Aliya Galyautdinova in ‘Purity’ by Nicolas Guérin for Schön!
Posted Jun 19, 2015
Aliya Galyautdinova is bound to beauty in ‘Purity’ by Nicolas Guérin for Schön! To be tied to yourself. To be seeking freedom when it’s outside your reach. To invite the rhythm of life into your mind, only to be met with restraint – that is a powerful picture to behold. Piercing eyes penetrate the page as each shot takes us deeper into the fold. Sheri Chiu invites the ferocity of female spirit into the fray, with ropes that speak to inner-strength. Avant-garde artistry erupts as neo-designs devour the delicacy of modern fashion. Stylist, Yaya Moo, merges extremes, by taking us from the silken feel of exotic fabrics to the rough edges of tethered twine. A beautiful display of power and play, (Makeup Artist) Cyril Laine creates a face worthy of witness. Soft shades match the tone of the skin with big, brown eyes bulging with possibility. Aliya embraces the Victorian era with the blushing cheek of a renaissance woman. Hairstylist, Sonia Duchaussoy, revives a vintage vibe with spit-curls stuck to the forehead, pin-curls cascading down the back and a skinny bun sticking straight-up to the sky. With an aire of refinement, each look redefines the art of neo-salvation. I seal my own fate… I tie my own ropes… the knots of insecurity are made by my own hand. A pathway to the promise land, get lost in the past with an evocative array of mind/body role-play. Ropes by Bérénice V.
