Colour, light, texture, emotion and ornate revivals create a photoshoot so profoundly exquisite that it is difficult to imagine anything beyond this regal fashion still-life shot by Aaron Feaver. The regality and splendor behind this lavish rendition of fashion creates a dramatic aura of luxury and desire. With the notions of simplicity and minimalistic décor so obviously pushed aside, this gorgeous shoot comes together to create a story for the eyes and in the mind.
Stylist Marissa Peden makes use of all the baroque notions of rich fabrics (velvet and silk), elaborate designs, embroidery and the fine touches of gold and silver. Each portrait fulfils the look with one elaborate piece placed upon another; vivid head pieces sit upon beautifully decorated hairstyles, golden cuffs placed upon silken gloves, dramatic makeup obscured behind opaque veils and intricately decorated dresses made from richly textured material.
Everything speaks to the lavish side of life, the abundance within fashion and the materials and styles that can be used to promote such a magnificent and irresistibly decedent lifestyle. Feaver and Peden bring these notions to life in a fashion shoot that appeals to the regality within every woman, and reflect the kind of implicit desires that lie within us all.
