Flickers of porcelain skin and glowing light, powdery eyes and pouting lips… a fairy lost in a forest of autumn leaves and overgrown trees. The softness of femininity and the ladylike manner glow through this photo shoot, so gorgeously captured by photographer Antonina Dolani.
A combination styling project by Kasia Szymanowicz and Paula Lukasiewicz, who have created a decided juxtaposition between 1960s and 1980s fashions; represented through the high-necked dresses and ordained headbands of the 60s maiden, or the draped over coats and formal waist-high belt and dress combo. Meanwhile the rogueness of the 80’s rock star comes through with the thickly laden fur coats, anklet boots and shoulder-padded jackets.
The two fashion genres bounce delicately off of one another; neither being overbearing or haughty, but rather creating a full and layered look of a delicate balance in fashionable understanding and love.
The entire shoot manages to capture all the elements of texture, manner and grace. The natural surroundings enhance the fall of the hair and the beauty of the model, Natalia’s skin. The earthly light transports your vision from something processed to something that is real. A true combination of human beauty placed within environmental beauty, how the two can reflect one another and so delicately echo the magnificence that each can represent.
