Tough styling for the soft beauty

The progression of photography, mood, attitude and tone always allows us an insight into what the story is actually saying and who it is saying it about. This strong, sexual and sophisticated shoot reflects a hard exterior that so many modern women feel necessary to affix around themselves. And while the photographic journey moves on there begins a new insecurity and new revelations into what kind of a person she truly is – softer, quieter and deeply feminine in her way of life.

Stylist, Sjan Johansen, used an array of neutral coloured apparel and combined it with the layered accessories of cowls, chain choker necklaces, belts and gloves. She also used striking and brightly coloured jewellery to create a third dimension to the model’s (Charlie Austin) clothing – which is again reflective of the depth that runs within her being, and is simultaneously reflected in her dress.

Photographer, Glen Krohn, makes use of an urban landscape covered in flowers and natural greenery (again this creates the contrast of soft and hard, gentle and tough). Krohn makes skillful use of lighting enhancements to give this shoot a more impactful and holistic feel, giving life to all aspects of the shoot – the apparel, the girl, the landscape and the mood.
