Liam Dunn's Soft Edge for Russell & Bromley
Russell & Bromley re-enlisted Liam Dunn for its newest advertisements. "The autumn/winter campaign encapsulated romantic, sophisticated glamour with a hint of Brooklyn cool," explained Andrew Egan, creative director for CoolGraySeven and the art director on the project. "Liam's hair and makeup styling was a unique, yet consistent articulation of our concept."
Dunn blow-dried model Flavia's hair with Oribe Grandiose Hair Plumping Mousse and sprayed Oribe Dry Texturizing Spray throughout, then pinned her locks into a soft chignon at the nape of the neck. "I wanted the hair to have volume, but not overly bouffant, so I deliberately left the edges soft and wispy, tousled and touchable," he said. Dunn described the beauty look as "soft with no hard edges," which meant a gray smokey eye and defined – though not sharp – brows. He added warmth to her cheeks and lips.
He and the English shoe retailer have collaborated since 2009 on the biannual ads, though "this season was really one of my personal favorites," Dunn remarked. "I loved the idea of a sophisticated and dreamy girl, and how that came through in the pictures."
