The Eternals collection, Chapter 1

The inspiration: authenticity and naturalness

Inspired by the design principles of Dieter Rams, Tom Connell, new Davines Hair Art Director, has created a collection for those who wear it, giving them the freedom to express their personal identity. The Eternals draws inspiration from the design principles of Dieter Rams, according to whom “having small touches of colour makes the world more colourful”.  And indeed solid full colour is the star, and immediately stands out in every look thanks to natural light. In this collection beauty reveals itself naturally and with authenticity.

“I always keep a document with me to write down things that catch my attention: a haircut I saw on the street, a piece of furniture, a film clip. Once a month, I read it and see a connection between all the elements, and I develop my ideas from there”, explains Connell.

Following inspiration, the expected photographic approach is authentic, natural and without post-editing. Every shot has been taken in the sunlight removing as many artificial elements as possible.

The colour: inspired by designer Dieter Rams

Colour choices have a drawn inspiration from the philosophy of the famous designer Dieter Rams, founder of the principle according to which “having small touches of colour makes it more colourful”. The choice of applying colour with selective rigour has enabled Tom to create, for each look, shrouded visual levels that unveil at a second glance whilst resulting in absolute harmony. The tone on tone colour line by Davines, View, and the permanent colour line Mask with Vibrachrome have been used in synergy to create the collection looks, and give hair shine and body.
