The Future Brow is Now in Sebastian Kim’s exotic editorial ‘Asia & Me’ for the February issue of Vogue Russia. Stef van der Laan is a vision of futuristic beauty in this luscious layout that fuses traditional Asian influences with hyper-modern makeup and styling. Taking the concept of the kimono to the next level, stylist Ekaterina Mukhina introduces us to a new generation of silk wraps and draped sheaths from designers including Balenciaga, Chanel, Jean-Paul Gaultier, Lanvin, Christopher Kane and 3.1 Phillip Lim. Taking giant leaps forward, innovative advances propel these looks from classic to cutting-edge, with experimental beauty techniques that dare to break this Spring’s trend barriers. Makeup artist, Rose-Marie Swift, delivers a dynamic version of Spock-Shaped eyebrows, so revolutionary, I can actually feel the momentum shift happening, while hair-stylist, Rutger, goes for an updated Flock of Seagals faux-hawk (leaps & bounds above the original). Feel the power of Retro-Modern move through this editorial igniting the style spark for an East meets West Epoch-Explosion.
