Inspired by religious paintings and the French Napoleonic Empire period of the early 19th Century, Kim Lepine created this innovative heavenly Angel Hair in 1987 for La Coupe’s Innocence Product Collection.  There was a heady mix of textures with straight hair and tiny wave movements plus ringlets, all strategically placed, irregularly.  For more on this Collection, styled by Arianne Phillips, later Madonna’s famous fashion stylist, go to HairThen, La Coupe, 80s, on

    This is so innovative, so beautiful, and everyone did a great job – Kim, Geoffrey Hargrave-Thomas the photographer, our future-famous fashion stylist, Arianne Phillips. Thanks Lori for recognizing how great this is. And there’s a lovely color version in the album. I also made a video at the time. Must work on that.
