Road trips across the country have forever been an American staple – from families taking vacations to themes of movies, subjects of photographers and now and inspiration in the world of fashion. In the case of Sylvie Millstein for Hellessey SS18, she drew on the great outdoors that lie between the iconic cities – specifically the desert. Colors indicative of an abandoned desert sunset and the inclusion of denim in the mix, which ultimately screams “American.”
“The collection is essentially Lauren Hutton on a trip through the Southwestern desert, celebrating the all American glamour but also the American woman’s free spirit and her love of travel. She’s not afraid to go on a trip through the Southwestern desert. I spent some time in the Utah desert recently and that really inspired my choice of fabrics and silhouettes this season.” – Sylvie Millstein, Hellessy Designer
As this aesthetic translates to beauty Hair Lead Matthew Curtis said, “The style reflects Hellessy’s feel of being loose and effortless – taking undone hair to a safari texture, like Joshua Tree – a relaxed nature, blow by the wind element.” Drawing from the natural look of season’s past – the hair was carefree, simple and understated elegance.
