The general advice when shooting a look book is to avoid black; the detail of black pieces is often lost if not photographed correctly. Even more precarious is shooting black-on-black, yet Indonesia’s luki not only dared – he won. A black background, a model (Vien Febrina) with raven-black hair, and a collection comprised entirely of black. Yet luki’s work for label Sapto Djojokartiko is detailed and perfectly impacting. The key – sheer fabrics and lace, the likes of which bare enough contrast against skin for the details to be distinguishable.
As for wearing the pieces? If you’re not as confident as Natalia Vodianova don’t despair – layering is a friend of the pragmatist.
