New collections developed by the International Sassoon Creative Team at the world renowned Sassoon Academy, London.
For over 60 years, the reputation of Sassoon Academy has been built on developing and providing world-class education.
When Vidal Sassoon opened his first salon at 108 Bond Street, London in 1954 the teased bouffant and beehive dominated hair fashion.
The 21st century and global recession had considerable effect on fashion trends with consumers eschewing fleeting fashion changes in favour of heritage brands with a backstory.
Underpass; Inspired by Brutalism, a style that hit its peak in the 1970s, provided an uncompromising vision; it’s stripped back and honest ‘streets in the sky’ including London’s Trellick Tower by Erno Goldfinger celebrated the sculptural form of concrete.
There is beauty in the purity of Brutalist architecture – it’s clear in its form without any applied decoration. This season, inspiration is drawn from the Brutalist city and the freedom found down in the raw concrete of its underpasses. Austere architecture is subverted by graffiti and the physicality of skaters and free runners who make the space their own.
