The London Menswear Spring Summer 2016 shows were full of surprises again, and anything BUT boring, let us tell you! While ready to wear collections will of course not be as exuberant as the pieces on runway shows, it seems there will be some bold moves on the horizon for gents next spring!
Lots of great inspirations hair and make-up artists can play with in photo shoots (we can’t wait to use some of them in the next classes of our hair and make-up school!) A few of the highlights we loved:

Hello again fashion lovers, fellow hair and make-up artists and fashion professionals! In a few hours, Spring 2016 MENSWEAR collections will show on the runways in London. Even though menswear often stands in the shadow of the typically more creative and colorful women’s fashion, it’s quite interesting to observe what’s happening there too. And of course, for any fashion industry professional, knowing the current global trend inspirations is always relevant, whether they’re easily visible or appear in subtle nuances (as often is the case with men’s hair styling and fashion).
A few interesting glimpses from the last menswear fashion shows with the Fall Winter 2015 collections: Menswear FW 2015, Lee Roach. Eastern influence, asymmetrical
Menswear FW 2015: Oliver Spencer. Tweeds and patterns.
Menswear FW 2015: Xander Zhou. Fresh interpretation of western style.
Menswear FW 2015: Lou Dalton. minimalism, subtle details, hard and soft
Did you guys see the circus inspired fashion editorial in the recent Vogue Germany? The circus theme is such a great fashion shoot theme – so creative! We love it! (and yes, as you may know, this theme inspired our very own Bjoern von Rotz so much that he decided to use it as name for his Swiss hair and make-up school). Ready for some fierce and fabulous fashion shoot eye candy? Here goes!

For those of you who weren’t able to visit the 2015 Biennale Venice, we picked a few highlights which we found particularly interesting. Lets kick off the week with a bit of art, to infuse our work and our minds with fresh inspiration!
In the 400 year old Church of San Giorgio Maggiore, Spanish artist Jaume Pensa displayed “Together“, an installation of two large sculptures, engaging with each other and the surrounding impressive renaissance architecture in an intriguing discourse:
