Carl Reeves SESSION.MASTER for KEVIN.MURPHY at MBFW 2013 in Stockholm

This year KEVIN.MURPHY SESSION.MASTER and European Creative Director Carl Reeves had the opportunity to be the hair director at MBFW in Stockholm for the Mes Dames and the Carin Wester’s runway shows. Immediately after the shows Carl took a few minutes of his busy schedule to answer some of our questions about the show.

MES DAMES RUNWAY SHOW

What was the inspiration behind Mes Dames collection? 

The designers muse for the season was a war time woman who was strong and passionate. Mes Dames has lots of structured pieces and shine in the fabrics so I wanted to bring all of those elements into play. I wanted the girl to look strong and still feminine.

The Look. 

The look for Mrs. Dames was a strong slick side part pushed behind the ears. From the front it looked like a short hair cut and it fell into a low tied pony tail to give elegance.

Which KEVIN.MURPHY products did you use to achieve this look? 

I used ANTI.GRAVITY gel though the hair from roots to ends and dried it in. I then clipped all hair into place to allow the shape to hold in place. Finishing with SESSION.SPRAY.

CARIN WESTER RUNWAY SHOW

What was the inspiration behind Carin Wester’s collection?

Carin love’s strong shapes partnered with sex appeal. Her feeling was Genghis Khan with the fur hats and fur prints.  For the hair she wanted the girls to be natural but with an odd edge to them. I decided to put a fringe on all the girls but only on one side.

The Look

For the hair Carin wanted the girls to be natural but with an odd edge to them. I decided to put a fringe on all the girls but only on one side. This gives them a strong feeling but also makes them look a little mad.

 Which KEVIN.MURPHY products did you use to achieve this look?

I used HAIR.RESORT SPRAY from roots to end to give the hair a ruff texture. I then twisted up the back into buns and pined. I heated the hair up which allowed the hair to have a beach feel once let out. Then I stuck a matching fringe into the right hand side of all girls and cut to length. Finishing with POWDER.PUFF for texture.
