway models. He began by winding the scarves an inch back from the forehead, and into a customized conical headwrapping that rested tightly over ballerina buns. “There’s a 1940s chic to it,” Paul Hanlon said of his creation “plus it’s great for the eyes!”.

Some buy Vogue for the pretty pictures: Our Favorite Campaigns of Fall 2014

A great edition of Time has to have minimal advertising– I mean who wants to have to flip through endless advertisements for Activia? On the contrary, a  great edition of Vogue (or Elle or Harper’s or whatever) contains the best, most ravishing advertisements one can find- the season’s latest fashion campaigns. These campaigns can be so chic, so sexy, so sophisticated that sometimes, we can’t help but skip through the articles and “only look at the pretty pictures.” Middle school style. 

Here are our favorite campaigns (reading distractions) of the season. 

Moschino 


Jeremy Scott takes aver Moschino with a bang– or more appropriately, a burp. The young designer debuts as the new Moschino Creative Director with a McDonald’s inspired collection. The runway collection has been described by some critics as “trashy” and “over the top.” Other critics, on the other hand, enjoyed the playful collection by the young designer and described the collection as “delicious.” 

Because of how the collection was shown on the runway and the critics’ sometimes harsh reviews, we expected Moschino to put out an ad campaign just as “over the top” and “delicious” but instead, what we got was an elegant ad campaign with some of New York’s most sophisticated. 

hbz-moschino-ads-2-lg

Celebrated photographer Steven Meisel captured models Karen Elson, Raquel Zimmerman, Saskia De Brauw and Caroline Murphy in what seems to be a formal, high brow get together. But if you look closely, you can see the cheese  on Saskia’s dress and the other playful, clever details inspired by the world’s most well-known fast food chain. 

hbz-moschino-ads-1-lg

And what’s more Elegant than Queen Linda? The “M” on the quilted shoulder bag does not stand for “McDonalds” when the Chameleon Queen carries it.

It can stand for money, madame, magnificent or maybe even Moschino. 

 

Calvin Klein

There’s not much to say about the Fall 2014 Clavin Klein ad campaign promotion the hashtag #mycalvins. There’s little to say but lots to feel. Little words, lots of lust. Little speaking, lots of moans. hbz-best-ads-ck-01-lg

Photographer Mert Alas and Marcus Piggott reminds us why we pinned photos like these on out bedroom walls in the 90’s. (Kate Moss and Marky Mark, anyone?). Model Lara Stone is modernized in this ad mostly by the (strategically placed) hashtag. 

 

hbz-best-ads-ck-03-lgLara is joined by Anerican model Matt Terry. 

Of course the Calvin Klein girl has a boyfriend. Or maybe they’re just friends. With lots of benefits we all wanna partake in. 

 

Mulberry 

Party supergirl Cara Delevigne, turns her head away from the London party scene for just a little to enjoy all that the beautiful English countryside has to offer.

Father’s Day Gift Guide: Stylish Presents for Superior Dads

 Stylehaüs Father’s Day Gift Guide: 7 Stylish Presents For Superior Dads

fday3

Father’s Day is once again upon us, and we’re thrilled for the annual opportunity to put aside our Daddy issues and show thanks for paternal care with thoughtful gift giving and sweet speeches.

Dads are notoriously hard to shop for: their taste is dubious, their trendiness is often nonexistent, and their communication skills halted at puberty. Worst of all, Dads rarely say what they actually want. Instead, they’ll simply say “I have everything I could ever want” and then start talking about something super dull like golf or nature.

It is a rare Dad that truly appreciates or even gives a second thought the never-ending ebb and flow of fashion. Don’t despair: our stylists have assembled a list of Father’s Day Gift ideas guaranteed to bring delight and approval to even the fiercest Fathers.

1. Classic Leather Wallet

wallets

What better gift to give Daddy than the gift of carrying cash in style? Think of the positive associations: every time he looks at money, precious Papa will think of you.

Plus, wallets are one of the few Dad friendly luxury accessories. Even the most modest man will accept and enjoy the gorgeous status symbol of a chic wallet.

Wallets are a gift that will be paid back threefold he’s contemplating whether you REALLY deserve that YSL crossbody for a birthday present and his lovely leather accessory reminds him of your boundless and utterly selfless generosity. You’re such a nice person!

Brahmin Billfold Wallet in Black Melbourne, $98. Santiago Gonzalez Crocodile Wallet, $595. Gucci ‘Microguccissimma’ Wallet in Navy, $300. Giorgio Armani Hammered Leather Wallet with ID holder, $395.

2. Poised Planner

planners

If your Dad is anything like mine, he’s partial to long-winded monologues about the importance of punctuality, discipline, moderation, and a myriad of other tedious traits.

Dads are practical. They like gifts that make sense. That’s why they have such difficulty comprehending the importance of accessorizing: it has no (TANGIBLE) benefit. By giving your Father a planner, you not only remind him of his own incredible importance, but you subtly signal that you too are a responsible person who understands the beauty of proper time management.

To me, the height of luxury is for even the smallest item to be a gorgeous piece in it’s own right. By sneaking some style in a stereotypically insignificant item, you’re giving dear Dad a taste of the good life. Without giving him the opportunity to blather on about growing up in a cardboard shack or whatever other guilt trip he adores to lovingly send you on.

