Posted Jan 18, 2016
Rozanne Verduin takes us on a ride through the decades in “Neorromantismo” by Frederico Martins for Vogue Portugal, February 2016. Defining lines set the stage by giving us a crash course in creative couture. Stylist, Paulo Macedo, mixes a wild array of dizzying designs with avant-garde upgrades from looks that include Chanel, Valentino, Miu Miu and Gucci. Graphic display gets us psyched for the 60’s, with showstopping pants sprinkled with stars. Bohemian rhapsody goes with the flow while 70’s soul falls just this side of funky. As crazy shades set the stage, priming cool colors to pop off the page. The 80’s has arrived with a bang bringing over-the-top tones that tickle our senses. This crisp editorial invites the fluid side of fashion to form, from grunge ridden 90’s to 2000 and beyond. Beauty basks in the glory of gorgeous as Cristina Gomes dallies in the diversity of skin shaping techniques. Purrr-fect cat eyes fill the bill with liquid liner that delivers the decade’s most prolific makeup. Inviting a new point of reference, black smudges into infinite with fallout that moves through the extreme. Gorgeous green gathers steam as haute pink dares to scream. Facial Art floods the lids busting over the brow and into another dimension. Richness reflects on the dominance of the mouth, leaving Bordeaux and red to cover the lips in excess. Miguel Viana creates backcombed hair that bumps up to the sky as high-rise ponytails get caught on the fly. This story celebrates the act of time travel, from afro-ecstatic energy to the free-flowing look of hippi-chic. A dream inside a dream – Rozanne goes from floral coiffure to giant lettuce leaves worn like a modern chapeau – reminding us true fashion is found in the imagination.
