An inspired first look for the new season
Sassoon’s latest look, The Salon Collection ‘Form’ reflects how traditional French workwear labels have become a source of inspiration for many modern brands.
Le Mont Saint Michel, launched in 1913, just a few miles away from the famous abbey after which it was named,combined its factory with a school for young war widows. Vétra, whose first motto “Vétra ever lasts,” provided clothing for workers, who, at the time, were compelled to buy their own garments. Le Laboureur ‘The Ploughman’ founded in the early fifties in Burgundy France, continues to use inspiration from the oldest forms of clothing with local made materials and high quality fabrics. Today these iconic brands inspire international fashion.
In an age where collective action is usurping the cult of personality, celebrity-led fashion looks stale. The time is right for clothes and hair that represent authenticity and consistency; style that’s not trend-related and has stood the test of time. Overalls, dungarees, aprons and palazzo pants hold a modern beauty when fashioned out of fresh white linen and French navy cotton drill. Bringingtexture and versatility to the forefront and manipulating form from chic and controlled sophistication through to a celebration of the beauty of natural texture.
Natural and effortless results are achieved through honed techniques that appear invisible yet are intrinsic to the integrity of the looks. UK Assistant Creative Director Gareth Vance says, “Form is an authentic view on hair and fashion, creating effortless cut and coloured looks with precision”
This season’sColour Palette is inspired by the classic colours of workwear and its associated uniforms. Cool serge brown is applied to the interior shape with soft copper to the exterior. Chocolate brown is paired with damson red and claret; sandy blonde with dusty lilac and soft gold. UK Assistant Creative Director Gareth Vance says, “Sassoon colour training at its core is based upon craftsmanship, it’s exciting to see a move away from some of the freehand colouring. Our technicians are perfectly placed to deliver classic techniques.”
