Fall 2008 Fashion Week: Peter Som for Bill Blass Vibes to Photos from the Early 70s
"I was fascinated by the clothes, but also by the photographs, which are beautiful in themselves and tell so much about a place in time," Som told Style.com about his debut collection for Blass which was inspired by lookbooks from the house dating back to 1969 and 1970. To match the chick-power vibe of the clothes, makeup artist Tom Pecheux for MAC relied on a palette of shimmery plums, and eyes lined inside and out. Studio 54-ready fuschsia and bright orange blush in that seventies "V" created "a facelift with a brush," according to Pecheux, while blotted out lips made for a Brooke Shields look a la the 1978 cover of Interview.
