Colección 2012 Electrum de Barney Gleeson para Lee Preston Hairdressing

ELECTRUM {ih-lect-truhm}

n. a naturally occurring alloy of silver and gold.

The ‘Electrum’ Collection is the evolution of many ideas and is unlike any collection I have done in the past.

I really wanted to push myself into a new direction with this collection... blurring the lines between wearable, editorial and avant guard hair.

As with most of my work, texture is a key element in the collection.

With ‘Electrum’ I really wanted to explore the combination of components... control, flyaway and raw textures.

There is a strength in the femininity of the images as I wanted to portray warrior like characters in the collection.

Whilst the femininity is undeniable, there is a heroic nature present.
This can be seen in the shapes and styles created for the collection.
There is a ceremonial element; alluding to helmets and headpieces.
Like many historical figures, the characters in ‘Electrum’ are modern Amazon warriors... both strong and true.

The gold and silver leafing used in the collection adds to this idea, exploring hair as an adornment.

Slicking sections to tighten shapes allows the texture, wind and movement
to tell the story.

Braided and roped detail were used to contain and shape the skull, gilded with leaf to add a reflective component.

I wanted to keep the styling and makeup very simple.

The gilding was used on a natural base to emphasise the technique in the hair.

Leather and sheer fabrics were used to give form and strength to the body.

Like an armour, the styling hugs the female form.
