When it comes to time and pace and the speed at which the world moves, we often forget about the simple and delicate ways of living life; the softness of physical touch becoming lost in a digital age, the innocence of a child playing outside vanishing in the technological living of today. With the creativity and vision of pure make-believe Luca Meneghel creates a fashion photography shoot with all the fantasy and childlike gentleness that is lost in the hard edges of todays world.
This paper-doll rendition of fashion and photography grabs ones imagination and allows the eyes to wonder off into the vintage world of soft light, pastel colours and dreamlike photographic sequences. Hair and make up, done by Sabine Gutwenger, is pure and royal – with deep auburn locks either being drawn back in sweeping arcs, or allowed to hang loosely down the nape of model Maria Palagushkina’s neck. Her makeup is subtle, with natural highlights around the lips and eyes.
Norma Nardi, the stylist on the this shoot, takes the present style back to it’s elementary phase of design, with simple hand drawn covers of fashion-to-be. Using this technique she and Meneghel create the paper-doll style that echoes throughout the shoot.
