Go backstage at Fendi Spring 2013 with designer Karl Lagerfeld, top model Cara Delevingne, makeup artist Peter Philips and hairstylist Sam McKnight.

Karl Lagerfeld always puts on a great show and his Fendi collections are always so modern, fresh and young. The inspiration for Fendi Spring 2013 was Memphis – the huge furniture movement of the 1980’s.  To capture that spirt hair stylist Sam McKnight created sharp aerodynamic hair that perfectly complimented the geometric clothes.

Peter Philips makeup brief was to include the colors of the collection, so he used the fabrics from the collection and glued it under the eyes.   As designer Karl Lagerfeld explained backstage after the show “It’s a total look. I have a vision – I have so many references in my mind – it’s like a huge Google storage in my mind, it’s  just something I felt.  It’s something very Italian, very Milano“.

We are in love with the the Fendi Spring collection especially all the cool accessories- from the new sunglasses to the shoes and designer Sylvia Fendi’s updated version of iconic Fendi Baguette bag.  Watch our fashion video and backstage at Fendi Spring 2013 here now.   Discover more online at Fendi.Com.

Chanel Spring 2013 by designer Karl Lagerfeld was the hot ticket of Paris fashion week. The show was staged at the magnificent Grand Palais des Champs-Elysées, one of the most historic sites in France. From giant icebergs to the apocalypse, the themes of the sets are always extraordinary. At Chanel, you can expect to see an unforgettable fashion show and a look that pushes fashion forward.

For Chanel Spring 2013 Karl Lagerfeld brought a whole new energy and vibe – installing 12 giant wind turbines with a solar panel runway to make his point that it’s time for a new mood of ease. With models wearing almost 100 different looks, there was an atmosphere of serenity and tranquillity on the enormous runway. The Chanel Spring 2013 collection was fresh, airy, light and modern.

As Karl explained after the show he wanted a Chanel collection that “you could identify in a second”, but there were no braids, bows, no chains and no logos in sight. The show was incredibly optimistic and the set underscored Karl’s vision of the future. “It’s all about energy”.

Go backstage at Paris fashion week and get the Look of Balmain by makeup artist Tom Pecheux and hair stylist Sam McKnight.  Olivier Rousteing’s fall 2013 collection for Balmain was electrifying – the broad shouldered jackets and dresses were full of embellishments and bold color so the beauty look was natural.

As Sam McKnight admitted backstage “the look of Balmain is a lot tougher this season”.  Slicked back, masculine hair gave the models a powerful rock and roll edge.  Makeup artist Tom Pecheux gave the models matte skin and well groomed stronger eyebrows – a look that has become a real trend for fall 2013.  Check out our Balmain Fall 2013 Backstage photo gallery here now.
