A strikingly graphic collection from New Zealand supremo hairdresser Danny Pato. We love the energy of the photographs and the edgy nearly-avant-garde but not quite vibe.
“I wanted to take some of the movements and obsessions of the 60s – space travel, New Wave and rebellion – and reimagine them for today”, said Pato. Hair is the collection is high-contrast black and white. A long bob (lob) has shattered layers of black and white; finger-waves are set to create a finger-like illusion; a shorter haircut has disconnected layers that integrate into each other to create a choppy effect; long dead straight hair, half-and-half black and white, features playful polka dots; curly hair is fully brushed out big and voluminous to catch the air; a sleek bowl cut is contrasted with a long, structured panels. The scale and patters of the dresses, designed by Pato, create playful optical illusions for the viewer.
