The heat of summer can have an almost hypnotising effect on everyone around: the steady beat of the warming sun’s rays, the thickness that finds its way into the air you breathe, the soft warmth that accompanies the day in and the day out. This way of life can put you in an almost dreamlike state of sun, sand and warmth; all these factors are reflected by this scintillating and (for lack of a more appropriate word) sizzling fashion shoot.
Photographer, Peter Soulis, creates a seamless summer shoot with hues of deep bronze, golden blonde and the whimsical blues of the ocean and sky in the backdrop. The shoot calls to you in the heat of a summer’s day, creating something quite glamorous and spectacular among the grains of sand of this alluring beach surrounding.
Hair and makeup, done by Karen Bicchiierai, reflect natural notions of someone kissed by the factors of nature: salt-swept hair, deeply tanned skin, plumped and pink lips. Model, Elyse Knowles, is a streamlined version of female form perfection: from her long golden locks that lick, stick and seem to have a life of their own, to her radiant skin and salient blue eyes. Soulis captures the true essence of summer beautifully by perfectly juxtaposing all the different elements that would make summer complete.
The sense of style in this shoot is deeply feminine and glamorous. Vanessa Lane, the stylist on the shoot, focuses on metallic silvers, blacks and golds to give the outfits a completed look of elegance and class. Big bracelets of silver or gold contrast glamourously on Knowles’ bronze skin, and the different swimsuit pieces, along with their accessories, reflect a certain vintage flare and overall style autonomy.
This swimwear fashion shoot opens you to a world of summer warmth and richness, a telltale sign of the days to come.
