The latest collection from Lisa Polini is a stunning representation of creative colour, precision cutting and textured styling. These are strong looks that still exude femininity, and we love them.
Lisa explains that her inspiration for the collection came from the East Asian Myth The Thread of Fate. According to the legend, the old lunar matchmaker would tie an invisible red cord around the ankles of those destined to meet. Lisa and her team have definitely captured this sense of mysticism with the choice of models, artfully placed accessories and, of course, the wistful shades of colour.
The colour palette for the collection incorporates hues of Asian-inspired yellow-gold, similar to the metal used to create traditional jewellery, along with cool-based earth tones. Colour blocking was applied intermittently to accentuate strong lines, while soft, blended high and low lighting techniques have been used to give maximum texture and dimension within the internal structure.
“The shading between light and dark exaggerates the strength of the forms within the hair and gives both dimension and structure to each look. The combined looks are strong but with a hint of softness to them to create a depth and romance marrying the selected palette together.”
We are definitely blown away by the beautiful use of colour and the inspiration behind these powerful looks. Big shout out to the team behind this beautiful collection:
