It’s not the first time we present Florian Dovillez’s work. Yatzer presented his first collection back in June 2011 for which Dovillez prepared extravagant hairpieces in monochromatic tones made of real human hair (read more here). This time he presents his second collection 'Coup de Theatre' which is well crafted, with a sharp and clear concept. When we first saw Dovillez’s new collection, the film: ‘Stage Beauty’ directed by Richard Eyre instantly came to our mind. The film, which explores the story of a young female theatre dresser who wishes to become an actress in an age when males played all theatrical parts, touches upon the themes that Dovillez’s collection is portraying.
His collection may not be based on London’s theatres during the 1660s but his concept is strongly influenced by this era. The pictures, which were taken by Riki Tinoza, capture the essence of the collection with all theatrical aspects beautifully exposed. For this second collection, Dovillez continues to use hair. Here, Goldwell’s Ellumen colorings were used to achieve multiple shades in the hair, which were used to accessorize the male models. He also created two stunning masks to symbolize the theatrical inspirations of his collection. Finally, the shiny necklaces with their metallic tones also enhance the look of the models whose pale skins are beautifully decorated.
