Ten Pieces took us to Bondi Icebergs to present their Resort ’19 collection, ‘Rude’. Designers Maurice Terzini and Lucy Hinckfuss were inspired by ‘rude girls and rude boys meets NYC in 1973, and punks from 1967 - 1981.’ The signature unisex aesthetic was developed in this collection to include slick tailoring, expertly layered by stylist Caterina Scardino. The monochromatic color palette that we have come to expect from Ten Pieces was expanded this season blues, greens and acid yellow. This collection was the strongest offering that the brand has showcased thus far, and the wider range of silhouettes will translate to a much broader market. 


The makeup look was all about the skin, which was prepped to create a dewy look which looked almost sweaty on the runway - as though the models had been out all night in a club. Makeup director Carol Mackie hand drew tattoos to finish the look, which were inspired by the tattoos designer Maurice has, drawn by his children. 


Jon Pulitano directed the hair and created individual looks working with the models natural hair texture. There was an overall theme of youth, rebellion and androgyny - some models hair was slicked and sculpted to shape the head like a skull cap, while others wore wild curls.
