Bewitching eyes, lips that seem to whisper a long-forgotten secret and a haunting beauty that will drag you right in. These are the three main ingredients that serve to reveal the modern fashion tale envisioned by photographer Manfredi Gioacchini, starring model Lyoka Tyagnereva. Dark, edgy but relevant and sophisticated at the same time, the series of pictures use the timeless black and white as focal point.
The enchanting nature of the photo shoot is amplified by the eccentric hat signed by Patricia Underwood and the whimsical jewelry pieces by the likes of Laruicci and Sugar Scout. On the other side, the contemporary appeal of the editorial is enriched by stylist Aki Maesato’s choice of designers like Prabal Gurung and Jil Sander, as ultra-delicate lace and black leather collided with a sartorial extravaganza.
Falling under her spell might look dangerous, but abandoning yourself to the fantasy is inevitable. Featuring an enticing display of make-up by Honda Tadayoshi and femme fatale-like waves created by Takuya Sugawara, the spread is set to divide and conquer.
