Luna Bijl breaks her Fall in “Play It Cool” by Lachlan Bailey for WSJ Magazine, October 2017. Autumn invites us to escape the chaos of Summer, with colors that connect to the outdoors. Ludivine Poiblanc gives us a streamline version of 70’s inspired styles, with looks that capture the era’s flavor without the excess. Mini-skirts follow the fad with a blend of jumpers that brings us back to the day. Casual cool never looked so good with lines that take the sexual component out of the equation. Modern fashion has found it’s footing as looks are less about the male/female connection. Clean lines provide an a-sexual vibe, with an eclectic blend of button-down denim, flat-faced trousers and a black pantsuit that screams gender neutral. Decade specific designs go with flow showin’ u gotta’ look behind 2 c ahead.
This layout allows her features to sing, as Mark Carrasquillo plays the music of her face to perfection. A poetic connection is made between the camera and the page, as the intensity of Luna’s stare comes through. Mark makes good use of her natural beauty by choosing to focus on the shape of her eyes. Wide-set brows give a good frame, as her lids lay a little sleepy, evoking a romantic illusion. Adversely, black liner provides a rock-‘n-roll vibe, creating an opposing theme. Her square jaw mixes with supple skin, as the captivating combination of soft and strong capture a unique facial structure. Powder dusts the cheeks & chin with a similar lip tone that glows. Leaving an upturned mouth to follow the lid form, giving the entire look a hit of consistency. Rudi Lewis leaves her long locks loose, with a hint of sunny highlights to shine. Luna celebrates the season by embracing the sartorial shift that happens as the natural elements change.
