Spring 2013 marked menswear master Antonio Azzuolo’s first foray into womenswear and three seasons in, the Montreal-born designer is hitting his stride.
Using textiles from Vienna and a fine “respect for sartorial tradition and craftsmanship”, his Fall 2014 collection showcased menswear-inspired (obvi!) wool coats nipped in with self belts to highlight the female form that Antonio, whose father was a tailor, called his “couture coats” – they take four to six weeks to make.
Heavily textured sweaters that could work on both gals and guys and crisp white expertly tailored shirts rounded out the collection.
Backstage, Pantene hair pro Justin Germain whipped up “model hair” or what normal girls would consider a dream – very loose, very unstructured waves that look like they require nothing but a pillow and some finger tousling upon waking.
Starting with Pantene’s Moisture Whip for silky strands, Justin curled model’s look only at the midsection – leaving the roots and ends to fend for themselves, followed up a quick break up of waves with his fingers and voila, model hair!
