The September Issue Lulls Us Into Bare State of Beauty

Fall never looked so fine with fiery images ignited by Luigi & Iango for Vogue Japan, September 2017. Anna Ewers, Lara Stone, Joan Smalls, Natasha Poly, Vittoria Ceretti & Doutzen Kroes go a ‘la natural for a high fashion line-up unlike we’ve seen. To speak one’s thoughts through the act of display with words falling off my lips like a mini Hemingway. To transfer styles to sound-waves… would allow the frequency of chic to hit the streets.

Stella Lucia Stuns Us Senseless "Good Girl Gone Bad" in Dazed

Stella Lucia stuns us senseless in “Good Girl Gone Bad” by Bettina Rheims for Dazed Digital, SS17. Artful images dominate this page as Stella emerges in a riotous rage. Her passionate overtones are obvious, however, it’s the subtle makings of sadness that keep me engaged. Here we have a woman on the edge. Teetering towards a tenuous truth, one where what we believe is not marked by what we see, rather, what is unveiled is voraciously met by vicious ends.

Flapper inspired dresses are designed with sequined embellishments, long and lean, these sinewy frocks fuse together while standing apart. 

Natasha Poly Rides the Ocean "On the Crest of a Wave"

Natasha Poly crashes in on a new tomorrow as she rides “On the Crest of a Wave” by Txema Yeste for Vogue Russia June 2017. I waited patiently for summer proper to show it’s face before I illuminated such a spectacular place. Art expounds this sacred ground as the sea doth pound the shore, Natasha rises forth in colorful wonder like an enchantress from the ocean floor. Natures’ wonders are found in abundance as we watch her languid along the water’s edge. 

Journey of Discovery "Tiblisi Journal"
