Backstage at the Fall Winter 2023-2024 show at Salle Pleyel during Men’s Fashion Week.
On Friday, January 20, Kenzo presented its Fall-Winter 2023-2024 collection at the Salle Pleyel in Paris. Artistic director Nigo’s tribute to the Beatles, whose hits the all-female quartet revisited, highlighted the parade. In the program, a mixed collection, where the wardrobe combining denim and knitwear is not taken seriously.
We have been busy backstage since early afternoon. Side haircuts, without standardization, remain in the DNA of the brand and the inspiration given by the creator.

The idea is to celebrate each model’s personality, as purser Anthony Turner, who designed the hair look for this new show, explained to us. Between the influences and lengths of the seventies, the hairdresser has imagined hairstyles according to each person’s personality and profile. And as a reference, in particular, it cites the series Scooby Doo! and his seventies cartoon.
For long hair, the hairdresser travels with the trend of the seventies. “Back then we wore very smooth long hair.” Hence the presence of several models adopting this look. Make way for brushing and straightening with the iconic Dyson Supersonic hair dryer and Dyson Corrale cordless straightener as allies. Another tool to have in your bathroom to reproduce the details of the show. A backcombing comb that, with its very thin handle, allows you to “define the parting really precisely and very firmly”.
But for Anthony Turner, the important thing is to respect everyone’s individuality. “There’s something very positive about seeing each model embrace their individuality.” What this show gives short squares, fringes, very graphic varnished hair… But also extremely smooth lengths like curls with sublimated springs.
Respect the individuality of hair for makeup
Make-up for the parade is provided by Make-up Forever under the patronage of purser Lucy Bridge. For all models, trend pure beauty it is appropriate. “The idea is to bet on really natural faces, a fresh complexion with light touches using a highlighter,” explains the make-up artist backstage. “And on some models and key areas, we add a very intense, glossy lip, but also a matte orange-red color.” All this with mascara and eyeliner on the lashes to accentuate the look.
A way to add a graphic touch to the face without going overboard.
