Internationally acclaimed editorial hairstylist Kevin Murphy is returned this February to direct the hair for Myer’s Autumn Winter 17 Fashion Launch, with Session Master James Nicholson leading the KEVIN.MURPHY team of stylists.
KEVIN.MURPHY has been the hair partner for Myer season launches since 2011, playing a key role in upcoming trends in beauty.
In its hometown of Melbourne, Myer held an exclusive event for fashion industry insiders at the impressive University of Melbourne’s iconic car park space in Carlton; where the latest trends in fashion, hair and make-up were revealed. This carpark, with its gothic-like arches and shadowy atmosphere, is one of the most in-demand filming locations in Melbourne, featured in Hollywood films, such as Mad Max.
The two hair looks that were featured are both inspired by the 1960s architecture of the university itself, taking cues from the iconic period buildings and the elegant and graceful mood of the campus. Kevin Murphy opened his bag of editorial tricks and using his own branded FRINGE.BENIFITS to add heavy fronts to one of the looks and to accentuate the mysterious styling mood. KEVIN.MURPHY collaborated with Headlines Australia to incorporate its hairpieces to bring models’ ponytails to life.
“I love taking inspiration from our unique Australian cities, their environments and buildings. So for 2017, we have blended the University of Melbourne’s architectural beauty with references from chic 1960s French actresses to develop an effortless fringed look that nods to the past, but is also very fashion-forward,” said Kevin Murphy.
“Our second hair look also incorporates the mood, contrast and allure of film noir to create an impactful, shimmering style, which perfectly balances the new Myer AW17 collection. Contrasting colour is continuing to be a hair trend that has staying power,” he said.