Mulberry Leather Agenda in Natural Oak, $470. Moleskine Planner, $30. Trussardi Planner, $149. AcquaDiParma Planner, $148.

3. Super Soft Blanket

blankets

Even the MANLIEST Man can appreciate a super soft surface. Everyone likes to be comfortable, but Dads LOVE the serene sweetness of uninhibited comfort.

Super soft blankets are one of those items you don’t know you want until you get one, and then it’s something you can’t live without. Plus, Fathers aren’t exactly known for their glittering social calendar: blankets can be enjoyed solo, in the comfort of his Man cave.

Whether he’s tucking for a good night’s sleep or slumped over the couch watching the big game, your Dad will smile with simple joy every time he snuggles into his new blanket and thinks of the wonderful daughter he raised. American

Blanket Pattern Fleece Throw, $77. Missoni Home Pereseo Blanket, $775. Portico Wrapture in Faux Fur, $80. Barney’s New York Havana Herringbone Blanket, $335.

4. Regal Robe

robe

Is there any image more pervasive in American pop culture than the haggard all American Dad, wrapped in a ratty robe and clutching a mug of coffee as he retrieves the morning paper from the front steps?

Yeah, that picture needs a revamp. Stat. And you’re just the girl to do it! Like a fancy blanket, the luxury robe is a delight men seldom buy for themselves.

This Father’s Day, give your Dad the gift of waking up and shutting down in comfort and sophistication with one of these masculine yet stylish robes.

Derek Rose Satin-Stripe Dobby Dot Robe in Navy, $400.00. Hanro Night & Day Knit Robe in Black Iris, $218.00. UGG Australia Brunswick Robe in Navy, $145.00. Neiman Marcus Cashmere Robe in Charcoal, $712.

5. Leather Jacket

jackets

Unorthodox? Yes. Leather jackets are as synonymous with ‘cool’ as Dads are with ‘uncool’. Unless your Father is a member of Duck Dynasty or rides a hog, he probably hasn’t owned a leather jacket since the swinging 70s.

Yet deep inside every lame Dad lies a young man who, at one point or another, desperately wanted to be cool. Age, maturity, and acceptance may have diminished that deeply human desire for street cred, but it still lingers on in even the dreariest of Dads.

This Fathers day, give him the gift of cool. He’ll love it. I promise.

Dsquared2 Mixed-Media Moto Jacket, $1460. Vince Patch-Pocket Leather Bomber Jacket, $696. Diesel Bunmi Sheepskin Leather Jacket, $798. Gucci Leather Safari Jacket, $3,483.

6. Stylish Sunnies

Father's Day

Duh duh duh duh duh. BAD TO THE BONE. Duh Duh Duh Duh. I DRINK ALONE CAUSE I PREFER TO BE BY MYSELF. Etc, etc. Inside every middle-old man lies a moonshine chugging, salt of the earth REAL MAN who DGAF.

Left to his own devices, most men will continue wearing the same lame shades until their trusty sunglasses are broken or lost. Then, they will buy an exact replica of those sunglasses and repeat the process all over again.

Men are creatures of habit, and Fatherhood seems to exacerbate monotonous tendencies. Break the cycle by grabbing chic sunnies that lend sophistication, not silliness, to even the most conservative Daddy.

Oliver Peoples Wyler 54 Oversized Sunglasses, Dark Tortoiseshell, $325. TOMS Eyewear Navigator Sunglasses, Gunmetal, $139. Persol Retro Keyhole Round Sunglasses, Terra Di Siena, $370. Tom Ford Marlon Aviator Sunglasses, Rose Golden, $360.

7. Bold Belt

belts

Belts are hideously unappreciated members of the accessory realm. Unlike, say, a bracelet, belts perform a specific and necessary function: preventing your pants from falling down.

In this sense, belts are a lot like Dads, who perform the specific and necessary function of preventing their darling daughters from one of life’s ubiquitous black holes or just falling down during a teenage Smirnoff black out.

Give Dad the gift of snaz with a mature yet trendy belt that will keep his pants riding high. Although hopefully not too high. You might have to have a talk with him about the high pants. Just a thought.

Salvatore Ferragamo Vara Sardegna Oversized Leather Belt, Dark Brown, $360. Tom Ford T Buckle Belt, Oxblood, $730. Lanvin Men’s Patent and Suede Belt, Black, $395. Fendi Reversible Braided Leather FF Men’s Belt, Navy, $450.

From ruffles to flower appliqués, silk, chiffon and luscious fur, this collection completely evoked an old-Hollywood star meets 50s housewife. Lanvin never ceases to impress us and is one of our favorite designers of all time, especially since their clothing is not only the epitome of class, but Lanvin still manages to bring in a playful spirit. For their fall 2013 collection, models were decked out in statement jewelry, with “Help” and “Love” necklaces draped over silk dresses, oversized knit sweaters and chiffon blouses. Most of the pieces were black, grey and champagne, but there were pops of cherry red throughout the collection which gave the overall vibe an element of surprise and seduction. The silhouettes were classic and made you feel as if you had traveled back in time to another era. We also loved the styling of the runway, models had sleek chignon buns with a side part, black silk gloves and tights.
