Mile-Long Locks Materialize at Moschino
Dreadlocks are nothing new—they were worn by ancient civilizations in Africa and Asia, and the style is closely tied (if not intrinsic) to the Rastafarian movement. Celebrities ( such as Lady Gaga and Lauryn Hill) and designers even commandeered the look for the red carpet and the runway. Hairstylist Sam McKnight created two versions for Chanel: one in 2012 and the other for Fall 2014. And only hours ago Jeremy Scott sent his own towering iteration down Moschino’s menswear catwalk. Models like Lindsey Wixson, Leomie Anderson, and Soo Joo Park sported piled-up twists and belly-button-grazing braids by pro Paul Hanlon, along with bikinis emblazoned with the world’s flags and soda-pop-themed sweatshirts. We like to think of the hair at Scott’s show much like his designs: tradition turned on its head.
