When we heard that CATWALK by TIGI had partnered with Christopher Kane to create an iconic hair accessory for the Autumn/Winter 2012 season, we had to get a closer look!
The result is a modern take on the hairband - super chic double strand of mock leather that will add an edge to all your AW12 hairstyles. Former winner of the British Fashion Council’s Designer of the Year, Christopher Kane is a long term collaborator of TIGI, whether styling the brand’s hair look books for the season or creating hair for his London Fashion Week shows, Kane is excited about this next collaborative effort: “I used accents of black leather in my AW12 collection and so wanted to create a hairband for TIGI that had the same attitude. A double strand in soft mock leather adds toughness and strictness and keeps the hair controlled and modern” says Kane.
"I love this hairband as it has a multitude of uses and really channels Christopher’s AW 12 main collection" says TIGI’s Nick Irwin. "Place the band around the head and simply tie hair back into a loose knot or for a softer look; weave tendrils of hair through the band – this is one way to instantly update your look for the coming AW season and beyond".
Available from selected Catwalk salons only with the purchase of 2 Catwalk by TIGI products whilst stocks last, this is one collaboration you need to get your hands - and then your head - on pronto.
