Runway Trend: Spring Leather

The spring sun is finally beginning to grace us with its presence, but don’t put your favourite leather pieces into hibernation for the warmer months just yet. The plethora of luxe leather sent down the Spring/Summer 2016 runways has left us feeling inspired, so we’re looking to the catwalk for new ways to rock leather over the trans-seasonal months of spring.

Backstage Beauty: Dior Spring/Summer 2016

Luminous, flawless skin dominated the runway at the Spring/Summer 2016 fashion weeks in Paris, New York, Milan and London. Dior’s recent show was no exception, with Creative and Image Director, Peter Philips, using Diorskin Star fluid foundation to perfect his canvas before bring lids and lips to life with pastel shades of pink.  “I wanted to create a very “glowy” makeup look, based on an idea of transparency and softness, in harmony with the pastel tones in Raf Simons’ collection. It’s diaphanous beauty with a hint of hidden eroticism,” emphasises Peter Philips.
