What dark alchemy is this? Taking to a laboratory as the setting of her shoot LAB, Katya Tsyganova is mixing up formulas of fashion and beauty that turn the everyday into gold. Shimmery skin by makeup artist Kate Mur and gravity defying hair by Tatyana Pogosyan are key parts of this visual formula of which Kir Akimov’s styling – filled with sparkling lurex and shiny metallics – is the unwavering foundation.
