MBFWA: Michael Lo Sordo Spring/Summer 13-14

Regarded as one of the most anticipated shows at this year's Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week Australia, everyone was excited to inspect his thoughtfully constructed Spring/Summer 13-14 designs. Held on Wednesday 10th April 2013 the story contained a palette of mostly black, white, cobalt and pale blue - colours which have had a strong presence in many SS13 collections to date. But as the saying goes, the difference is in the detail and sheer fabrics were meshed with tailored pants, frills and peplum tops. The palette is truly beautiful and the designs are beautiful, relaxed and easy to wear. The only thing we did not love: the casual pool slide sandals by Nike as they tended to cheapen what is a fabulous collection.

Hair: was directed by Richard Kavanagh for Redken. The low-slung ponytail was soft and simple, with flyaways to give the finished result a relaxed, easy to achieve look.

Makeup: was directed by Nigel Stanislaus for Maybelline, who described the look as a runway convent girl with Brooke Shields' brows. "Cheeks are flushed over an innocent skin finish and lips enjoy a strong focus that is telling of a women coming of age", said Nigel.

Nails: were soft and playful thanks to the creative team at Essie. Using Bikini So Teeny and Chinchilly, the two-toned look was described by Essie as “a mix of modern and playful tones in a geometric design to offset the relaxed and fluid style of Michael Lo Sordo’s collection.”

We adore the pale blue tones! Do you like Michael Lo Sordo's collection?
