Reflected mountain ranges. Splashes of water hanging in mid-air. Single white clouds drifting past. Seats suspended in glassy lakes. These images seamlessly complement natural elements with bold, colourful fashion collections. Each story contains a multitude of textures, arrangements and patterns. Layered fabrics feature in pillar-box reds, luminous yellows and subtle nudes – an exploration of contemporary styling and clean-cut tailoring. Light also plays a significant role in all the compositions. It bounces off skin, walls, plants and water, creating diffused contrasts that are both soft and bright.
