Hot Pink Hair! Printed Buzz Cuts!

Punk is the New Pretty at London Fashion Week
The spectrum began with Mariana Zaragoza's lengths, hued an overdyed hot pink which Wood called "strong coral" and secured in a punkish bouffant. Next came Dree Hemingway, her buzz cut colored a similar shade of roseate, while Ariela Soares's cerulean updo offered a pop art counter to the navy iteration that followed. But the main event came courtesy of Finn Buchanan, who closed the show in a blonde buzz stamped all over with iconic Coach monogram in a clever mimicry of animal print—and a nod to Bovan's seasons-long collaboration with Stuart Vevers.
“I think this could be the season where we see colors switching up and changing overnight," said Wood of vivid, of-the-moment aesthetic. "It’s a passion of mine to demonstrate “on-off” color that's there one night and gone in the morning.” With the Public Image Ltd kicking off a North American tour next month, and front man John Lyndon (formerly of the Sex Pistols) premiering a documentary about the group, it seems the rebellious lean that defined the early '80s has legs in the present tense. And for the style set? Considering Bovan's cadre of dipped-and-dyed models, punk may just be the new pretty.
