Retro styling with a modern twist

A big, old, empty castle brimming with history served as perfect location for Lucia Moretti’s retro flavoured photo shoot. Exploring the empty spaces, playing house, becoming one with the opulent surroundings, model Aleksandra seems caught somewhere between the past and the present. Wearing a delicate Zalando lace dress that begged for a retro styling, she embodies pure femininity with a modern twist.

Blonde tresses built into a bewitching pin-up inspired hair-style courtesy of Marco Natali, red lips accompanied by a touch of black eyeliner as envisioned by Pina Natali and green nails for an unexpected whimsical touch, are the elements working closely in accenting the dainty, graceful and ladylike character of the retro dress. And then come the shoes: bold and modern, building the contrast, adding edge.

Sometimes all a beautiful dress ever needs is an adventurous styling, one that is able to preserve its essence, while also enhancing its powerful character.

Shaped by all things beautiful and feminine, Nicoleta Parascan’s first steps towards entering the captivating world of fashion were taken somewhere around the young age of six, when she received her very own first fashion magazine. Discovering an entirely new universe, filled with pretty ladies and beautiful clothes, there was not much able to ever beat or compete with the fantasy land that was suddenly opening up. Surrounded by books, constantly thinking about the next best outfit, in search of a signature style and defined by a nostalgic calling towards the past, Nicoleta believes in taking chances, in destiny and in building her own path in life. When she’s not writing, you can easily find her playing with her cat, reading an old book, watching movies, exploring the city or blogging her own daily adventures.
