Fusing a paint box palette of colorful brights with subtle grunge nuances, Alexis Reyna explored the possibilities of neon graffiti styling at Barcelona Fashion Week.

Whilst the clothes took inspiration from the designer’s three-year jaunt around Asia, the makeup had a decidedly more contemporary aesthetic. Neon yellow and pink highlights were smeared across faces and brows, highlighting the contours of the face. Tribal-like body markings saw the conceit extended to the torso, creating fierce urban warriors ready for adventure. Messy buns and updos were sprayed with neon stripes, creating an immediate visual impact that stood out on the catwalk.
