BASSIKE X GOLDWELL
Australian heroes of minimalist design, bassike’s intentions were clear with a 4-minute period of (pitch black) silence bestowed upon guests. The Resort collection hinges on the premise of finding breathing space amongst the noise, and so the invisible lady with the soothing voice asked all to “put away your device” in the pouch provided. Darkness ensued … and then the light.
Golden yellow, tie-dye blue and ink joined outback medleys of colour and shape across the expected ‘basics’ – this season with added elevation in more tailored oversized suiting, heritage kimono cuts, full length skirting and high street jacketing.
“We’ve created a soft, flexible pulled-back plait fastened with ease at the base for bassike’s Resort 2022 runway presentation. Slight texture tousles the polished look to create a distinctly bassike aesthetic, radiating a quiet ease, effortlessness and androgynous feel,” commented bassike Creative Director, Deborah Sams.
Rising to the challenge of ample restraint were Goldwell artists Pauline Prechonnet and Karine Strachan, working in unison to create a prestige plait with an almost glass finish throughout.
“With a diverse cast presenting varying hair types and lengths, we worked with the individual to keep it consistent yet natural, healthy and polished,” says Prechonnet.
“The styling reflects the bassike brand beautifully. It’s effortlessly cool, structured and androgynous. We’ve included a great mix of Goldwell products to achieve the perfect texture,” said Strachan.
The mix included Kerasilk Repower Volume Blow-Dry Spray (for required root lift) before Goldwell Stylesign Creative and Texture Hardliner Acrylic Gel stepped-in to smooth and tie-off the look. An extra hit of health arrived with Goldwell Dualsenses Rich Repair 6 Effects Serum through ends, and for those in need of some extra hold, Goldwell Big Finish Volumizing Hair Spray.
