Vivienne Mok‘s shoots aren’t just about the model. They’re a magpie collection of daydreams and pretty things, marked by an unmistakable softness that’s come to be her trademark. I’ve written before on the synergy between hair, makeup, styling and photography that aligns into a single vision in Mok’s shoots, brought about by her one-man-band creative skills that give her full creative control. This shoot of Olga Polienko, exclusive to Fashionising.com, is no exception.
There’s not a prop out of place in the dreamscape of the shoot, from the bed of tulle scattered with roses to the draped bed netting, the vintage furniture, the empty wooden photoframe. Meanwhile the half-milkmaid braid worn by Olga in some shots is a perfect pairing for the lingerie and lace themes of the clothing. Between the styling and the setting, every element comes together not to scream romance but to quietly whisper it.
Utterly worth getting swept away in, click on the thumbnails to view the full shoot.
