If trends are unavoidable in fashion then they’re unavoidable in most all areas of social life. They’re in our kitchens, on our plates, in the notes that reach our ears and the paths that reach our feet, the paintings that adorn our walls and the cars we drive down the street. And the thing about trends, the reason they’re so unavoidable, is that they’re not just a case of one person following another, following another. They’re a shared inspiration.
Trends in photoshoots are much the same. We saw blatant, sexualised nudity in fashion give way to softer art. The glam 80s reverted to the softcore 70s, inspired by the likes of French film Emmanuelle. And with that shared inspiration of Sapphic, sensual shoots came a trend of using particular props and backdrops. The cane peacock chair. Rustic barnyards. Back-to-nature fields of tall, wind-blown grass. It’s the latter that inspired Carlos Nunez, cementing that bushland shoot as a shared inspiration, a continuing trend.
