Skyline, Dior’s Parisian inspiration for fall 2016
It is time for the start of the new school year and the talented Peter Philips, like many schoolchildren, seems to be back at school benches, or rather those of his large office in the Dior workshops. Indeed, the summer is not over yet as the brand is already unveiling its new collection for fall 2016. It is called Skyline and has a very Parisian inspiration associated with an elegant and sober style. , halfway between shadow and light. Everything is in the image of Peter Philips, brilliantly combining natural elegance and the quest for new experiences.
A tribute to French elegance according to Dior
The Dior house was created in 1945 by Christian Dior. The latter offered his very first boutique at 30, avenue Montaigne, a prestigious address among all, located in the heart of the French capital and having seen the birth of the very first fashion show of the Dior brand. Also, in this fall 2016, with the Skyline collection, this is a tribute to Paris. It must be said that Dior has always been particularly attached to our beautiful City of Light.
This is why the make-up of the Skyline range all echoes one of the most emblematic buildings of this city, recognized worldwide for its extraordinary cultural heritage: the Eiffel Tower. For example, Skyline’s eye shadow collection is embellished with patterns similar to the monument’s iron mesh. Everything is very architectural and clearly aims to offer us a digest of luxury and French elegance. Thus, it is a little of the heritage and the soul of the house of Dior that is offered to us and that will come to rest on your skin.
Skyline, an elaboration resulting from the genius of Peter Philips
Skyline was entirely sewn by the hands of Peter Philips. This unusual character is today considered one of the best makeup artists on the planet . He has collaborated with the biggest stars in the world as well as with sacred monsters of contemporary photography. He also managed the make-up department of the biggest fashion houses such as Chanel and now Dior. However, this outstanding designer remains very simple and his sobriety is absolutely charming. Also, this is exactly what we find in the Skyline collection.
This one is bold without going overboard. It is perfectly anchored in the zeitgeist and is located halfway between shadow and light. As Peter Philips explains, the Skyline woman has a “personality who aspires to explore all possibilities, who likes to play with illusions. A daring, feminine woman, connected to her time. This new make-up plays on the intensity of contrasts, radiance and transparency. Finally, note that everything is directly inspired by professional makeup techniques, allowing you to naturally display the contours of your face, making it more sculpted than ever.
