“Touch me”, implores the title of this shoot starring Zuzana Straska. Of course we don’t expect that the intention was anything too literal, as much as Emin Kadi‘s striking images do jump off the page. It’s reference, we imagine, to the fact that Katie Burnett’s styling flirts with tactility and texture.
From rough netting to supple silk, scrunched leather to thick blanketed wool, all of Kadi’s images play to the touch of fabric against skin. Both he and Burnett know that fashion is about more than how clothes look – it’s how they feel.
Working with hairstylist Lacy Redway, who created a teased 60s style ‘do, and makeup artist Fumi, the team behind Touch Me created a photo series that pierces through.
