Picture this: marble walls all around, crystal chandeliers high above, and fresco-covered ceilings gleaming down. Deep inside this Baroque castle is where the latest trends are coming to life. Rooted in history and decadence, this modern day fantasyland brings eight new colours to life. Decadence and individuality are at the foreground of KEVIN.MURPHY’S latest collection – CRYSTAL.TWILIGHT.
Speaking to this fantasy location, Murphy said, “I was inspired by the opulence of the crystal ballroom and the mix of textures on the marbled walls. The oversized chandeliers reflected light that made me think about colour and creating a crystal-like shine.”
When light passes through crystal it casts a rainbow of never ending colour. This is where the inspiration for the collection was drawn. A delicate dance of shades – elegance and fearlessness shine through as seamlessly as the colours blend within the hair. Keep reading to learn more about each of these distinctive colours.
