Maria Unali’s latest collection – Blue – probably connotes some old musical influences from your past, and that was exactly Maria’s intention. Honouring the female legends of 1970s music (think Janis Joplin, Stevie Nicks, Dusty Springfield and Joni Mitchell in particular), the collection showcases 70s hair trends, a retro black and white photography style and a classic, editorial feel to highlight these women and the impact their music had on the social, romantic and environmental facets of the time.
The collection’s photography style exaggerates shade, texture and shape, amplifying the hair’s technical contrasts, for example, sleek, shiny finger waves, compared to a matte, gritty afro look. The entire collection was created with a disregard for perfection, with Maria breaking some editorial and fashion photography conventions to exude an overall Rockstar aesthetic in the images.
