TIME & PLACE: @3:30PM, Monday, September 8, 2008
The Bumble & Bumble Academy, 415 West 13th Street, the Meatpacking District, NYC

Backstage there were some heavy hitters in the beauty world doing hair and makeup – JIMMY PAUL for Bumble & Bumble, and Marc CARRASQUILLO for ck Calvin Klein Beauty.

THE HAIR & MAKEUP LOOK – Pool deluxe
Said Jimmy Paul, “ It’s a woman getting out of a swimming pool. Think, wet-looking.
To achieve this look, all it takes is lots of Bumble & Bumble Straight and the new Bumble & Bumble GEL, which will be launching soon.
There were packs of extra long hair extensions on the table, but fortunately, there weren’t any hair emergencies, so they didn’t come into play.


We’ve already previewed the gorgeous Gladiator shoes that CESARE PACIOTTI made especially for the show. What we didn’t know then though, was how comfortable they were, at least, according to one of the models, who was wearing a vapor grey fitted jacket with embroidered leggings.
FABRICS & COLORS. We loved the pale vapor gray and it looked right worked as sheer layered pieces as did the celadon. What didn’t work so well for us were the multicolored plaited tweedy looking pieces which seemed heavy by contrast.
What Ohne Titel DOES do however is to take some risks, and let's face it, there can't be any big rewards if you're not willing to take some risks. We look forward to seeing the Fall 2009 collection.
