NYFW: M.A.C for Thom Browne

M.A.C revisited the history books and created ‘wicked nuns’ for the Thom Browne Fall 2014 show.


A session of Catholic Sunday Mass in New York, Thom Browne’s Fall show brought a sense of dark spirituality into the glam and chic of New York Fashion Week. Audience were seated in pews as the models floated down the church isle. Full of long and conservative ensembles in grey and gold, the collection was full of mysterious (but questionably pious) characters dressed in their Sunday best.


Comparable to the dark female characters of Game of Thrones, the M.A.C team, led by makeup artist Sil Bruinsma, created “wicked nuns with pale skin and stern brows,” said Sil.


In contrast to the white aristocratic wigs and a matte marble-like base, the eyes were a haunted, hollowed out smoky eye and the nails were dipped in pure black for a breathtaking effect – as if awaken from the condemnation of death.
