Keiichi Muramatsu’s “Secret Flowers”
Yes ladies and gentlemen, your eyes do not deceive you, those are in fact little, chocolate colored roses sprouting from the tops of models heads! When it comes to Tokyo Fashion Week you can always expect to see both the fabulous and the strange, making it the ultimate hot-spot (in my opinion) for some amazing backstage beauty. Over the weekend, Everlasting Sprout designer Keiichi Muramatsu unveiled his Autumn/Winter collection entitled “My Secret Flowers,” and his “flowers” were nothing short of enchanting.
Whether you love the eccentricity that has become a staple of both the Japanese fashion and beauty industry, there is no denying the artistic genius behind the shows. Keiichi’s creations were not only beautiful but the quirky hair and makeup added a fantastical element that gave the whole collection a definite story- which is seldom seen in many shows these days. Each model looked nearly identical with their matching auburn, bob-styled wigs that, for most, were topped with delicate roses while others wore adorable, black hats covered in green and pink blossoms. For makeup, their complexions were pale and smooth creating a doll-like illusion that was starkly contrasted by red, hot eyeshadow. It was like watching an army of porcelain dolls march through some fashion fantasy filled with amazing knits and drool-worthy shoes. This is brilliant example of how you can do an unusual beauty look that actually works with the collection itself. Props to Keiichi Muramatsu!
