This month’s haircut / DECEMBER 2017

From Star Wars, Laura Dern / Hondo vice admiral, "Wonderful mix of soft waves with a purple pastel colour shaded in light grey" (Mauro Galzignato)

On December 3rd, Star Wars: The Last Jedi, the eighth and penultimate episode in the most enduring and successful saga in cinematic history, was released in Italy (2 days before its release in the USA). Set in an imaginary galaxy, during an unspecified era, from 1977 until today it has blended ancient and modern, creating an aesthetic of futuristic technology and retro touches that render it unique and immediately recognisable.

A storyline that always depicts the eternal struggle between good and evil and from the start featured strong and positive female figures, the new episode sees the arrival of vice admiral Hondo, new leader of the Resistance, played by an unprecedented Laura Dern, who sports a look that we could describe as retro-glam: “Laura Dern surprises fans of the legendary sequel, sporting a super-current look, mixing soft classic waves with a pastel violet colour with clear grey tones”, Mauro Galzignato, in charge of The Italian Touch collections, commented. He adds: “but is she adapting to the canons of fashion or is this a preview of the next Spring/Summer?”.
