Beautifully drawn illusions that will amaze & delight

If you ever thought there’s such a thing as a limit to the amount of imagination gracing the beautiful collaboration between photographer Luca Meneghel, and illustrator Norma Nardi, you’ll be pleased to learn that there’s no apparent ending in sight for what is their marvellous and unique storytelling. Borrowing the name of the Greek nymph Calypso, the latest editorial is a fragile work of art,…

At the edge of the world, fashion and illustration collide

At the edge of the world, where the wild things are, everything is different, but nothing is too big to attempt. There lies a space that knows of no beginnings and no ends, a space unaffected by the passage of time, with its own soul, home to creatures of myth, magic and imagination. Taking the non-traditional approach to fashion photography, Luca Meneghel envisioned another ingenious story…

One inventive and beautiful photoshoot that turns mirrors into dresses

We have already fallen in love with the concept of covering a bare body using nothing but a beautiful sketched design in what became one of our favourite campaigns of autumn 2013: FCUK’s “From Sketch To Store”. The unexpected collision of art and reality issued another mesmerizing aftermath in what is Luca Meneghel‘s delightful photo shoot employing Norma Nardi’s gorgeous couture inspired drawings.

Pink hair and the magic of the Eighties

How do you create a shoot that highlights elements of the 1980s but doesn’t actually feel like it’s dated? Luca Meneghel has the answer in the form of this photo series, titled Pink Eighties. The title is fairly self explanatory; and yet between Meneghel’s photography, Norma Nardi’s styling and Sabine Gutwenger’s hair and makeup, it all feels decidedly modern. Model Madeline Pace wears floral hotpants,…

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…

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…

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…
