The ‘Exoticism’ movement of the late 19th century was incredibly significant for fashion, as this trend influenced all aspects of art, including music, film, and paintings. It has been the most important reference for Rae Palmer of WeLove Hair and Beauty when planning the color for the DeCCo collection. Looking to designers like Alexander McQueen, Christian Dior and, of course, Chanel gave her the inspiration for the colors she used to coincide with the vintage shapes.
“I really wanted to convey these exotic hues into wearable and bold hair colors so I worked with luxurious burgundies, vibrant pinks, rich oranges, opulent violets, and regal plums.” - Rae Palmer
