respect Henkel

Indola launched the Street Collection 2020 recently and introduced us to the season’s must-have blockbuster technique #panelling, which has been used in both of the collection’s looks. Here’s a step by step guide on how to create Panelling Look 2 from the Street Style Looks 2020.

Panelling Look 2

This trend is all about the warm autumnal shades that create an interesting palette of subtle, yet present colour. The styling is sleek and rounded to showcase in full force the colour work in the fringe.
