He did it with mirrors. Matrix artistic designer Nicholas French’s striking collection, Classical Reﬂections, uses strategically placed mirrors to offer a panoramic view of ornate, intricate hairstyles. Elaborately towering yet sophisticated and reﬁned, the looks evoke a sense of raw elegance and glamour. “The images in Classical Reﬂections are of a golden past mixed with a hint of modernism to give a contemporary feel,” French relates. —Amy Dodds
French created the looks by employing techniques from the ’60s and ’70s. “It gives the collection a fresh, new look but with a glimpse into the past,” he says.
