City Pulse

By Jan Lee

Seeing twenty or so (insert your favorite 007 agent here)s strutting down the runway was an eyeful. With the James Bond action scene music bumping, Andrew Buckler set the mood for his men’s collection of futuristic bright colored suits, separates and swimsuits in his Spring 2008 Buckler show. I don’t know why, but the artificial weapons strapped to some of the models sculpted legs and arms had me a bit…shaken and stirred.

Inspired by Jude Law in the move A.I., Mark Edio for M.A.C. explains that the look is “very artificial, very mannequin, plastique looking.” He used base products to get a fluidity of skin tone from the face down to the chest. Using bronzer, he softly highlighted the face where the light naturally hits it, like the T-zone and right below the eye, instead of where you would normally apply a highlighter.

The hair, like in many other shows this season, was all about the individual models. Wigs cut loose near one eye were worn with the bright pieces. “Weighted long shapes are really in right now,” says Rusk Education Director Angela Greenland. A sleek James Bond ‘do complimented the pieces in the neutral tones.
