Backstage at Thakoon

I’ve been a fan of Thakoon’s easy style ever since he designed for the GAP, and I loved the casual hair and makeup at his show this season. Diane Kendal for NARS did the makeup, and the trend was “golden luminosity”.

“The clothes are light so I wanted the makeup to have a little more impact this time – as if the girls were beautiful, cool fairies,” said designer Thakoon. “I wanted the whole aura to feel like opening windows and letting in a breeze- fresh and romantic but tempered at the same time.”
