Hair by Kevin Murphy at New York Fashion Week
Murphy took his sartorial inspiration from the iconic style of 1940’s Italian designer Elsa Schiaparelli.
“Schiaparelli wore lots of turbans so I decided to create a look where hair was wrapped around the head, mimicking the way you would wrap fabric around a head,” explains Murphy.
“Schiaparelli always wore her hair forward, so we borrowed this from her and emulated her silhouette giving it a modern twist. The triple barrel curling wand gave the wave a surrealist, almost corrugated effect,” he continued.
Kevin Murphy recently took his inimitable product line to the US market where it continues to grow from strength to strength.
