COLLECTION HAUTE COIFFURE AW 2013 Gold Sabah
Charlie le Mindu presents his second collection Gold Sabah for Paris Couture Fashion Week in the prestigious Galeries Lafayette, returning the focus to the head and the traditions of Haute Coiffure. Statement sculptural pieces for the head, created using the finest real human hair are inspired through a juxtaposition of traditional African tribal culture, and the experimental and bold aesthetic of hair, hairpieces, weave and colour within urban communities of African descent in the West. This season combines gold leather, silk, couture latex designs from Atsuko Kudo, luxurious gold coated hair created exclusively for CLM by Hairdreams, pushing the medium to it’s limits as never seen before. Taking on unfamiliar and often animalistic characters, hair is worked into unnatural shapes, deceptive textures and applied in unexpected boundary pushing ways re-affirming Charlie le Mindu as the singular master of Haute Coiffure in the world today. Hoods and masks cover the face and veil the wearer’s gender, which can scare, can seduce, or can empower.
Charlie le Mindu and Atsuko Kudo have collaborated on looks for this season’s Couture collection, the possibilities of what has emerged from this dynamic mark a defining moment with the king of haute coiffeur meeting the queen of latex couture. These thoroughly contemporary creatives have created sensational, sensual, fantastical ensembles within their respective disciplines for presentation in the art nouveau splendor of the famous domed atrium at Galleries Lafayette.
The collection brings together two strong London-based designers, both known for their cutting edge classicism and for providing looks for many of the world's most glamourous women including LadyGaga, Beyonce, Rihanna, J-Lo and Grace Jones.
The unexpected should be expected.
