With punk references cited as inspiration at several shows including Ginger & Smart, Manning Cartell and Zimmermann, it made sense that as well as pops of colour, we were going to see a Mohawk or two. Now, traditional Mohawks may be a polarising style that’s not really suitable for the office but Fashion Week showcased some more wearable ways to take on the trend. From Zimmermann’s rag curls to Whitney Eve & We by Whitney Port’s Mohican hybrid braid, take a closer look at how the Mohawk was updated for the upcoming season.
It was punk meets Parisian elegance backstage at Jean Paul Gaultier for Paris Haute Couture Fashion Week Spring 2011. The mane (wo)man, Odile Gilbert, was the master eye behind visually stunning creations that included cornrows, mohawks, feathers, finger waves and rockabilly bangs as seen on model of the moment Lindsey Wixson. Our favourite, Monsieur. Tom Pecheux was on-hand to keep things "aggressive chic", extending the winged liner out until it practically touched models pencilled brows and pairing it with a creamy, blood red lip.
