PRADA
Fall/Winter 2015

 

Hair by Guido, Redken Global Creative Director

 

Putting a twist on the classic Prada look, Redken Global Creative Director Guido created a young, sophisticated updo adorned with beautiful jeweled barrettes for the Fall/Winter 2015 runway show in Milan. Recreating the look from Prada’s Men’s show, Guido used Redken’s Stay High 18 high-hold gel to mousse and Fashion Work 12 versatile working spray to pull the hair into a high, tight updo. Then, Guido hand-placed Prada’s bejeweled barrettes on each model for the perfect finishing touch.

 

“The look at Prada this season is really a redux of the hair that I created at the Men’s show, but this version is a little bit cleaner and very young, but in a sophisticated way. There’s always an offness to the classic beauty of Prada, and that’s the feeling that we achieved with this style. It has a slightly 50’s or 60’s kind of feeling, which is always Prada-like, but it’s still very modern and sort of futuristic. I used Redken’s Stay High 18, which is a very strong gel to mousse formula, to blow dry the hair up against the roots to pull it into this very high ponytail in the middle of the head. Then, I covered the elastic securing the ponytail with a piece of hair, and flipped the hair over into this little updo, holding it in place with the jeweled barrettes. I finished the style with Redken’s Fashion Work 12 hairspray to clean the hair up and hold the style in place. The loose ends of the ponytail give you that feeling of youngness and easiness, which adds to the modernity of the look.”
Guido, Redken Global Creative Director

Recognized worldwide as a leader in luxury hospitality, Bellagio has begun the remodel of all 403 suites in the resort’s main tower. This marks the final phase of an approximately $165 million investment into the newly designed rooms and suites that began in 2011.

 

After redesigning 2,568 Resort Rooms in the Bellagio Tower in 2011, the AAA Five Diamond resort followed up with a remodel of all 928 Resort Rooms and suites in its Spa Tower in 2012. The completion of the remaining suites in the Bellagio Tower is expected by February 2015.

 

“We want to ensure that all of our guests enjoy the same exquisite luxury and design  Bellagio is known for the world over, no matter which room or suite they may choose,” said Randy Morton, president and COO of Bellagio. “A great deal of thought went into every element of these spaces and we’re thrilled to begin the final phase of this project.”

 

Created by the talented MGM Resorts International Design Group, the suites will offer refined furnishings with high-style surfaces such as lacquer and exotic wood graining as well as sumptuous fabrics influenced by modern fashion. Key design elements and color themes will be consistent with the recently unveiled suites in the Spa Tower, along with a new color palette of spring greens and Dragonfruit pink meant to promote rejuvenation of the spirit.

 

Remodeled suites in the Bellagio Tower will be available for reservation for stays beginning early November by calling 702.693.7111 or visiting bellagio.com .

Jaquet Droz’ Enchanted Journey Exhibit kicks off at The Shops at Crystals

Jaquet Droz

AQUET DROZ’ ENCHANTED JOURNEY EXHIBIT KICKS OFF IN LAS VEGAS


As part of a world tour to celebrate 275 years of history, Jaquet Droz brings the Enchanted Journey Exhibit this fall to The Shops at Crystals in Las Vegas. After tremendous success in Moscow, Basel, Shanghai, Hong Kong and Macau, the Jaquet Droz masterpieces arrived in the US allowing this sophisticated audience to appreciate all the facets of Swiss watchmaking and understand how the brand manages to preserve its heritage.

This journey through time sheds light on the relationship between Classic 18th century and contemporary works. Timeless icons, unique automatas and exclusive models from its artistic workshop, reveal the beauty of hand engraved and miniature painted legendary timepieces. The most innovative timekeeping mechanisms sit side-by-side with the simple elegance of enamel or the luster of precious stones and pearls, and magnificent minerals used in custom-made dials.

The exhibition, officially opened last Tuesday, September 30, is being held in front of the Tourbillon Boutique. On the opening day visitors had the chance to see a Jaquet Droz master painter in action, doing demonstrations of the skillful artistry of hand engraving and miniature painting on watch dials.

These most outstanding Jaquet Droz creations can be admired until November 12th, 2014, after which they will travel to the Middle East and Europe.

 

About Jaquet Droz Since it was first established in 1738, Jaquet Droz has perpetuated the spirit of innovation and aesthetic refinement of its founder, Pierre Jaquet-Droz. This ingenious inventor and man of uncommon vision conquered the royal courts of Europe and China with his stunning creations: fabulous humanoids automata and precious musical watches. Since Jaquet Droz joined the Swatch Group in 2000, it has continued its never-ending quest to perpetuate the history and expertise of its founder. The manufacture’s spirit is intact after nearly three centuries, as attested by its unique products characterized by exceptional craftsmanship. Jaquet Droz remains true to its time-honored goal, namely, to push back the limits of the watchmaker’s art for your greater pleasure.

Redken’s MFW FW 2014 Prada Recap

redken

 

PRADA
FALL – WINTER 2014

Hair by Guido, Redken Creative Consultant

 

The hair for Prada is actually identical to the look Redken Creative Consultant Guido created for the eight women that were featured in the men’s show. The Fall/Winter 2014 women’s wear show was meant to be a continuation or a second act to the men’s show, so the continuity of the hairstyles helped bridge the two collections together. Guido coated the hair from root to ends with flex move ability 05 and then used his hands, rather than a comb, to gather the hair into a low, tight bun.

“The Prada look features a very basic idea of hair. The ballerina-esque bun is minimal, imperfect and really shows off the model’s unique features. I was inspired by Visconti films and ballerina dancers, who are often incredibly elegant but severe in many ways. Dancers always work with severity, which is why there is tightness to the hairstyle. Each of these girls is their own character, and I think the performance hair and makeup, paired with the Prada collection, makes it seem as if the dancers have changed their clothing, but left their hair and makeup untouched. There is something very elegant and sophisticated about this narrative.” -Guido, Redken Creative Consultant

Redken Products Used – Collection:

Apply flex move ability 05 section by section from root to ends

 Gather hair with fingers to create a tight low ponytail

 Secure hair with elastic
