The weather may be miserable and grey but we have all the colour dose you need today! It’s coming straight from the Trésor collection by Juan Ayoso, AIPP avant-garde 2020-21 finalist and International Visionary Awards avant-garde 2020-21 finalist.

Trésor is inspired by French pirate women of the golden age of the Corsi, between the 17th and 18th century.Juan explains:No children or women were allowed on the ship. If a man were found seducing anyone of the opposite sex and took her in disguise, he would suffer death. For pirates, a woman on board meant bad luck and conflict. However, as the Roberts code reflects, their masculinity often led sailors to pass off their lovers as companions.”

Hair colours and makeup are inspired by gemstones and pirate treasures; gold, jewels, precious stones or very rare relics for which many corsairs gave their lives.

In the hair textures we wanted to reflect burnt wood chips and ship’s ropes with offset volumes, giving it a baroque touch, where a very modern French pirate woman can be seen” Juan adds.

Unexpected, edgy, impactful, dreamy – we love it!
