Ivor Paanakker creates a deeply wild and passionate fashion shoot inspired by the natural beauty of the animal kingdom. From the luxury and royalty of the peacock, to the sleek and silken shine of the snake, this sense of fashion appeals to the unrefined side of life, and draws its artistry from mother earth herself.
Stylist, Jessica Gonzales Valdivia, uses feather, silk and sequins – among the other multitude of materials that feature throughout this shoot. Prints of leopard and snakeskin find element within each outfit. The effect is enamoring; it captures and calls one into the untamed and unrestrained side of fashion.
Hair and make-up, done by Hilda Jonkman, plays along these lines – wildly styled hair cascading down golden lips and golden eyes. There is a simultaneous ferociousness and temptation that lies within the model’s eyes, creating the air of a wild world, where fashion and fauna collide.
