City Pulse

By Sarah Jung

Jeremy Laing’s Fall 2013 collection epitomizes a Japanese sensibility. The oversized silhouettes are sculptural with sophisticated color tones. Textured gold lame outerwear and trousers are layered with large geometric tribal prints. The graphic prints are a collaboration with the artist Vanessa Maltese. The funnel neck tunics, tweed patchwork, and silk sack dresses drape and layer over one another for mix-matched appeal. The fabrics are washed and distressed for a slouchy, lived in feeling.

To complement the textures and long silhouettes of the clothing, Stylist Ramona Eschbach (at Jed Root for Oribe Haircare) creates a clean and casual hairstyle that is tucked into the high collars. To prep and create texture, she uses Oribe Foundation Mist ($23 at Barneys). Then the hair is separated into two sections; the bottom section is French-braided and pinned in place to get rid of bulk. It also creates a sculptural shape in the back when the remaining hair is pulled into a half ponytail. The front pieces naturally fall out for easy elegance.

For those with puffy hair, Ramona adds Royal Blowout Heat Styling Spray ($49 at Barneys), a serum with a glossy shine.

Makeup artist Serge Hodonou echoes the Japanese sculptural influence with a beautiful, graphic line in Print Satin by MAC ($15 at swept from the top of the eyelids to the browbone. This monotone grey color is highlighted with slight hints of gold and brown. The makeup is neutral and minimal with high impact.

The inner part of the lips are tinged in subtle deep wine color: Burgundy Lipmix by MAC ($15 at The look is bold and forward for that urban space-age bohemian.
