Aiden Xydis for evo created apocalyptic sand storm hair for TEN PIECES at Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week Australia 2016
Teaming up with Ten Pieces designers, Maurice Terzini and Lucy Hinckfuss, Aiden Xydis for evo®, created apocalyptic, Mad Max inspired looks to compliment the deconstructed knits and neutral tones in the collection.
The hair team was a family affair, with Renya Xydis directing the women’s look for Cloud Nine while her son, Aiden Xydis of The Men’s Grooming Room styled the men’s look for evo®.
“Just like the collection’s muted tones, we wanted the guy’s hair to look quite matte. Using their natural shape as a base, we applied evo haze texturizing powder and worked it through the hair for that chalky, dusty sand storm look.”- Aiden Xydis.
Keeping in theme, ten looks from the collection were showcased on ten models in head-to-toe layered block colours within the cavernous sound studios at Sydney’s iconic Fox Studios. The three and a half minute video filmed in the Australian desert served as a dramatic backdrop for the Ten Pieces MBFWA resort collection.
“Influenced by sportswear, our unisex approach for TEN PIECES is to create street-ready, interchangeable pieces for people who desire contemporary, yet comfortable clothing fitting for their busy lives.” – Lucy Hinckfuss
