Pastels within themselves are an incredibly delicate group of colors, rather heavenly than sensual, particularly pretty and sweet, but not often enough imagined to look sexy or intense. That’s why they require a certain passion to go against their soft nature if the ultimate purpose is to turn them into an irresistible display. With Atif AbuSamra behind camera, pastels are finally allowed to spell out the dramatic.
Following along the lines of the same unwritten scenario, Arianna Nicoloso picks up the heroine part, playing the subdued role at times, the provocative one at others, making for a beautiful sight for the eyes in the lavish series of outfits styled by Ivana Arsenijevic. Lightweight dresses, silk, fur and leather colliding, the inverse shirt buttoning done right and the cool biker jacket revised in baby blue, it’s all being made new.
Superb hair and make-up by Shindesu complement the pastel passion that you can see more of at the gallery. For more of Atif AbuSamra’s photography, you can visit atifabusamra.com.
