Harper’s Bazaar Spain
Posted Sep 20, 2013
Liu Wen is a heavy-metal beauty in ‘La Edad de los Metales’ by Nagi Sakai for the September 2013 issue of Harper’s Bazaar Spain. Delivering one of the season’s most killer covers, Sakai celebrates The Age of Metals with a brilliant story that alternates between bold black/white and brilliant color. With slicked-back hair and tightly framed shots these close-ups are all about capturing the intense details of face, with particular attention being paid to the multi-dimensional magic of Fall’s metallic makeup. Visually arresting & exquisitely illusory (artist) Makky Pratayot go to extremes with a unique combination of lustrous looks that range from classically clean to outright avant-garde. So Whether it’s the cool clean look of copper colored lids or the abstract slashes of a modern interpretive makeup the silvery undertones of the smoke chrome finish gives this new generation of shades all the mojo of the original metallics without the Disco inference.
