How do you create a shoot that highlights elements of the 1980s but doesn’t actually feel like it’s dated? Luca Meneghel has the answer in the form of this photo series, titled Pink Eighties. The title is fairly self explanatory; and yet between Meneghel’s photography, Norma Nardi’s styling and Sabine Gutwenger’s hair and makeup, it all feels decidedly modern.
Model Madeline Pace wears floral hotpants, high pink tights, a rainbow-striped skipping rope, a shaggy oversized jumper… paired with chalked pink hair and pink eyeshadow. It’s all a bit modernised and refined, though; the magic of the ’80s sprinkled in the now.
With the starring pink hues contrasted against grey backdrops, Luca Meneghel’s (lucameneghel.com) ’80s inspired world can be viewed in full at the gallery.
