At Stresemann we pride ourselves in always pushing our work beyond the walls of our salon, this way we always keep up to date with latest trends and the innovation in hair. Because after all, We Are Our Hair.
This Dazed brief came from ‘Mastered’ in connection with Sam McKnight (in case you don’t know, is the hair stylist behind the Chanel, Vivenne Westwood, Dries van Noten, Max Mara and Fendi campaigns you see in the pages of your favorite magazines) and read as follows ‘Bold Sequince Party’.
This brief was then beautifully captured by Suzana Holtgrave in her Berlin home, where she called upon Lena Quist for the clothing to fit the story. Holtgrave’s vision was inspired by a Bowiesque aesthetic, before the passing of the artist. Which makes this a prophetic piece, upon completion living up to its unaware relevance. The story is now also to be published in March Issue of Kaltblut Magazine.
Bjoern Hartung proved exceptional skill in accomplishing the perfect hair artistry for the brief, inspired by Gareth Pugh Runway SS16 Ready To Wear and the late great legend of drag DIVINE. Bjoern also received a certificate of achievement after a 16 week program led by Sam McKnight where the challenges where often projects like this shoot.
