SAINT JANE x Batsheva SPRING/SUMMER 23 NYFW
Making our runway debut for the SPRING/SUMMER 2023 season, SAINT JANE was the exclusive skincare brand for the Batsheva Fashion show complementing the incredible runway looks with glowing, nourished skin.
“I am honored to be partnering with SAINT JANE on the beauty look for the show”, said Makeup Artist Francelle Daly. “I knew that the skin was going to play an important role in the look and both Batsheva and I wanted to amp up the innate glow of the skin and there is no better way to do this than with SAINT JANE’s nourishing formulas. Not only does the skin look and feel incredible, but the formulations are also perfect with makeup application. They are a dream to work with”
I was so excited to bring our signature SAINT JANE experience to the fashion world, for the very first time. Creativity and design are two of the hallmarks of SAINT JANE. Batsheva Hay and her eponymous collection represent some of the most beautifully creative and gorgeous designs to grace the New York runway. Her designs, much like our formulas, take inspiration from the past but embrace modernity and an unabashedly feminine spirit.

Francelle Daly and her team exclusively used SAINT JANE products to achieve the beauty look for Batsheva’s show:
LUXURY BEAUTY SERUM – Used as a first step, our ultra-hydrating serum was used to prep the skin before makeup and ensure a nourished, glowing finish to the skin.
BRIGHT REPAIR EYE CREAM – Our eye cream was applied to the delicate eye area to boost brightness and visibly depuff tired eyes. It absorbs instantly and layers well with makeup.

“The scene was happening at Ben’s Kosher Deli on West 38th street. Busy Philipps, Chloe Fineman, and Coco Rocha hung out in booths while servers walked around offering coffee and orange juice. Of course this place could only be the setting for Batsheva’s spring collection.
This season Batsheva Hay wanted to challenge herself. “I started thinking about Gunne Sax, because I’ve so Laura Ashley’d myself out that I was like, ‘Let’s go into this more ’70s kind of vibe,’' the designer said after the show. “I was appalled by how I continually make such frumpy garments, and I thought, the only thing I can do is try to do something sexy, show more skin and make it sexy… or whatever.” The sexiness was there in the fabrics, like the white mesh with black flocked velvet stars that was used on a short princess sleeve cropped top with Batsheva’s signature ruffle on the chest, worn with a matching mid-rise maxi skirt (complete with red lace underwear visible underneath). It was also there in the Working Girl-esque ensemble of a slim button down shirt tucked into a pencil skirt with a peplum, all done on a red polka dot on white fabric and accessorized with a floral print tie and red polka dot mesh gloves.
The cast included Jordan Roth, Hari Nef, Charlotte Kemp Muhl, SamRon in a shiny red PVC dress, and Jemima Kirke and Alex Cameron, who opened the show in sort of matching white PVC wedding looks. “This felt like a really big show,” Hay said.
GO BEHIND THE SCENES
Backstage at fashion week is chaotic in the best way. So many hardworking creatives collaborate to present their heart and soul. We are so honored for the opportunity to send glowing skin down the runway as part of the beauty look for this incredible show. The first in what we hope will be many more appearances in the fashion space.
