Rad Hourani Is Stunning, As Usual

OK, so I’m biased: As someone who wears fairly androgynous black clothes about 350 days a year, Canadian designer Rad Hourani makes the exact kind of clothes I want to live in. But I’m not alone. Yesterday, editors and buyers alike were impressed by the expertly cut, all-black collection of leather, zippers, layered knits and jackets with a sprinkling of sequins thrown in for good measure. Backstage, MAC makeup artist Hung Vanngo explained that in keeping with Rad’s ideal, he was creating a unique, stark look. He used MAC Studio Sculpt foundation to mute out the male and female models’ faces and even filled in their lips with a creamy flesh-toned concealer. “It’s his most grown-up collection,” Hung told me. “So this look will be stunning with the clothes.” My sentiments exactly.
