The Eternals collection, Chapter 2

Aurore Caboche Davines World News

In The Eternals collection, beauty reveals itself naturally and with authenticity, and both its chapters are at the service of those who wear it, leaving room for individual expression. The Eternals draws inspiration from the design principles of Dieter Rams, according to whom “having small touches of colour makes the world more colourful”.  Solid full colour is the star, and immediately stands out in every look thanks to natural light.

New artistic direction

The Eternals is Tom Connell’s début as the brand’s Hair Art Director. Born in Manchester, he moved to London to develop his identity as a stylist, which was already fully established at a young age. He became artistic director of Trevor Sorbie in recent years. Explorer and experimenter of the world of hair and its myriad possibilities, his work focuses particularly on the creative process. In this project, Tom is guided more by principles than by pure technique to reach unique top-level results. Guiding hair without transforming it is his goal, using thinking instead of method.

Full and solid colours

Tom Connell follows Rams’s philosophy in a personal investigation that looks for the concept of solid colour creating unusual and intense effects with a natural touch for ready-to-wear looks: refined and timeless. Destructured looks, pixie cuts, bobs and natural fall: every proposal cherishes a different soul. Cut and styling in all proposals are at the colour’s disposal. A solid colour, without shades, alternates with defined and sharp touches in specific sections, thus creating colour contrasts that turn out anyway harmonious together.  The focus of this collection is undoubtedly a round and clear colour.

The new nuances of View, Davines demi-permanent colour line with high percentages of natural ingredients and biodegradability, have been used to give shine and body to the hair.



Suitable for any face shape, the composition created by the two complementary tones of this «caramel blonde» organic colour winds up as a spiral around the head bringing the abstract inspiration of Op Art artist Bridget Riley into real life.




Disconnected haircut with short geometric shapes in the front combined with longer sections on the nape highlighted by the application of a dusty blond on both sides, and by the movement created through the darker section in the centre.




The structured French bob shape invigorated by a line that gets shorter on the face, combined with a short Jane Birkin-like fringe, is the natural wavy base in an ultra blond colour with a touch of pastel pink.
