Day One of fashion week was all about reinventing the classics (excluding the Chromat show!). From chignons and half-up half-down styles to men's sport cuts. Check out MODERN's recap below at Tadashi Shoji, Chromat, Perry Ellis and Kempner.

This season, lead designer Becca McCharen was inspired by the intricate lines of artist Sol LeWitt’s wall drawings, which played a key role in determining the beauty look. Lead stylist Chuck Amos created a highly editorial look featuring a topknot and winding cornrows to compliment the clothes.

KEMPNER | Lead hair by: Amy Farid for Oribe Hair Care

The Spring/Summer 2015 collection for Kempner played with the idea of contrast, with shiny cocktail dresses against trench coats made from matte materials and exposed skin from python-printed haltered crop tops worn with a full-length silk jumpsuit. "We wanted to create a look that embodied both femininity and masculinity,” explained Key Hairstylist Amy Farid.

TADASHI SHOJJI | Lead hair by: Rodney Cutler for Redken | Nail and Makeup by: Butter London

At Tadashi Shoji's ethereal, Venice-inspired Spring/Summer 2015 collection, Rodney Cutler of Cutler Salon designed classic beautiful styles. The chignon gets a mini makeover with a braid at the nape of the neck. To compliment the sleek style, the Butter London makeup and nail team went for a flawless face and gold lattice nail art.
