Anyone who’s ever worked on set at a photo shoot knows that the best inspiration comes from being in the moment. Last strokes of genius and final touches are what make the difference between a well-executed shoot and a goose-bump-inducing collection.
Created by the ambience on set and influenced by music and the vision, thoughts, memories and attitudes of the creators, the excitement of behind-the-scenes is the starting point of Backstage Fall/Winter 2009, La Biosthetique’s latest collection. With a wild mix of cuts and styles, this collection features a graphic hairstyle referred to as the b–bop. Inspired by the coolness of Miles Davis, b–bop is angular, hard and strong, and speaks to the need to marching to the beat of your own drum.
Next, the look Versus represents a clash of many styles. From 1980s disco curls to ethno’s wild, curly manes, untamed hair represents diversity and entwining cultures to create a new and unique look. The flowing, free movements of wild, unstructured curls and glamorous volume characterize the Flame. Finally, Envy is not only inspired by the mood of French New Wave cinema, but it is also in keeping with a Parisian version of sexiness, in which the head is celebrated as the most erogenous zone of the body.
