PFW SS16 Day 5: Vivid expressions
Explosion of colours
Haider Ackermann and Vivienne Westwood pulled no punches when it came to the runway; macaron-hued mohawks with vein-like strands across the face rendered an elegant punk appeal at Ackermann, while Vivienne Westwood showcased a grungy array of colour explosions, from the vibrant multi-coloured face and hairdos to fancy, face-masking headgears. Olympia Le-Tan looked to the orient for inspiration, flaunting neon pink eyeshadow around heavily-lined eyes and wispy flyaways.
There were also milder takes to the season—Acne Studios referenced the '90s with bold, blunt bangs and dark red lips, while Elie Saab went for a more approachable beauty, showcasing fresh faces with a light shimmer to the eyes.
