Fashion is circular. It is inspired, and it inspires. That’s true for every fashioniser, every designer, every photographer. And Akiss Paraskevopoulos is one such fashion photographer. When Love magazine released their much talked about third issue it was Akiss and model Taryn Andreatta who brought us an homage to the issue’s style (circular indeed given the Love shoots were inspired by Helmut Newton). Now Akiss draws inspiration from something else – the cult French film Emmanuelle.
Shot with a softness reminiscent of the film, and equally as sensual, the shoot features models Celestine van Hulst and Kristina Moller in a variety of seasonal pieces. While you’ll find a number of cutaway dresses and body suits this is a shoot more about feeling than our traditional trends orientated fare.
