Milan Fashion Week SS20: MM6 x Code8 Recap

There’s nothing we love more than a celebrity wedding. So we were super excited to see the MM6 SS20 show at Milan Fashion Week reimagine the 1969 wedding of John Lennon and Yoko Ono for modern times.

If the iconic couple were Insta-loving, gender fluid, matcha latte-drinking millennials, we’re pretty sure this is what their wedding would look like. Playing with the idea of ‘opposites attract’, the collection by Maison Margiela’s sister line featured bride and groom looks mixed with streetwear.

Think blazers paired with tulle dresses and suits combined with women’s lingerie details. Though this was a womenswear collection, some of the looks were worn by men and we can confirm they will be produced in men’s sizing (who needs fashion rules anyway?)

We spotted influencer Brittany Xavier @Brittanyxavier waiting for the show and caught up with her before it began. To our delight, she was wearing our Iconoclast Eyeshadow palettes in Burnt Sienna and Jaipur Marbles as well as our Bronze Summer Glow Powder in East Hampton. She also wore a touch of our Blush Palette in Rosé and completed her look with a combination of our Colour Brilliance Lipstick in Spiaggia Rosa and Matte Velour Lipstick in Pop Art. A full face of Code 8. What a queen! 

Speaking of beauty - the looks for the show were created by make-up artist Nami Yoshida and are inspired by the idea of a bride the morning after her wedding. She’s woken up in last night’s make-up (with a slightly fuzzy head) after some heavy celebrating with loved ones. #wehaveallbeenthere.

To get this nouveau newlywed look, apply the Radiate Beauty Balm all over the face for a glowly, natural-looking base. Its combination of pectin and argan seed oil will nourish your skin and add radiance. Perfect for mimicking that ‘just married’ glow.

Follow it up with the Seamless Cover Concealer. It’s the easiest way to hide any imperfections and veins and thanks to the light-reflecting particles your skin’s texture will appear softened. Just like magic. 

Then take a sheer wash of Iconoclast Eyeshadow Palette from either the Burnt Sienna or Lustrous Corduroy all over your lid. Don’t worry about being too precise, we’re going for a lived-in look here.

A slick of Lash Sophisticate High Definition Mascara will add some subtle dimension to your eyes, and that’s all you need. Smudge it slightly if you like. There are really no rules here.

Depending on your lip colour, finish up with a dab of Seamless Cover Concealer or a brown shadow from the Lustrous Corduroy palette on your lips. Your aiming to enhance your natural pigment for a kissable finish. The MM6 bride will no doubt be locking lips with her beau as soon as she’s walked the runway. 

And voila! The MM6 look is now yours. No groom necessary.
