Continuing the 65th anniversary of Sassoon, our new collection is the first of two visual journeys that will explore the unique connection between the Sassoon philosophy and The Bauhaus school of art and design who are currently celebrating their 100 year anniversary.
This first collection is an imagistic assessment of perhaps its most underrated members, the Bauhausmädels. The female Bauhaus students who were early pioneers of gender equality, they challenged the conventions of the day to become pivotal artists in the creation of Bauhaus style.
“We discovered a group of unique trailblazers” Says Mark Hayes, Sassoon International Creative Director, “They courageously eluded traditional gender roles to build a different, creative future. Their unbridled spirit and individualistic image has directly influenced our feeling for hair at the moment.”
The looks of the collection are tailored to the individual and are designed as a study of the relationship between the artist and the muse, where the hair is imagined by the creator but is designed to reflect the wearers personality.
The linear nature of the shapes derive their inspiration from classic Sassoon techniques that utilise the principles of the geometric approach where form follows function and are finished in a modern way, gently ruffled and mussed up on the surface to represent a lived-in aesthetic.
The colour applications take their cue from Bauhaus masters Klee, Kandinsky and Itten as well as Bauhausler Gertrude Grunow, who formulated theories on the relationships between sound, colour and movement.
The minimal nature of the collection cuts provide the perfect platform for a striking palette of pure tones, where asymmetrical geometric patterns are traced through the slightly undone silhouettes. Tones of cool charcoal, natural copper of her own hair with a true red beige nude
