Glowing across the eras

The season’s 1950s subplot need not necessarily lend itself to the romance genre. Pencil skirt silhouettes and pastil colours are well suited to romance indeed, but as this shoot from Volt Magazine shows they can also be interpreted with a funky, modern veneer. Leather bomber jackets get an 80s twist with tulle and lace details; while on other pages of the same book a dress pops out in a neon burst, or a Prada hot rod skirt finds love in unlikely places with a cutaway leather bodice. The graffiti effect overlaying Jeon Seung Hwan’s shoot adds to the 50s / 80s clash.
