Playing paper-doll dressups in the real world

When it comes to time and pace and the speed at which the world moves, we often forget about the simple and delicate ways of living life; the softness of physical touch becoming lost in a digital age, the innocence of a child playing outside vanishing in the technological living of today. With the creativity and vision of pure make-believe Luca Meneghel creates a fashion…

Paradise Lost, innocence found

“The power of displaying the vast, illuminating the splendid, enforcing the awful and darkening the gloomy” is what turned John Milton’s “Paradise Lost” into an epic poem that puts forward inspiration to this very day. It might just be its power to astonish that keeps the fascination alive, but whatever new interpretation it is given, you can almost never expect less than the extraordinary from…

No detail but draping

Model Nele is only wearing two simple dressses, hair brushed up, barely there make up and no shoes at all; and yet this photoshoot by Luca Meneghel can capture your attention right away. The black and white finish of the photos has a rawness, and add to that the fierce yet calm expression on Nele’s face and you’ve got a simple yet powerful photoshoot.

Ethereal by Luca Meneghel

It is all about the eyes in this ethereal and ghostly photoshoot by Luca Meneghel. Model, Sophia Hirtenfender dons a pale face and the only colour seen is the smudged eye make up in shades of blue and pink. The photoshoot really exposed not only the talent of the photographer but also the talent of the hair and make-up artist, Sabine Gutwenger. The goal of…

True terror is of the soul

With Halloween upon us, we’re caught up in the costumed side of horror. Fake blood trickling from the corners of mouths that sport plastic vampire teeth, ghostly apparitions made from white sheets (and plenty of imagination), invasions of makeup-covered zombies. But, to paraphrase Edgar Allan Poe, terror is not of any stories, but of the soul. Sometimes the greatest horrors are not supernatural, but the…

Lazy sunday morning luxury

There’s no luxury quite like the kind you feel at home. The kind that comes from crisp white sheets that faintly smell like sunlight, lavender and cut grass; from waking up late on a sunday morning and having nothing in particular to do but make fresh coffee and read the sunday papers. It’s the feeling of wearing cool, soft, silk as you pad around the…

Wearable anatomy from Yulia Chulkova

To the lover of science, the curious mind, the human anatomy is a thing of complex beauty. In our modern times it’s a beauty that even fashion draws on in a way that has wide appeal. Who’d have thought that stringy sinews of muscle or the unmelodious xylophone of the human ribcage would take on their own cold and clinical beauty in the eyes of…

Beauty gone grunge

In a way, Luca Meneghel’s (lucameneghel.com) Shooting Grunge is a kind of beauty shoot. It’s not a beauty shoot of the conventional kind, with glossy close-ups of brightly coloured lipstick, but it does play with focal points to sharpen our attention on model Maryia Luncevich’s grungy eye makeup and pallid lips. The shoot also blurs the edges of grunge revival and neo-Gothic styling with its…

The ghost in the green dress

Yulia Chulkova‘s green dress seems organic, alien; it shimmers across the body like a waterfall of liquid fabric, with a structured kind-of peplum clawing its way around the hips. It seems so otherworldly that you can’t help but imagine it editorialised into some futuristic setting, but to buck the cliches photographer Luca Meneghel had other ideas. Meneghel used this piece in a haunting graveyard shoot.
