Leave it to the Italians to offer modern sophistication in a pinch. Today at Jil Sander and Bottega Veneta, both fashion houses presented solutions for Milan’s rainy weather, from the classics-with-a-twist collections to two takes on startlingly simple updos that were not short on personality. Riffing off of Jil Sander’s sinuous turtleneck dresses and exaggerated coats, Sam McKnight dreamed up a “sharp, perfect” and humidity-proof ponytail that, despite its commitment to excellence, wouldn’t require a studied hand to recreate. If the slicked-back effect was the result of generous helpings of mousse, serum, and spray, it will undoubtedly find its real world translation in fresh-from-the-shower and post-workout excursions. After all, the wet effect, he explained, “adds drama.”
Those looking to extend their blowouts will find their answer at Bottega Veneta, where Tomas Maier’s long lean lines were echoed in close-to-the-head, center-parted knots. The handiwork of hairstylist Guido Palau, the architectural twists gave an instant dash of poise to the bangs, blondes, brunettes, and redheads walking the runway—even making model Binx Walton’s recent dip-dyed bleach job (also courtesy of Palau) look decidedly polished with the finger-raked style. As if the cheekbone-enhancing route to surviving the third day of your shampoo cycle wasn’t alluring enough, Palau added, “it’s a super simple, super modern updo that every woman [can] do.” And we will.
