Saskia de Brauw goes deep in ‘What is the Relationship between Power and Description?’ by Collier Schorr for Document Journal #5, 2nd Anniversary Issue. Moving through the frames like a jungle cat, Saskia arouses our senses as she provocates with the power of purity. Convention and couture collide in this decadent take on the art of dark fashion. Stylist, James Valeri, plays both sides while bringing forth clean lines fueled by a taste for the avant-garde. This story celebrates modern style with simple fabrics that fuse such looks as leather, fur, silk and lace. One eye erupts as (Makeup Artist) Dick Page captures the brooding beauty of black brows floating on a clean face. The features tell of strength, by combining masculine energy with a feminine touch. Simplicity mixed with lavish eccentricity shows us something straight up exciting. Hairstylist, Peter Gray, goes a’la natural with clean hair interrupted by a black cap & neo-noir mask. Breaking free from that which confines us, this tantalizing tale escapes convention and lets the truth come out.
