Light. Time & Color

The four looks released this month as part of the Light. Time & Color collection from Davines, are all about colour. Tom Connell, hair art director at the brand worked closely with Ashleigh Hodges to capture the colours that inspired him. These are his descriptions of each:

Ocean Pacific Green

A specific shade of green, the most difficult colour to obtain, combined with a slightly golden sand tone. The influences are many: from punk to the 80s, taking up an iconic look by David Bowie. But the colour is a tribute to the Danish artist Olafur Elìasson

First Light

A shape that refers to Japanese architecture whose raw material is wood, in a warm beige tone. Every time you look at it a new detail emerges: the exaggerated bangs, a twisted knot, decisive undercut. A further influence comes from the world of fashion and from a famous headdress by Alexander McQueen.

Last Light

The authentic tone of copper metal and the last lights of the day: vibrant. The shape refers to the 70s, to the ruffled hair of skaters, taken up by exaggerating the shapes. Short and heavy on the front, long on the shoulders.

Colorado Topaz

A particular shade of topaz, which exists in nature only in Colorado and the translucent coat of the Akhal-Teke horses are the colour inspiration that accompanies this geometric and disjointed portrait that does not seem to belong to the same figure.
