You can almost never go wrong with an editorial that chooses to explore fashion as the aftermath of two opposite universes colliding forces until coming together as a whole. Painted in black and white, built upon hard versus soft elements and highlighting the masculine influences as opposed to the subtle feminine notes, Fiona Storey’s antagonistic editorial exudes a strong and powerful mood.
Channeling the portrait of the modern-day woman, having every little detail point towards a nonconformist direction, breaking the rules but keeping the looks polished and relevant, fashion stylist Ricky James Flynn (www.rickyjamesflynn.com.au) found the perfect balance. Minimalist and refreshing, the pairing of the Elliott leather pants, with the crisp Mossman button-down shirt, worn under an oversized denim vest by ACNE, is a bright reflection of the androgyny influence conquering the fashion industry little by little.
To attest the femininity and enhance the dauntless styling, the bold cat-eyes and the messy hair-styles envisioned by Karen Bicchierai (www.unsignedmanagement.com.au) accompanied the flawless outfits in concept and course.
