Paradise Lost, innocence found

“The power of displaying the vast, illuminating the splendid, enforcing the awful and darkening the gloomy” is what turned John Milton’s “Paradise Lost” into an epic poem that puts forward inspiration to this very day. It might just be its power to astonish that keeps the fascination alive, but whatever new interpretation it is given, you can almost never expect less than the extraordinary from it.

Photographer Luca Meneghel explored the relationship of mutual dependence and gave temptation a whole new meaning in an editorial veiled in the mystical atmosphere that takes you back ages. Dipped in subtlety and evoking the realm beyond the light through the ideal setting found in the old and fascinating city of Milan, the story is further enhanced by the innocent beauty of models Annija Tropa and Kristin Animagi.

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.
