Gypsum’s October 2014 look book goes by the name of Casablanca Royale – which aught to tell you a lot, if the brand’s penchant for exotic neo-bohemianism didn’t already. In a setting of plush Moroccan carpets, the look book features patterned babydoll dresses, lace slips and bustling furs – all complimented by on trend jewellery and exotic makeup.
It was a good day to be backstage. For one, Nuno Gama’s epic closing show was to include 80 male models, most of whom were milling about waiting for their call time. I was hardly going to complain about that. Secondly, Valentim Quaresma’s unique creations – intricate pieces of body jewellery made from clips and skulls and other curiosities – were being adorned onto bodies…

You can almost taste it, the freedom, the boldness, the sweet abandon to nature, just as you witness it fitting into the perfect island decor, and you sense it endlessly running its course through the veins of the wild ones.

Rather than sticking purely to the mystical influences defining fall 2014’s jewellery trends, designer Kate Albrecht went all the way back to the Edwardian period for her latest collection.

I first shot Luis Borges at last season’s ModaLisboa, standing out from the crowd courtesy his unique sense of personal style. The same could be said for Luis yesterday at day 1 of the Lisbon fashion week’s spring 2015 edition. Bold stripes, oversized cuts and a hint of gold jewellery were all so right for that modelesque face and cool fuzz of black hair.
Victoria’s Secret’s october 2014 look book gets more sultry than ever, with Candice Swanepoel in sumptuous midnight blue lingerie, rich black fur and the brand’s line of elegant gold jewellery.

Because the face of Hanalei Reponty, Mara Hoffman’s fall 2014 muse, is largely obscured; hidden beneath a gauzy checkered veil, a curtain of mermaid-like hair, or some delicate ring-embellished fingers. Olivia Malone’s photos are more about the clothing and the mood… about the mystical California skies awash with stars and the jutting rocks looming against the sand.
Madeline Crowe has the kind of innocent and beautiful features that best describe a free spirit, and the kind of gentleness that goes hand in hand with the realms of nature, maybe that’s why she looks like she belongs both to the infinite blue sea, and to the endless fields of green. Photographed by Simon Everiss, her delicate being takes on the bohemian philosophy, with…

Her body is the faultless kind capable of suddenly awakening the soul, while her skin appears to be made of precious gold, yet it’s in her eyes where lost stories strive to break out, twinkling and then disappearing, time and time again.
