This fashion shoot jumped out at us the moment we first saw it. These are powerful images shot by Rossella Vanon. The figures come across like religious icons on the walls of a Byzantine church; the millinery and jewellery framing their faces for posterity.
Are they saviours deserving of our devotion or like Narcissus consumed by love only for themselves? Much admiration for the fantastical accessories – necklaces by Ivory Jar, crowns by Katharina Domokosch and the famous face corsets by Patrick Ian Hartley.
