AUTHENTIC BEAUTY CONCEPT x Peggy Gou
The AUTHENTIC BEAUTY CONCEPT community can expect brand new, authentic and edgy looks – created in collaboration with Global Creative Advocate, Hester Wernert-Rijn and Advocate Said Rubaii from Germany. During the brand shoot in Berlin, Peggy’s creative vision was brought to life in 4 different lifestyle areas that fit Peggy – TRANQUILITY, CLARITY, BALANCE and COMMUNITY – by photographer Felicity Ingram, featuring the extended Creative Team, including cinematographer Hugo Carlier and director Felix Aaron. Within each theme, a different look and hairstyle was created to show how hair is an authentic form of self-expression; for Peggy is an expression of her mood. During TRANQUILITY, a calming modern house on the lake is depicted, for CLARITY is it about enjoying mindful moments with coffee or fika, BALANCE shows how Peggy likes to keep a cool head in between performances, with tennis as an energetic outlet and finally, COMMUNITY puts her love of art at the center of a exclusive private exhibition.
