There is a lightness that runs through this shoot; the marriage of soft natural light and poetic pose lifts the notions of a fleeting memory; a dream-like remembrance of beguiling vintage style.
The bohemian chic fashion is fused with a French elegance; note the expression of pattern and the importance of colour; all of the cold, hot and muted hues coming through in the different ensembles. Photographer Sara Pellegrino uses soft lighting to create the faded and ethereal look pertaining to one’s memory.
Makeup, done by Guilia Schirru, and hair, done Bruno Gagliano, reflects the glamourous conceptions of the ’50s. The long rolling curls and the elegantly wound updo’s reflect the sophistication behind the fashionable wear, accompanied by the enrapturing combination of porcelain skin, pale lips and accented cats-eyes.
Edmee Nicolis (model) is the perfect dame; beautiful, innocent, mysterious, insouciant. Draped in these glorious fashion pieces she is the perfect centrepiece for this whimsical and graceful shoot.
