Colour that makes you stop & look

Stop & Look demands the title of this shoot by Numpo. And quite rightly, it’s the colourful styling by Justyna Ziarko, captured in the vibrant photography, that implores us to do so. Model Magdalena Chachlica poses against cleverly colour-blocked backdrops in such a way that everything comes together – the clothing, the makeup, the settings – into a striking whole.

The chignon is like the hairstyle equivalent of a swiss army knife: it proves useful in every situation.
