Natalia S explores an amalgamation of art & nature in the ‘Diary of A Wild Child‘ by Alexandre Félix for Schön! Multi-dimensional madness takes shape as we embark on a trip to another world. Each picture provides a unique presentation by embracing the poetry of the past. Conceptual artistry captures the air of the outdoors as Charlotte Mollet delivers us into the depths of the jungle. Tapestry illustrates our connection to indigenous people through primitive drawings designed to inspire. Mollet redefines the idea of mind-tripping with a stimulating depiction of era travel. Altered outfits invite originality by taking current trends and turning them on their head. Stylist, Tara Ziegfeld, compiles an exquisite mix of mystic fashions, made to look like they belong in the bush. Accessories are worn, not merely as a mark of decoration, but as a sign of significance. Bejeweled fabrics fall over the body as layered prints speak to tenacity. Authenticity erupts, with a brass drum dangling around the neck and piles of heavy beads covering the breasts. Billowing skirts burst out as silk succumbs to a symphony of silhouette. The history of human nature unfolds as (Makeup Artist) Fanny Maurer returns to the origins of time. White strikes are drawn across the skin leaving chalky marks to echo in the spirit of strength. Beauty bursts through the page with ivory fared over the face. Paint is drawn on powdered eyes and rosy cheeks, with stripes that retain a compelling impact. Hairstylist, Cyril Laforet, lets majestic millinery provide reflection, as a feather stands in flaxen hair stretching toward the sky. The spherical energy of the universe reaches down to touch us in this portrayal of power. “Face painting is considered to be an important tradition among Native Americans. It’s more than just a beautifying practice. It’s a sacred social act of distinction and cultural heritage.”
