Charlie Le Mindu – Haute Coiffure

Charlie Le Mindu’s medium is hair and his ascent has been rapid, with catwalk shows and celebrities clamouring to wear his wigs, most famously Lady Gaga. His creations – painstakingly handcrafted using cutting-edge techniques – are often controversial; but at the heart of his work remains a genuine punk attitude, a wicked sense of humour, and a love of strong women. Le Mindu has a ferocious, independent imagination, untethered by trends and convention, and this, when combined with exquisite skill, precision and dexterity makes for a true artist.

Haute Coiffure celebrates Le Mindu’s work, in all its bold, tactile glory, with a single 16-page section printed using fluorescent Aniva inks.

The limited edition of Haute Coiffure is presented in a custom black box with hinged lid and ribbon, opening to reveal a contrasting neon interior. Inside, under the book, rests an exclusive limited edition black bobbed wig designed by Charlie Le Mindu, with a hidden pocket housing a branded condom – a nod to the drag clubs where Le Mindu worked during his formative years.
