Far from the madding crowd – or in this case, New York – sits Long Island. Morfium Couture designer Jelena Malesevic tells me it feels worlds away, like a quiet country space that just happens to lie geographically close to the jutting skyscrapers of New York City. That much is clear, too, from Morfium’s shoot Refugium; the Long Island backdrop appearing as a refuge in both name and nature.
And the beauty of the locale is that it really could be anywhere: a house, a haven, and enchanted forest. Model Jefimija Jokic is fantastical, sometimes a mermaid, sometimes an earthy beauty, depending on the theatricality of the Morfium creations. Each image is beautifully framed and shot and conceptualised by Dusan Jaukovic – whose creative eye never fails to capture the fantasy behind every piece of clothing.
