PFW: Sophisticated mohicans at Issey Miyake

DAY 1, FRIDAY: A high-maintenance take on the punk classic at Issey Miyake.

Stylist Beauty and Features Writer Anita Bhagwandas is backstage at Paris Fashion Week to bring you the beauty trends for Spring/Summer 2014, as well as report the latest products, expert tips and insider gossip.

ISSEY MIYAKE: HAIR

Wella's super stylist Eugene Souleiman went for a natural post minimalist modern look that he's calling the sophisticated Mohican.

The girls all had long hair which was French twisted (we are in Paris after all) with a waterfall between the pleats.

"Is it easy to do yourself?" one journalist asked. "No," Eugene replied.

We can't imagine ever being able to create this at home.

ISSEY MIYAKE: MAKE-UP

We love Alex Box, and using an ethereal MAC palette she perfected a look she called a "a memory of make-up.

The skin is bathed in innocent white light that's delicate and pure. It's make up that's been applied and removed." Four neutrals are used to create a dewy wash to the eyes, kissing the skin in light.
