We all know by now that Christopher Kane's specialty is finding beauty within madness.  For his Fall 2016 collection, he tapped into the mind of a woman reluctant to leave her own home and somehow - helped by a juxtaposition of plastic rain hats with floaty, embellished gowns - made it look damn good.  (The cast of Hoarders: Buried Alive should be taking notes.)  

On the models, fresh faces were created with a lit-from-within effect. The subtle hints of colour embodied a "hoarding recluse that has just stepped out for the afternoon," according to NARS makeup artist Lucia Pieroni.  Eyelids glistened as if they had just opened after a long nap, while the lips looked stained and just-bitten. And what looks more recluse than hair 'carelessly' collected into bangs hanging past the models' eyes? If this is what it looks like to be a homebody, leave the product list behind and sign us up for the next Netflix binge.

What do you think of this article?


I founded Couturesque Magazine when I was 15 years old because like many of my peers, I felt ignored and talked down to by all of the other teen fashion publications out there. I figured that at the end of the day, the people who knew the most about my generation, were the people who belonged to it. The fashion industry is becoming increasingly dependent on the creativity of younger voices who challenge the status quo and make us rethink what we wear and why we wear it. And that is exactly what Couturesque set out to celebrate - authenticity, intelligence, originality, and diversity... in other words, what makes Gen-Z tick. Fast-forward to 2016 and we now have a staff of more than a dozen fashion distruptors contributing to our daily content from all around the globe, 100K+ readers following us from Toronto to New York, to London, Copenhagen, Berlin, Tokyo, and Tel Aviv, and a plethora of big-wig industry fans and collaborators. But what matters to us the most is the responsibility that our publication has to make a positive impact in the lives of those who come across it - we stand against retouching our photoshoots and we stand for sharing the beautiful, individual, complex voices of everyone, especially those who feel marginalized by mainstream fashion media. We hope that you love our site as much as we do and that you take the time to follow us (Facebook / Twitter / Instagram / Pinterest / Tumblr / Snapchat / YouTube) throughout our journey to make fashion accessible to the powerful young adults of today.
