We’ve always been a little wary of foam parties (remember all those rumors about STDs being spread at college foam parties? Because we do!) but the scene-stealing foam-cum-cloudscape scene at Rick Owens SS13 show—a wall of falling foam that turned into a floor of suds, like an incredibly chic washing machine gone bezerk—was something else entirely.

Backstage, the Gustav Klimt/Egon Schiele-inspired hair was achieved via Luigi Murenu’s frizzed out, middle-parted, Grace Coddington-taken-a-few-steps-beyond sculpted wigs, while Lucia Peroni’s focus was to create a “blank radiance,” by blending MAC Face and Body Foundation with Face and Body White for a pallid, powdered finish (she pressed a fingertip of MAC’s Pro Longwear Lipstick in Perpetual Flame into the center of the mouths, in an effort to prevent the models from looking “dead"). "It's all about the hair," Lucia laughed, and it was. Each wig was shaped with a razor, coated in L'Oréal Elnett hairspray (oh, we do love a good ol' classic!) and flattened on top by Luigi's own two hands. "Owens has a strong vision," he noted. And speaking of a hands-on approach, underneath the wigs (the shapes of which Luigi described as "angels and nuns"), the models wore chicly flattened chignons rather than the more typical wig caps. The only thing left to wonder: when can ITG wig-out again?

    This was such a breath-taking (and memorable) show. Those wigs are just another step towards dramatic perfection, along with the falling foam wall (minus the STD's, of course). And, as always, your coverage of the show is wonderful ITG.

    Can anyone ID the woman's cardigan on photo 7? It's SO beautiful.

    Speaking of STDs, I wish you guys would cover Lena Dunham! She's so witty and I am sure would make for a great interview!

  • Jennifer Monforton

    Lots of structural wigs on the runway this season! Not sure if I'm liking the look of it, but it does add something interesting! I do really like the background on the runway here, though. Stunning!

      Right? They should do a post of the ITG team with the wigs on, just like the one they did with the Theysken's Theory wigs.
