Sensual & innocent all at once

Kika: fresh faced, hair a little bit wet like she’s stepped out of the shower and not quite dried it yet, nails short, skin glowing, natural. Dusan Jaukovic captures that side of the model – youthful yet sensual – a kind of raw portrait that progresses to a more grown up one as lipstick is added and Morfium Couture‘s brilliantly theatrical gowns enter the frame.

An enchanted forest next door to New York

Far from the madding crowd – or in this case, New York – sits Long Island. Morfium Couture designer Jelena Malesevic tells me it feels worlds away, like a quiet country space that just happens to lie geographically close to the jutting skyscrapers of New York City. That much is clear, too, from Morfium’s shoot Refugium; the Long Island backdrop appearing as a refuge in…

Sofi’s choice: living out the fantasy

When faced with extraordinary beauty, it’s easy to play out the ocean of fantasies, for each time they will feel intriguing and new. Innocence, rebellion, temptation or edginess, there is no limit to what a series of strong portraits can evoke and inspire. Bringing a sense of fantasy to reality, or blurring the line between worlds all together, photographer Dusan Jaukovic turned Sofi into the…

Prayer is a longing of the soul

That Morfium Couture can continue to create such complete fantasy worlds from their collections should come as no surprise by now – and yet, with each one, we get drawn in anew. This time photographer Dusan Jaukovic and stylist Jelena Malesevic (Morfium’s designer) challenged themselves to connect mysticism and fashion in a series of images starring Jefimija Jokic. Like the ancient Gods were keepers over…

Morfium’s bold tribal beauty

If you’ve already entered the draw to win a pair of €500 Morfium Couture silver leggings then chances are you’ll recognise their shining presence in this shoot by Dusan Jaukovic (if you haven’t entered, you can still do so by following the link to our Facebook page). In the shoot, Serbian model Jefimija Jokic lends her soft beauty and strong presence to Morfium’s (morfium.net) tribal-inspired…

ArcheTrip: ancient tribes meet modern day

Morfium‘s collections always take you on a trip to some other time, some other place that’s not quite of this world. Often the fantasy is one of mythology, gods and goddesses, always fantastical and always stirring the imagination. Their fall 2013 collection does that again, but this time it’s ancient tribes that beckon you to another time: Morphium’s prehistoric woman might be of the past…

Morfium’s dark vixen

If ever there was a brand apt at merging fashion and fantasy, it would be Morfium Couture. In every shoot Dusan Jaukovic embarks upon for the label, the fantasy is wrought of every contributing element: hair, makeup, styling, backdrop. This time, a choppy black bob hairstyle and exaggerated black eyeliner turn model Jefimija Jokic into a dark vixen worthy of any Gothic plotline. Veiled, heeled,…

Prairie fairy: more magic from Morfium

Every time I see one of Morfium Couture’s bodysuits – those pastel dreams of gathered tulle that feel somehow mythological and yet modern – I fall in love all over again. We saw them in an indoor setting as Resort wear, and now variations on the piece pop up again for summer 2013. In a field of slender tall grass or set against bails of…

The lonely place: Mila Miletic

At a glance, and with her natural mousey hair, Mila Miletic could pass for a young Kate Moss. That’s not quite so true in Lonely Place in some of the shots where stylist Jelena Malesevic and photographer Dusan Jaukovic transform her to the point where the shoot almost feels like it’s acted out by several different models. Eye colour changes, wigged hair alters both the…

Morfium: fantasy pieces you can wear in reality

Morfium Couture create the kind of pieces that border fantasy and reality. In Dusan Jaukovic’s shoots they have the dreaminess of costume: a crimson draped dress paired with matching leaf-like fans, the kind you’d picture being used to keep cool an Ancient Queen; bodysuits worn with just leg-warmers and heels on a dancer’s lithe body. But away from the inevitable beauty of Jaukovic’s fantastical photos,…
