Briley Jones draws ruby ink marks down her arms in ‘Heart On Your Sleeve’ by Niclas Heikkinen for Grit Magazine, Summer 2015. Raging with red, Briley lets her emotions out as the ‘Sweet Nothings’ of Summer dare to devour. The palate of prose articulated by deeply meaningful poses. The body invites us to explore our feelings with poetry captured in linear perfection. Stylist, Kama Krystel, exposes the era of enlightenment by using carmine colors not often associated with the season. Heat speaks as the passion of fashion erupts with desire. Fueling the fire, (Makeup Artist) Gillian Campbell lets the eyes intoxicate with polarizing beauty that burns. The shades of scarlet steal the show with crimson shadows surrounding the orbs. Following the feeling… sanguine circles the forearm as a stripe falls over one shoulder, artfully ending wrapped around the index finger. Avant-garde excess emanates off the skin inviting each shot to explore. Hairstylist, Tori Hutchinson, lets copper-colored hues gingerly cascade down the back in an effort to fly free. I close my eyes and there I see a new brand of Summer teasing me. Flushed in fantasy, the flame of beauty bares itself as nature invites us into a new season.
