Home alone and living the fantasy

In the intimacy of a familiar surrounding, one can finally reveal its true nature. Home alone and living the fantasy, Zoi Gorman mirrors the opulence of the French chateau chosen as backdrop in a bold, luxurious and sensual editorial envisioned by Dutch fashion photographer Ivor Paanakker. Based on a strong avant garde concept and epitomizing the essence of the exceptional location, the photo shoot plays upon decadence and blunt sexiness without letting go of its high-fashion quality.

To match and at the same time soften the ancient chateau’s sumptuous atmosphere, Marieke de Kan chose a visually striking styling based upon sheer fabrics and lace dresses, ultra-feminine silhouettes and sensual accents, emphasizing the sublime baroque influences specific to the 18th century.

In an effortless game of contrasts, the vintage items joined forces with designer lingerie pieces and Steve Madden pumps to achieve a complex series of looks that appear both unexpected and alluring. Hilda Jonkman helped shape the exuberant portrait with an equally fearless choice of hair and make-up.

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.
