We keep on exploring the present while fantasizing about the future, but every once in a while, the past catches up, disarming us with a romanticized version of the good-old days and suddenly it is all about “then”, and a little less about “now”. It only takes a luxurious backdrop, some gold accents shimmering in the decor, a couple of striking floor-length dresses and a flared skirt as light as air to finally understand what femininity is all about. Barbora Sindleryova and Maryia Rehilevich bring back a glimpse of the past ever so effortlessly. Photographed by Koray Parlak, this Marie Claire Turkey editorial is simply splendid.

Playing upon a juxtaposition of dusty colors and vibrant hues, exploring the ease and delicacy of the ’60s signature silhouettes and throwing some sparkles along the way, fashion stylish Hakan Ozturk (www.hakanozturk.com) did a perfect job in capturing the reminiscent sophistication, serenity and femininity that defines the distant decade. All-together the editorial looks modern, yet nostalgic.

The surreal atmosphere, complemented by the perfect blend of warm light, vintage-like color effects and grand location, set the tone for the mesmerizing photo shoot featuring hair by Ibrahim Zengin and make-up by Hamiyet Akpinar.
