A bold and beguiling beauty in summer’s latest display

With the aspiring season of warmth moving into the northern hemisphere’s midst it is time to peel away the layering style of colder times and settle into something a little more vibrant. With winter declaring its dominance so persistently in the last few months it almost seems inconsequential not to celebrate the skinlessness and brilliance that comes with summer clothing. This swimwear shoot by Michael…

Fabric, ink & the naked body: what do you see in this Rorschach test?

The way ink swirls through water like trails of cigarette smoke through the air makes for a visually captivating image. Like tea leaves or clouds or the splodges of paint in a Rorschach test, the swirls take on whatever meaning we give to them: an inky octopus, a tree spreading it’s branches like fingers, a ghost floating through time. Maybe a cloud of ink is…

Seeing double: a mirage in 3D

Michael David Adams‘ Mirage is less the kind you see in a heat-stricken desert delirium, and more the kind that’ll have you reaching for the 3D glasses you stole from the movies. Models Ieva and Aida Aniulyte similarly have you questioning whether you’re seeing double; and you are, in a sense, the sisters leaping from the screen in their identical pristine-featured beauty looks. Along with…

Strict lines & stark times

Strict Lines & Stark Times: the title says much, but not quite all, when it comes to Michael David Adams’ latest shoot. Indeed there’s a clean minimal feel to the sparse white backdrop, block colours and slightly architectural cuts, but Don West’s styling also brings in some more intricate black and white prints, some pops of vibrant colour and some fluidity of fabrics. Featuring the…

Fire in the sky, flames in the deep

There’s seemingly no end to the beauty that can be created when fashion dives into the depths, literally. Sometimes creating a breathtaking underwater shoot comes down to brilliant makeup that shines through the weight of the water, sometimes the wow factor is aided by reflections and ripples and waves. The only thing that you might say is mandatory is a wardrobe of flowing gowns and…

The transformative power of a hat

Faye Dunaway makes her brisk entrance into The Thomas Crown Affair in one; Mia Farrow’s Daisy Buchanan peeped out from beneath the sheer brim of one; and a pair of oversized sunglasses accompanied Audrey Hepburn’s in Breakfast At Tiffany’s. A big, dramatic summer hat is one of those rare items that’s both functional and utterly transformative. Put one on and you can’t help but feel…
