As the parched landscape shrivels beneath the soles of their feet, the threat of permanent tyranny suffocates every inch of their bodies. An odyssey of unimaginable terror awaits, yet the crippling existence within the Citadel supersedes any possible trepidation. Scouring the expansive wasteland from a heavily armoured truck, Furiosa commands their escape, a fearless warrior on her own journey of redemption, ruthlessly committed to their combined salvation.
Citing George Millar’s cult action film Mad Max Fury Road as his creative stimulus, 2017 AHFA Newcomer of the Year Nathan Cherrington presents an innovative transcript that combines the film’s apocalyptic themes with a killer high fashion aesthetic. By allowing his storyboard to move away from linear re-production to a fresh simulation of far more deep-rooted themes, the end result is innovative and highly captivating.
Displaying a rich portfolio of skill and technique, the collection oscillates wildly from commercial to editorial looks, whilst remaining totally cohesive via an earthy palette in both hair colour and styling. The development of organic shapes and textures are key within the presentation as the stylist creates originality in architecture and finish inspired by the five elements of wood, fire, earth, metal, and water. Also noteworthy is the diverse appeal of the collection that offers a commendable balance of short chewy cuts, billowing long hair and trending metallic embellishments.
Furiosa is a brave collection by an artist committed to cementing a strong vein of originality within his work. It is an evolutionary sequel to his 2017 collection and an insight into a true shapeshifter within the future hair fashion universe.
