Delicate as a flower

It’s that time of the year when the Northern Hemisphere embraces the subtle whisper of spring in the air, and offering visual pleasure are the flowers that bloom after months of absence.

Of course, who better to interpret this gleeful season than the beauty industry?

For their 11th issue, Volt magazine is celebrating the most predictable aspect of spring in this uniquely photographed editorial titled Leila. In every frame, the beauty of a fresh flower is set for comparison against the model’s facial features. The dewdrops on the rose petals are akin to the water droplets on the lips. Hues of bubble-gum pink and lime green envelope the hair strands as though it was a bunch of carnation and chrysanthemum. The eyes are dusted with white eye shadow, channelling the bud of a flower.

A flower’s touch-me-not and delicate element has been given a raw and organic approach for this shoot, it could be to mark the onset of spring or put the limelight on a woman’s most treasured assets.

As photographed by Rui Faria, click on the thumbnail above to peruse the entire editorial.
