On Set with Emilio de la Morena
Cloud Nine enjoyed a sunny day on set with fashion designer Emilio de la Morena at his 2016 Resort Collection shoot to create an effortless hairstyle for his latest look book…
Our relationship with fashion designer to the stars Emilio de la Morena has been growing for some time, so it was only natural that the fashion designer enlisted Cloud Nine to create a hairstyle to fit with his new Resort 2016 Collection.
In keeping with the cutting edge feel of the collection and Emilio’s down to earth personality, the shoot took place in West London at the studio of Turner Prize nominated Spanish artist, Angela de la Cruz.
Angela’s studio was intimate and splattered with paint, which served as a great backdrop for Emilio’s stunning pieces and his striking model.
Cloud Nine Creative Ambassador, Leigh Keates, was on hand to style model Hyatt’s thick brown hair into an understated look, which complemented the garments she was wearing. And of course, Leigh was armed with his kit of must-have hair tools from the Cloud Nine range, including an Original Iron, a Wide Iron, the hairdryer, a Waving Wand and the Original Wand.
The finished look was so effortlessly elegant and easy, it had everyone on set eager to go home and try it out for themselves! Not only can this hairstyle be adapted for the office, it is versatile enough for an evening dinner with friends or a day out.
You can recreate Emilio’s effortless and minimalistic look for yourself by first roughly blow-drying your hair with a small handful of mousse. Next, set your Waving Wand to a low temperature; twist your hair around the barrel and roll up and down the mid-lengths of the hair. This smooths frizz and leaves a soft bend in the hair, as opposed to a set wave or curl.
After creating the accidental bun for Emilio’s AW15 Collection earlier this year at London Fashion Week, it was exciting for Leigh and Cloud Nine to be reunited with Emilio on this shoot and get a first peek at his gorgeous Resort 2016 Collection.
Emilio said: “I always love working with Leigh and Cloud Nine. The team and the products are great. For Resort 16, we wanted a soft, natural look and the Cloud Nine tools made styling easy!"
Oh and did we mention it was the hottest day of the year too? Sun and style in abundance - what more could you want?!
