Tropical desire: styling for days filled with sunshine

There is a clear reference of colour and prominence as we move into the season of spring 2013. Bold colours with striking distinction frame each body to create an overall tropical apparel perfect for days filled with sunshine and warmth.

Photographer, Nick Washington, creates clear portraits with distinctive colouring and contrast of bronzed skin, strikingly coloured apparel and bold accessories. Stylist, Victorie Eklund, focuses on block colours placed against one another, or against the tropical patterns associated with the heat of spring and summer.
