Dmitri Papas’ ‘Labyrinth’ collection celebrates technique, style and popular culture, presenting a range of looks with variation in cutting. Shot and conceived in London it is inspired by the “energy and history of the city.”
Dmitri notes that the collection was influenced by icons such as David Bowie and Vivienne Westwood – the looks convey the strength and courage to stand out from the crowd.
“As short hair is the hardest and most difficult to control, the collection demonstrates a mastery of shape and was
designed with minimal post-production to showcase hair as it is in real life,” Dmitri says.
Model 1 shows a classic timeless line with tight graduation, highlighting technique for fine hair.
Model 2 presents textured and disconnected shapes showing the manipulation of straight hair with movement and feel.
Model 3 is all about disconnection, graduation and layering in very short hair.
Labyrinth highlights the hair, with a stark background and dramatic makeup to really bring the message home.
