The mystifying presence of a world unknown

Have you ever felt yourself lost in a dream, lost in a thought that is so deep within your imagination that you may well be living that very experience?

Fire in the sky, flames in the deep

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…

Underwater love: The Spirit of Galatea

Joel Janse van Vuuren is a bit like Disney but with clothes. Even though this shoot is named The Spirit of Galatea, which refers to the Pygmalion’s statue in Greek Mythology that came to life, I would like to analyse it through my glitter filled eyes. Shot by Ilse Moore, who is much like God’s gift to fashion photography, the campaign is able to fast…

If you agree then you’d do yourself a disservice not to watch this video by Khoa Bui (khoabui.com). Model Katherine is sensual and Siren-like in the beautifully shot…

Mettle jewellery channels The Fifth Element

Part of The Fifth Element‘s enduring appeal was the iconic costuming: Milla Jovovich, bright orange hair, white bandage-strapped outfit clinging precariously to a model frame. It also brought sci-fi themes out of geekdom with its mainstream cast and love-conquers-all ending. Both the visuals of the film and the themes around humanity’s survival were the inspiration behind Mettle’s latest jewellery collection – and it’s all the…

Why the Great Gatsby trailer mixes flapper fashion with Jay-Z

As the camera pans over 1920s New York in the opening of the newly released Great Gatsby trailer, you might expect a soundtrack of brassy, hip-shimmying jazz. But this is Baz Luhrmann, the man who had Shakespeare’s brave Mercutio dressed in drag and belting out Young Hearts Run Free. The man who gave Paris circa 1900 a soudtrack of Smells Like Teen Spirit and Like…
