FASHION WEEK: Rene Furterer at Kate Spade
It was Swinging London supermodel Jean Shrimpton who inspired the fashion, hair and make-up at the intimate presentation of the Kate Spade New York fall 2011 collection on February 15. Think Jean Shrimpton meets Grace Kelly for Breakfast at Tiffanyâs. âWe took direction from the iconic photographs taken by David Bailey of his most famous muse, Jean Shrimpton, so the overall look definitely has a mod â60s vibe,â said the showâs fashion stylist Brad Goreski.
From a little black dress with a romantically ruffled neckline to swingy silhouettes in an explosion of bright lipstick colors, to ladylike cardigans and nipped-in, beautifully cut trench coats, Creative Director Deborah Lloydâs collection captured what Kate Spade New York is renowned for: âretro debutante chic.â
The nod to Carnaby Street started at the top, with hair playfully coiffed into Shrimpton-style loose waves and side ponytails by celebrity stylist Matthew Monzon of Exclusive Artists Management. To create his fresh, modern take on mod style, Matthew and his team relied on RenÃ© Furterer products.
âThe interpretation is sexy, but a little looser than Shrimptonâs style. And because the make-up by make-up Artist Romy is such a LOOKâblack liquid liner and bright coral lipsâwe kept the hair easy and free.â
