Backstage at ModaLisboa, spring 2015

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…

Mr Kate “The Elsie” collection look book

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. Inspired by Lily Elsie, an Edwardian era actress, the collection features matte metals alongside sparkling crystals. One particularly unusual piece is an eye patch that can also be worn as a headpiece or necklace.

Bits of interior luxury, lavish fashion galore

When creative imagination intersects the uniqueness of design, when the world of fashion collides with that of architecture, when bits of interior luxury translate to heaps of lavish ensembles, you come to understand that everything that’s beautiful in shaping our realities is connected in one way, or another. Captured by Niklas Hoejlund for Harper’s Bazaar Interiors, the most amazing details defining Fritz Hansen’s furniture inspire a…

Striped: Luis Borges off duty at ModaLisboa

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.

This mystical girl dancing beneath the stars could be you

Why might it be you? 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.

A bohemian calling

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…

Beams of sunrise over skin made of gold

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. And there is unadulterated sensuality and irresistible softness shaping up her being, her beauty caressed by beams of sunrise, everything else bursting to…

Half masculine, half undressed (NSFW)

Hair slightly wet gently brushed across the forehead, skin glowing, lips lavishly glossed: it’s all there and it’s all screaming instant sex-appeal. And then her body revels in another beautiful juxtaposition, for when it is not concealed in severe button-downs and high-waisted tailored pants awash with menswear inspiration, it lies bare, undisguised, beautiful, freed of any constraints. Powerful, glamorous and highly sensual, Francesco Barion‘s photographs…

Cotton Candy: boho goes West

When bohemian sentiments and cowgirl love collide, the results are bound to be a dream. L.A label Cotton Candy presents a fall 2014 collection – titled ‘Desert Rose’ – that perfectly blends boho and Western in a way that’s both sexy, cool, and now. Floral prints coexist with lace-up thigh high boots, crop tops and suede, accessorised perfectly by turquoise studded jewellery and fishtail braids.
