Autumn 2017 Runway Beauty Trends
Jason Wu may have come to fame when Michelle Obama wore one of his outfits at both of Barack’s inaugurations, but the designer has done what few other designers have been able to: juggled the creative duties of his signature brand and that of Hugo Boss Women’s Wear. He’s remained humble and charming while being thrust into the world spotlight. This month, he shares a peek into his fascinating world with the launch of his first luxe fragrance, aptly named Jason Wu Eau de Parfum. It’s a modern floral built around a jasmine heart.
Jason Wu isn’t the only brand unveiling blockbuster scents this month. Chanel returns with Gabrielle, Gucci unveils Bloom, Hermès debuts Twilly d’Hermès and Dior’s in-house perfumer Francois Demachy reworks a classic: Miss Dior. The quality of the fragrances arriving on counter this season is the best in years. It will be difficult to choose just one.
The eyes take center stage throughout September as the catwalk “art school eyes” trend arrives instore. You’ll find graphic stripes and lines are easy to replicate at home with the new liners, shadows and lash top coats. Just remember to keep the lips and complexion neutral if you plan to go bold with the eyes.
And for those who love board games, Paco Rabanne is offering a One Million-inspired version of Monopoly as a gift-with-purchase. It is perfect to pull out on a Sunday afternoon at a café. I hope you enjoy this issue.
