DSquared2: Let’s go ‘Glamping’

29 September 2009


DSquared2, known for their fun, themed shows have nearly outdone themselves this season. This Milan Fashion Week, it’s all about ‘glamping’ (that’s glamorous camping if you were wondering!). Gordon Espinet for MAC explained all: ‘the whole collection is made for camping. It’s waterproof and outdoorsy which relates to the set, which is a tent in the woods. Just think about camping in the woods in the Glacier National Park in Canada and you’re there!’

For the make-up look, the girls were split into two camps (get it!). The butch outdoorsy types versus the more feminine girls. According to Gordon: ‘As they are camping, I didn’t want the girls to look like they were wearing make-up so we’ve used MAC’s pro face blend oils ad Fix+ spray to make their skin groomed and healthy.’ Brows were full and brushed up and the girly girls had mascara, a bit of bronzer on the cheek to sculpt and ‘Gentle Coral’ Lip conditioner. The best part? The plasters! ‘We wanted the girls to look like they’ve been scratched and cut whilst camping so we’ve put band-aides on their bodies in random places!’.


Sam McKnight for Pantene was creating the hair with yet another inspiring and wearable style. ‘It’s camping with a braid so we’ve plaited the girl’s hair, whether it be into three, two or one, they’re messy, pinned, destroyed and off the face.’ The hair had to have grip and body for the look so the hair was cleaned with shampoo and conditioner (some of the model’s hair was greasy from the show the night before) and then Pantene’s Volume Body Building volumizing mousse maximum hold was used to create the texture. If only camping really was like this, we’d be going every weekend!
